Jan Brewer Broadens Hateful Driver's License Ban Beyond DREAMers

Don't know how many of you are familiar with British conspiracy theorist David Icke, the guy who believes a secret race of shape-shifting lizard people have populated the planet in the guise of our political and cultural leaders, but I'm beginning to believe Icke's not spouting bunkum and has been right all along.

How else to explain someone as pro-actively hateful as Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, and her mean-spirited policy of denying driver's licenses to DREAMers who qualify for President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals?
