An award-winning journalist who has become a vocal activist for illegal immigrants is detained at the airport in McAllen. This, about the same time our own Matt Patrick arrived in south Texas for his broadcasts from the border, airing Wednesday through Friday this week on KTRH. Officials say 30-year-old Jose Antonio Vargas did not have appropriate documentation. Vargas has since been released.

The activist group "United We Dream" released a statement calling the border patrol a "rogue agency." This, while re-confirming their support for Vargas.

According to "The Blaze," the former Washington Post reporter illegally came to the U.S. from the Philippines when he was 12. He publically admitted his status in 2011.
