HICE UN FAVOR A MÉXICO EN MIGRACIÓN: DONALD / EL DIARIO DE JUÁREZ
El presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, dijo hoy haber hecho un favor a México con su dura política contra la migración. Esto, al afirmar, sin sustento, que los cruces irregulares a territorio mexicano desde Guatemala y Belice ya son muy pocos. Sin que los datos oficiales del gobierno mexicano sustenten su afirmación, Trump aseguró que su dura política migratoria había beneficiado a México como un efecto de inhibición. "De hecho en la frontera sur de México ¡les hicimos un favor, créanme!", dijo Trump hoy en un discurso sobre los peligros de las pandillas centroamericanas desde Long Island, Nueva York.

A new collaborative office space for Portland-area immigrants is scheduled to open for business Monday at 24 Preble St. in Portland.

The center is the brainchild of Alain Nahimana, an immigrant from Burundi, and Damas Rugaba, an immigrant from Rwanda, who came up with the concept three years ago.

ACTIVISTS DECRY LATEST ATTEMPT TO FORCE OUT THE DREAMERS / STEPHEN DINAN / THE WASHINGTON TIMES
Immigrant rights advocates are urging a federal judge to close out a court case before Texas can use it to nix the Obama-era amnesty that’s currently protecting nearly 800,000 irregular immigrant Dreamers. While the Trump administration is still trying to decide what to do about the Obama amnesty, known in Washington as DACA, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund has taken up the case. MALDEF told Judge Andrew S. Hanen that even though he has ruled against a broader amnesty, implemented by President Obama in 2014 and known as DAPA, he cannot now expand the case to include the original DACA amnesty, created in 2012.

DELAWARE COUNTY SETTLES LAWSUIT OVER MEXICAN IMMIGRANT LEFT BY DEPUTIES, KILLED ON INTERSTATE / DEAN NARCISO / THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
Five years ago, two Delaware County sheriff’s deputies decided to give a suspected drunken driver a break. But it was a favor clouded by contempt, ethnic slurs and unprofessionalism. Rather than test Uriel Juarez-Popoca for sobriety, arrest him or wait for someone to pick him up, deputies Derek Beggs and Christopher Hughes dropped him off at a Taco Bell. They did this, in part, because they didn’t see him driving the Ford F-150 pickup that had plowed into a cable barrier in the median of Interstate 71 on July 28, 2012. And Popoca, from Mexico, spoke little English. The deputies decided not to call in an interpreter for Popoca, 22, who was disoriented and confused.

IMMIGRANT MILITARY RECRUITS WAIT IN LIMBO AS DEFENSE PROGRAM’S FUTURE UNCLEAR / AGNES CONSTANTE / NBC NEWS
Min Zhao saw the Army as an exciting opportunity when she decided to change her career and leave marketing in 2016. In March of that year, she signed an enlistment contract as a combat medic and was scheduled to begin basic training six months later. But more than a year since she signed her agreement, Zhao, now 27, hasn’t shipped out. A native of China and a speaker of Mandarin, Zhao joined the U.S. Army through the Military Accessions Vital to National Interest (MAVNI) program, which allows the military to enlist noncitizens with skills such as medicine or the ability to speak in-demand languages like Mandarin. The program also offers the recruits an expedited pathway to citizenship.

MIGRANTS IN SURGE FARE WORSE IN IMMIGRATION COURT THAN OTHER GROUPS / JULIA PRESTON / THE WASHINGTON POST
Toward the end of a recent morning hearing in immigration court, Judge V. Stuart Couch looked out from his bench on a nearly empty chamber. On one side sat the prosecutor. But at the table for the immigrants, the chairs were vacant. From a stack of case files, Couch called out names of asylum seekers: Dina Marciela Baires from El Salvador and her three children. No answer. Lesley Carolina Cardoza from Honduras and her young daughter. Silence. After identifying 17 people who had failed to appear for their hearings, the judge ordered all of them to be deported. The scene is replaying across the country as immigration courts resolve the asylum cases of families who streamed across the Southwest border since 2014.

Late last week, immigrants rights activists in Los Angeles were preparing to assist undocumented youth who may have been caught up in recent federal raids that could have included teens.

IDAHO JAIL EYED AS FEDERAL SITE FOR IMMIGRATION DETAINEES / US NEWS
The Jerome County Jail in south-central Idaho would be an ideal location to house immigration detainees and could eventually be used for immigration hearings, federal officials said. In a document obtained through a public records request, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say the site could be expanded to take in more inmates, The Times-News reported (http://bit.ly/2uOGNqe) Sunday. Federal officials are looking for a new location because of the loss last year of access to 300 beds at the Utah County Jail in Spanish Fork, Utah. Using the Jerome County Jail could bring up to $1.37 million a year to the county, the document notes. But county commissioners say nothing will happen until Immigration and Customs Enforcement brings them a potential contract. Commissioner Cathy Roemer said the sheriff's office is negotiating with federal authorities.

