"Reward Assimilation" works to promote social capital. It encourages Americans to accept the Dream Act and allow undocumented immigrants to stay here once they finish their education if they were brought here as children. It states that learning English and finishing high school against odds earns these children their spots in American society, added to the fact that immigrants do the dirty work in low end jobs across the country. Inviting us to welcome these immigrants as valuable members of society promotes social capital by burning the bridge between white America and illegal immigrants. They compliment the economy and society thus creating a large social network of business partners and colorful classrooms.
