LATINAS FAMOSAS, EN CAMPAÑA CONTRA TRUMP / LA JORNADA ¿Qué tienen en común Salma Hayek, Eva Longoria, Jennifer López y Lila Downs? Estas cuatro artistas famosas, además de su origen latino, comparten ahora un mismo objetivo político: evitar que el 8 de noviembre gane en las urnas el republicano Donald Trump y se convierta en el nuevo presidente de Estados Unidos.

NEW MEXICO SETTLES LAWSUIT OVER IMMIGRANT TAX REFUNDS / SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS A New Mexico state senator says the Taxation and Revenue Department has agreed to halt a practice of automatically withholding income tax refunds from many foreign nationals without social security numbers who file income taxes under alternative tax identification numbers provided by the IRS. Sen. Gerald Ortiz y Pino said Friday he has co-signed a settlement agreement as a plaintiff that says state tax authorities will no longer withhold tax refunds based solely on discrepancies between a taxpayer's individual taxpayer identification number and any social security number on W-2 income forms.

EDUCATION GAP DIVIDES WHITE VOTERS / CHICAGO TRIBUNE a teenager, and it seemed he could have a pretty good life without a degree. Now, 40 years later his income is stalled as immigrants pour into western Kansas and depress wages. To Smith, Donald Trump seems like the only guy who can stop it. "He speaks what's on his mind, to hell with the political correctness," Smith said. "If Hillary gets in, there will be more illegals." Rachel Ong, 31, who has a master's degree in education, isn't convinced. She lives in the conservative and prosperous suburbs west of Kansas City and voted for Mitt Romney in 2012, but has concerns about Trump's style.

Though his future looks a bit brighter, little has changed for Marcos since a Los Angeles Times story and video was published July 15, sparking an outpouring of support from readers — from Sacramento to South Korea.

A JUDGE AGREED THIS ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT COULD STAY IN THE U.S. WHY IS HE BEHIND BARS? / RACHEL WEINER / THE WASHINGTON POST When Myron Haughton was picked up by authorities, he was an illegal immigrant with three felony convictions. Yet the Maryland resident last year convinced an immigration judge that he was a changed man, a husband and father who should be granted permanent residency, not be deported.

FIX THE IMMIGRATION RULE THAT KEEPS FAMILIES APART / OTTAWACITIZEN Immigration to Canada is not for the faint of heart. Some come here in search of a better life, leaving their family behind, with plans to reunite later on in Canada. Imagine finding out that after you have invested in and built a new home, you are barred from sponsoring a family member for the rest of your life because of a little-known regulation in Canada’s immigration system.

Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship John McCallum has appeared before it and pledged to make changes.

MAYOR OF ALBERTA TOWN FIGHTS RELOCATION OF IMMIGRATION PROCESSING CENTRE / TORONTO STAR
The mayor of an Alberta town says he will fight the relocation of the federal immigration and refugee processing centre that has been the community’s major employer since it opened in 1994. Vegreville Mayor Myron Hayduk says workers at the Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Case Processing Centre were told Thursday it will be relocated to Edmonton in 2018 when its lease expires. He says federal department officials didn’t inform him about this and he only learned about the meeting with workers via an anonymous call. Hayduk says the move and loss of more than 200 jobs will devastate the town of 6,000, as well as surrounding towns.
