From the Miami Herald:

Jose Antonio Vargas, an undocumented journalist who helped the Washington Post win a Pulitzer Prize, said Thursday night in Miami that the DREAM Act would help not only tens of thousands of young immigrants like himself but also the country as a whole because it would benefit financially.

“The DREAM Act is not a form of amnesty,” Vargas said in his speech to the annual dinner of the Miami-based immigrant rights organization Americans for Immigrant Justice. “It’s simply a commonsense solution to a complex problem . . . they [the young immigrants] want to pay taxes. They want to contribute. In a complex economy, don’t we want more taxpaying Americans?”
