Latino legislators back illegal immigrant's bid to practice law

July 20, 2012

California's Latino state legislators have stepped up to support an illegal immigrant and law school graduate seeking permission to practice law in the state.

The 23-member California Latino Legislative Caucus has submitted a brief to the California Supreme Court urging it to approve Sergio Garcia's admission to the State Bar of California. The State Bar has certified to the court that Garcia has met all requirements for admission to the State Bar and urged that he be admitted.
