    A viral photo that appeared to depict a child detained at the border over his immigration status was actually taken at a protest, according to fact-checkers. The image was shared by social media users like journalist and filmmaker Jose Antonio Vargas, who said in the caption: "This is what happens when a government believes people are 'illegal.' Kids in cages." However, fact-checking websites Snopes and PolitiFact found other pictures of the boy wearing the same clothes at a demonstration on June 10 organized by the Brown Berets de Cemanahuac's Texas chapter in Dallas. Leroy Pena, who took the image, told...

    Tucker Carlson shredding illegal immigration activist Jose Antonio Vargas. At this point, I’m not really sure why progressives continue to appear on Tucker Carlson Tonight. I mean, they must know what’s coming, right? They’re going to make some ridiculous, barely coherent, argument. Tucker will listen politely. Then, they’ll be utterly obliterated, and made to look like fools.

    Bill Reeves and Debbie Berger are behind Unbound Philanthropy, a group that has given tens of millions of dollars to pro-open borders activist groups both in the United States and the United Kingdom. Reeves and Berger are also both major Democrat donors, and they are their group also has connections to the exclusive Punahou School, the elite private school that President Barack Obama attended.

    A town hall for liberal activists featuring two Democratic presidential candidates was interrupted by dozens of demonstrators on Saturday who shouted down the contenders and demanded they address criminal justice issues and police brutality. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders planned to attend a public sit-down interview with journalist Jose Antonio Vargas in front of a left-leaning crowd here at the annual Netroots Nation conference, a gathering of progressives, when the tone of the program shifted just a few minutes into the event. O'Malley was answering questions from Vargas on stage when dozens of boisterous conference...

    CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until...

    They've blown it again, big time. They just can't help themselves. During the Bush years, the open-borders movement won over bleeding hearts in the White House but alienated the American public with radical displays of La Raza ("The Race") militancy, desecrated American flags and Che Guevara shirt-wearing, fist-thrusting marches across the country. Left-wing public relations consultants taught the amnesty mob to tone it down, turn the flags right-side up and stop threatening Reconquista. But the phony red-white-and-blue dye job didn't last. The movement's true extremist, entitled roots can't be concealed for long. On Monday, leading illegal-alien journalist turned activist Jose...

    Jose Antonio Vargas, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and activist who favors of immigration reform, is also a proud undocumented immigrant. Born in the Philippines but raised in the United States from the age of 12, Vargas worked and lived in America for years where he advocated through his reporting the reformation of American immigration laws. Last week, Vargas penned a report from Texas for Politico Magazine chronicling the plight of a person in his position – a man without documentation on the frontlines of an immigration crisis. He recently produced a pro-reform documentary entitled Documented, which is set to...

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." ...

    Jose Antonio Vargas was once well-known for being a star up-and-coming journalist at The Washington Post, a Pulitzer Prize winner before he hit the age of 30. Today, he’s best known for being America’s most prominent undocumented immigrant, after he wrote a “coming out” piece for The New York Times Magazine in 2011. Despite his high profile — or, more likely, because of it — he has avoided detention or deportation. He lives in the United States, runs a nonprofit that employs a dozen Americans and travels extensively using his valid Philippine passport. SNIP Two weeks ago, he was in...

    It’s somewhat ironic that CNN is, today, touting the premier of their new show The Hunt (with John Walsh) tonight at the same time as they are still featuring the documentary Documented by Jose Antonio Vargas. The irony – since they seem oblivious to it – is that the former is a show dedicated to catching criminals who are on the loose, while the latter is produced by one of the people we should ostensibly be looking for. Vargas is in the country illegally, and yet somehow appears on multiple television programs, produces films and seems to earn a...

    I write this from the city of McAllen, which sits in the Rio Grande Valley near the border, just across from the Mexican city of Reynosa. In the last 24 hours I realize that, for an undocumented immigrant like me, getting out of a border town in Texas—by plane or by land—won’t be easy. It might, in fact, be impossible. I flew into the valley Thursday morning to visit a shelter for unaccompanied Central American refugees and participate in a vigil in their honor. Outraged at the media coverage of this humanitarian crisis (these children are not “illegal,” as news...

    Rarely does a story hit with the impact of former Washington Post reporter Jose Antonio Vargas’s revelation in the New York Times magazine Wednesday that he is an undocumented immigrant. Within minutes of it appearing on the Times’ website, it burned across Twitter like wildfire, pushed along each time with passionate endorsements from influential journalists. Meanwhile, ABC News blasted excerpts from its exclusive interview with Vargas, which will air on “World News” and “Nightline” tomorrow and “Good Morning America” on Friday.... The Post, the paper that hired Vargas as an intern, put him on a team that won a Pulitzer...

    Former senator says Vargas should stay in U.S. Former U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.) said Sunday that Jose Antonio Vargas, the former Washington Post reporter who came out last month as an illegal immigrant, should be allowed to "become an American." "It's a difficult problem, and what we need to do is find a way in which Jose can continue to contribute to this country," Martinez said on ABC's "This Week." "He wants to be an American," Martinez continued. "This is a great thing. This is the Fourth of July. We need to talk about the fact that this is a...
