For this program, we are talking with Chester Ruiz.
He is a first generation Californian with Nicaraguan heritage, but also an entrepreneur, self-made millionaire, and civil rights activist. Chester explains how home ownership and family is the foundation of most immigrants and how the American dream is all related with legal residency, family, the right to work and education. This American dream is closely tied to his ideas for civil rights and to his new enterprise.
