Documented: Jose Antiono Vargas (Sold Out)
Jose Antonio Vargas was sent from the Philippines to live with his grandparents in California when he was 12 years old. Until he applied for a driver’s license at 16 – and was denied because his ID was fake – he didn’t know he was undocumented. After going to college on a full scholarship and winning a Pulitzer Prize at the Washington Post, Vargas decided to share his secret, putting his career in jeopardy. He “came out” as an undocumented immigrant in an essay he wrote for the New York Times Magazine in 2011. At the same time, he started filming a documentary about his plight – which is the plight of many young immigrants here. They’re called “DREAMers,” from the now-moribund Dream Act, which would create a pathway to U.S. citizenship for children sent or brought to the U.S. by their families. Vargas has become a prominent member of this increasingly activist group.

Join Asia Society welcoming Mr. Vargas as he discusses his struggle and screens his new film, Documented, a revealing look into the human face of an intense policy debate.
