North Carolina

NC does not grant undocumented students in-state status.

North Carolina's HB 318, 2015

This law doesn't deal with education. Regardless, NC Governor Pat McCrory signed the bill on Sept. 29th 2015. AKA the "Protect North Carolina Workers Act," HB 318 focuses on whether someone can be legally employed by the state, decreasing the number of acceptable forms of identification, and decreases accessibility to food stamps.

Unemployment increases because the bill increases the use of E-Verify on government-contracted businesses, while hypocritically exempting the agricultural industry, and ousts sanctuary cities, which are lenient toward undocumented immigrants.

Identification is now harder for some immigrants, because their home country's identification is now invalid because of HB 308, but it was not before.

It also allows the police to act as I.C.E. officers. Because the number of acceptable ID's have fallen, a police officer can report an individual to I.C.E. from a regular traffic stop situation.
