Is there any justifiable reason that Sergio C. Garcia, an undocumented immigrant whom the California Bar says deserves a license to practice law, has been kept waiting for his green card for 18 years?
His father, a naturalized citizen, sponsored him for this essential document when he was 17, and he is now 35 and hasn't gotten it yet? The green card would allow him to work legally and would solve his immediate employment problem.
People apply for and presumably obtain green cards all the time, so why can't Garcia get his? Being kept in limbo for 18 years is a travesty.
