Pulitzer-Winner Jose Antonio Vargas Comes Out As Illegal Immigrant

Read the interview (and watch the video) at ABC News

For the past decade, Jose Antonio Vargas has pursued success in journalism. In addition to winning a Pulitzer Prize with the Washington Post for his coverage of the 2007 Virginia Tech shootings, he has also covering a variety of topics including presidential politics, and even scored an exclusive interview with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Throughout all of his early success, however, Vargas harbored a huge secret: he was living and working in the United States illegally.

"I wasn’t supposed to be there. I wasn’t supposed to be walking with Mark Zuckerberg. I wasn’t supposed to be interviewing Romney’s sons. Why was I doing it? Because I wanted to survive. I wanted to live. I wanted to earn what it means to be an American," Vargas told ABC News…

What would it take to make you sit on the other side of the interview table? Is Vargas’ career over in the U.S.? Does he have any chance to become a U.S. citizen, now? — Lora.
