Undocumented Resources

Undocumented individuals in the United States are defined as people who have entered or reside within the U.S. without official government authorization. Although undocumented resources is included in the Latinx Resource Guide, not all undocumented individuals are from Latin America, but are from all over the world. Language around undocumented people is constantly changing, for more information, please read “Words Matter: Illegal Immigrant, Undocumented Immigrant, or Unauthorized Immigrant?” by Jonathan Kwan.
