Peggy Orchowski talked about her book Immigration and the American Dream: Battling the Political Hype and Hysteria (Rowman and Littlefield Publishers; June 25, 2008). She said her book covers topics such as how different groups frame the issues, and how there is a debate over the word "amnesty" rather than why the 1986 amnesty bill did not work. She was interviewed at the 2008 National Press Club Book Fair.
