    They‘re not exactly criminals, Jz - by some insufficiently explained legerdemocrat their status, like sneaking across the border without authorization, is only civil violation, though I believe it should be a criminal one. What the story omitted is how many lawyers are admitted to practice before the various bars, state and federal, of the USA, and how many of those actually belong to the NBA. That this nonsense was urged by its law student division only highlights how out of touch with and unrepresentative of the overall American bar the ABA is.

    How can the ABA justify admitting illegal aliens into the bar. Just by their status they are criminals!
