This should be done in all 50 States. No benefits at all for illegal aliens.

Bruja finally figured out how to use an Executive Order? Who finally clued her in, on the power of an Executive Order?

Instead of the ridiculous SB 1070, she could have issued an Executive Order mandating all Arizona Law Enforcement participate in the ICE Program 287(b). It would have accomplished the same thing without any of the controversy.

Well, at least it might have kept the SCOTUS out of the picture.

"Might have". Since Program 287(b) is nationwide delegation of authority from ICE to local law enforcement, to enforce immigration laws. It has been firmly entrenched in almost all 50 states since about 2006 or so, and AG Holder wouldn't have any basis to sue Arizona.

Yep.Well I have got to admit ignorance on all of this but it was a very interesting turn of events here that I favor....
I really don't know at this point how these "executive order" things work and what trumps what or the rules involved....I could say there are and I would assume so.....But I see what you say here...Insofar as "basis goes...Was Cartlos Garcia referring to The community of American citizens there...that would stand against Brewer...? Or another "community"?

Well, as I indicated, the Excutive Order (whether issued by the POTUS, state governor, or even city mayor), is generally ordered as an extension of an already approved law or delegated authority by a legislating body. Generally, as a means of clarification or to close an unintended loop hole.

In the case of Gov Jan, she's merely re-affirming existing laws, and in a tit-for-tat with Obama's quasi-Dream Act Executive Order, she put a twist on the existing laws. In that, by virtue of the mini-Dream Act, illegal immigrants won't be able to extend their new "rights" to Arizona public benefits.

Quite the brilliant move, I must say. She musta sobered up. Briefly?

I guess that unlike Obama she believes that the government should be controlled by the people not the other way around.
