(LA Times)   CA mandates that illegal immigrants, shining examples of abiding by the law, be issued a license to practice it. 1st beneficiary of the new law snuck in at 17 and faked papers. Bonus: not one instance of the word "illegal" in the article or headline   ( latimes.com) divider line

ToastTheRabbit: Meanwhile I have to pay a 50$ parking ticket because California never mailed me my new licenses plates. Where are my advocates?

I hear there's this new lawyer in CA.  You can hire him.

Mr_Fabulous: Muta: Can a 17 month old child be held responsible for breaking a law?

In fairness, some of those babies are just dicks sometimes.

/don't know what their problem is

Malicious gurgling and resisting a rest. Lock him up!

UrukHaiGuyz: give me doughnuts: Wolf_Blitzer: Pokey.Clyde: GoldSpider: Precisely. People don't understand that they would have a more compelling argument against illegal aliens if the naturalization process was made more reasonable.

More reasonable? You do realize that the U.S. is the easiest place in the world to legally immigrate to, don't you?

You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

The U.S. has been #1 for several years when it comes to immigrant population. We lead the nearest competition by 34,000,000.

Maybe cause we have a sign out front that says something about sending us "Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."

There are signs all over the southern border telling people to stay out, and nobody pays attention to those.

tricycleracer: I'd ask if this guy took Subby's "jerb", but it's clear that Subby doesn't possess the mental capacity to practice law.

Biological Ali: Is it really fair for Fark to be greenlighting headlines that were clearly written by retarded individuals? Exposing their obvious handicap to a wide and unsympathetic audience like this is just cruel.

I'd rather have illegal Mexicans than teabaggers any day. Illegal Mexicans love America.

Ivandrago: Three Crooked Squirrels: 2) that they have been screened for character and fitness.  As for whether he meets the character and fitness requirements, my personal opinion is that the screening is in place to try to screen out people likely to fleece their clients, which doesn't seem to apply to a person simply because the are living in the US illegally.*

*I think the argument could be made that there is a higher likelihood that they could abscond with a client's money.  My guess is that the argument was made, considered and rejected.

I told them everything when I did my character and fitness, including when I got kicked off campus and told I couldn't live in the dorms anymore when my undergrad roommate ratted on me for smoking pot in my dorm room. I have no idea how this guy passed character and fitness because they asked for everywhere I'd ever lived. I even had to give them my APO's for those two years I spent in Iraq.

I don't pretend to know how he passed, but he did.  CSB - one of my law school classmates got arrested a few times in law school.  A DUI and unpaid child support, I think.  He was law review, so he was no dummy, but when he applied for the bar (either in OK or TX, not sure which one), he was told to stay clean and reapply in one year.  Basically given a one year period to prove he got his act together.  He did, and reapplied and passed the bar.  His first job was with Enron.  I always thought it was kind of funny that the one guy I knew that had problems with character and fitness was hired out of the box by Enron.

Ok... So Jay Hernandez is an 'illegal' lawyer who takes cases American lawyers won't take. We get Edward James Olmos to play his dad, who uses folksy Chicano wisdom to help his son win his cases and do better in his personal life, and we got ourselves a show.

qorkfiend: Is there some reason that law licenses should be restricted to citizens only?

There does seem to be a general consensus that if you're going to be an officer of the court and sworn to uphold the law, you ought not to be in violation of it and have a history of deliberately flouting the law.
