Deported: Immigrant Policing, Disposable Labor, and Global Capitalism

Deported: Immigrant Policing, Disposable Labor, and Global Capitalism

Richard Velasquez reviews Deported: Immigrant Policing, Disposable Labor, and Global Capitalism, by Tanya Maria Golash-Boza. Based on the author’s interviews with 147 deportees from Guatemala, Jamaica, Brazil, and the Dominican Republic, the author connects economic restructuring, migration, race, class, and militarization to contemporary capitalism. Additionally in this book, the author explores mass incarceration and heavy policing focused on African Americans and native-born Latinos. Policy and human experience guide the larger questions, with nuance and depth.
