End the callous ban on driver's licenses for DREAMers
Q: Would you approve any state privileges (like a driver's license), to undocumented immigrants? (Do not include state university tuition for dreamers)
A: I've been traveling around Arizona and talking with CEO's and small business owners for more than
a year, and none of them understand why we're still defending a callous ban on driver's licenses for DREAMers. DREAMers are smart, talented, and driven young people, who have only known America as home.
They just want the opportunity to contribute to their communities. I've been traveling around Arizona talking with CEO's and small business owners and none of them understand why Jan Brewer is still pursuing this wrongheaded policy.
As governor, the very first thing I will do after taking the oath of office will be to rescind Governor Brewer's executive order and give our DREAMers the opportunity they deserve.

Comprehensive immigration reform will benefit economy
Our State and nation have a long history of benefitting economically and culturally from the contributions of people from diverse nations. When comprehensive immigration reform is passed in Washington, our economy will be better off for it.
Until then, we should take action to ensure that immigrant Arizonans who have been granted a legal right to work here are able to reach their full potential in our workforce by having access to in-state tuition and driver's licenses.
