    NC legislators offer driving permits and new restrictions for illegal aliens

    NC legislators offer driving permits and new restrictions for immigrants here illegally

    By Bruce Siceloff and Anne Blythe The_News_and_Observer

    RALEIGH — More than 300,000 North Carolina immigrants who are not in the United States legally would have a new chance to become legal drivers under sweeping legislation proposed Wednesday in the General Assembly – but the state also could make their lives harder with new restrictions, stepped-up immigration enforcement actions and tougher treatment in the jails and the courts.

    Four House Republicans led by Rep. Harry Warren of Salisbury filed a bill that would offer restricted driver’s permits to “undocumented aliens” not in the country legally, if they had lived in North Carolina for a year.

    They would have to submit to criminal background checks. Their driving permits would include images of their thumbprints.

    Echoing provisions of an Arizona law that was upheld last year by the U.S. Supreme Court, Warren’s bill also would authorize law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of anyone they stop, detain or arrest, “where reasonable suspicion exists that the person ... is an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States.”

    The bill also would:
    Reduce prospects for pretrial release of “undocumented aliens” charged with violent felonies, other serious criminal cases and traffic violations.

    Require any “undocumented alien prisoner” to repay the state for the cost of incarceration. It was not clear whether this requirement for reimbursement would include cases where the prisoner was not found guilty of a crime.

    Make it a felony to possess a phony driver’s license or to use someone else’s license.

    Make it a felony to make or sell a phony government ID card, in most cases. It would still be only a misdemeanor if the card was used by an underage person to buy alcohol or cigarettes.

    Put restrictions on the types of documents that can be used to confirm a person’s identity or residency with government officials. A matricula consular or other document issued by a foreign consulate or embassy would not be accepted. No ID cards issued by any person, organization or agency would be accepted either, unless it was expressly authorized by the General Assembly.

    One section of the bill, without reference to immigrants or aliens, would give the state new power to seize and sell automobiles in cases where someone was driving without a license or without liability insurance.

    Warren’s bill comes just a few weeks after the state Division of Motor Vehicles began issuing driver’s licenses to young immigrants participating in a federal program that defers their deportation for two years.

    Since March 25, DMV has issued licenses to more than 1,500 immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children or stayed here illegally after their visas expired.

    ‘About accountability’
    State government and local law enforcement officials say the licenses will make the roads safer – in a state where one out of every seven accidents involves someone driving without a license, and frequently without insurance.

    “It’s really about accountability and safety,” Transportation Secretary Tony Tata said last week at a state Board of Transportation meeting. He was speaking of the program that started March 25, with DMV issuing licenses to participants in the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

    “Many of the individuals who are obtaining licenses have mentioned, ‘I’ve been driving.’

    So now they’ve taken the test, they’ve got the insurance and now they’ve got a license.”

    North Carolina would become the fifth state to grant driving privileges to those who are unable to prove legal residency – joining New Mexico, Washington state, Illinois and Utah.

    California and Maryland are considering similar measures.

    North Carolina changed its laws in 2006 to block those in the country illegally from renewing their licenses. This came after several years when state leaders made it easy to get a license so that all drivers, regardless of their immigration status, had insurance and understood driving laws. As a result, North Carolina became a magnet for immigrants who came her from other states to get a driver’s license.

    Warren’s legislation seeks to avoid a repeat of that experience. Its proposed driver’s permits would not be available to immigrants who moved to North Carolina after April 1 of this year.

    Became law notwithstanding the objections of the Governor at 9:20 a.m. this 4th day of September, 2013.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF NORTH CAROLINA
    SESSION 2013
    SESSION LAW 2013-418
    HOUSE BILL 786

    AN ACT TO REQUIRE THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY TO STUDY MEASURES FOR ADDRESSING THE PROBLEM OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IN THIS STATE; AND TO CLARIFY WHICH EMPLOYERS ARE SUBJECT TO THE STATE'S E-VERIFY LAWS.

