    Ma featured in Chronicle piece on international students, racism in US

    The shootings at Asian-run spas near Atlanta were a dark moment in a grim year for anti-Asian racism—since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the group Stop AAPI Hate has catalogued nearly 3,800 incidents of anti-Asian discrimination or xenophobia. "The very fact that six out of eight victims are Asian women definitely makes the violence racialized and gendered," says Yingyi Ma. "And given that 70 percent of all international students in the United States are from Asia, I think that would definitely make them very, very afraid." But, adds Ma, "I would argue that anti-Asian racism is always there."

    McCormick talks to AP, Bloomberg about the US-Mexico border crisis

    A U.S. delegation discussed immigration and regional development in a series of meetings in Mexico on Tuesday at a time when the rising number of migrants arriving at their shared border has raised concerns in both countries. Gladys McCormick tells the Associated Press that while the Biden administration was employing a more diplomatic approach than Trump did, the U.S. delegation came in wanting "to have the Mexicans do some of their dirty work, which is yet again to stop the flow of people coming in on the southern border." McCormick was also quoted in the Bloomberg article, "U.S., Mexico Talk ‘Orderly’ Migration Amid More Crossings," and in the Sinclair Broadcast Group article, "Biden pushes for more cooperation from Mexico amid migrant surge."

     

    McCormick discusses US-Mexico immigration in Al Jazeera article

    Cooperation with Mexico on immigration is expected to remain a top priority for the U.S. Despite President Biden’s pledge to loosen Trump’s restrictive border policies, he needs Mexico to regulate the growing number of Central American migrants who are arriving, in order to avoid overwhelming the U.S.’s processing capacity, or cause a political backlash. "[President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador] will have to start stationing more numbers of the National Guard not just at the southern border, but on the northern border too," says Gladys McCormick, Jay and Debe Moskowitz Endowed Chair in Mexico-U.S. Relations. She was quoted in the Al Jazeera article, "Biden to broaden US-Mexican relations, keep immigration at top."

     

    Khalil discusses impact of the Abraham Accords in Armada International

    Leaders in Washington, D.C., have concluded that President Biden will probably not seek to change "the Abraham Accords," the U.S.-brokered agreements that normalized Israeli diplomatic relations with the United Arab Emirates and with Bahrain. Osamah Khalil, associate professor of history, says that "the Abraham Accords will facilitate greater arms sales to the Persian Gulf region. Even before the agreement, the United Arab Emirates sought a greater role in U.S. military planning and operations and purchased large quantities of U.S. weapons." Khalil was quoted in the Armada International article, "New Dimension to Gulf."
