How in the world could an illegal even sit for the bar exam???? Do they not have any requirements for applying to take the test? Just the fact that they are illegally here means they have broken the law. THAT alone should prevent them from any type of official licensure in ANY state of the USA

Could be big money in civil litigation and personal injury law - especially when lawsuits are created by illegals. Give him a few years and he'll be running for public office (as an illegal).

It really irks me to no end when illegals compare their "fight" to that of American people who were US citizens and rightfully in the US, who fought for their rights during the civil rights movements.

Quote:
In April, Godinez-Samperio told MSNBC, “It makes me feel that we’re living in a … historical moment. I really think the last time something like this happened was when African Americans and women were admitted to the bar. I think if we win this, it’ll be another historical civil rights mark.”
What law firm would hire an illegal? Illegals cannot sign any legal documents on behalf of the firm to courts nor can they represent anyone in court. I wonder what a law firm would do if they read the following:

Quote:
There are no citizenship or residency requirements for admission to the bar, Fishkin noted. In fact, he claims illegal-alien attorneys are currently practicing in California because they received their licenses before bar examiners inquired about citizenship


I would think if bar examiners found out that someone was illegal their license would be revoked.

Our consititution and laws have to be amended to specifically include "US citizen" because it seems that the absence of referring to "US citizen" is a reason for illegals to use to get what they want.

There is no requirement to even have a visa to take the bar, much less a citizen. Japanese companies frequently send over employees to take the exam so that they can represent the company in US courtrooms.

Illegal entry is a crime, but it is a misdemeanor. If the bar kicked out every lawyer who ever committed a misdemeanor....
(no wait, maybe that isn't a bad idea)

I don't care what it is called. Illegal entry merits deportation. Many of them have entered our country more then once illegally and that is a felony.

No doubt a tactic of La Raza, CAIR, and others.

It doesn't necessarily merit deportation by the Obama administration. They are making up the rules as they go along. What should be important is that the American Bar Association not turn a blind eye. The problem would seem to be that if illegal aliens are not procecuted for their illegal entry then there will be no record stopping them from entry to the Bar.

Why yes, this one is SO easy...there is a moral fitness requirement which applicants must meet in order to get a law license. The idea that someone could break the law and get a license to practice law is eye-rolling.

With this new "guest worker" program I'll wager he now CAN get that license.
There's also DREAM students that plan to become teachers.

There was an article yesterday where they interviewed several students in CA universities and they are overjoyed that they can now apply for jobs with their degrees.

For Thailandia Alaffita, a 24-year-old illegal immigrant and University of Texas graduate who dreams of being a middle school teacher in Houston, the announcement meant a chance at getting her own classroom.
