North Carolina will grant driver’s licenses to deferred action recipients

The News and Observer is reporting this afternoon that the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles will start issuing drivers licenses to Deferred Action recipients on March 25, 2013.  The state will comply with the state attorney general’s ruling said Transportation Secretary Tony Tata.  Attorney General Roy Cooper’s office released a statement on January 17 stating that that participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program qualify for licenses because they are given work permits that prove their “legal presence” in North Carolina. That means they meet requirements set by state law for licenses issued to drivers who are not United States citizens.
