Dan El Padilla Peralta: Undocumented says
At a time when some try to make immigration an issue for political campaigns, Dan-el Padilla Peralta’s story - and the book he’s written of that story - comes as a pointed example of what’s at stake. He visits this evening with Undocumented: A Dominican Boy’s Odyssey from a Homeless Shelter to the Ivy League, a brilliant account of how he navigated a difficult way.

“Undocumented is an impassioned counterargument to those who feel, as did some of Peralta’s more xenophobic classmates that “illegals” are good-for-nothings who take jobs from Americans and deserve to be kicked out of the country. No one who reads this story of a brilliant young man and his proud mother will automatically equate undocumented immigrant with idle parasite. That stereotype is something else we shouldn’t take for granted.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Part memoir, part confessional, and part coming-of-age tale, Peralta’s story holds several truths on the road through loss, sacrifice, and achievement to gaining his slice of the American dream.”—Publishers Weekly
