Jose Antonio Vargas, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who discovered that as a teen he had been brought to the U.S. illegally, told a near-capacity crowd at Los Altos High School that there’s a need for immigration reform.

Here’s a link to the Mountain View Voice’s report of the Nov. 18 talk in which Vargas said he is confident that President Obama will pass comprehensive immigration reform within a year.

Vargas was born in the Philippines but grew up in Mountain View and continued in journalism with stops at the Mountain View Voice, San Francisco Chronicle and Washington Post.
