Book Launch: Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen by Jose Antonio Vargas — in conversation w/ MSNBC's Joy Reid
DEAR AMERICA is as much about the excruciating state of existence of undocumented immigrants as it is about the politics of immigration. It is about being forced to lie to survive; about not having a home; about passing as an American in the face of condescension and discrimination; and about families, keeping them together, and having to make new ones who will take their own risks to help you survive and thrive in this country. It is about hiding from the government, and in the process, hiding from yourself.
