If you practice law and wish to take it up another level and become a judge (A judge is in a way voting, innocent or guilt), then perhaps you may want to obtain citizenship first...
Municipal court judge on unpaid leave pending U.S. citizenship
A municipal court judge has been placed on unpaid leave after city officials learned she is not a U.S. citizen.
A question about citizenship wasn't on the application for appointment, City Councilman Rudy Garza Jr. said Wednesday. The documents instead had a question about whether the applicant was eligible for legal employment in the state.
Young Min Burkett is a permanent resident and eligible for lawful employment, he added.
But U.S. citizenship is a requirement to be a municipal court judge, according to the city’s ordinance.
“The error was a city error and we don’t feel Judge Burkett was insincere or did anything in her application or interview that led to any dishonesty on her part,” Garza said.
In it, he said his wife has been a lawful permanent resident since 2007.
"The job posting specified only the ability to work in the U.S.," Nathan Burkett wrote. "She has never made a representation that she is a citizen."
Sounds like she was an international student that got married and adjusted status.
Probably her law studies never brought up that voting and with it citizenship as a requirement of being a judge, and the question never came up so she slipped through the crack when the city was hiring a judge.
