Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and undocumented immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas suspected he wouldn't get out.
His fear came to fruition Tuesday morning when he was detained at a Texas airport while trying to pass through security en route to Los Angeles, said Ryan Eller, campaign director for Define American, a group Vargas founded in 2011.
At 6:30pm ET, Newt Gingrich and Van Jones host a debate with Reps. Michele Bachmann and Charlie Rangel about the immigration crisis in the United States.
