Welcome to the movement Jose Antonio Vargas undocumented American
I’m so excited and pleased. I just read about journalist Jose Antonio Vargas “coming out” as an undocumented immigrant.
This is just great. I “came out” this past weekend and although our cases are a bit different, but I feel empowered by his courage. I know we can do this.
For a long time I’ve read Vargas articles at the Washington Post and other sites, it’s funny that I always thought he was “Latino” because of his Spanish surname. The things we learn when we get to know about people as people, more than as distant images or perceptions.
That is exactly what we undocumented immigrants need to do: let others know who we are!
The story of Vargas is special, he is risking a lot and he will be prosecuted and possibly deported. But he is doing the right thing. We all need to do this!
Here is a video of Jose Antonio Vargas telling his story:
