“We’re more humane. More compassionate. And we are fighting for a better America”: Undocumented Americans.
On July 15th one of the most famous undocumented immigrants in the USA and founder of ‘Define American’, Jose Antonio Vargas, was detained in the Texas border town of McAllen where he was raising awareness of the surge of refugee undocumented children fleeing Central America . Emigrating from the Philippines at the age of twelve, Vargas relocated to California and only when trying to obtain a drivers permit did he discover the truth that he was here illegally.
In 2008, Vargas won a Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of the Virginia Tech shootings. Furthermore in 2011, in order to advocate change to the nation’s immigration policy, Vargas published an article about his undocumented status for The New York Times Sunday Magazine. Vargas directed his first film “Documented” in 2013, which chronicles his predicament and highlights the experience of other undocumented immigrants.
