MEXICANOS PODRÁN REGISTRARSE EN EL CONSULADO / MARLON GOMEZ / EL MUNDO NEWSPAPER
Si usted tiene un nombre que todo el mundo conoce pero no tiene un documento que compruebe su identidad, usted ‘no existe’. Quienes viven en esa situación no tienen nacionalidad alguna ni registro de nada. Esa es la historia para muchos mexicanos que fueron traídos a este país siendo menores de edad. Son cientos los casos de personas que no fueron registradas en México y que en este país viven sin estatus legal. No son de allá y tampoco son de aquí (…) Es importante destacar que cualquier persona en esta situación puede acudir a la sede del Consulado General de México en Austin para iniciar su trámite, sin necesidad de hacer una cita.

LOS MIGRANTES DEBEN ESTAR EN EL CENTRO DE LA RELACIÓN / EL ECONOMISTA
¿En la negociación del TLCAN tiene que incluirse el tema migratorio? Se tienen que hacer negociaciones integrales, es decir, tú tienes que poner en la misma mesa los temas económicos a la par que los migratorios y los de seguridad porque si los separas como tradicionalmente se ha hecho, no tienes cartas con que negociar. El gobierno mexicano debe colocar el tema de los migrantes en el centro de la relación binacional.

HOUSE APPROVES SPENDING BILL WITH $1.6 BILLION FOR THE BORDER WALL / DEIRDRE WALSH AND JEREMY HERB / CNN
The House voted Thursday to approve a spending bill with $1.6 billion to put toward a border wall along the US-Mexico border, part of a high-profile campaign pledge from President Donald Trump. Despite Trump's pledge to make Mexico pay for the wall, the bill earmarks taxpayer money to construct a carrier along the southwest border. To avoid having those Republicans who oppose the measure vote on it directly House Republican leaders tucked it into a procedural measure that set the debate plan for the so-called "minibus" funding bill for several federal agencies. The bill passed 235-192 mostly along party lines.

COALITION FIGHTING FOR ‘DREAMERS,’ IMMIGRATION REFORM / ARIZONA CAPITOL TIMES
Recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, instituted in 2012 under President Obama, have come under fire recently both at the state and national level. In late June, attorneys general from 10 states except Arizona threatened to sue the Trump administration over a program that grants deportation relief and access to work permits to nearly 800,000 U.S. Dreamers, undocumented immigrants brought to the country at a young age who have passed a comprehensive background check and met multiple criteria. Removal of Arizona’s more than 27,000 DACA recipients would lead to an annual gross domestic product loss of $1.3 billion.

HOW LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT LEADERS AND ANTI-IMMIGRATION GROUPS HAVE JOINED / JOSH SAUL / THE NEWSWEEK
While the Trump administration this year has demanded stricter enforcement of immigration laws by local law enforcement, some county sheriffs across the U.S. had already been establishing closer relationships with anti-immigration groups in recent years. Some of the national groups have been offering sheriffs advice, inviting them to “border schools” to hear anti-immigration speakers, producing television advertisements featuring sheriffs and sending at least one sheriff a model ordinance intended to spur local law enforcement of federal immigration laws.

COULD TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION AGENDA EVER GET THROUGH CONGRESS? / THE ATLANTIC
In late June, President Trump met with a dozen or so family members of Americans killed by undocumented immigrants as part of a push for two new laws targeting illegal immigration. “We’re calling on all members of Congress to honor grieving American families by passing these lifesaving measures in the House, in the Senate, and then sending them to my desk for a very rapid signature,” he said at the White House meeting, a day before the lower chamber approved both bills. “I promise you—it will be done quickly.” Immigration restrictionist groups aren’t so sure about that promise, though they share the president’s desire to curb entries into the United States and force undocumented immigrants out.

LIVING UNDER TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION CRACKDOWN PROVES EXPENSIVE FOR UNDOCUMENTED FAMILIES / HANNAH KNOWLES / SACRAMENTO BEE
Antonio is a frugal spender these days. No new computer. No more trips. A music lover, he used to buy lots of CDs, but he has stopped. The Sacramento resident’s kitchen, stocked up before with cookies and Doritos, now holds only what he, his wife and his daughters need for the week. Since Donald Trump became president, the family has been saving for something he said he hopes never comes to pass: detention and possible deportation for immigrating to the country illegally. “If we don’t need it, we don’t buy it,” said Antonio, who, like all of the immigrants The Bee interviewed for this story, asked to remain anonymous or be identified only by first name because of his and his family members’ immigration status.

