Mr. Garcia, the subject of extensive media coverage and social and political controversy, became the first undocumented immigrant to be admitted to the California state bar and was sworn-in as an attorney on Feb. 3, 2014. Although born in Mexico, Mr. Garcia was brought by his parents to the United States young child. In the 19 years since Mr. Garcia has been waiting for federal officials to navigate the visa backlog and approve his petition, Mr. Garcia excelled in primary school, college, and graduated from law school, often working multiple jobs–including picking almonds in orchards in Northern California–to support his studies. Join us to hear Mr. Garcia's story in person. Lunch provided.
