Cesar Vargas, Undocumented Immigrant, Applies To Practice Law In NY

As a potential beneficiary of the new federal policy allowing people brought illegally to the United States as children to apply for work authorization, Vargas has reason to hope. The Obama administration’s decision this year to defer deportation for people who, like him, were brought to the United States illegally as children made him more optimistic about his chances of becoming a lawyer

“We’re not asking for special benefits,” said Vargas. “I want them to look at my character and who I am, not my immigration status.”
