Kamala Harris

SAN FRANCISCO -- Sergio Garcia completed law school with the help of odd jobs and proceeds from a self-help book. Then he passed the state law exam on the first try.

But his goal to practice law in California remains unfulfilled because of his status as a Mexican immigrant living in the country without legal permission.

Garcia's case for admission to the state bar is now before the California Supreme Court, which will decide whether he should be allowed to practice law even though his immigration status makes employing him illegal.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris filed a brief with the court on Wednesday in support of Garcia's application. The court is also seeking input from the U.S. Department of Justice.

"Admitting Garcia to the bar would be consistent with state and federal policy that encourages immigrants, both documented and undocumented, to contribute to society," Harris wrote in her brief to the Supreme Court.

    You're damn right, she should lose her job! If the guy is here illegally, that precludes him from getting a job. What, doesn't E-Verify work in California?
    Couldn't she find someone just as qualified, that was already a US citizen?!
    You would think that someone who is supposed to understand the LAW, would realize that if the guy is here ILLEGALLY, he isn't supposed to get a job!

    WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT!!

    "Admitting Garcia to the bar would be consistent with state and federal policy that encourages immigrants, both documented and undocumented,"

    You'd think she and Garcia would know what "ILLEGAL" means. But then again, this is California. "Undocumented" means "ILLEGAL"!

    I don't understand how an illegal is able to go to law school and take the bar to begin with. Why didn't this guy become a citizen before taking the bar? Why does he even want to uphold the law in a country he hasn't sworn allegiance? If he invested a fraction of the time it took to become a lawyer into becoming a citizen then this wouldn't be an issue. I think the first thing they should do is make him become a legal citizen going through the proper channels and if he doesn't want to do it or can't do, deport his ass. None of this makes any sense, and this chick wants to let him pas through while keeping his illegal status? She needs to be impeached or recalled.

    First, the illegal should not have even been allowed to take the CA Bar. He should be deported like any and all other illegals. He certainly disqualifies himself as a lawyer in America by being a lawbreaker.

    Next, AG Harris is "elected", so getting rid of her would require impeachment or recall. Wonder if CA has the good sense to pursue this?
