Victory for Immigrant Drivers in North Carolina

Orange County Justice United in North Carolina won an agreement from District Attorney James Woodall that has the potential to save Latino drivers tens of thousands of dollars a year in court fines and fees.

A year-long issue campaign culminated in a 600 person action on March 28, 2017 where the District Attorney publicly committed to a deferral program for unlicensed yet otherwise safe drivers. The program will assist Latino drivers in Orange and Chatham County who have paid roughly $1.3 million in citations after a change in state policy in 2006 rendered them ineligible to apply for or renew their licenses without a social security number.
