RALEIGH (October 30, 2015) — Now that Gov. Pat McCrory has signed the anti-immigrant bill HB 318 into law, the NC Justice Center has created a hotline where people can help track the impact of this policy.

The Justice Center is concerned that a broad interpretation of the law’s definition of “government official” will create problems for people seeking identification for vital services and for basic needs such as education. The Justice Center is also interested in the effects that other provisions of HB318 will have in local communities.

The Justice Center issued public statements on this issue both urging the governor to veto HB 318, and expressing disappointment after he signed it. If you experience problems as a result of the law, call the hotline: (919) 526-0676
