Dr. Mario Mendoza, MD, MS
Dr. Mendoza is the Founder of the nonprofit organization, Lifeundocumented.org, and the executive producer of a self-funded documentary (An Undocumented Immigrant Story: Immigrant Data and 1986 Amnesty) that speaks to his personal story as an undocumented immigrant and to published data on undocumented immigration. He quit his industry job in July 2019 to focus on the nonprofit work.
The mission of Lifeundocumented.org is three-fold: to speak up for and to humanize the undocumented immigrant through their stories; to add inspiring undocumented immigrant stories and data to the media rhetoric, and to support immigration policy that is humane, reasonable, globally responsive, and data-based. Lifeundocumented.org supports a vision of global immigration policy that honors global migration as a basic human right.
