• “By presenting undeniable evidence of the positive economic
    contributions undocumented immigrants make . . . along with
    compelling stories . . . Schwab successfully debunks common
    misconceptions promoted by anti-immigrant groups.”

    ~Paulina Gonzalez, Executive Director of Strategic Actions for a Just Economy

  • “Our current immigration policy is clearly broken, and it won’t be fixed until more Americans are aware of the issues and options involved. This book is a great place to start.”

    ~G. David Gearhart, Chancellor of the University of Arkansas

In Right to Dream, William A. Schwab brings a sociologist’s perspective to understanding immigration Schwab discusses and debunks the five most common arguments against the DREAM Act, shows how this “fourth wave” of immigrants is learning English and assimilating more rapidly than previous waves, and shares the stories of undocumented youth who are currently being held responsible for the actions of their parents. Schwab points out that instead of wasting the K-12 education that undocumented youth currently receive, the DREAM Act would allow these young people to attend college with in-state tuition and work and travel freely while opening a path to citizenship.
