    McCormick quoted in AP article on deadly protests in Colombia

    Thousands of Colombians have taken to the streets to vent their anger at the government. But the mostly peaceful, nationwide protests have turned deadly, with at least 26 people killed and human rights groups warning of increasing abuses by security forces. Police in Colombia have been "armed to the teeth" for decades as they fought along the military against guerrillas and drug traffickers, says Gladys McCormick. "Many of these officers kind of came of age as a result of that culture, but also they have the weaponry," McCormick says. "So, their go-to response is always to sort of like go hard line and then ask questions later."

    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."
