The California Supreme Court ruled Thursday that an illegal immigrant can join the bar and begin to practice law in that state, granting a major symbolic victory to immigrant rights advocates who say it's a step on the path to equal treatment in employment law.
The election has strengthened President Obama's hand on immigration, and Dream Act organizers said it likely means a flood of hundreds of thousands of new applications for his nondeportation policy — but it's not clear that anything has changed in the decade-long stalemate in Congress on the issue.
"It's a political limitation rather than legal limitation," Mr. Vargas said.
"People are going to continue to push and pressure the president. He's the one that can provide the relief right now," said Cesar Vargas, co-director of the Dream Action Coalition.
