NC DMV's Requirements to Obtain a Driver License Must Immediately Reflect Attorney General Cooper's Statement

Follow this Campaign on Facebook

UPDATE: Attorney General Cooper made an official statement today clarifying that DACA holders do hold legal presence and that by NC state law are entitled to obtain a driver license. Call his office to thank him and ask that this be reflected in the DMV's requirements to obtain a license immediately!

MAKE A CALL: (919) 716-6400

Sample script:
 "Hi, I am calling to thank Attorney General Roy Cooper for clarifying that DACA holders have a right to obtain driver licenses by NC state law. I ask that this official statement be reflected in the DMV's requirements for driver licenses immediately. Thank you!”

Also, call the NC DMV directly and tell them that Attorney General Cooper has clarified DACA holders possess legal presence. Tell him the DMV's requirements to obtain a driver license should reflect this immediately!

Eric Boyette (NC DMV Commissioner) - (919) 861-3015

Sample script: "Hi, I am calling to ask that the NC DMV adhere to the statement made by Attorney General Cooper saying DACA holders have a right to obtain driver licenses by NC state law. I ask that this official statement be reflected in the DMV's requirements for driver licenses immediately. Thank you!”

---------------------------------------------------------

Attorney General Roy Cooper is holding our licenses hostage! He was asked for clarification from the NCDMV that DACA recipients hold legal presence since September of last year. Why has he not come out publicly to say immigrant youth granted DACA hold legal presence and settle this confusion once and for all?

MAKE A CALL: (919) 716-6400

Sample script: "Hi, I am calling to urge Attorney General Roy Cooper to reverse the backwards policy of denying driver’s licenses to recipients of deferred action. According to NC state law, all it takes to get a driver license is legal presence. Please reinstate the issuance of driver licenses to DACA holders now.”

In the meantime, the NC DMV has changed their requirements to obtain a license, specifically excluding DACA holders (code c33). This is senseless as it keeps immigrant youth from driving to the same jobs they've been authorized to work at. Make one last call!

NC Department of Transportation - (919) 707-2800

Sample script: "Hi, I'm calling to urge NC Department of Transportation Secretary Tony Tata to reverse the backwards policy of denying driver licenses to recipients of deferred action. They have been authorized to legally work, let them drive!”

The Petition

To NC Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Tata, NC Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioners, and Attorney General Roy Cooper:

The NC Department of Motor Vehicles made a big mistake in refusing to issue driver licenses to immigrant youth in North Carolina. It was a decision based on petty politics, bad information, and just plain spite.

I thank you, Attorney General Cooper, for clarifying in today's statement the fact that DACA holders are entitled to obtaining a driver license under North Carolina State law because they possess legal presence. I ask that this be reflected in the NC DMV's requirements to obtain a driver license immediately.

Thank you!
