About the Author
A year after migrating to the U.S., he co-founded what would become North Carolinas largest Spanish-language newspaper, La Conexión. While running the newspaper, he also served on numerous initiatives to improve conditions for Latinos, including the North Carolina Governors Advisory Council on Latino Issues and the Journal of Minority Issues and Economic Development.
Angel later moved to Washington, D.C. to attend the Howard University School of Law, where he focused his course study on civil rights and immigrants legal barriers. While at Howard he continued his advocacy work, furnishing his time to the Legal Aid Bureau of Maryland as a liaison to the Latino community and helping to write the Spanish-language version of the Constitution for the Maryland Latino Coalition for Justice.
During his second year of law school, Angel began work on Guía y Formularios de Inmigración and the other books in the Libros Simples imprint.
