Why didn't he apply for legal status. He should understand law better than most....And Florida is turd world status anyway. The State better watch this guy. If he represents criminal aliens watch out Florida... he'll become a rich man at American tax payers expense. We the people pay for the representation for these thug's.....Good for Florida. Hope he mess's up big time and loses his licence which if he comes with the morals of the rest of the family, he will.!

One of the greatest travesties in American history!!! A person here unlawfully, getting permission to practice the law. I would have had more respect for him if he had taken his law degree and worked for some way to become legal. No, just another entitled illegal alien. His logic, no, I won't follow the rules, it takes too long, gimme cause even though I am an adult, I came as a child so it's your responsibility to gimme what I want,and to treat me as though nothing is wrong. Parents are prohibited from taking responsibility for their actions...or even being held accountable to their kids for putting them in these circumstances. I for one am strongly for deporting WHOLE families, including the "citizens" who were born here...they should be deported until they are 18, and then we will sort it out. Just like the parents dumped their kids on us, let's dump them ALL back to wherever they came from!!! Sick and tired of it!!!!!!

Should give you warm fuzzies to know that you will be his only client! What American citizen would go to an illegal alien for law advice?!!! I bet the jury will be prejudice against him. I bet he will starve because the illegal aliens who do go to him will be the ones who can't afford a REAL lawyer. lol viva is right...LOL

He does understand the law well enough to know there is no way for somebody who entered without inspection to legalize their status.

It is interesting to see that there are people who think legalization is an option. This is actually the entire point of immigration reform. I am glad to see that you are a supporter.

Wholly crap Memo, are you serious. Every single day in every Court room in this Country, there's an immigration attorney, working there magic to give legal status to illegals, mostly green cards. Nevada has dozens of immigration attorneys with huge roadside signs advertising the advancement of immigration stays in the State. Where have you been. Why do you think immigration attorneys exist? They are mostly funded by your tax money, and you also pay for there detention until they come to court.....eeeek. Memo???? DAH Thousand of dreamers have already gained legal Status. This guy probably broke some more laws than he's saying. He could have gotten a green card if he's been here 20 years or so.

Actually, there is.

It involves either a petition for employment, or a petition from an immediate family member, or a petition for assylum or cancellation of removal. Being that he came into the U.S. with his parents, when he was 9, and assuming his parents are/were illegal aliens at the time, it's more likely than not that neither would apply.

So then, it's left to him falling under any of four general guidelines, two of which involve entering with a valid visa, so those two are out. The other two would be if he's 245(i) eligible, or he gets a waiver because of special circumstances.

All things considered, IMO, he was 245(i) eligible and that's how he got legal status, albeit temporary.

No 9 year old child is responsible, under the law, for his/her own actions. So it would be an act of extreme prejudice to hold this guy from practicing law, simply because of the actions of his parents.

BTW, my location may show Philadelphia, but that's because my law firm is Headquartered in Philly. I'm in West Palm. And, Florida is, all things considered, an awesome place to live.

South Florida may be mostly "swamp" land (actually the Everglades are not a swamp, but a river - a very slow moving river-), but if you ever have picked up a bottle of Zephyrhills water, guess where it comes from; Zephyrhills, Florida.

WDW is the #1 tourist attraction in the Nation.

Key Largo is the #1 scuba diving destination in the U.S.

Palm Beach is the most affluent city in the Eastern United States; more so than NYC. Worth Ave. is known as the "East Coast Rodeo Drive."

There's good and bad everywhere, but given that greater than 80% of the citizens of the State of Florida are NOT native Floridians, maybe that should be something to consider when referring, in a general sense, to one of the richest states in the Country.

If I live in Mexico and have American citizenship, does that make me an illegal alien?
Do you mean to tell me you can hold Mexican citizenship but hold residency and an education and a job in America and not hold citizenship?
But I can't arrive in China and study thermo nuclear atomic science without at first registering?
You should make them have to register. Check in, uphold residency to have access for our goods and training.

Not to worry. He won't get rich here unless he is corrupt. First of all, REAL lawyers won't want to deal with him because he is sub standard. yeah, he fought for his rights, but risky lawyer to defend you in a jury of yoru citizen peers!!! Any American citizen would be stupid to get a lawyer to defend them who already had strikes against him, being an illegal alien and possibly having committed identity theft and fraud, like most do! They lie if they say they don't. You come here illegally, you do everything illegally to stay! I predict he's toast. Yeah, he won, but who in his right mind would want to have him represent him? His time would be better spent in his home country helping people with LEGAL entry. Oh, stupid, racist me!

Our government has ABSOLUTELY no intent to legalize illegal aliens!!! It is more profitable to have them chasing a carrot on a stick, to the advantage of corporations who pay them sub-minimal wages, and don't have to comply with most safety standards. Illegals have been to stupido to see this! A good case in point is DACA! Their "savior" only gave them two years!!!! You'd think at least five! Noooo, it was merely to get through the election. Illegal aliens are more profitable illegal than legal.
