Why has Jose Antonio Vargas not been deported? He has committed a number of felonies, he is still a illegal alien in the country illegally.

There is no such thing as an American citizen, so good luck to Vargas in trying to define one. People living in this country legally are United States citizens. You'd think he would have that one figured out by now. But I guess it's all a play on words to him.
I agree, he should be deported. Or does he think he is somehow better than those with lesser means and money and notoriety who have already been deported?

The problem is that when you have a law that is readily broken, and then you relax that law to accommodate the law breakers, you are encouraging even more to break the relaxed law, since it will likely be relaxed further to accommodate them.
Mr. Vargas and many like him are in an unenviable situation, but not because of immigration laws. It is because their parents broke the immigration laws. Granting some sort of amnesty to people who's parents brought them to the US illegally as children will only encourage many more parents to do this in the future.
