Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen

This book is about Jose Antonio Vargas
"Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen" by Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas is a national bestseller that delves deeply into the heart and turmoil of undocumented life in the United States. Released on September 3, 2019, this memoir is not just about immigration; it is an intimate exploration of the psychological homelessness experienced by undocumented immigrants, who live concealed lives under the constant threat of exposure. Vargas, known as the most famous undocumented immigrant in America, shares his personal journey of lying and passing as an American citizen to preserve a semblance of normalcy, all while striving to maintain family ties and forge new connections in a society that does not recognize him as one of its own. This book is a potent call to arms that challenges the reader to reconsider the human aspect behind immigration debates. Ideal for adult education classes, it addresses critical themes in immigrant rights and racial justice, urging a deeper understanding of identity, belonging, and the painful sacrifices made for survival.
