    CA to allow non-citizens on juries

    Opinion: California mulls letting noncitizens serve on juries - CNN.com

    "Just last week, the state Assembly approved AB 1401, a bill that would allow noncitizens to serve on juries if they are in the country legally. The vote, 45 to 26, wasn't even close."

    I guess I don't see an issue with it. I'm not a citizen, yet I'm a cop (and California also allows the same, with some restrictions). As long as they keep to the legal permanent residents, and not expand further to illegals and/or visa holders.

    Pretty soon California will only be non citizens.

    But you can't ask if they are in the country legally. That's profiling. Pfft.
