North Carolina To Issue Scarlet Letter License Plates To Undocumented Immigrants
The license plates have the words “NO LAWFUL STATUS” in bold pink.
The American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina…takes issue with the designation.
“North Carolina should not be making it harder for aspiring citizens to integrate and contribute to our communities by branding them with a second-class driver’s license,” said ACLU attorney Raul Pinto. “There is simply no reason for officials to stigmatize people who are in the U.S. legally with an unnecessary marker that could lead to harassment, confusion, and racial profiling.”
