Illegal Alien Granted Law License
Illegal Alien Granted Law LicenseCommentary by Sanford D. Horn
January 4, 2014
Whose country is this anyway? Has the white flag of surrender been raised as the illegals continue their march toward brazen, in our faces, thumbs in our eyes, mockery of American civilization and culture?
Apparently in California, the answer to the latter question is a resounding yes, as the Supreme Court of the Golden State granted a law license to an illegal alien allowing him to practice law in the land of fruits and nuts. This is beyond outrageous.
Yet it’s not as simple as it seems. After all, Sergio Garcia, 36, a Mexican national living illegally in the United States since he was 17 months old when his parents unlawfully entered this country, is still not legally permitted to hire on with a law firm or any other business. Federal law prohibits illegals from being hired by businesses, as they are obligated to confirm the legal status of all applicants.
Thank the California Supreme Court for creating this idiosyncratic quagmire. The justices, in their inimitable stupidity grant a lawbreaker the right to practice law, but then he is just as quickly handcuffed by the very system allowing him this privilege. Make no mistake, this is an absolute travesty of justice and hopefully there will be some way to prevent Garcia from ever practicing law in California or any of these United States.
The court’s opinion does grant Garcia the right to practice law pro bono, but is also legally obligated to advise potential clients of his status, although said potential clients are under no obligation of their own to confirm the status of someone with whom they enter into a contract.
“We assume that a licensed undocumented immigrant will make all necessary inquiries and take appropriate steps to comply with applicable legal restrictions and will advise potential clients of any possible adverse or limiting effect the attorney’s immigration status may pose.” This insanity comes directly from the court opinion. It’s insane because the court makes a bold assumption that a person in this country illegally will abide by the law, and we all know what happens when we assume!
Once again, an illegal alien is rewarded in the United States. In many other countries illegals are imprisoned or otherwise punished. Mexico itself has some of the harshest laws pertaining to illegals entering its borders, but is more than just a little cavalier regarding those who would leave that country in search of a better life elsewhere, even one lived underground.
Yet, once in the United States, illegals are treated to free medical care, public education, food stamps, driver’s licenses, and other forms of entitlements simply for being in this country. This, along with the bastardization of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution must stop at once or the United States will cease to exist as the beacon of freedom it has long exemplified, but instead, descend into third-worldism.
Section 1 of Amendment XIV: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside…”
The purpose of this amendment, ratified July 9, 1868, was to confer citizenship upon recently freed slaves, not the corruption of the law by illegal aliens who sneak into the United States and give birth to a child on American soil. These anchor babies are then considered legal citizens by virtue of an illegal act that brought their parents to this country in the first place.
In Garcia’s case, he wasn’t even born in the United States, yet he managed to graduate from Chico State University and Cal Northern School of Law prior to passing the California state bar exam in 2009. How did he even gain admission to these schools in the first place? Did Garcia pay in-state or out of state tuition? What forms of identification did Garcia present in school, when taking the LSAT, and the bar exam? Perhaps Garcia is guilty of perpetrating a fraud upon the state of California, yet he is rewarded with a law license.
Institutions of higher learning allowing illegal aliens to matriculate should lose federal and state funding. Schools with the two-tiered system of in-state and out of state tuition allowing illegal aliens to enroll are guilty of discrimination against out of state residents who are citizens or legal residents of the United States.
The United States is long past the time to continue turning blind eyes away from the insidious pandemic of illegal immigration. Rewarding criminals for their illegal activities must stop immediately and all entitlements suspended permanently.
In Washington, DC, both major political parties are at fault for the perpetuation of the rise in population of illegal aliens, now approaching 20 million, regardless of official government figures. The Democrats see illegal aliens as future Democrats for life upon the granting of amnesty. Republicans, on the other hand, see illegal aliens as a form of cheap labor in an effort to curry favor with the businesses that hire them without penalty, making the GOP just as guilty.
While it is politically correct to support keeping families together, the answer is to deny illegal aliens any and all entitlements in the hopes of self-deportation. Keeping families together is an excellent idea – in their native countries. Come to America the right and legal way with a desire to make America your home, a better place than it was, and not just a place to steal from those citizens and legal residents paying taxes to support your demands for something for which you are not owed or entitled.
We the people of the United States must be vigilant in fighting for what is right, moral, legal, and just. Otherwise there will be no United States to welcome legal immigrants who arrive with a dream and a desire to thrive in the greatest country on earth.
