Brewer Bans Benefits for Deferred Action DREAMers

Posted By on Wed, Aug 15, 2012 at 4:49 PM

Governor Jan Brewer just issued an executive order banning illegal immigrants applying for permits under the federal government's Deferred Action program.

The order cites concerns that the estimated 80,000 Deferred Action recipients would put "significant and lasting" strain on the state's budget and public benefits systems.

The young immigrants eligible for the Deferred Action program would avoid deportation and earn permits allowing them to reside legally within the United States while they work toward citizenship.
