MÉXICO Y LOS MIGRANTES (O: PARA COMPRENDER A TRUMP) / GABRIEL GUERRA / EL UNIVERSAL
¿Para comprender a Trump? Ya sé lo que estarán pensando mis muy apreciados lectores: éste ya se volvió loco, perdió la razón, está tratando de justificar al nuevo innombrable. No discutiré sobre las dos primeras, pero ciertamente NO estoy tratando de defender, ni mucho menos justificar, a quien a mi juicio representa como nadie en mucho tiempo lo peor de la sociedad estadounidense.

U.S. WILL PAY FOR THE WALL, AS LONG AS MEXICO REIMBURSES IT: TRUMP / EL UNIVERSAL
In a speech delivered in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Republican nominee to the U.S. 2016 Presidency, Donald Trump, outlined how he would use his first one-hundred days in presidency and emphasized today, that he “will build” a wall in the Mexican-American border that would be financed by the U.S. and be “reimbursed” by Mexico, while at the same time he would put a halt to immigration “from regions prone to the threat of terrorism”, without detailing the specific path he would take for such purpose.

EL POTRILLO ROMPE FRONTERAS CON SU VOZ / EL UNIVERSAL
Alejandro Fernández dejó en claro que ni un muro puede detener la fuerza de los mexicanos.

TRUMP’S CLAIM THAT CLINTON ‘ALLOWED THOUSANDS OF CRIMINAL ALIENS TO BE RELEASED’ / GLENN KESSLER / WASHINGTON POST
“Secretary of State Hillary Clinton allowed thousands of criminal aliens to be released because their home countries wouldn’t take them back, because they’re smart. They don’t want to take back killers and drug dealers and all of the people that we’re sending back. It was just reported, and Hillary took it — she said, ‘All right, look, bring them back, bring them back. They won’t take them. Bring them back.’”

GOP INACTION ON IMMIGRATION LED TO TRUMP / WASHINGTON POST
In her Oct. 19 op-ed, “The GOP paved Trump’s ugly path,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) failed to mention the principal Republican culprits who caused Donald Trump to get the Republican presidential nomination: former House speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte (R-Va.). In 2013, by a vote of 68-32, the Senate passed an immigration reform bill, but Boehner and Goodlatte never allowed the House to vote on it.

IMMIGRATION STATUS SERVES AS BARRIER FOR SOME STUDENTS / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Some students say they're losing out despite a New Mexico law that allows them in-state tuition at public colleges or universities and state-funded financial aid regardless of their immigration status. The law has been in effect for 11 years but New Mexico's public universities and colleges operate independently from one another and their policies regarding immigrant students vary. New Mexico Highlands University imposes some of the toughest barriers, according to interviews conducted by The Santa Fe New Mexican with students and school officials from around the state.

POLICY PRESCRIPTIONS: TRUMP AND CLINTON ON IMMIGRATION / STEVE PEOPLES / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
There is no doubt the two presidential candidates have dramatically different approaches on immigration. In tone, Republican Donald Trump often highlights violent crimes perpetrated by immigrants in the country illegally, with aggressive rhetoric that emphasizes nationalism. Democrat Hillary Clinton features a softer approach that embraces diversity and the value of keeping immigrant families together, even as her critics accuse her of promoting "open borders." It's not just talk.

MINNESOTA IMMIGRANTS WATCH PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION CLOSELY / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Many of Minnesota's hundreds of thousands of immigrants are closely watching this year's presidential election as the two major-party candidates have contrasting stances on immigration. Republican candidate Donald Trump has called for mass deportations of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally and stricter rules for handling refugees, while Democratic Hillary Clinton wants to overhaul immigration laws to include a path to citizenship. Latino businessman and Trump supporter Rick Aguilar from St. Paul said he believes Trump initially spoke too harshly and broadly about immigrants, but that he agrees with his border security concern.

60% OF REPUBLICANS BELIEVE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS VOTE; 43% BELIEVE PEOPLE VOTE USING DEAD PEOPLE’S NAMES / SAM CORBETT-DAVIES, TOBIAS KONITZER AND DAVID ROTHSCHILD / THE WASHINGTON POST
The 2016 presidential campaign has become a referendum on the process of American electoral democracy itself. Republican candidate Donald Trump’s baseless claims of a “rigged” election and his refusal to promise to accept the outcome of November’s vote have focused renewed attention on allegations of voter fraud.

