INICIATIVA DE LEY REVIVE ESPERANZA DE DREAMERS / EL DIARIO DE JUÁREZ
Los “soñadores” paseños recibieron con esperanza, pero a la vez con cautela, la presentación ayer de un proyecto de ley en el Congreso para legalizar su estatus migratorio en Estados Unidos. El Dream Act 2017, patrocinado por los senadores Lindsey Graham, republicano de Carolina del Sur, y Dick Durbin, demócrata de Illinois, permitiría a ciertos indocumentados obtener la residencia legal permanente si cumplen ciertos requisitos, y posteriormente ser elegibles para la ciudadanía estadounidense.

ATTORNEYS GENERAL URGE TRUMP TO KEEP IMMIGRANT PROGRAM / SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas on Friday joined 19 other Democratic attorneys general around the country urging President Donald Trump to keep a program that gives temporary resident status to young immigrants in the country irregularly. In a letter to the president, the attorneys general said the 800,000 immigrant students covered under the Obama-era Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrival Program, or DACA, have been a boon to universities and employers. "They are our neighbors, co-workers, students and community and church leader," the letter said. "And they are boosting the economies and communities or our states every day." The effort is being led by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra.

JUDGE REFUSES TO REINSTATE TRUMP SANCTUARY CITIES ORDER / LOS ANGELES TIMES
A federal judge in San Francisco on Thursday refused to reinstate President Donald Trump's executive order to cut funding from cities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. The U.S. Department of Justice had asked U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick to reverse his own injunction in April against Trump's executive order. The injunction was issued in response to lawsuits by San Francisco and Santa Clara County. Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote a memo in May saying the executive order should be applied narrowly to a small number of grants and to very specific violations of immigration law. The memo said cities that "willfully refuse to comply" with federal law could lose grants from the Justice and Homeland Security departments, but not other federal funding.

GLENDALE UNIFIED SPANISH TEACHERS FORGO PILOT PROCESS AND RECOMMEND THEIR PREFERRED LANGUAGE TEXTBOOK / PRISCELLA VEGA / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Spanish teachers in the Glendale Unified School District are forgoing a pilot process and are instead recommending school board members adopt their preferred Spanish-language textbook after school officials rejected purchasing that would replace “¡Qué chévere!”, a textbook series teachers and parents say reinforces negative stereotypes. The update was presented to the Glendale Unified school board Tuesday by Mary Mason, the director of teaching and learning for Glendale Unified. Mason said teachers unanimously agreed to have McGraw-Hill’s “Así se dice” as their Spanish-language textbook for the 2017-18 school year.

DURBIN, GRAHAM FILE DREAM ACT, HOPING TO WARD OFF LEGAL CHALLENGE TO DACA / MARIA SACCHETTI / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Hoping to fend off a legal challenge to a program that has spared nearly 800,000 young immigrants from deportation, two veteran senators made a long-shot appeal to President Donald Trump on Thursday to support legislation that would put those immigrants and thousands of others on a path to U.S. citizenship. Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., introduced "Dream Act" legislation that would grant permanent legal status to more than 1 million young people who arrived in the United States before they turned 18, passed security checks and met other criteria, including enrolling in college, joining the military or finding jobs. Immigrants must have lived in the United States for at least four years to apply.

CONNECTICUT GOVERNOR VISITS WOMAN TAKING SANCTUARY IN CHURCH / PAT EATON-ROBB / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
U.S. immigration officials said Friday they consider a woman trying to avoid deportation by seeking sanctuary in a Connecticut church to be a fugitive, but acknowledge they have a policy that restricts them from entering a house of worship except in extraordinary circumstances. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is among those showing support for Nury Chavarria, of Norwalk. The Democrat visited her Thursday night after she took refuge inside the Iglesia De Dios Pentecostal church in New Haven. Malloy said the attempt to deport the housekeeper and mother of four shows President Donald Trump's administration is not being truthful when it says its immigration policies are focused on "the bad guys."

EDITORIAL: DEPORTATION OF MOTHER HURTS MANY, HELPS NONE / SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
Life is cheap in Guatemala, a country inured to violence by 30 years of civil war that ended with a blanket amnesty leaving no one accountable for the deaths of 200,000 mostly unarmed civilians. This was the Guatemala 19-year-old Nury Chavarria fled in 1993, along with her father and brother. While they were granted asylum, however, Nury was not, for reasons that aren’t clear. She stayed here regardless, for reasons that are. Peacetime in Guatemala has proven a contradiction in terms. Fueled by a surfeit of weapons and a society accustomed to using them, the postwar violence has continued apace. Last year saw on average 101 murders a week. Virtually all have gone unpunished.

