The California Supreme Court granted a law license yesterday to a man who has lived in the United States illegally for two decades, WRCB reports. The unanimous decision will allow Sergio Garcia, who attended law school and passed the state bar exam while working in a grocery store and on area farms, to begin practicing law immediately. According to the Associated Press, advocates hope the ruling will open the door to millions of immigrants seeking to enter other professions such as medicine, accounting and teaching.