'HIGH THREAT' TEXAS BORDER BUSTS AREN'T ALWAYS / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Drivers in Texas busted for drunken driving, not paying child support or low-level drug offenses are among thousands of "high-threat" criminal arrests being counted as part of a nearly $1 billion mission to secure the border with Mexico, an Associated Press analysis has found. Having once claimed that conventional crime data doesn't fully capture the dangers to public safety and homeland security, the Texas Department of Public Safety classified more than 1,800 offenders arrested near the border by highway troopers in 2015 as "high threat criminals."

JAN BREWER DIALS BACK ON COMMENTS ON ARIZONA LATINO VOTE / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer appears to be backtracking on controversial comments she made about Hispanic voters. KTVK-TV in Phoenix reports that Brewer has drawn criticism for telling a Boston Globe reporter that Latinos "don't get out and vote." In the article, which was posted Friday, the Republican had been asked if Democratic-leaning Hispanics would help presidential nominee Hillary Clinton win Arizona. Brewer took to her Twitter account Saturday and said she would love to see "100 percent turnout for all demographics" and that every vote matters.

TERRIFYING, HEART-RENDING, DEFEATING: TEN HOURS ON THE BORDER WITH ONE LATINA AGENT / LISA REIN / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
A dispatcher's voice crackled over the scanner, and Raquel Medina turned up the sound. Traffic north of the river. An agent had spotted footprints in the dirt. Medina gunned the engine of her green and white U.S. Border Patrol truck, drove down a dirt road, pulled over and plunged into the mesquite brush. It was 106 degrees. She darted through spiny bushes that reached above her 5-foot-8-inch frame. A branch caught her frizzy brown hair, coiled in a bun.

FOR SOME LOW-INCOME WORKERS, RETIREMENT IS ONLY A DREAM / MARIA INES ZAMUDIO / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
It was a striking image. A photo of an 89-year-old man hunched over, struggling to push his cart with frozen treats. Fidencio Sanchez works long hours every day selling the treats because he couldn't afford to retire. The photo and his story went viral and thousands of people donated more than $384,000 for his retirement. His story is a window into a dark reality: Many low-wage workers say they can't afford to retire. With no money saved for retirement, home care worker Gwen Strowbridge, 71, of Deerfield, Florida, plans to stay on the job until she can't physically work anymore.

TEXAS LATINOS UNDERREPRESENTED IN LOCAL POLITICS / SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
A newspaper analysis has found deep patterns of underrepresentation of Texas' fast-growing Hispanic population on city councils and county commissioners courts across the state. The Austin American-Statesman (http://atxne.ws/2ewO5X7) reports that more than 1.3 million Hispanics in Texas live in cities or counties with no Hispanic representation on their city council or commissioners court. The disparities remain high even when accounting for noncitizens. It's an imbalance that's especially acute at the highest levels of local government.

FINANCE MINISTER’S KEY ADVISERS WANT 100M CANADIANS BY 2100 / ANDY BLATCHFORD / TORONTO STAR
Imagine Canada with a population of 100 million — roughly triple its current size. For two of the most prominent voices inside the Trudeau government’s influential council of economic advisers, it’s much more than a passing fancy. It’s a target. The 14-member council was assembled by Finance Minister Bill Morneau to provide “bold” advice on how best to guide Canada’s struggling economy out of its slow-growth rut.

France began clearing the sprawling “Jungle” migrant camp in Calais on Monday, with hundreds carrying suitcases queuing outside a hangar to be resettled in reception centres across the country.

EUROPE’S TRADITIONAL LEFT IS IN A DEATH SPIRAL. EVEN IF YOU DON’T LIKE THE LEFT, THIS IS A PROBLEM / SHERI BERMAN / THE WASHINGTON POST
Europe today is a mess. The strongest countries face lackluster economic growth, while the weakest, like Greece, are struggling to recover from depression-like downturns. Politically, things are even worse, as disillusionment with European and domestic institutions and elites is at record levels, and support for far-left and far-right parties is growing, creating political instability.

EVACÚAN MILES DE MIGRANTES Y REFUGIADOS DE 'LA JUNGLA' / EL UNIVERSAL
La “Jungle”, el campamento de migrantes y refugiados en el norte de Francia, comenzó su desmantelamiento en punto de las 6:00 GMT de este lunes con el inicio del traslado de seis mil 486 personas a otros 454 centros de acogida. Se trata de la operación de este tipo de mayor tamaño que se haya hecho en Francia, y al decir de las autoridades, indispensable ante las condiciones infrahumanas en que habitaban hasta esta mañana los migrantes. De ahi su nombre: “la jungla”.
