As Twitchy reported earlier,  proud “undocumented American” Jose Antonio Vargas was detained at McAllen Airport in Texas and taken to the Border Patrol station for processing this morning. Vargas tweeted that he had only two forms of identification: a Philippine passport and his pocketbook U.S. Constitution.

Supporters immediately began tweeting the #DontDeportJose hashtag, and as the day has worn on, even bigger names have become involved. Take, for example, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who tweeted that Vargas “exemplifies what America is about.”

Florida Rep. Alan Grayson and the SEIU weighed in also, speaking for the thousands of children brought to America illegally as minors.

Do all of these illegals detained at the border “exemplify what America is about?”
