CA’s top court rules illegal alien can join bar

I'm finally settling in in Seoul.  It's been pretty rough not having internet.  But I finally have some of the fastest internet in the world at my fingertips.

Anyway, what CA is doing is making me question what makes a citizen of the USA any different from a non-citizen.  I'm waiting on CA to decide anyone can vote regardless of their status.

From the Washington Times:
Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye said state legislation signed last year by Gov. Jerry Brown removed the final barriers and Mr. Garcia can be licensed, even though he is not in the country legally.

“We conclude that 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,” the chief justice wrote.
So, they can join the bar, and what else?  Own a business? They can drive a car. They don't get arrested now, in CA.
