Dr. Montoya’s next book project, An International History of US Immigration Policy, Identity and Building a Nation (Bloomsbury Academic), will offer a series of case studies on different immigrant groups, in order to demonstrate how U.S. immigration restriction effected U.S. foreign relations from the early twentieth century to the early twenty-first century. He has written several articles, book reviews, and was a co-editor of and contributor to Beyond 1917: American Legacies of the Great War, (Oxford University Press, 2017).
