This country, to maintain its place in the world needs well educated, well trained legal immigrants to bring their unique talents and skills to the nation's character. Typically, these legal immigrants bring value to the country, they contribute, they obey the laws, they make everyone's life a little better for it. What this country doesn't need are the runaways, the stowaways, the uneducated, the illiterate, the diseased, the law breakers who disrespect community norms, and the people, like Mr Vargas, who promote and defend those detriments to maintaining America's place in the world. Illegal aliens are law breaking criminals and should be treated as such.

Back in December, "undocumented Americans" were in the running to become TIME Magazine's "Person of the Year" and just two weeks ago, Democratic Rep. John Conyers referred to illegal immigrants as simply "out of status" Americans. Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill, illegal immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas asked Congress not to call him "illegal."

Jose Antonio Vargas, an illegal immigrant and former reporter, scolded a congressional panel on Wednesday, saying that he should not be called illegal, and saying it is an insult to his family who brought him here.
