    I know Sergio personally. He would be a fine addition to the CA Bar. As for his status as an illegal alien, some how that seems silly since he was brought here by his parents at such a young age and has been raised in this country. In the years I went to school w/ Sergio he was just another college kid, no different from any other kid on campus.

    If he can survive college and law school, and pass one of the most difficult bar exams in the country, why can't he take the necessary steps to become "documented?" These all take money and smarts - if he can't do it, what chance do the rest of them have? Is becoming documented that difficult? Just sayin' . . .

    Immigration lawyers! Of course they would be totally unbiased in this matter. They are praying for a "domino effect" like this to boost their business. ROFL
