I am sure George Soros and the Tides Foundation thought Jose Antonio Vargas was the perfect illegal for their push for no borders. George Soros and his many groups, have pushed for no border for the United States for many years and no doubt this Pulitzer Prize winning “journalist” (that means the lefties love him) seemed the perfect example of pushing for the DREAM Act. The only problem is, a majority of Americans do not find that committing fraud to be a behavior worth rewarding. You see Jose found out when he was 16 and he and his grandfather then set about to change legal documents into illegal documents, quite like Jose Using False Documents Is A Felony
Former Washington Post reporter Jose Antonio Vargas has written a long piece for The New York Times Magazine declaring that heâ€™s an illegal alien and that heâ€™s created a new advocacy group called Define American (â€œa project of the Tides Centerâ€) to push for the DREAM Act that would provide permanent residency to illegal aliens brought to America as children.
Vargas, 30, lied to a string of media outlets about his immigration status with a fake driverâ€™s license from Oregon. He came over from the Philippines at age 12. (Vargas told the truth to Post editor Peter Perl, a mentor, but he wouldnâ€™t comment now.) In the Post story on this by Paul Farhi, Post spokeswoman Kris Coratti offered a no-comment on Vargasâ€™s employment at the paper: â€œWe will not comment on individual personnel matters out of respect for the privacy of our employees.â€
What that no-comment seems to say: â€œWe donâ€™t want to condemn lying to us about your immigration status since we probably employ a pile of â€˜undocumentedâ€™ people and are too liberal a media outlet to seem scandalized.â€
It might also be suggested that Vargas was hired smack-dab out of college in 2004 in part because he was Filipino and gay â€“ an affirmative action two-fer. The illegal status might have only added to the allure. In 2006, the Post egregiously celebrated large Washington rallies for amnesty for illegal aliens.
If the DREAM Act were to pass without the parents of these illegals not being sent back to their Country of origin that indeed would be allowing illegality to become part of America. I don’t think the majority of We The People hold these children accountable but certainly their parents cannot stay, there must be punishment for illegally entering the United States of America. This Country is founded on the rule of law and just because a liberal cause dujour has cropped up does not negate that fact.