FEDERAL IMMIGRATION AGENTS ROUND UP 123 PEOPLE IN TEXAS / SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
Federal immigration agents in Texas say they've arrested 123 immigrants with criminal records or who were living in the country irregularly. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a statement Friday that the people were apprehended during an eight-day operation that ended Wednesday. Most of the immigrants were arrested in San Antonio or the South Texas cities of Harlingen and Laredo, and authorities say all had prior criminal convictions. Most came from Mexico but authorities say others were natives of Honduras, Guatemala and other countries. ICE periodically carries out large operations in which agents round up dozens of immigrants. For instance ICE announced in April that agents had arrested 153 immigrants in South Texas.

LATINOS LEFT OUT OF CLINICAL TRIALS AND POSSIBLE CURES / PAULA ANDALO / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Two decades ago, Luis Antonio Cabrera received devastating news: He likely had only three months to live. The Puerto Rican truck driver, then 50, had attributed his growing leg pain to spending so many hours on the road. The real culprit was a malignant tumor in his left kidney that was pressing on nerves from his lower spine. His initial treatment involved removing the organ, a complex surgery that, by itself, proved insufficient, as the cancerous cells had already spread to his lungs. Therefore, his primary care physician in Puerto Rico contacted doctors at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in Bethesda, Md., and managed to enroll Cabrera in a medical study to test an innovative therapy: transplanting blood stem cells to destroy the cancer cells.

AS CALIFORNIA’S LABOR SHORTAGE GROWS, FARMERS RACE TO REPLACE WORKERS WITH ROBOTS / GEOFFREY MOHAN / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Driscoll’s is so secretive about its robotic strawberry picker it won’t let photographers within telephoto range of it. But if you do get a peek, you won’t see anything humanoid or space-aged. AgroBot is still more John Deere than C-3PO — a boxy contraption moving in fits and starts, with its computer-driven sensors, graspers and cutters missing 1 in 3 berries. Such has been the progress of ag-tech in California, where despite the adoption of drones, iPhone apps and satellite-driven sensors, the hand and knife still harvest the bulk of more than 200 crops. Now, the $47-billion agriculture industry is trying to bring technological innovation up to warp speed before it runs out of low-wage immigrant workers.

SITOT ANNONCEE, LA CONSULTATION SUR LA DISCRIMINATION SYSTEMIQUE EST DEJA DECRIEE / MARIE-LISE ROUSSEAU / LE DEVOIR
Le gouvernement Couillard a finalement annoncé jeudi la tenue de consultations sur la discrimination systémique et le racisme, réclamées depuis plus d’un an, au courant de l’automne. Mais la forme que prendra ce processus ne fait pas que des heureux. Cette annonce du ministère de l’Immigration, de la Diversité et de l’Inclusion (MIDI) faite à Montréal survient alors que divers actes haineux contre la communauté musulmane du Québec se sont produits cette semaine, dans la foulée du référendum pour un projet de cimetière musulman tenu à Saint-Apollinaire dimanche. « Tous ces gestes haineux sont inacceptables dans une société. C’est blessant, ça me touche profondément.

IMMIGRATION BACKLOG KEEPS LIVE-IN CAREGIVERS FROM THEIR FAMILIES BACK HOME / NICHOLAS KEUNG / THE STAR
When Jocelyn Godroy left behind her three kids in the Philippines to work abroad as a live-in caregiver, they were 10, 7 and 3. After working in Hong Kong for four years, she arrived in Toronto in 2008 under Canada’s live-in caregiver program. Two years later, she applied for permanent residency to reunite with her family as soon as she met the live-in work requirement. Over the 13-year span working abroad, the former midwife has only managed to visit her children — now 23, 20 and 16 — three times because the money for trips is better spent on her kids’ education and basic needs. “I’m taking care of others’ children but can’t take care of my own kids, who are living by their own selves,” said Godroy, 43, whose marriage has broken down and whose mother — the care provider of her children — has passed away during her time away from home.
