“I convinced myself that all would be OK if I lived up to the qualities of a 'citizen': hard work, self-reliance, love of my country.” -- Jose Antonio Vargas
Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post journalist Vargas just revealed to The New York Times that he immigrated to the United States illegally at the age of 12. Raised and educated in the Bay Area, Vargas won the Pulitzer Prize in 2008 for his breaking news piece on the Virginia Tech shootings.
