"Tino" is not a citizen, but he does have permanent resident status. Gone are the days when an immigrant had to become a citizen, as my grandfather did, to get a law degree and take the Bar Exam. My grandfather became an Appellate Court judge, but that would never have been possible then without citizenship.

Tino IS a citizen, since 1993. Where are you getting your "information"?