    Whereas, the North Carolina General Assembly recognizes that the issue of immigration is the responsibility of the federal government; and Whereas, the federal government has failed to address the need for enforcement of existing immigration laws or to act decisively to correct, amend, and reform existing immigration procedures and policies; and Whereas, federal courts have consistently upheld the authority of the federal government to restrict the efforts of states to uphold and enforce federal immigration laws in order to protect their citizens and their economies; and Whereas, the federal government has endowed illegally present aliens with certain entitlements to be provided by the various states via unfunded mandates; and Whereas, those unfunded mandates and the failure to address illegal immigration places an unwarranted strain on our State's law enforcement agencies, educational institutions, and social safety nets and undermines our trust in the rule of law; and Whereas, the General Assembly of North Carolina recognizes its responsibility to protect and defend the citizens and the economy of the State of North Carolina; and Whereas, North Carolina recognizes that the greatness of this State is the result of appreciating, incorporating, and welcoming the vast diversity of immigrants who lawfully assimilate into the culture and fabric that is North Carolina; and Whereas, we do now encourage the North Carolina congressional delegation to exert the strongest effort possible to enact appropriate federal legislation to secure our nation's borders, uphold existing immigration laws, and reform the procedures and policies regarding the immigration process in order to facilitate an even and orderly process for those wishing to immigrate to our country; and Whereas, we encourage the President to work in a dedicated and cooperative fashion with Congress to restore dignity and transparency to the immigration process; and Whereas, the wealth, beauty, and strength of North Carolina rests not only with her natural attributes of mountains, beaches, and abundant resources but in the character of her people and their ability to address problems and challenges before them with an objective resolve tempered with a sense of fairness and consideration for all people; Now, therefore,The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts:

    SECTION 1.(a) The Department of Public Safety, in conjunction with the agencies and industries described in subsection

    (b) of this section, shall study the potential impact on public safety, the State economy, and illegal immigration to this State of adopting any or all of the following measures:

    (1) Increasing the penalties for crimes related to the possession, manufacture, or sale of false drivers licenses and other identification documents.

    (2) Creating a rebuttable presumption against the pretrial release of undocumented aliens who commit serious crimes.

    (3) Requiring a secured appearance bond as a condition of pretrial release for undocumented aliens who have committed serious crimes.

    (4) Requiring undocumented alien prisoners to reimburse the State for the cost of their incarceration after conviction of a crime.

    (5) Establishing standards of reasonable suspicion to guide law enforcement officers in conducting immigration status checks when conducting a lawful stop, detention, or arrest.

    (6) Prohibiting the use of consular documents from being considered a valid means of establishing a person's identity by a justice, judge, clerk, magistrate, law enforcement officer, or other State official.

    (7) Implementing a process for undocumented aliens to obtain a temporary driving privilege. This portion of the study shall:
    a. Examine the impact that such a process would have on highway safety, insurance rates, and claims for accidents that occur at the hands of the uninsured.
    b. Estimate the number of individuals who would seek to obtain a temporary driving privilege through such a process.c. Determine whether there are adequate insurance products available to insure individuals who obtain the temporary driving privilege.d. Examine any other matters that the Division of Motor Vehicles deems relevant.(8) Adopting measures that have been adopted in other States to combat the problem of illegal immigration.

    SECTION 1.(b) In conducting the study required by this section, the Department of Public Safety shall consult with the Department of Insurance, the Division of Motor Vehicles, the Department of Commerce, representatives of the service and agricultural industries, representatives of the immigrant community, and any other agencies, institutions, or individuals that the Department deems appropriate.

    SECTION 1.(c) The study shall examine the potential impact of the measures described in subsection (a) of this section:(1) On the State economy.(2) On the community of lawful immigrants in this State.(3) On the provision of social services.(4) On tax collection.(5) On law enforcement.(6) In light of the impact of similar measures enacted in other states on these areas.(7) In light of their relation to the uncertainty that all businesses, including the high-tech, agriculture, hospitality, and other service sectors endure under our current federal system. The Department of Commerce shall be the lead coordinating agency for purposes of this subdivision.

    SECTION 1.(d) The Department of Public Safety shall report its findings and recommendations to the Chairs of the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Justice and Public Safety no later than March 1, 2014. The Department of Public Safety may use funds available to contract for services related to this study.
