Law License Granted to Illegal Immigrant
In SF, California, The Supreme Court has recently allowed a law license to a male individual who has resided in the U.S for 20 years, illegally. This law brings hope of the possibility of immigrants searching to enter the fields of medicine, accounting and teaching in the U.S.
The decision that was passed means that Sergio, who had previously attended law school, can start once again practicing law. This case is the last in a long line of legislative victories.
The California Supreme Court agreed with the state officials pertaining to this case, which in turn made them against the White House. The new law has been put into effect.
Multiple questions are still unanswered, an example being whether or not Sergio can show up in higher courts, such as federal. The reason this question is asked, is due to the current federal law in place prohibiting him from doing so.
Sergio Garcia, has come a long way since he first arrived in the U.S. When he first arrived in his teens, his and his father’s only work was picking fruit, and nuts. Earlier, most of the Supreme Court was reluctant when granting Garcia his license. Claimin that they were unable to do so unless the Legislature allowed.
Attorney General Kamala Harris in California support Sergio Garcia’s petition, and was very pleased with the outcome, even with the differing of opinions when it came to other Attorney Generals.
Thirteen States including California made the decision to grant driver’s licenses to those residing in the U.S illegally.
Since Garcia’s case, two others have arisen in Florida and New York. And currently Obama’s administration has clearly spoken that they will oppose each and every case unless the State in question passes a law in order to allow the practice.
Sergio previously worked in various different farm jobs, and then at a small family owned grocery store prior to attending school to become a paralegal. He passed the bar exam on his first attempt showing the extreme urge to claim his spot in the legal field.
His application for citizenship – which was sent in around 1994, still remains pending.
