A Sandra Bullock Romantic Comedy Should Not Decide American Immigration Policy, Right?

It's not a simple task to make the immigration issue easy to understand, but Jose Antonio Vargas is no ordinary journalist. From his first big shock in life at 2:08, to having his life turned upside down by everyone's favorite billionaire at 4:37, to surprising Mitt Romney with a bold sign at 8:18, Vargas breaks down what it means to be an American living in America illegally. Skip to 9:19 for a shocking demonstration of how out of touch politicians are with immigration reform, and watch an emotionally devastated Vargas explain why you should never use "illegal" as a noun at 11:18.

Don't miss the Sandra Bullock immigration policy at 8:48.
