In 1994 when California introduced proposition #186 denying illegal immigrants rights to public education, social services and health care, Uribe decided to make illegal immigration his lifelong project and help create a more humane world.

Uribe was born in Jalisco, Mexico and emigrated with his family to the United States. He worked at the Jacksonville Journal-Courier while attending MacMurray College in Jacksonville. After graduating Uribe worked full-time at the Journal- Courier, then went on to work at the, Santa Fe Mexican and is currently at the Chicago Tribune.
