Jose Antonio Vargas is a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, former lecturer at Georgetown University and an undocumented immigrant. At age sixteen, Vargas discovered he was an undocumented immigrant and, despite his immense success as a journalist, he kept his immigration status a secret until recently. Vargas seeks to elevate the conversation about immigration and challenge notions of what defines "American."
