Los Angeles Times Skips the I-Word As California Grants Law License to Illegal Alien

I should skip the ridiculous tag and go right to redonkulous with this one.  Apparently the law means nothing but what they tell you it means.  From :

The Los Angeles Times decided, as one of California’s leading arbiters of political correctness, that they would skip the ironic headline of “Illegal alien wins license to practice law.” That kind of direct language is a bit too honest. The use of the I-word will be banned in all civilized and "inclusive"  forums in the future, and this may mark the beginning.

“California court grants law license to Mexican immigrant” was the headline, and took many paragraphs before listing just how many times this new lawyer evades all those annoying technicalities they teach you about in law school.

“A Mexican immigrant without a green card on Thursday won the right to practice law in California, an unprecedented ruling that will permit others in similar circumstances to become lawyers,” Dolan began.

Not only did the word “illegal” never appear, but neither did anyone who thought this decision was questionable if not ridiculous on its face. The raves were arranged to be unanimous:

"The fact that an undocumented immigrant's presence in this country violates federal statutes is not itself a sufficient or persuasive basis for denying undocumented immigrants, as a class, admission to the State Bar," Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye wrote for the court. [She was born in Sacramento to immigrant parents.]

...James Wagstaffe, who represented the State Bar in its efforts to admit Garcia, called Thursday's decision "a landmark case in favor of inclusiveness."

"It is not just about undocumented immigrants," Wagstaffe said. "It is also saying we are going to decide the qualifications of a lawyer based on individual character, not based on class."

University of San Francisco law professor Bill Hing estimated that at least two dozen immigrants without green cards graduate from California law schools each year. He said many immigrants were sworn in to practice before the State Bar began asking about immigration status in 2008.

"California now is the only state that has said specifically that undocumented immigrants can practice law," Hing said. "The hero in this whole saga is the state Legislature and Jerry Brown for acting so swiftly."

Apparently, insisting on border enforcement and immigration laws is "class warfare" now.
