Wow. You would think that MV Voice would have closed this down by now. As we have often seen before, anyone who disagrees with illegal immigration, err, undocumentaion is obviously racist and must not be allowed to speak.

He's here illegally. He should be deported. End of story.

Speaking of story. MV Voice should be called "MV Voice your opinion, but we will regulate the boards, in case we don't like what you have to say."

For those who are impressed by Jose Antonio Vargas Pulitzer Prize, read the citation more carefully.

"For a distinguished example of local reporting of breaking news, presented in print or online or both, Ten thousand dollars ($10,000).

Awarded to The Washington Post Staff for its exceptional, multi-faceted coverage of the deadly shooting rampage at Virginia Tech, telling the developing story in print and online."

The Washington Post describes the winning team as:

Eleven bylined reporters and 50 other journalists, more than half on The Post’s Metro staff, and staff members of the paper’s Web site contributed to the coverage of the mass slayings at Virginia Tech that won the Pulitzer for breaking news.

Jose Antonio Vargas was one of the 11 bylined reporters. He had a sole byline on one article and a co-byline with Michael E. Ruane on another article. Both of his articles are available via the Pulitzer link above. Since Jose Antonio Vargas would have been about 26 years old at the time these articles were written, he most likely was not a leading force on the Washington Post Staff that won this Pulitzer Prize

Note to readers: stories told by an illegal alien always need to be verified
