DACA Illegal Immigrants Should NOT Be Able To Practice Law In The US


hey guys what’s going on this is Kai cut
a TV with another presentation we gotta talk about this okay guys
Utah daca recipients filed petition to allowed them to practice law in the
state undocumented immigrants can’t practice law in the state of Utah but a
new petition from two doctor recipients and law school graduates could change
that two women have filed a petition to the Utah Supreme Court asking for a rule
change that would allow undocumented immigrants to take the bar exam and
practice law in the state the two women are identified in the petition as Mary
Dole and Jane Doe both women are daca recipients which means they were brought
to the country as children but spent most of their lives in the United States
actually they were brought in the country illegally
by their irresponsible law-breaking like jumping illegal alien parents and why
are these women not using their real names in this petition
are they scared of deportation or something continuing daca recipients are
unable to take the bar and practice law in Utah because of a federal law passed
in 1996 called the personal responsibility and work opportunity
reconciliation Act the law prohibits professional licenses from being granted
to undocumented immigrants unless the state decides to opt out of the
restriction several states including California Florida New York Illinois
Pennsylvania Nebraska New Jersey and Wyoming have opted out of this
requirement and allow daca recipients to practice law the petitioners attorneys
argued that these individuals lack the intent to violate immigration laws have
become productive members of society and attended US schools colleges and law
schools well even if these illegal immigrant daca people lack the intent to
violate immigration laws the fact is they and their parents have violated
immigration laws and ignorance of the law doesn’t negate the penalty of
breaking the law doctor needs the end check this up Emma
can’t practice law in the state of Utah but a new petition for two daca
recipients and law school graduates could change that earlier this week
their attorneys made those arguments to the Utah Supreme Court ABC 4 is Rosina
Wynne spoke exclusively to one of the petitioners about their journey this
daca recipient identified as mary doe in the petition to the Utah Supreme Court
says she’s always known Utah as home my family came to the US when I believe I
was about six she says her journey to citizenship has
been long and complicated but during that time she developed a passion for
law hoping one day to use her career to help others in need I just think that
attorneys could do a lot of good in the community they can represent people who
would otherwise not have advocates however federal law prohibits daca
recipients from practicing law but several states including California has
overturned that rule doe says she was hoping Utah would be added to that list
by the time she graduated from the University of Utah’s law school but
since that wasn’t the case she and another petitioner listed as Jane Doe
decided to file the official petition themselves in the petition their
attorney wrote quote these individuals lack the intent to violate immigration
laws have become productive members of our society and attended US schools
colleges and law schools at a fundamental level I don’t think your
immigration status should impact your ability to practice law in the state if
the state court accepts their petition daca recipients like Doe would be able
to take the bar exam and practice law in Utah I would be ecstatic I think that
not just for myself even though obviously I have an interest in this but
I know people who want to go to law school here who also daca and it would
just mean the world changing the rules so that they’re able to practice law in
the state of Utah would increase the diversity of the lawyers in the state of
Utah which in and of itself is a good thing we need more lawyers from diverse
backgrounds reporting in Salt Lake City Rosina on ABC 4 news not many people are
against diversity and I’m glad that two young ladies have ambition and
determination but the fact remains you are still an illegal alien only
protected under Obama’s daca policy which was only meant to be a temporary
solution now we will see what happens under the Supreme Court’s pending
decision but I feel like there are US citizens and legal immigrants who
themselves or their parents did it the legal way and these illegals are just
taking a position that would no doubt be available to those that did it the right
way we have dreams too and lots of us never went to college or university
because we never had the money the opportunity or otherwise so to see any
legal alien kid be rewarded in this way is not passing the eye or the stomach
test something just doesn’t feel right let me know what you think in the

bless till next time peace
