“My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant” by Jose Antonio Vargas

This is a great article by Jose Antonio Vargas on life as an undocumented immigrant on New York Times Magazine. Mr. Vargas shared a Pulitzer Prize for his coverage on Virginia Tech shooting. His truthful and courageous depiction on life as an undocumented immigrant provides great insights into the inner struggle as well as daily problems undocumented immigrants face.
