Vargas and Advocates Will Apply for Deportation Deferrals

Jose Antonio Vargas and ten other people who are in the United States without authorized immigration status are planning on applying for deportation deferrals,  as reported by Julia Preston of the NYT today. 

In particular, Mr. Vargas said that he and the other advocates will be asking, "the White House to halt deportations for most of the estimated 11 million immigrants here illegally by vastly expanding a 2012 program of deferrals for young people who came when they were children."

The full link to the NYT article is here.

We have blogged about Mr. Vargas a few times before: here (after Border Patrol in McAllen, TX released him)  here (when he came to UC Davis School of Law), here (about his film, "Documented."
