Naomi Glenn-Levin Rodriguez (PhD, 2013) has published a book entitled "Fragile Families: Foster Care, Immigration, and Citizenship", based on research conducted in the San Diego-Tijuana region between 2008 and 2012. According to the University of Pennsylvania Press, "Fragile Families tells the stories of children, parents, social workers, and legal actors enmeshed in the child welfare system, and sheds light on the particular challenges faced by the children of detained and deported non-U.S. citizen parents who are simultaneously caught up in the immigration system in this border region."

Naomi Glenn-Levin Rodriguez teaches anthropology at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in New York state. Rodriguez's UCSC career was punctuated by the winning of a Fulbright Scholarship in 2010, and she was awarded a PhD from the Department of Anthropology in 2013.
