Jose Antonio Vargas has lived a privileged life, he illegally arrived in the United States as a child and has bragged about being a lawbreaker ever since.  Today he may have tempted fate one time too many he as was arrested at a Border Patrol checkpoint in McAllen, Texas, as he tried to board a plane to Houston.

Mr. Vargas was visiting McAllen to join a vigil for thousands of children who have surged to cross the border from Central America in recent months, The New York Times said.

Mr. Vargas said on Twitter that he did not realize until until he arrived that he would have to cross through a Customs and Border Protection checkpoint to leave the Rio Grande Valley.

“About to go thru security at McAllen Airport. I don’t know what’s going to happen,” he tweeted Tuesday morning.

Mr. Vargas has said that he travels on a valid Filipino passport, but it does not have a current United States visa. He has traveled extensively promoting a documentary film he produced, “Documented,” about life as an undocumented immigrant.

He told the news agency in an interview that he had not been stopped at airport checkpoints because Transportation Security Administration officals checked his passport but not his immigration status.

“The only IDs I have for security: Philippine passport and my pocketbook U.S. Constitution,” he tweeted later on Tuesday.

The enforcement of the law immediately brought support from the left


Hey guess what Michael, its the 21st century you can follow his writing on the internet.

Vargas is not only an illegal alien (oh sorry they don’t like that word) he is not only a criminally trespassing alien. But since he came out as a lawbreaker in 2011 he has been flaunting it.  Some say he is committing an act of civil disobedience, fine as with many acts of civil disobedience it’s time for him to face the music.

It’s time for ICE to deport Jose Antonio Vargas. His presence in the United States is against the law, and he brags about.  How many care thieves walk around saying I stole a car but don’t arrest me because I am an undocumented car owner.

Jose has brought this upon himself, let’s send him home.
