AG: Some Undocumented Immigrants Can Get NC Driver’s Licenses

John Cominsky, WBTV (Charlotte), January 17, 2013

The North Carolina Attorney General issued a letter to the Department of Motor Vehicles Thursday about their ruling in whether or not illegal immigrants can get temporary driver’s licenses in North Carolina.

In the statement, the NCDOJ says young illegal immigrants, under deferred action, can get temporary driver’s licenses in the state.

“It is therefore our opinion that individuals who have been granted deferred action under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy directive are lawfully present in the United States during the period of deferment.” the release states, “As such, N.C. Gen. Stat. 20-7(s), which states that DMV shall issue a drivers license of limited duration to person who present valid documentation demonstrating deferment and meet all other statutory requirements, requires that such licenses be issued.”

North Carolina had previously said it would not issue licenses for young people in the country illegally until the Attorney General ruled on the issue.

    It is not “undocumented immigrant”, it is Chicano Invader, or enemy combatant.

    Incremental surrender.

    Before 1964:
    Illegal = Illegal
    Legal = Legal

    After 1964:
    Illegal = Legal
    Legal = Racist

    NC had been one of the most traitorous states for some time. Squat monster invaders from across the nation would travel there to get driver’s licenses. Then for a short period of time, the state stopped the practice….

  • Why not? This is the perfect time to release an unending barrage while the enemy is weak.
    The white man is going to do NOTHING!
    After they get their driver’s licenses, what’s next?
    Full ride, room and board included, scholarships to 2.0 GPA illegals?
    Two votes for each minority?
    Siphon funds from white areas to pay for minority school districts?

    It’s the Salem Witch Hunts all over again. If you speak up against the practice, then you must be a witch yourself, and must be burned at the stake, along with your entire family, for they must also be witches.

    Your pimply faced sons are delightfully voting for the Democratic Party, and the spineless Republican Party is deathly afraid of being called an R word of a different sort.

    • The temporary licenses they will get will expire on the same date as their work permits. In TN, where I live the licenses will have the word “Temporary” on them to diferentiate the licenses that US citizens and Green card residents get.

        The word “temporary” means nothing to this government when it concerns their beloved illegal invaders. Temporary can be extended in perpetuity.

      it’s sad, Is a lot of Americans living in my country and we trheat them as they were our own people! it’s true they are legal there ( because we do not ask for a permit o live there) I’m not Mexican by the way!! I just wish we were citizens of the world! it’s jut sad that so many countries welcome Americans to live there but when tey come here and work as a camel they still have no rights.
      u know, u guys sound like a new age of hittler!

    Why do they need an American driver’s license? A Mexican one is valid in the USA. I can tell you what this is about, once they get an American driver’s, they can use that to vote, get social welfare etc. Of course they’ll vote for amnesty because they believe the gringo has an endless supply of money to hand to them. What they don’t realize is that eventually, they will kill the goose that laid the golden egg.

      Most don’t have a Mexican driver’s license. They didn’t own a car there, and Mexico doesn’t require them for mules either. 🙂

    • white males are out

      a mexican citizenship is valid in america too for a while but they have to have wheels to transport drugs all over the states plus obama is enabling them to get citizenship to make whites a minority. the drivers license is the first stage of being legal since if you have a license its only logical you can become an american citizen to vote for him in the next election since he is wanting a 3rd and 4th term.

      dont worry about constitutional amendments since they were all made by racist white men and obviously racist and will be changed to accomodate the new america.

    They’re going to drive anyway. Will they be required to have auto insurance in order to get the license? If so, this may be for the good. Of course, the ultimate good would be no amnesty and a one way ticket home.

    Not many have been able to see the effects of illegal immigration as close as I have. A town near me has been absolutely transformed over the past 15 years. It started with a few, then other hispanics took notice that a few hispanics were in the area, they told their friends, who told their friends, etc. etc. and it is now out of control. It has gotten so out of hand, that you could make a documentary going up to each suspected illegal immigrant, and ask if they can provide you with a green card or other ID.

    Common stores in the area include “Latino Express”, a store dedicated to shipping packages and transferring money back to Mexico and other hispanic countries, “El Pollo Loco” which is a chicken store, “Mi Terietta” a restaurant, “Envios Espinoza” which appears to be some travel agent or shipping store, and “Pollo Rico” another chicken store. Walls are now covered in graffiti including “SUR-13” which is the tag of MS-13, a Salvadorian gang known as one of the most violent, and Latin Kings.

    There is trash everywhere. Many white women in the area get sexually harassed by them whether it’s whistling, shouting at them, sometimes even taking pictures of them. You see shady Mexicans at 1 AM walking the streets with nothing to do. There have been tons of run ins with white youth and these illegal immigrants. One illegal was stabbed to death after an altercation, some were beaten, and tensions run very high. Recently, there have been low-income apartments built in the area, and we all know who that attracts. It truly amazes me that in America, a bunch of illegal immigrants can not only enter the US without being thrown out, but essentially take over a community. The town will never be the same, and it gets shadier every passing day. Please, do what you can to stop illegal immigration, because it WILL ruin your town.

      The U.S. should have never allowed immigration from Mexico. If you see a few you can bet there are more coming soon.

    So, how much is America really paying for that head of lettuce when you factor in the benefits.
