On Sunday, June 29, at 9 p.m. EST, the Cable News Network (CNN) will be airing the CNN Film, “Documented.” This film is the story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas and other undocumented immigrants in this country. Vargas, who wrote, produced and directed this film, describes himself as a gay, undocumented Filipino-American. Vargas states, “I am not the ‘illegal’ you think I am, and immigration is not what you think it is.” Vargas won the Pulitzer Prize as part of a team of Washington Post reporters for their coverage of the Virginia Tech shootings.
MVP Law Group‘s Managing Attorney, Kellie Lego attended an advanced screening of the film in Boston at the AILA Annual National Immigration Conference last week. Jose Antonio Vargas held a question and answer session with attendees after the film. She felt the film was very informative. She encourages everyone to watch this film! No matter where you stand concerning immigration in the United States, this film promises to give you a different insight into the problem.
