Skip to comments.Sanctuary State: California Now Lets Illegals Practice Law, Get Licenses, Bars ICE Enforcement

With the new year comes new insane laws from California, making it officially America's Sanctuary State -- treating illegal aliens who broke the law to enter the U.S. as well as law-abiding citizens, protecting illegals from deportation, and putting public safety at grave risk.
In October, California Gov. Jerry Brown (D), signed eight bills handing special rights to illegal aliens. The controversial legislation includes allowing illegal alien obtain driver's licenses, preventing employers from denying jobs based on "immigration status", and barring state and local law enforcement from detaining illegal aliens when directed by ICE, DHS or Border Patrol. The legislation claims that this latter restriction only involves illegals without "serious crimes or convictions," but critics quickly pointed out that this was blatantly false.
But without a doubt the most controversial of all the new laws which took effect on January 1 is AB-1024, which authorizes the state Supreme Court, which approves requests of those seeking to become lawyers in the state, to admit all qualified applicants as attorneys, including "an applicant who is not lawfully present in the United States" -- illegal aliens.
The California Supreme Court wasted no time today in ruling that one plaintiff, Sergio C. Garcia, who entered the U.S. illegally at age 17, should be granted his law license, due to AB-1024's passage.
One critic pointed out the obscene hypocrisy in this decision:
"He can't say he is going to fulfill his duties as an attorney when one of those duties is to uphold all federal laws, when he's here illegally," Larry DeSha, a former prosecutor with the State Bar of California, told NPR. "And no one can administer the oath to him knowing he's going to be illegal the minute he puts his hand down. And the other thing is clients can't pay him money. And any client who finds out that he is illegal has to fire him under federal law."
Despite the controversy of AB-1024, the worst of all laws now in effect in California is by far AB-4 -- the Orwellian-titled "TRUST Act". AB 4 takes the unprecedented step of banning California law enforcement from honoring most requests from federal immigration authorities to hold criminal aliens.

The enemy within has opened the gates.
The invaders are conquering.
this would be highly laughable if it werent so Extremely GALLING
Illegal Lawyers...OH YEAH SURE...bring em ALL in.
I suppose, if you asked to see a birth certificate before you hired him, that would work.
More proof that our “judicial system” is the worst on the planet. Nothing but a joke that deserves absolutely zero respect of the American people. Our so called “courts” have drawn a bead on America. Criminals can now be “lawyers”. Of course, I think it may have always been that way.
Great! Now all we have to do is get California to also stop enforcing federal firearms laws, and allow Undocumented Firearms, such as short-barreled rifles, machine guns and silencers to be amnestied and sanctuary-ized. After all, think about those poor “illegal guns,” which didn’t do anything wrong themselves. (Unlike, say, people willingly crossing borders.)
I’m sure the Legislature could have made him legal. It’s sad that the legal system encroached where it doesn’t belong.
Why not? There is an illegal alien in the WH.
CA people are too busy driving in traffic jams to do much about anything.
No money for the boots in the military, but government at all levels can spend 100 billion tax dollars per year in medical care alone for illegal aliens...
It’s definitely a disgrace.
Just wait till the illegalmentes start running for office.
Statistically, I wonder how much revenue they suck up..and what they pay to Washington D.C. I know there are many farm subsidies, foodstamps, subsidized parks, highway upkeep, school lunch programs. My niece works at a job to get MONEY from the gub’mint to give away to schools that encourge kids to learn in Spanish sort of stuff. I see them in many ways as a welfare state, many on unemployment?.. Stats anyone?
Boehner is getting ready to give them all amnesty so they will be legal soon.
It’s all about replacing American voters with Mexicans.

Duties of Attorney
I solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of an attorney and counselor at law to the best of my knowledge and ability.
It is the duty of an attorney to do all of the following:
(a) To support the Constitution and laws of the United States and of this state.
Too late for this section!
Disgrace and betrayal.
Corrupt government at all levels..
When I was a kid, there the reasonably priced fuel, housing, energy, and affordable medical care for all, secure jobs with actual retirement pensions etc.
The world respected the U.S.
In fact, I never heard the news or my folks even discuss any these issues.
Now it’s all a crisis and we’re told were in debt and we owe...
This is a direct result of decades of reckless out of control corrupt government.
We’ve been sold out...Most know it...Those who don’t, eventually will.
They passed a law allowing him to become a lawyer..the court upheld the law.
CA is going down the drain and we can only hope that all their bene’s for illegals and slackers causes even more to move to CA and out of other Red states.
