Golash-Boza’s most recent work is on the social consequences of immigration policy, with a focus on deportations. She recently finished a book based on interviews with 150 people who were deported from the United States. This research builds on previous work on immigration policy. Her book, Immigration Nation, explains how U.S. immigration policy has negatively affected the human rights of immigrants and their family members. Another book, Due Process Denied, describes how non-citizens can be detained and deported without regard for constitutional limits on disproportionate punishment. Gloash-Boza has also published work on Latino racial identity and classification in the United States as well as on racial dynamics in Latin America. Her first book, Yo Soy Negro: Blackness in Peru, is the first book in English on meanings of blackness in Peru.
