ATLANTA (AP) - A national movement of young illegal immigrants
declaring themselves "undocumented and unafraid" got a boost this
week when a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist announced he's been
living in the country illegally.
The revelation by former Washington Post reporter Jose Antonio
Vargas comes as groups of illegal immigrant youth organize rallies,
letter-writing campaigns and sit-ins. They want the federal
government to relax immigration rules for people were brought to
the U.S. illegally as children by their parents.
Eighteen-year-old Dulce Guerrero is helping stage a
rally next week at the Georgia State Capitol. The recent high
school grad and others say it's worth risking deportation to call
attention to their cause.
