REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – He’s arguably the most famous undocumented immigrant in America, and he’s getting involved in the immigration crisis at the US-Mexico border.

Award-winning Filipino journalist and filmmaker Jose Antonio Vargas announced on Twitter that he’s heading to McAllen, Texas on Thursday to speak with anti-government militia groups about his immigration reform campaign called “Define American”.

Recent reports out of Texas say that several anti-government groups are recruiting armed volunteers to travel to the US-Mexico border to stop the flood of undocumented immigrants into the country.

Vargas’ “Define American” is a media and culture campaign that aims to shift conversation around immigration, identity and citizenship in America.

    This country knows no borders and so am I. What he would do is very significant but also dangerously overreach and a bit of media circus. If there are people in the house of congress who could easily breach their oath of office because of twisted beliefs, then how are you gonna convince these far right lunatics that things are okay. How about focusing on TPS be included on Obama’s relief measures.

    the residents of murrieta, california, all are determined to call them as such – ILLEGAL ALIENS. the up in arms people of murrieta, and the rest of americans are soaringly angered to bleeding hearts, spinning the truth these people are nothing, but illegal aliens, misleading the easily propagandized public in selling, changing the wording to UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS, all in the name of sabotaging the existing immigration laws, proliferated by obummer and the demonicrap party, staging, pinpointing to the elephant party, the illegal alien border crossers crisis are all their faults for not going along with obozo and his bozos, with immigration reform – legalizing illegalities. the existing immigration laws were never followed by the POTUS, except hoover, truman, and eisenhower, who were faced with the same worst economy, the depression era. the simplest thing these POTUS did to boost the US economy, were to apprehend/deport all illegal aliens, in order to employ millions out of work americans in the bread line, by enlarged were veterans. the cause and effect – america became the economic power of the world, the dollar as the world dominant monetary exchange. those POTUS who got away for not following the immigration laws of deporting illegal aliens were not noticed by the public, because of the good economy during their terms. obummer with his commie ideologues, weakened the american economy to stand out as globally worst, with the weakening dollar, will soon be filing up 20trillion or more debt by 2016. obozo still embracing these unrestrained illegal aliens with his irresponsible, squandering the hard earned dollars of taxpayers, no way are solutions to already overloaded with illegal aliens USA. to overrun america by illegal aliens are obummer’s designed ambitions, and the demonicrap party’s aspirations to stay politically in power.
