Illegal immigrants reveal secret

Jose Antonio Vargas, a journalist turned advocate, discusses why he came out as an illegal immigrant.  He spoke to Time magazine about what it has been like in the year since revealing his immigration status.

CNN contributor Ruben Navarrette Jr. wrote that President Obama's immigration policy is a "shell game",  and CNN's Fareed Zakaria recently took a look at how immigration systems work- and don't work–around the world.

What do you think: What role do immigrants play in defining American identity?

    We need to deport all illegal aliens, secure the border, and fine anyone who hires an illegal alien. That is the law. Its time for the Federal Government to start enforcing the law.

    Now, the illegals and law breakers are heroes, so they can appear on the cover of the magazines? Great! Sky is the limit for media to create sensation in order to sell their publications !

    Immigrants are an integral part of the United States. We need the best and brightest no matter where they were born. The bottom 99% can stay out.
