Letters: Xenophobia in Arizona?

August 19, 2012

Re "U.S. immigrant effort countered," Aug. 16

Xenophobia appears to be running deep within the veins of Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer. While President Obama giveth with one hand, Brewer taketh away with the other.

Her mean-spirited actions denying driver's licenses and benefits to young undocumented immigrants granted deferred temporary legal status under the new federal program are not only an embarrassment, they're just not the American way.

The hopes and dreams of these young people are much the same as ours. They too want a good education to succeed. And given the opportunity, they'll become productive taxpaying citizens and an asset to our nation.
