For Undocumented Immigrants, Activism Can Bring Threat of Deportation

Courtney Martin in the Nation has an article about how undocumented immigrant political activists, as well as those who do not try to "hide" their status, can risk deportation.  One example given was Mandeep Chantal, a UC Davis honors student who recently was given a stay of deportation just hours before she was to board a return flight to India.  The recent "coming out of the closet" of Pulitzer Prize winning reporter Jose Antonio Vargas as an undocumented immigrant should have us all thinking about who "we" are as a community, society, and as a nation.
