Criminal Justice Quote: Mexican Citizens Can Practice Law in California

     An undocumented immigrant who has met the requirements to practice law in California must be given a legal license, the state's Supreme Court ruled Thursday [January 2, 2014] in a landmark case that could set a national precedent.

     The California Supreme Court ruled that Sergio Garcia, who first came to the United States from Mexico unlawfully as a child, must receive his license--the first decision of its kind in the U.S. that could affect other undocumented immigrants who hope to follow in his footsteps. Two similar cases are pending in Florida and New York.
