Earlier last week, the bar's rules committee voted to endorse the substance of the petition, which states that an individual should not be disqualified from practicing law in Florida solely because he or she is not a U.S. citizen.
Godinez-Samperio was brought to this country as a child by his parents and reportedly has never concealed his immigration status."
