About Documented

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas began working on "Documented" shortly before "outing" himself as undocumented in a groundbreaking New York Times Magazine essay, "My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant." Vargas has traveled around the United States, telling his story in solidarity with the more than 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the country. As he connected with others -- particularly those who, like Vargas, came to the United States as children -- his personal reflections compelled him to reconnect with his mother, whom he had not seen in 20 years.
