PHOENIX -- Gov. Jan Brewer lit the dome on the historic Capitol building Thursday night after protestors tried to drown out her comments.

Several dozen people chanted "Let the Dreamers drive,' a reference to her directive not to issue licenses to those in the "deferred action' program announced last year by the Obama administration. Brewer contends they do not meet the requirements of Arizona law that they are "authorized' to be in the country.

Brewer avoided the entrance to the outdoor event, allowing her to bypass the protestors.

"We are here to celebrate the lighting of the dome,' she told Capitol Media Services.

"I appreciate the fact they came and participated,' Brewer continued. "You know, we're all Arizonans.'

But the governor balked when asked why, if they are "all Arizonans' they do not deserve state licenses to drive.

"Well, well,' she said, walking off.

The dome lighting capped the year-long celebration of Arizona's 100 years as a state.
