USA's 'Most Privileged' Illegal Immigrant Stuck In Texas Border Town
Breitbart News ^ | 7/13/2014 | TONY LEE

...Vargas conceded that he does "not have a single U.S. government-issued ID" and, like most of the country's eleven million illegal immigrants, does not have a driver's license. But Vargas notes ever since he came out as an illegal immigrant in a New York Times magazine profile, "I’ve been the most privileged undocumented immigrant in the country." ...

I am living in the Philippines on a Tourist Visa. I know plenty of Filipinos that cannot get visas to go to the US.I must renew it consistently or be deported, AFTER SPENDING TIME IN JAIL.

I have to believe he entered illegally or just decided to overstay a visa. Since he states that his passport has no stamps, maybe he joined the Muzzies crossing the Rio Grande!

They just changed the rules, allowing me to renew every six months, and stay up to 36 months. Then, I MUST leave the country (even for 1 day) and return and start the process over again. They are happy to have our money being spent here, but we are not supposed to take from them.

Those of us that have chosen to be here are happy to abide by the rules.

... He has also co-founded a group that advocates for illegal immigrants and has been "traveling non-stop for three years, visiting more than 40 states," by using "a valid passport that was issued by my native country, the Philippines."

"But each flight is a gamble," he concedes. "My passport lacks a visa. If TSA agents discover this, they can contact CBP, which, in turn, can detain me."

Eleven million? Really? How many years have they been saying 11-12 million and the hordes keep coming in? It’s got to be at least 20 million and growing by now!

like most of the country's eleven million illegal immigrants, does not have a driver's license.

As a rule, you are allowed to drive using your home-country driver's license. So unless you never had a driver's license, you have a driver's license.

All the talk about illegals needing driver's licenses is just ear-wash.

No, that would be a guy named Barry Soetaro.

I would make a wager that the actual number of illegals would top 40 million in the USA. If you look around in any restaurant, car wash, own care biz, or other menial jobs, you will likely see a Hispanic face. I count that many have legal paperwork to be in the country.

I love it here in the Philippines. It is an island nation (7107 islands at big tide, hehe) filled with people who know that life is to be lived. The poor people are happy, though everybody wants a better life. I pass by a nipa hut home (straw roof and bamboo walls) and in front of the simple structure, they will plant flowers and keep the area clean, sweeping into the street every morning).

Public transportation is a staple here. You can travel many kilometers for a few pesos. I take a jeepney ride 8 km to the S&R (like Costco) and both ways it costs me around 12 Ph pesos. I have a Honda Scooter which uses more gas than that...

I thought he said he was not going down to the border, because it would only be seen as a photo op!

He entered the US with fake papers pretending to be his Uncle's son, and then lived in the US with fraudulent papers until 2012 when he wrote an article about it to boost his journalistic career.

I think it is funny at he feels stuck in S. Texas with BP at both the airport and highway checkpoints. If he wants to take his chances he could charter a plane, but that is pretty obvious and a lot of pilots won't risk their tickets.

“”Vargas said he has not had problems at airports because of his celebrity, “”

I would love to meet the TSA person who would know him from Adam! Maybe he hasn’t had any problems getting through security but what’s the real reason? When old ladies are frisked and babies in strollers are searched - you’re kidding me!

“”The lesson Vargas feels Americans should take away from his situation is that the border is secure, despite the crisis caused by tens of thousands of Central Americans now entering the United States. “#BORDERISSECURE — Wish I could scream that out loud””

What an imbecile!!

Yeah, when I lived in Japan, you had to have an ALIEN IDENTIFICATION CARD *GASP* and the police would PUT YOU IN JAIL if you didn’t have it.

Technically, I guess. But as long as he lets the TSA types feel him up, he doesn’t have to worry. They don’t have enough brains to look for a visa.

This is anecdotal, but I live in the Midwest. 30 years ago there were barely in Hispanics in this region. Not saying that is a good thing, just observation. 20 years ago, you would notice Hispanics occasionally at big stores or malls. 10 years ago, there were more Hispanics in the area. Now, everywhere you go, you encounter Hispanics (not speaking English) on a daily basis. The swimmer (Kennedy) got what he wanted, zero is just finishing the job.

Here, they issue an ACR-I card (Alien Cert of Registration- Identity) to every "foreigner". We are required to keep it and our Passport on our persons at all times outside our homes. At a traffic stop, we must show those along with Drivers License and vehicle registration and proof of insurance.

Failur to follow the rules can land you in jail and out the door, if you don't be verrrrrry careful.

But, on the flip side, (most of) the people show deference to us and give us a smile wherever we go. It is a warm place, not only in climate, but in the people!
