As far as I’m concerned, we are all immigrants, unless you’re an American Indian in the United States. That being said, if you are an American Indian and travel and live out of the United States than you are an immigrant to there. That’s just fact. Technically, EVERYONE is from Africa, so once again, we are all immigrants. What generation removed from that and where our familes settled is the only thing that separates us.
All that being said the key words here are ILLEGAL AND PRACTICING LAW IN THE UNITED STATES. I am from Los Angeles and this is going to be a very fine line. What may work in other countries, may not work here. Who ultimately mediates that? Plus, is there any added expense to people (tax paying?) In that already recovering state? If there is no burden, who monitors them? Does it create or take jobs?
If there is no burden and in fact is helpful to the economy, and like all new things, can be regulated and monitored, go for it. California could be making history, and taking the U.S. into the next growth and development phase.
