Governor Pat McCrory signed a bill into law last week that restricts policies of so-called sanctuary cities and requires local law enforcement to work with immigration officials. The law also bans the use of non-governmental identification by police and other governmental agencies. 

Protestors say the measure is racist and unnecessary. The legislation also includes a provision to limit extension of food stamp benefits beyond 90 days in a three-year period for certain recipients. 

Host Frank Stasio talks with WUNC reporter Jorge Valencia about the latest.
