North Carolina Gov. McCrory: Stop Driver's License Discrimination Against DREAMers

To be delivered to Pat McCrory, Governor

Petition Statement

Governor McCrory,

Your decision to allow the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles to issue second-class drivers' licenses to DREAMers who have qualified for the deferred action program is offensive and discriminatory. There is no legal reason to treat these drivers as any different than other North Carolina residents. Please immediately reverse your decision and issue the same licenses to all qualified drivers.
There are currently 164 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was started to allow undocumented youth brought to this country as children (DREAMers) to come out of the shadows and apply for legal protection from unwarranted deportation (as well as state drivers' licenses).

Unfortunately, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory is using this opportunity as a way to remind DREAMers that he thinks they are second-class Americans who should be publicly branded as such.

Instead of giving approved applicants standard drivers' licenses, McCrory is instructing his state DMVs to issue special pink licenses with the phrase "NO LAWFUL STATUS" across the front.

This type of discrimination hearkens to ugly separate-and-unequal days of North Carolina's past, and should have no place in the 21st century.

Sign our petition to tell Governor McCrory to reverse his decision and stop discriminating against DREAMers in his state.
