Jose Antonio Vargas and immigration reform

Vargas Jose Antonio Vargas, a Pulitzer Prize winner and openly gay former reporter for The Washington Post, wrote a piece on Wednesday in The New York Times titled, "My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant". It makes for compelling reading.

David Leopold comments in The Hill. Corey Dade writes at NPR. Jack Shafer writes at Slate. Harold Pollack writes at TNR. Ezra Klein writes at The Washington Post.

Vargas is pushing for passage of the DREAM Act to help young people like himself who were brought to this country illegally by their parents. Good luck to him.
