RALEIGH - The Department of Transportation has reversed course on its plan to put a pink stripe on the driver's license of some immigrants. Critics called the pink license discriminatory and said it would stigmatize the people who held it.

Raul Pinto, staff attorney for the ACLU of North Carolina welcomed the reversal.

 

"We think that it is a huge step in the right direction. We think the public transportation did the right thing here because the differentiation is going to be much less visible without the pink stripe."

The DOT says not adding a pink stripe allows them to process licenses more efficiently.
