Denia Perezs parents brought her from Mexico to the United States illegally when she was 11. Last month, she became among the first of the so-called Dreamers to earn a law degree. And now, she and others are using their lawyerly know-how to take on the system so they can legally practice.

This is exactly why this nation will not survive another 5 years
And somehow I bet it’s on our dime, instead of graduating with 6-figure debt like American students.
The test is unfair.
The test must be adjusted to allow everyone to pass.
Everyone in a protected class, anyway.
Oppose them in every state they attempt to be admitted to the Bar.
In most states regular folk can present a case to not admit and bring evidence of unfitness. Stop them. Stop them now.
Yes, an example of one absolutely proves the truth of the thesis for the remaining 399,999.
My daughter graduated Law School last year. Has passed the Bar in two states and had to jump though all kinds of hoops to get the licenses. In addition to passing the bar, she was required to pass ethics tests, criminal background checks, be finger printed and finally be recommended by a bar member in good standing.
No way in hell should any criminal illegal be allowed to practice law in the USA.
Just like Soetoro, the Law Board will never question them when they lie about their citizenship and aliases.
And exactly what law was that ?
