STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Senate Democratic Leader David Schapira released the following statement in response to Governor Brewer’s executive order barring the issuance of public benefits, Arizona driver’s licenses and State identification to individuals granted Deferred Action by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
"By issuing an executive order with questionable impact, Governor Brewer has shown again that she'll jump at the chance to grandstand for political attention, but she is not at all interested in finding real solutions to immigration," said Sen. Schapira.
"Comprehensive immigration reform at the federal level is desperately needed, including adoption of the DREAM Act. It's time for Tea Party Republicans like Brewer and for members of Congress to put aside their partisan games and get to work on this critical issue."