IMMIGRANT DETAINEES SAY THEY ARE NOT GETTING MEDICAL TREATMENT THEY NEED / MONSY ALVARADO / NORTH JERSEY
Gerardo Perdomo was supposed to have a biopsy in December after several blood tests indicated he could have prostate cancer. But the night before he was scheduled for the procedure, he was taken into custody by immigration officials at his Bronx home, and he has been detained ever since at the Hudson County Correctional Facility in Kearny on immigration violations. More than seven months later, Perdomo still hasn’t had that biopsy. The pain in his testicles, he said, has gotten worse. “It would be terrible if I have cancer and I'm not getting treatment,’’ Perdomo, a 59-year-old grandfather of 12, said in a recent telephone interview from the jail. Perdomo and his attorney said they have both repeatedly requested the biopsy.

UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT BAILED OUT OF ICE / KELSEY BRUGGER / INDEPENDIENT
An immigration judge at Adelanto Detention Center recently granted $7,500 bail for an undocumented Santa Barbara landscaper who was picked up by ICE agents two months ago after spending the night in County Jail. Charges, it turned out, were never filed, and he had no priors. Nevertheless, the Sheriff’s Office notified ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) of the time they would release him from jail. ICE agents waited for him at the entrance and transported him to Adelanto. The case is just one example of toughened immigration enforcement under President Donald Trump. According to Trump’s immigration priorities, the Department of Homeland Security “will not exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement.”

AHEAD OF VISIT TO LONG ISLAND, TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ROUNDS UP IMMIGRANT TEENAGERS / THINK PROGRESS
The Trump administration will engage in “preventive enforcement” to detain and deport Central American immigrants suspected of gang involvement, a senior White House administration official told reporters Thursday evening. The press call took place ahead of a presidential visit to New York to discuss ways to combat the well-organized and major street gang MS-13, which has extensive networks in El Salvador and the United States. “If you are a gang member, you are a priority for removal. You’re gone,” the senior official who spoke on background said on a press call. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a gang member, or everyone knows you’re part of the gang… this means ICE can be engaged in preventive enforcement. [ICE officials] want to engage in behavior where [a victim] will never have to die in the first place.”

MY CANADIAN IMMIGRANT STORY: THE FOREIGN CREDENTIALS STRUGGLE / BBC NEWS
Ramanuj Basu arrived in Canada in 2013, excited to begin a master's degree in international business law. At 29 years old, he had already studied law at the University of London, and had gained practical experience at a Delhi corporate law firm as a senior associate. But Basu and his wife Veronika decided they wanted to try another country and chose Canada for the "quality of life". "We looked to it with excitement," he says, even though they were leaving behind family and friends. "You're making the move with great expectations." They knew there would be some sacrifice. Veronika worked two jobs to support the couple as Basu completed his degree at Toronto's York University. Basu left behind his parents and sister in Delhi.

TRUMP’S DANGEROUS SCAPEGOATING OF IMMIGRANTS / GRACE MENG / HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH
At a “Make America Great Again” rally on Tuesday, US President Donald Trump revived his anti-immigrant campaign rhetoric, conjuring up lurid imagery of illegal immigrant gang members who he described as “animals” who will “take a young, beautiful girl” and “slice…and dice them.” He went on to trumpet that his administration is “cracking down hard on the foreign criminal gangs that have brought illegal drugs, violence, horrible bloodshed to peaceful neighborhoods all across our country.” Trump isn’t just condemning gang violence. His words are part of a larger rhetoric that scapegoats immigrants as outsiders responsible for violent crime and deep societal problems.

EBONI WILLIAMS: SANCTUARY CITIES ENDANGER THE IMMIGRANT COMMUNITY / FOX NEWS
Eboni Williams laid out her case against illegal immigration in "Eboni's Docket" on "The Fox News Specialists." Williams said that few issues are as controversial as irregular immigration, but that action must be taken now. "I submit to you that Donald J. Trump rose to the presidency on [the issue's] intensity," she said. Williams said the latest tragedy involving the deaths of ten irregulars in the back of a sweltering big rig in Texas illustrates why the practice of irregular border crossings must be dealt with. She said that the government can no longer "kick the can down the road on real policy solutions around immigration reform."

ADAM PUTNAM DOWNPLAYS PAST IMMIGRATION POLICIES / ALEXANDRA GLORIOSO / NAPLES NEWS
Under fire for being weak on immigration, Republican frontrunner for governor Adam Putnam downplayed his support for legislation he once co-sponsored that would have allowed undocumented immigrants to work in the United States and receive a pathway to legal residency. Putnam, the state’s agriculture commissioner, was adamant: A pathway to residency is not a pathway to citizenship. “Citizenship has never been something that I have supported,” said Putnam, of Bartow. “Citizenship is amnesty. And I’ve never supported amnesty.”
