VOTO ELECTRÓNICO EN 2018, SI EL SISTEMA ES SEGURO / CARINA GARCÍA / EL UNIVERSAL
La eventual aplicación de un mecanismo de voto por internet es segura, podría abaratar en parte el costo de las elecciones y garantizar a millones de connacionales que viven en el extranjero el derecho a elegir presidente, senadores o gobernadores, (...) En cambio, la modalidad de urna electrónica obligaría a los connacionales a desplazarse hacia los consulados. Sólo en Estados Unidos hay 50 consulados, pero más de 22 millones de posibles votantes y las previsiones para garantizar que todos pudieran votar serían enormes.

CLINTON'S IMMIGRATION PLAN COULD HELP ECONOMY MORE THAN TRUMP'S, MOST ECONOMISTS SAY / DON LEE / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Forget about tax plans and spending programs, trade deals and regulatory reform. When it comes to influencing the speed and direction of the economy, few things will matter more than how the next president deals with the millions of immigrants in the country illegally, and just as crucially, how many new legal immigrants are allowed in each year. “In terms of where the economy would be four years and 10 years from now, the real difference, the game changer between the two [presidential candidates] is immigration,”

ELECTION EXPOSES GENERATIONAL DIVIDE AMONG HISPANICS / NICHOLAS RICCARDI / SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
Donald Trump's rhetoric on immigration is testing a long-term trend among Hispanics: Members of a family that has been in the country for multiple generations and uses primarily English are more likely to vote Republican than those who more recently arrived in the United States. The number of Latinos in the United States is growing, making them a key demographic group whose votes are coveted by both major parties. While traditionally they vote for Democrats, that support isn't ironclad.

POLICY PRESCRIPTIONS: TRUMP AND CLINTON ON IMMIGRATION / STEVE PEOPLES / SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
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."

COMPETING VIEWS ON HOW TO REGULATE ILLEGAL MIGRATION / EDUARDO PORTER / THE NEW YORK TIMES
The Bracero Program, which drew hundreds of thousands of Mexican laborers to toil in American fields from 1942 to 1964, left a searing memory of injustice. The program has been blamed for depressing farm wages and abusing immigrant workers. So I wasn’t surprised that some critics took a dim view of the proposal I wrote about in last week’s column, which suggests that an improved version of the Bracero Program might help manage immigration by low-skilled workers into the United States and curtail illegal immigration.

BRIDGEPORT RESTAURANT COMBINES PIZZA, MEXICAN FOOD / TARA O’NEILL / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Rolando Cruz and his wife wanted to give the people of Bridgeport a little taste of Oaxaca, Mexico, while giving them the option to get pizza at the same time. This clash of cultures became a reality several weeks ago when Cruz and his wife opened Oaxaca Pizzeria & Taqueria. Cruz came to America from Mexico in 1990 in search of a better future. He met his wife and they had three children while he worked in the Bridgeport area for years, in diners and pizzerias.

RAIN LIMITS CROWD AT OAKLAND’S DIA DE LOS MUERTOS FESTIVAL / ESTHER MOBLEY / SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
The Unity Council Dia de los Muertos Festival got off to a wet start Sunday morning as heavy rain poured over Fruitvale Village in Oakland. Weather probably kept many would-be attendees home. The festival, now in its 21st year, has drawn as many as 100,000 visitors in past years, but “this year, I’d be happy with 30,000,” said Dana Kleinhesselink, Unity Council’s senior manager of fund development and communications.

MATTHEW FISHER: AT A SOUTHERN RALLY, DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTERS PREDICT A ‘LANDSLIDE’ — ‘GOD WANTS THIS’ / MATTHEW FISHER / THE NATIONAL POST The most remarkable thing about Donald Trump’s rally in this faded southern U.S. city was that although the local population is two-thirds black, it appeared that nearly everyone in the crowd of perhaps 5,000 was white. One exception was a young African-American heckler. The moment he interrupted Trump, the Republican candidate for the presidency pointed him out from the dais. To loud applause, the Secret Service immediately hustled the protester out of the Kinston Jetport.

FRENCH PRESIDENT VOWS TO CLEAR PARIS STREETS OF MIGRANT CAMP / SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
French President Francois Hollande vowed Saturday to shut down a bulging migrant camp in Paris, after his government moved 5,000 people from a camp in northern France in an overdue effort to tackle the migrant crisis. The makeshift camps in Calais on the English Channel and in the French capital have become visible symbols of the country's struggle to accommodate migrants and refugees seeking better lives in Europe. Hollande also urged Britain to do more to help underage migrants in Calais, a port city that has long been a magnet for desperate travelers from the Mideast and Africa seeking to reach British shores.
