I will play the role of devil’s advocate in the much publicized confession of a plethora of fake documents revealed by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, an undocumented alien on the pretext of playing the role of poster boy by pushing for the enactment of the much debated DREAM Act which was rejected several times in the U.S. Senate.

No lawyer in the U.S. would counsel Vargas to spill the beans on all the fake documents which he accumulated in his 18-year odyssey in the United States such as using a fake passport to enter the U.S. with a fake name, a fake green card, a fake Social Security card, and perjured federal 1-9 employment eligibility forms and an Oregon driver’s license secured under false address.

Filipino-American columnist Michelle Malkin in her column “Undocumented - Not” published in the June 25, 2011 issue of the New York Post wrote a scathing article on Vargas:

“At least Vargas tells the truth when he says he’s not alone. Undocumented workers and undocumented immigrants have plenty of fake documents.

“The persistent use of these open-borders euphemisms to describe Vargas and countless millions like him is a perfect illumination of the agenda-driven, dominant progressive media.

“Bleeding-heart editors hoaxed by Vargas, a prominent colleague — exposed to liability. Yet they still champion his serial subversion of the law. San Francisco Chronicle editor Phil Bronstein bragged that he was duped by Vargas, but endorses his subterfuge because Vargas’ lobbying campaign for the illegal-alien student bailout known as the DREAM Act just might lubricate the politically tarred-up wheels of government and help craft sane immigration policy.

“Who’s insane? The Vargas deceit is not an object lesson about America’s failure to show compassion. Its’s another stark reminder of America’s dangerous failure to learn from 9/11.”

Malkin concluded her column:

“Vargas believes his sob story is an argument for giving up on immigration enforcement and passing a mass amnesty. It’s a sob story, all right. Homeland Security officials across the country should be weeping at the open mockery Vargas and his enablers have made of the law.”

Malkin also mentioned that President Barack Obama’s head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement just signed a memo pushing the DREAM Act by administrative fiat.

Author’s comment

This memo may violate the U.S. Constitution since the President cannot legislate.

Only the Congress of the United States are empowered by the fundamental law to initiate a bill and then signed by the President.


The DREAM Act, also known as Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors, is an American legislative proposal first introduced in the U.S. Senate on Aug. 1, 2001.

Under this Senate bill, the beneficiaries must:

1. Would provide conditional permanent residency to certain illegal and deportable alien students who graduate from U.S. high schools.

2. Who are of good moral character.

3. Arrived in the U.S. legally or illegally as minors.

4. Have been in the U.S. continuously for at least five years prior to the bills enactment.

5. If they were to complete two years in the military or two years at a four-year institution of higher learning, the student would obtain temporary residency for a six-year period.

6. Within the six-year period, a qualified student must have acquired a degree from an institution of higher education in the U.S. or have completed at least two years, in good standing, in a program for a bachelor’s degree or higher education in the U.S. or have served in the armed forces for at least two years and, if discharged, have received an honorable discharge.

Over the years, several versions of the DREAM Act were introduced in the House of Representatives and passed, but in the U.S. Senate the bill failed on a 52-44 vote, eight votes short of overcoming a filibuster by senators opposed to the bill.

Re-Introduction of the DREAM Act in 2011

On May 11, 2011, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reintroduced the DREAM Act in the Senate.

A couple of Republicans who supported the bill in the past, Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, Jon Kyl of Arizona, John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, withheld their votes, objecting that such bill should not be granted without some sort of balance increasing immigration enforcement.

The version of the DREAM Act of 2010 includes the following changes:

1. Lowers the age cap for eligibility for the DREAM Act to 29 on the date of enactment.

2. Limits eligibility for conditional nonimmigrant status by excluding anyone who:

A. Has committed one felony or three misdemeanors.

B. Is likely to become a public charge.

C. Has engaged in voter fraud or unlawful voting.

D. Has committed marriage fraud.

E. Has abused a student via. (From Wikipedia)

Author’s comment

If in the near future the DREAM Act is approved in the U.S. Congress, Vargas’ efforts for pushing for the DREAM Act or mass amnesty would be in vain.

He will be disqualified: over-age in the DREAM Act and making false claims for citizenship and document fraud are both felonies, crimes punishable in excess of one year in jail.
