Illegal immigrant activist Jose Antonio Vargas has reportedly been detained at the McAllen Border Patrol station in Texas after attempting to go through airport security without a U.S. government-issued ID (the Filipino passport and pocket U.S. Constitution he was carrying didn’t do the trick).

Despite the fact that Vargas flagrantly violated the law, supporters are mounting a campaign to keep him from being deported:

Demanding it!

And then there’s this gal:

Alllllllrighty, then.

But maybe the #DontDeportJose crowd is on to something. Maybe he shouldn’t be deported — yet:
