McCormick quoted in UPI article on militarizing police in Mexico

Gladys McCormick 2017Gladys McCormick, associate professor of history and Jay and Debe Moskowitz Endowed Chair in Mexico-U.S. Relations, was interviewed for the UPI article "Mexico's new president criticized for militarizing police." McCormick questions how the new force will be implemented. "The devil is in the details. It's not just about implementation," says McCormick. "It's also about how this proposal will be paid for, and how will this move from the federal to the state level. There is nothing new here when it comes to putting military officers in charge of a police force. This is the same thing that has been trotted out by other administrations." 12/05/18
