    This is why america is the laughingstock of the world. What other country allows foreigners to BREAK THE LAW by invading their country and then allows them to openly admit their crime and still practice law???

    Attorneys for the Committee of Bar Examiners argued that while Congress has explicit authority to regulate immigration it has "no clear and manifest purpose" in overseeing attorney admissions. That power in California resides with the state Supreme Court, the attorneys said.

    Bar Examiners Make Case for Undocumented Immigrant's Admission

    If Garcia had been convicted of a felony, the Bar would have turned him down his application. However, enter the US illegally for the for first time is a misdemeanor not a felony. Also, the courts have not taken any legal action against Garcia, so how can the bar association deny his application?

    Simple, he is not a legal immigrant. Doesn't take a university bought brainwashing to figure that one out.

    No, not unless the bar association rules and state law forbids the licensing of undocumented immigrants.

    Entering the country illegally is a crime, a misdemeanor if the immigrant attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact. Since Garcia was brought to this country when he was 17 months old he certainly would not be found guilty of any crime. He would only be guilty of the civil offense of being in this country without documentation, it the court so ruled. However, since no court has ruled on this, he is guilty of nothing.

    Yes, a few dull witted Florida lawmakers wanted to eliminate the Bar's role in admitting attorneys, and let the legislature decide. That went over like a lead balloon. If he has applied for a visa, no problem. If not granted one, he loses the right to practice. This is matter of separation of powers, not 'an illegal' sneaking over the line of hate. There soon will be no Statue of Liberty, those fixated on 'illegals' will tear it down. The call for criminal punishment for those who hire aliens, sometimes finance the entry, and pay wages below the legal minimum remains non existent.
