North Carolina is awarding illegal aliens a driver’s license. Under the illegal directive of the Obama administration and the misguided advice by States Attorney General Roy Cooper, the pathway to legitimacy is being afforded to those who have broken our immigration laws. What is really galling is the praise of the ACLU:
RALEIGH, N.C. — The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles will begin issuing driver's licenses to illegal immigrants who qualify for federal work papers, starting March 25.
Thursday's announcement by DMV Commissioner Tony Tata comes less than a month after the North Carolina attorney general's office said the agency was legally required to issue licenses to those qualified under the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.Federal authorities 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.
Immigrant advocacy groups and the state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union praised the decision by Republican Gov. Pat McCrory's administration as a victory for rule of law.
Victory for the rule of law? How is this a victory for the rule of law? The Obama administration for political purposes issued an executive order violating our Constitution. Under Article One Section Eight only Congress has the authority to establish the rules for naturalization; not the executive branch. This is anything but the rule of law. This is a victory for those who do not value their citizenship. This is a victory for those who believe laws only apply when it is to their benefit.
