Calif. Bill Would Let Non-Citizens Serve on Juries

Via Bill


The California Assembly passed a bill on Thursday that would make the state the first in the nation to allow non-citizens who are in the country legally to serve on jury duty.

Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski, D-Fremont, said his bill, AB1401, would help California widen the pool of prospective jurors and help integrate immigrants into the community.

It does not change other criteria for being eligible to serve on a jury, such as being at least 18, living in the county that is making the summons, and being proficient in English.

  1. Lets see first get on the list to be a juror, you need to be a registered voter, since the names are randomly selected from voter registration lists.

    Another back door way to make illegal aliens, voters, thus making them legal.
