San Francisco – In a unanimous decision, the California Supreme Court granted a law license to an undocumented immigrant, which advocates say could open doors for others who wish to enter certain professions. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Sergio Garcia, who has lived in the U.S. illegally for 20 years, attended law school, and passed the state bar exam, will now be able to immediately practice law.
As noted in the report, the court granted the request based on the recent approval of a law in California specifically giving authorization for the state to give licenses to immigrants who are not in the country legally.
The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles is quoted by the AP as stating of the ruling, “This is a bright new day in California history and bodes well for the future.”
