Living the DREAM: The Stories of Undocumented Latino Youth


In “Living the DREAM: The Stories of Undocumented Latino Youth,” Professor Maria Chávez and her co-authors systematically examine the experiences faced by undocumented youth since President Obama’s 2012 implementation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals process. Latinos are the largest ethno-racial minority group, projected to constitute 30 percent of the U.S. population by 2050, so through 101 in-depth interviews of Latino youth in California, Oregon, Texas and Washington—including Ana Sofia—we illustrate with real lives how the obstacles DREAMers face affect their ability to live the American dream.
