    AG: Give NC licenses to 'Dream Act' immigrants

    AG: Give NC licenses to 'Dream Act' immigrants

    RALEIGH -- North Carolina's top law enforcement authority says the state should issue driver's licenses to illegal immigrants who qualify for a federal deferred prosecution program.

    The office of Attorney General Roy Cooper on Thursday directed the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles to begin issuing driver's licenses to those granted federal work authorizations under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

    Federal authorities began accepting those applications in August from immigrants brought to the United States without authorization as minors. State DMV officials decided not to grant driver's licenses to those who qualified, pending direction on whether doing so would violate state law.

    In a three-page legal opinion, Cooper's office says issuing licenses to those participants is not only legal, but the DMV is required to do so.

    The driver license issue
    has been settled in some states, Texas, Virginia and Oregon among them, that have said they will allow driver's licenses for immigrants obtaining what the Obama administration calls "deferred action for childhood arrivals."
    Arizona and Nebraska have pledged to deny driver's licenses to anyone who benefits from the federal relief.

    Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah and Washington do not require drivers to provide citizenship or legal documentation to obtain a drivers license.

    Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio are planning to provide driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants who get work papers under a new federal policy.

    Even in some states that have passed strong anti-illegal immigration laws, such as Georgia, driver's licenses may be available to undocumented immigrants who qualify under the new policy.
    Under current Georgia law, people with deferred status can get a license, and that's what the state will do unless it gets different orders, said Susan Sports, spokeswoman for the state's Department of Driver Services.

    Can the Federal Government force and direct sovereign States to violate both Federal and State laws?

    Where can States draw the line?

    What if Holder put out a directive for States to immediately go to all PTSD veteran's homes and immediately confiscate their weapons?

    AG backs licenses for some illegal immigrants

    By MICHAEL BIESECKER - Associated Press

    RALEIGH, N.C. -- North Carolina should issue driver's licenses to illegal immigrants who qualify for federal work papers, the state's top law enforcement authority said Thursday.

    The office of Attorney General Roy Cooper, a Democrat, directed the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles to begin issuing driver's licenses to those granted federal work authorizations under the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

    The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement began accepting applications in August from immigrants brought to the United States without authorization as minors, granting those who qualify for work papers with an opportunity for renewal after two years.

    North Carolina typically grants driver's licenses to non-citizens with valid federal work papers. But before anyone under the new program applied for driver's licenses, then-state DMV Commissioner Mike Robertson directed his agency in September not to issue any pending direction from the attorney general on whether doing so would violate state law.

    In a three-page legal opinion issued Thursday, Cooper's office told newly-appointed DMV Commissioner Eric Boyette that issuing licenses to DACA participants is not only legal, but the DMV is required to do so.

    "It is therefore our opinion those individuals ... are lawfully present in the United States during the period of deferment," said the letter, which is signed by Chief Deputy Attorney General Grayson G. Kelley. "As such, (state law), which states that DMV shall issue a driver's license of limited duration to persons who present valid documentation demonstrating deferment and meet all other statutory requirements, requires that such licenses be issued."

    DMV officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

    The attorney general's opinion comes two days after DMV spokeswoman Marge Howell said 13 people with DACA papers had been mistakenly issued licenses since September. Those licenses are to be cancelled until the legal questions are settled, Howell said Tuesday.

    The issue sets up a potential conflict between Cooper and the Republican administration of Gov. Pat McCrory, who took office earlier this month.

    GOP lawmakers have been critical of the DACA program, which was enacted by the Obama administration in what the Democratic president described as the unwillingness of Congress to act on comprehensive immigration reform.

    Obama is a supporter of the Dream Act, which would provide a path to citizenship for qualified young immigrants brought to the United States when they were children.
