Jose Vargas: "In many ways, I represent … just how broken the immigration system is"

(WASHINGTON) — Despite being known as a nation of immigrants, American politicians are locked in a longstanding stalemate over how to best solve the country’s immigration problems – a debate also taken up by a panel on ABC News’ This Week with Christiane Amanpour which included among others, a self-admitted illegal immigrant.

"In many ways, I represent … just how broken the immigration system is," former Washington Post reporter Jose Vargas said on This Week of his decision to publish an account of his illegal status. “In many ways the goal was to expose just how incredibly dysfunctional and irrational the whole system is and has been for quite some time.”
