The North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles is waiting for a legal opinion from the State Attorney General before continuing to issue driver's licenses to some immigrants.
Until recently, the DMV allowed young immigrants who had been granted a two-year work permit to get state driver's licenses.
The American Civil Liberties Union and the North Carolina Justice Center want state officials to reinstate the policy.
They claim that the immigrants are legally present and are eligible for the documents.
A group of immigrants' rights advocates is on its way to Washington D.C. to demand immigration reform.
During a stop in Charlotte, the group called the current system "broken."
They said many people are deported for petty crimes.
The group wants a new reform law passed this year.
