I’m not quite seeing the problem, here.
From the “some people are never satisfied” files: you wanted us to give illegal immigrants driver’s licenses, but now you’re complaining about the color?
A new North Carolina driver’s license set to be issued to some illegal immigrants has a bright pink stripe and the bold words “NO LAWFUL STATUS,” raising concerns about whether the design will brand those who show it.
Ooh, nice use of the code-word, there. “Brand.” Because you know who else used to get branded? Slaves. So if you support these driver’s licenses having a big pink stripe and the word’s “no lawful status,” then you support slavery.
Even if [illegal immigrant waiting for a license] is able to get one, she is worried about presenting a license declaring she has “NO LAWFUL STATUS” at a police roadblock or while writing a check at the grocery store.
“A lot of us are just scared,” said Marroquin, who came to the U.S. from Mexico when she was 15. “We just want to be able to get a job and drive to work. Having that license is just going to show everybody you’re here illegally, just buying a beer or writing a check.”
Well, yes. I’m not quite seeing the problem.
