Illegal Alien Writer Arrested for Driving Without a License, Won't Be Deported
"Reporter Jose Vargas was arrested Friday morning and charged with driving without a valid driver's license, a misdemeanor," MinnPost.com reports. "His arrest here on a traffic violation is newsworthy because the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office, which operates the county jail, participates in Secure Communities, a Bush administration initiative to secure local law enforcement cooperation in reporting undocumented immigrants to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials."
However, "Immigration authorities said Monday they won't take action against a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who was arrested in Minnesota for driving without a valid license," the Washington Post reports.
