NC Immigrant Driving Licenses Released
CHARLOTTE, N.C.-- New NC driver's licenses for undocumented immigrants roll out today.
The design of the licenses won't be pink, but they will say "no lawful status" on them. That language is still upsetting some immigration activists- they say it will encourage racial profiling.
NC Department of Transportation says that state law requires different ID for citizens depending on their legal status. Despite the concerns, immigration activists in Charlotte say they are celebrating.
Only people enrolled in the national Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program get driver's licenses, and they expire in about two years.
