Junot Diaz, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Nobel Prize and MacArthur grant for his writing, currently serves on the board of advisors at Freedom University in Georgia. The college is dedicated to teaching undocumented immigrants–an education that Diaz says is necessary as every undocumented immigrant is “a future American.”

He frames the immigrant debate with what he calls the “Superman Question”:”Superman comes, lands in America==he’s one of these kids,” he poses to Stephen Colbert. “He’s illegal…and you’ve got to decide what we’re going to do with Superman.”
