Non-lawyer Tata still apparently reviewing Attorney General letter

Two weeks ago, the new Transportation secretary said he’d do whatever the law required on the question of issuing driver’s license to young immigrants who’d obtained “deferred action” status under President Obama’s new initiative from last summer. One week ago, the state Attorney General told him what the law says (a fact not really open to dispute) in a three-page letter . Here’s the conclusion:
“As such, N.C. Gen. Stat. 20-7(s) , which states that DMV shall issue a drivers license of limited duration to persons who present valid documentation demonstrating deferment and meet all other statutory requirements, requires that such license be issued.”
It’s now been a week and Tata is still “reviewing it.” Meanwhile, thousands of good kids suffer for no good reason. Come on, General, decide.
