Michael Olivas
(Houston) has a forthcoming Wayne Law Review paper posted at http://www.law.uh.edu/ihelg/monograph/09-08.pdf on the political economy of the DREAM Act.  He reports that there is a developing genre of scholarship, including state-level and comparative (state to state) work on the statutes. There is, of course, a growing book literature as well, including recent full length works by Alejandra Rincon, William Perez, and Maria Pabon Lopez and Gerardo Lopez. Here are a few other publications:
