    Well he can go do what he does where he LEGALLY belongs. Until then he should realise hes not a victim but a mooch. I came here from my country LEGALLY. What a sad greedy glutton mooch. Legal or bounce as simple as that. hes not special in anyway nor is he a victim of ANYTHING.

      Please reread what you wrote because you clearly dont understand what makes a country. We have laws and boarders so follow it or be deported or locked up.

      Well, he is doing what he's supposed to be "doing" legally. And he is serving the home that has taught him how to actively speak up for what you believe in. Jose Antonio Vargas needs empathy from everyone, he should not be seen as only an "illegal" but as a Human Being. He breathes, he works, he laughs, he cries, just as everyone does. It is too limited to look at him (or anyone) through the microscopic lens because then you miss the larger point: he is human. Don't let politics and legalization limit our way of thought. Instead, follow or at least try to understand what he is doing because that wisdom is what OUR founding fathers set as an ideology.

    On the one hand, I feel really bad for Jose because he didn't choose to be in the situation. The nomenclature of calling people illegal is wrong and gross. He's right about many things about the issues. A cynic would say he's probably made hundreds of thousands of dollars off his story but I don't care, the Kardashians sell themselves and get paid so who cares.

    The insanity of an illegal alien openly disparaging the U.S while profiting from his time illegally in the U.S. Arrest and deport this illegal. Additionally, these are illegal aliens - not undocumented immigrants. Undocumented immigrant is an oxymoron. Immigrant means legal and these illegal aliens are not legal.

      +Haya Glamazon - The legal term, as per Federal law is illegal alien - not undocumented immigrant which is an oxymoron as immigrant equates to legal. Illegal alien is referenced numerous times but a clear definition can be found within "United States Code, Title 8, §1365(b)". Leftists are always trying to change the meaning of words and focus on emotions - rather than facts and always seem to forget that facts do not care about your feelings.

      Undocumented immigrants is the suggested nomenclature by the Associated Press' Style Guide that essentially is the gold standard for reporting. It's the correct term to show humanity and empathy.
