Smith: California Court Undermines Rule of Law

Jan 2, 2014
Press Release

Congressman Lamar Smith (TX-21) today faulted the California Supreme Court ruling that granted an illegal immigrant admission to the California Bar.

Representative Smith: “The ruling unravels the fabric of American society by ignoring the distinction between citizens and non-citizens. This is contrary to common sense and the rational application of the rule of law.

“The court’s decision follows earlier action by the state legislature and approval by the governor.  This makes all three branches of the government in California complicit in the furtherance of unjustified amnesty for illegal immigrants.”
