Vargas has been breaking laws left and right for years.

After years of effort, celebrity “immigration activist” and proud member of the “undocumented-American” community Jose Antonio Vargas finally managed to wake up the moribund U.S. immigration system and provoke it into taking action against him. A great deal of what is happening on our southern border is an abject farce, but some of the people who slept through the first few acts are waking up now. CNN reports:

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and undocumented immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas suspected he wouldn’t get out.

His fear came to fruition Tuesday morning when he was detained at a Texas airport while trying to pass through security en route to Los Angeles, said Ryan Eller, campaign director for Define American, a group Vargas founded in 2011.
