NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles® )- Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump today called for the arrest and deportation of Filipino José Antonio Vargas, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who came out as an undocumented immigrant years ago.
Trump issued the call after conservative columnist Ann Coulter made the suggestion in an interview with Megyn Kelly of FOX News.
Trump, who just arrived in New York after a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border in Laredo, Texas, accepted Coulter’s challenge and asked the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, to implement U.S. immigration laws concerning immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally.
Vargas, who founded the group ‘Define American,’ recently released a documentary, ‘White People’ which aired on MTV.
Meanwhile, conservative blogger Michelle Malkin, a Filipino American, agreed with Coulter about Vargas’ arrest and deportation. “I am a U.S. citizen because I worked hard for it,” Malkin said. “I had to find a U.S. citizen to marry.”
