Brewer made it impossible for transplant recipients to get organs...
Death By Budget Cut: Poor People Denied Organ Transplants in Arizona''

So anyone should be surprised by her actions?''

Isn't this the woman that conjured up stories of headless bodies in the desert? Who votes these nuts into office?

not a minor distinction in any way, shape or form for what you typed and what is reality

legal citizenship is a very high standard and if you even put that in your mind as being on an equivilent of granting a work permit or deciding not to deport then there is a big gap in basic understanding

neither here nor there at this point though
Ok we are arguing legal semantics. While technically those obtaining these permits have no path to citizenship. They also will most likely never be deported. Even if Mitt Romney is elected he will not go after these kids, bad visual. Most likely this will end up like many other "temporary" programs. The DHS has been renewing visas for folks who fled Hurricane Mitch about 15 years ago.

When intellectual points fail resort to false racism charges.

Not that this is even remotely related to the topic being discussed, but at least give the entire story. Many states have been forced to reduce tax-funded benefits for expensive organ transplants and the required post-operative medications, which generally cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. And, illegal immigration has exacerbated this problem. In fact, some have closed clinics due to the overwhelming number of illegal aliens receiving these benefits at taxpayers' expense.

The agency approved Shepherd for a heart transplant more than a year ago, then recently reversed its decision. But he told NPR he's stopped being bitter because the agency paid for a pacemaker to serve as a temporary fix until he gets a new heart. Next year, he becomes eligible for Medicare and will seek help from the federal agency.

However, regarding the topic, Arizona, like all states, is well within its rights to deny driver's licenses and other benefits to illegal aliens. Obama's decree only defers their deportation. It does not confer legal status.

You're aware that this is merely an opinion piece by a rightwing bashing site, aren't you?

Why not link to the AlterNet article, or for that matter the NYT article from AlterNet, that your gay blog links to? The alternet article is taken so far out of context by your gay blog that it appears to be more in line with something from the Onion.

Are you aware that many states have done the exact same thing? Feds to allow California to cut millions of dollars from Medi-Cal - Los Angeles Times

Are you aware the Feds must approve those state cuts?

I'm not sure what some do not understand about the definition of ILLEGAL, it has nothing to do with who one is on a personal level it has everything to do with the fact they are ILLEGAL, going against the LAW.
Yes, you noticed in the heading it says 'anti-immigrant racism and hate.' No mention of illegal, but this is what they do, omit words, obfuscate, and outright lie.
