Annotation "Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, called 'the most famous undocumented immigrant in America,' tackles one of the defining issues of our time in this explosive and deeply personal call to arms. 'This is not a book about the politics of immigration. This book - at its core - is not about immigration at all. This book is about homelessness, not in a traditional sense, but in the unsettled, unmoored psychological state that undocumented immigrants like myself find ourselves in. This book is about lying and being forced to lie to get by; about passing as an American and as a contributing citizen; about families, keeping them together, and having to make new ones when you can't. This book is about constantly hiding from the government and, in the process, hiding from ourselves. This book is about what it means to not have a home. After 25 years of living illegally in a country that does not consider me one of its own, this book is the closest thing I have to freedom.' - Jose Antonio Vargas, from Dear America" -- Provided by publisher.

"Periodista Jose Antonio Vargas, el ganador del Premio Pulitzer conocido como 'el inmigrante indocumentado más famoso de los Estados Unidos,' aborda una de las cuestiones que definen nuestro tiempo en esto libro explosiva y profundamente personal llamada a las armas. Natural de Filipinas, Vargas fue llevado ilegalmente a los Estados Unidos cuando tenía 12 años. Durante más de dos décadas, vivió oculto de todos, logrando escribir para algunos de las publicaciones más prestigiosas de EE. UU., como The Washington Post y The New Yorker. Pero en 2011, Vargas reveló públicamente su estatus de indocumentado, arriesgando su carrera y seguridad personal. Desde entonces, Vargas ha cuestionado la que significa de ser estadounidense y dedica su vida a dar voz a los inmigrantes y defender sus derechos, no solamente en EE. UU sino también en el mundo entero. "Querida América: Notas de un ciudadano indocumentado" no es un libro sobre la política de inmigración. Es una defensa íntima y apasionada de ciudadanía y el sentido de pertenencia." -- Goodreads.
