Join us on March 9 to hear Princeton University professor and author of Undocumented Dan-El Padilla Peralta share the story of his own American dream journey.  His life has taken him from the Dominican Republic to a  New York City homeless shelter as an undocumented immigrant, and eventually rising to the top of his Princeton class.

What obstacles did his family have to overcome coming to the US? How did life in a homeless shelter in the Bronx kindle his passion for books and learning? What lessons might be drawn from Undocumented to shed light on the plight of America’s undocumented?

Born in the Dominican Republic, Dan-el Padilla Peralta came to the US with his family at the age of four. He graduated from Princeton University, where he was chosen salutatorian of the class of 2006. He received his MPhil from the University of Oxford and his PhD in classics from Stanford University. He is currently a Mellon Research Fellow at Columbia University.

The Dream Machine: the journey from undocumented to deported.
