Illegal Immigrant Seeks Admission to New York Bar
A Staten Islander who came to the U.S. from Mexico illegally as a 5-year-old is asking New York State to let him practice law.
Cesar Vargas, 29, graduated from CUNY School of Law with a 3.7 grade-point average and passed the grueling New York bar exam on his first try," the New York Daily News says.
"If accepted, Vargas would be the state's -- and maybe the country's -- first lawyer without legal immigration status. But he may have to argue his case in court first."
