But it leaves me cold when "dreamers" declare in "Documented," "We are undocumented, unafraid, unapologetic."

Unafraid? I don't think so. Vargas has written movingly about the fear that haunted his heady climb in journalism. When his work for The Washington Post led to a shared Pulitzer Prize, he was afraid he'd be exposed.

And unapologetic? Such talk, Vargas told me, used to bother him, too. If I were Vargas, I'd go back to those roots. Unapologetic is the wrong attitude for young people who want to convince others that they respect the rule of law.
