Mexican immigrant with NYC law degree is in limbo

"A Mexican immigrant who passed the New York bar exam last year cannot
work as a lawyer because he was brought to the U.S. illegally as a
child, and his situation could soon become part of a national debate. Cesar Vargas was 5 years old when he arrived from Puebla, Mexico,
with his mother in 1990. He's now a 28-year-old City University of New
York law graduate and said he is waiting to see how courts in California
and Florida decide two similar cases involving Mexican immigrants." – Associated Press, Mar. 6, 2012.
