Why is this an issue?!!!

He and his family have no respect for the law,and I don't care how much validictorian lipstick you want to put on this pig, it is still and illegal alien feeling that he is above the law, and that exceptions should be made because he got good grades!!!!

State bar is no better in taking the fees from this guy only to deny him what he earned.

It seems very strange," Justice R. Fred Lewis said in chastising the attorney for the board on why it allowed Godinez-Samperio to take the bar exam in the first place if it was not prepared to admit him when he passed.

Indeed, it should NEVER have gotten this far...he never should have been allowed to take the exam.

Because illegal aliens are not too smart. Florida would be the laughing stock of the country. I expect the same from California. If this guy was on any case i lose in court i would appeal on grounds that he is a illegal alien with no right to work or be in the US.

He represents the law but doesn't obey it??? Leave it to our corrupt legal system to let him keep his degree, home, money and food stamps.

Well Rico maybe the State bar wanted to recoup in any way possible all the money he and his numerous family members cost the US welfare and education system.

If an illegal passes the bar, he's disbarred and deproted. The laws not complicated, liberal just like to pretend this is a news story.

The exception that proves the rule. Give illegals a bus ride, not a governmetn appointed lawer. Cofiscate their property and make them pay back taxpery provided entitlments and out of state tuition.

Downt with wasteful government spending and borderjumpers. We've gor troops in Jordan because refugees are fleeing Syria. Get real.
