Group plans protest over birth certificates

About 40 people are expected to protest outside the Iredell County Register of Deeds office in Statesville on Monday morning. The protesters say Register of Deeds Matt McCall, who faces a primary challenge May 6, denied a birth certificate to Rolando Acosta for his newborn daughter, even though Acosta presented all required official documents, including a photo ID and his Mexican Consulate card.
