Jose Antonio Vargas is an illegal immigrant.
He’s done work for major liberal-leaning news outlets all over the United States — and he’s worked with CNN recently.
According to legal experts, he’s breaking the law in many, many ways.
The Daily Caller reports:
Jose Antonio Vargas, who directed MTV’s “White People” documentary, has also done work for CNN, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, The Huffington Post, The New York Times and the Greater Talent Network Speaker’s Bureau — companies that may also find themselves in legal trouble.
Vargas, for his part, appears to be breaking the law by contracting his labor to several media companies through the use of limited liability companies, according to several legal professionals contacted by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Specifically, acquisitions of Vargas’s labor appear to violate the Immigration and Nationality Act 274A – Unlawful Employment of Aliens of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) code.
“The intent of the statute is clear, I think,” Jan C. Ting, a former assistant commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) and immigration law professor, told TheDCNF. “I think any member of Congress who was asked about this would have to conclude that the intent of the Congress is to preclude the kind of contractual arrangements that [Vargas] entered into, and I think the purpose for which they were entered into was transparent.”
“I think anyone who deals with him knows that he’s not legally present in the United States, so I think it’s a clear violation,” Ting said.
Much of the work for which Vargas is hired specifically pertains to his status as an illegal alien and as an unofficial spokesman for that group.
“The key word in the statute is the hiring of an alien knowing the alien is unauthorized,” explained the former INS assistant commissioner. “So, the statute of subsection A4 says entering into [a] contract with someone is the same as hiring, so A4 takes you up to A1A, which says now since it’s considered hiring, the hiring of someone, an alien, knowing the alien is unauthorized, is unlawful.”