IMMIGRATION RAIDS STOKE CONCERNS UPSTATE / JOE MAHONEY / LOCKPORT UNION-SUN JOURNAL
In this gritty town on the banks of the upper Hudson River, a Polish immigrant is trying to change the hearts and minds of his neighbors who object to the presence of undocumented workers from Mexico. The effort is being made by the Rev. Thomas Babiuch, a Roman Catholic priest who is the pastor at St. Joseph's Church in this Washington County town of 3,300 people. According to U.S. Census Bureau data, about 15 percent of them are living in poverty. Shaken by recent raids in Fort Edward and nearby Hudson Falls by federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, members of a dozen Mexican families have stopped coming to Sunday services at St. Joseph's, said Babiuch, who has been assigned to the church for 11 years.

SOMALI IMMIGRANT IN LIMBO OVER US PASSPORT RENEWAL DESPITE CITIZENSHIP / EARL RINEHART / THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
Osman Hassan was happy beyond belief when he took the citizenship oath on March 17, 2013, in Minneapolis. Months later, he obtained the blue passport booklet embossed in gold that signifies to everyone everywhere he travels that he is an American. “I was so proud of traveling out of the country,” said Hassan, a Somali native and 2007 graduate of Ohio State University. The passport enabled him to take a job as an English-language teacher in Saudi Arabia in July 2014 making $6,500 a month. “Life was good,” said Hassan, 49, who had seen “ugly things” during the fighting in his homeland and life in a refugee camp in Kenya. Now he could pay the medical school tuition for a son and daughter, send money to his mother and provide himself a decent living.

CHILDREN’S BOOKS MISSED THESE IMMIGRANT STORIES. SO STUDENTS WROTE THEM / DAVID GONZALEZ / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Greatness surrounds Melissa Cabrera when she attends classes at Bronx Community College. That should not be surprising, because the campus is home to the Hall of Fame for Great Americans, where busts of scientists, scholars and statesmen, among others, line a grand colonnade that wraps around Gould Memorial Library, an architectural treasure designed by Stanford White. Classical tributes are fine, but the greatness of which Ms. Cabrera speaks was found sitting alongside her in a children’s literature class she took at night, when her fellow students came straight from work, still dressed in the uniforms of nurses, fast-food workers or security guards. A few brought their children, because money for child care was scarce.

CANADA’S REAL STRENGTH? IT’S NOT DIVERSITY/ CATHERINE LITTLE/ THE GLOBE AND MAIL
Catherine Little is a Toronto-based educator, consultant and writer. It’s wonderful that Canada’s population is made up of a diverse mix of people who mostly get along and that everyone is encouraged to be proud of their heritages. However, missing in the discussion on diversity is the idea that many have come to Canada hoping to create a life based on their own choices – and not merely replicate all of the cultural traditions that would have been most likely had they stayed in their countries of birth. Growing up, I would often sit quietly and listen to the adult conversations. I remember one particular day when my parents and their guests were discussing some aspect of protocol.

REGION CHALEUR : L'IMMIGRATION FRANCOPHONE EN HAUSSE / RADIO CANADA
Les grands centres urbains des Maritimes comme Moncton et Halifax ne sont pas seuls à bénéficier d’une forte immigration. Des milliers de visiteurs tombent en amour avec la qualité de vie des régions comme celle de Bathurst et décident de s’y installer. C’est le cas du Français Christophe Couverchel et de sa famille établie depuis deux ans à Bathurst. « J’ai tendance à dire aux gens qu’ici on retrouve l’humanité. Les gens sont souriants, curieux et simple ici. On retrouve le bon côté de l’humain. On ne risque pas de se faire battre si on regarde quelqu’un dans les yeux », explique M. Couverchel.

BRITAIN DOESN’T NEED TO ‘TAKE BACK CONTROL’ OF IMMIGRATION. WE ALREADY HAVE IT / KARAN BILIMORIA / THE GUARDIAN
Concern over immigration was one of the most important factors for those who voted for Brexit, yet we already have the power to take back control of the free movement of EU citizens to the UK – we just aren’t using it. Both major political parties’ front benches, and even cabinet members, are divided when it comes to whether Britain should remain in the single market, which entails allowing free movement of people within the EU. But the reality of immigration in Britain today is a far cry from the public’s perception. We lost control over our borders almost two decades ago. In 1998, Tony Blair removed exit checks. Nobody checks your passport once you have gone through security at an airport, as they do in virtually every other country in the world.
