Jose Antonio Vargas, the Pulitzer Prize-winning illegal alien journalist, is the public face for amnesty.

To celebrate Labor Day, Vargas, who is still in the country in spite of his status and identity theft, took to Twitter to thank illegal aliens for the “labor our country depends on.”

That tweet set off a series of angry responses.

Another user pointed out why the word “illegal” is used in reference to illegal aliens.

Vargas responded to his critics by equating knowingly entering the country illegally, or willingly overstaying a visa, with segregationist Jim Crow laws.
