REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Award-winning journalist and undocumented Filipino immigrant Jose Vargas took his pro-immigration reform campaign Define American to the border town of McAllen, Texas to reach out to local groups about the surge of undocumented immigrants entering the country.

Balitang America spoke via Skype with Define American’s communications and engagement director, Fil-Am Maria Cruz Lee. She talked about her group’s goals while in McAllen and why the Filipino community in the United States should care about the immigration crisis at the US-Mexico border.

    Maria Cruz Lee, your out of this world by saying the Filipino community in the united states should care about the immigration crisis at the US-Mexico border? Look how can you say that, if you want to get people in a big mess with the American government? See Yahoo.Com News and see how the Americans feel about illegal people in America, they don’t like them at all? Hey Jose Vargas will just shut your big mouth and get out of America you don’t belong here in America, get out right now you sound stupid you don’t know what your saying about staying in America shame of you? I wish the FBI pick you up and kick you ass out of America. Jose Vargas is a outlaw from another country that don’t belong here in America?

    Filipinos who want to get involved on the border crisis should join the local militia, to protect America from waves upon waves of illegal alien invaders. America is under siege, wake-up,we have a Marxist President working side by side with LaRaza to destroy America.This is a leftist tactics, Hillary Clinton came to power on children funds,Obama uses the children as trojan horse to destroy American sovereignty. 60K children and 240k adult total of 300k are already in Texas. We have already 30Million illegals in this country.. Are you willing to pay more taxes in order to feed and house them.Immediate solution to stop more illegal alien invasion, is to close the border.But the Democrat want open border. This country is being overrun by a planned campaign LaRaza at the WH.
