    McCormick discusses the Mexican president's US visit with AP, CNN

    "López Obrador's visit will allow [Trump] to showcase how he has bent Mexico to his will by reminding voters that this is a 'very good deal' for the US while signaling his achievements at strong-arming Mexico on immigration policies," Gladys McCormick told CNN. She also spoke with the Associated Press about President Andrés Manuel López Obrador's meeting with President Trump.


    Ma quoted in SCMP article on Trump's visa rules for foreign students

    "A large majority of Chinese students [are] coming to study in the US not for political reasons," says Yingyi Ma, associate professor of sociology. "What they really want is quality education opportunities, so that they can improve their career prospects, or they can broaden their horizons and really enjoy being in the process of cultivating their global citizenship."

    Cleary study on rights of indigenous women in Mexico published in LAPS

    "Subordinated Autonomy and the Political Inclusion of Women in Indigenous Mexico," written by Matthew Cleary, was published in Latin American Politics and Society.

    "Everything he (Lopez Obrador) has put into place in terms of security has either been amateur or just very papered over in terms of political rhetoric," Gladys McCormick told Al Jazeera. "The optics of what is happening on this two year anniversary are disheartening for what lays ahead," she added, "because what we are essentially going to get is more of the same." McCormick also spoke to Reuters about the assassination attempt on Mexico City's chief of police.
