H.B. 786: Too High a Price to Pay for Risky Driver's Permits
A controversial bill under consideration in the North Carolina Senate would grant limited driving privileges to undocumented immigrants in North Carolina while also imposing an Arizona-style racial profiling law and other harsh provisions for people suspected of being in the country illegally. While the ACLU of North Carolina supports giving full driver's licenses to all qualified drivers, regardless of immigration status, we cannot support any measure that would require immigrants to surrender basic civil rights in order to gain driving privileges. The ACLU-NC therefore opposes H.B. 786.
The below infographics in English and Spanish help illustrate the costs and benefits H.B. 786 would have for North Carolina's immigrant community. You can read more about our position under the "Immigrant Rights" section of this page.
