this is another foolish mistake,bad enough he was let go to school here. so letting this guy get his way goes back to the old debunked lie of illegal aliens only do the jobs a citizens will not do.

i am sure though this will be used and some will believe all illegal aliens can go this far.

Amazing! How could he pass a character and fitness review being an illegal alien?!!!

Where is his moral character when he is in our country illegally, in defiance of US laws?

Don't tell me, he is the only illegal alien who has not committed fraud of any kind, filed false documents, or identity theft...Right?!!!

Did ya hear? the person who won the PowerBall needed an interpreter, has lived in US for over 20 yrs and doesn't speak English!!!! Not sure, but do ya think this non English speaking, Spanish speaking 20 resident is an illegal alien?!!!

This country has allowed the fools in DC to turn this country into an amoral nanny state, where folks are allowed to pick and choose which laws they like and which they will disregard, where criminals have more rights than their victims, and where we must not hurt anybody's feelings. Right is wrong and wrong is right...topsy tuvy rules.

technically he is not an illegal immigrant. he came here legally. he is undocumented as he has no valid papers. to even get to the bar exam you have to pass a background check that goes through the national data base just as every teacher or foster parent has to. if he had participated in any of the things that you assume he did it would likely show up and he would not have risked it.

now as to your slanderous and elitist comments about the powerball winner; #1 he speaks english just fine.#2 he immigrated legally and has permanent residency. take your hate for successful and hard working immigrants and shut up.

undocumented is a worthless p/c word for illegal alien. changing the name means nothing.

He's a illegal alien. If he worked on any case against me i would file for a appeal because he has no legal status in the country and he is in the country against federal law.

Barry, first of all, use your noggin, if he used false names, the only thing that would show is the name that he wanted to use to establish himself as a lawyer. His being part of a drug cartel as a legal advisor, or as a mule for drugs and illegal aliens is not is Americas data base for checking on anyone...unless they have been convicted!!! Okay?!!!

I once lived above an illegal alien who had 4 bank accounts at the same bank!!! They were all under different versions of his name, he was committing fraud, okay? So don't so there!!

Now re our recent PowerBall winner!!!! I am only going by what the news reported, and what I actually saw in the video with this guy!!! He needed an translator, it was said he didn't speak English, it was established that he lived in NJ and America for at least 20 yrs, and that he was from the Dominican Republic! The article also said that, I believe, he overstayed his visa! This equals an illegal alien in American terms!!!

Now what part of what I have said is not factual?!!! Go soak you head!

Technically, he became an illegal the day his visa expired.

Sanctuary states ignore immigration laws and encourage illegals to remain with freebies, handouts and other perks that citizens don't get like free health care.

the power ball winner? regularly visits his old neighborhood in the DR. "His last Dominican trip came around Christmas 2011 and the locals are definitely looking forward to his next trek."

you can't and don't do that if you do not have papers.

so i will right now say that you made up the idea that you saw somewhere where in the news that "he overstayed his visa". wishful thinking on your part. now it is not uncommon to over stay a visa. it is easily fixed. so maybe in the 26 years that he was here he had a problem that was fixed but that in no way makes him an illegal alien.
as for his inability to speak english; he speaks it just fine. you, obviously are not bi-lingual. in emotional and exciting moments one becomes confused between the two languages and sometimes you can't find the word in either language. picking the language of his heart and having a translator prevents him from saying something dumb or being misundertsood. just look at what you are trying to imply from your obvious position of not liking brown skinned people who speak spanish.

now as to your claim about the law candidate; you obviously have never been through a high level back ground check. false names have to have relatives. this would show up. bank accounts also have to have ss#s or itn#s. four "different versions of his name" also sounds like something that you made up.

so let's assume you're onto something with this young man. with all the publicity that he is getting, don't you think that by now someone would have tipped off the news by now about any of those things you claim must have existed in his past?

no maggy, you just have a bad thing for brown skinned people who speak spanish.

He's lying in his bed counting the gold he's going to rack up against the American Government to defend illegals in this Country. He's counting the thousands of heads that he will stack up against this State and every other State he can sue over everything he can come up with. Disgusting... That he has any right's. And believe me, he'll cost American Tax Payers a fortune in the end. We are literally, getting more stupid as time goes by. Our Dear leader, cramming this mess down our throat's. Obama's buying a private Island for him an Michelle after he's screwed the Unites States.So he doesn't have to observe the real damage he's done to us.

I'd ask you to explain how anyone can be an illegal alien and not an illegal immigrant but apparently you don't understand they are one and the same.

How he got here isn't relevant. He is here illegally, pure and simple.
