The state of Washington has canceled the driver’s license of Jose Antonio Vargas, the former Washington Post and San Francisco Chronicle reporter who revealed last month that he is an illegal immigrant. The Seattle Times says that while illegal immigrants can still obtain licenses in Washington state, licensing officials said they canceled Vargas’ license because he could not prove he lived in the state when he obtained it, as required by law. In a New York Times Magazine piece he wrote under the headline, "My life as an undocumented immigrant," Vargas laid bare details of a life built on lies that started with his arrival as a 12-year-old on a fake passport from the Philippines 18 years ago.
