I think we are missing the point here. This article was written poorly as it make is seem that this guy has NO documentations whatsoever. The fact is that he has. With a green card you are allowed to work in the US. There are Lawyers from England and France who have American Green cards and practice law in two countries. Yet, we are ethnic baiting this guy because he is Mexican. Sergio I here legal. The crime is that the government told him to wait for his Green card, and he has been waiting for 19 year. In those 19 years, I too would have done something more productive with my life instead of just sitting here and wait. Also, keep this in mind, The “State Bar Exam” referred to in the article is misleading. It was created, administered, and governed by a PRIVATE organization called the CA Bar Association which is in no way a government agency. That means People with green card or work visas can take the exam. He has a green card, and he just want to practice Law now since the government is lagging on his green card.
