"No matter how you feel about the immigration debate now,” he said, “I guarantee you'll see it differently 90 minutes from now. And that's the hallmark of a great story."
“Documented” is my story, and I now share it in San Diego -- where almost 200,000 people are undocumented.
If you happen to watch Real Time, Jose Antonio Vargas was on tonight and his film, Documented, is screening this week in San Diego, including some Q&A sessions after a few of the showings. I just bought a ticket to Saturday's showing at 5:30pm if anyone cares to join me.
Here's more info:

Define American, founded by Jose Antonio Vargas in 2011, is a media and culture campaign using the power of story to transcend politics and shift conversation around immigration, identity, and citizenship in America. You can learn more at www.defineamerican.com.
Vargas began working on the documentary shortly before “outing” himself as undocumented in a groundbreaking June 2011 New York Times Magazine essay, “My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant.” Sent here from the Philippines at age 12 by his mother to live with his grandparents - naturalized citizens - in Mountain View, CA, Vargas found out he was undocumented when he was 16. "Documented" follows Jose as he travels around the country, speaking to people across America and sharing his personal experience in order to spark an honest dialogue about immigration and the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the US today. The film also explores his relationship with his mom - whom he hasn't seen in person in over 20 years.
CNN Films acquired the North American broadcast rights to “Documented” in November 2013, before its international premiere at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam and following its world premiere at the AFI Docs festival in Washington, D.C. in June 2013.
"Documented" is a project of Define American, and executive producers include Sean Parker, Matthew HIltzik, Liz Simons, Scott Budnick, Janet Yang and Kevin Iwashina. "Documented" is the inaugural film by Apo Anak Productions, created by Vargas in honor of his grandparents and mother. In Tagalog, Vargas' native language, "apo" means grandchild and "anak" means "child." For more information, please visit: documentedthefilm.com.

During the Cedar Fire a few years back, I was live posting for 3 days straight. Now, I don't have to and neither do you. Our news channels are deficient and you just can't trust your Facebook wall. Instead, use your phone or tablet and download the San Diego County Emergency app. You'll get evacuation updates, school closures and more, plus you can create a disaster plan for your family: where to meet if separated, where to take pets, places to stay, etc. Once you've downloaded the Emergency App, do yourself a favor and download SD311 (non emergency city service info and reporting) and 511 San Diego (real time traffic and transit info)
Plan and prepare for disasters and receive important emergency information. Check out the free SD Emergency app for Android and iOS: http://www.readysandiego.org/sd-emergency-app-redirect/
