IMMIGRANT YOUTH FACE NEW THREAT OF DEPORTATION / ANA RADELAT / THE CONNECTICUT MIRROW
Nearly 10,000 immigrant youth in Connecticut who were given provisional legal status under an Obama-era policy now fear an end to the program that shielded them from deportation. Ten state attorneys general, led by Ken Paxton of Texas, have asked the Trump administration to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that gave undocumented children brought to this country by their parents a chance for provisional legal status and a work permit. The 10 attorneys general – who successfully sued to stop the Obama administration from extending that program to the parents of children who are either American citizens or lawful permanent residents — are now threatening to sue to end the DACA program if it is not repealed by Sept. 5.

BAKER PROPOSES BILL TO TIGHTEN IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT / CLAIRE PARKER / THE BOSTON GLOBE
In response to a Supreme Judicial Court ruling on immigration last week, Governor Charlie Baker filed legislation Tuesday that would permit local law enforcement to detain certain unauthorized immigrants at the request of federal officials. According to the filing letter, the bill aims to close a “statutory gap” identified in Commonwealth v. Lunn, the SJC ruling that determined that Massachusetts law enforcement officers do not currently have the authority under state law to comply with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement detainer requests because doing so would amount to an illegal arrest.

Representatives from Texas’ business, local government and higher education sectors argued Tuesday that the state’s new immigration-enforcement law, which is slated to take effect Sept. 1, could do billions of dollars in damage to the Texas economy. Using data from the 2015 American Community Survey and the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the Reform Immigration for Texas Alliance — a group made up of 40 state-based immigrant and civil rights groups — estimated during a Tuesday press conference that the state stands to lose roughly $223 million in state and local taxes and more than $5 billion in gross domestic product under Senate Bill 4.

WHEN IMMIGRANT CHILDREN ARE UNDER SIEGE, SO IS THE FUTURE OF ELDERLY WHITE PEOPLE / TONYAA WEATHERSBEE / USA TODAY
Whenever talk turns to education, the conversation should be rooted in hope and not fear. But the opposite happened in Memphis recently. Because the Trump administration has unleashed U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Latino immigrants like a bloodhound, many are too frightened to register their children for the upcoming school year. They fear their children will be used to track them or others down – and subject them to deportation if they failed to get all their i’s dotted or their t’s crossed on their immigration forms, or for some long-ago infraction. Brian Stockton, chief of staff for Shelby County schools, tried to assuage immigrants’ fears.

SCS SCHOOL HELPS EASE LATINO FAMILIES' FEARS / WMC ACTION NEWS
One Shelby County School is hoping to lower anxiety and concerns for Latino students. Treadwell Elementary School is the only school in West Tennessee with a dual language program. The school, located in the Berclair area, has a Mexican consulate on hand as families register for classes. The consulate is an effort to help assure families who are worried about how the registration process may make the family a target for ongoing immigration raids in the area. "They should be reassured that they can come out without any interruption--as far as immigration requirements. So everything is fine and we have competent staff here that's going to communicate with them in Spanish, and so it's just going to be a great experience," Treadwell counselor Schevonda Hunt said.

AN ANTI-IMMIGRANT GROUP MISTOOK EMPTY BUS SEATS FOR WOMEN WEARING BURQAS / ADAM TAYLOR / THE WASHINGTON POST
Last week, a photograph that appeared to show six women wearing burqas on a bus sparked a heated debate in a private Facebook group for Norwegians critical of immigration. For many members of the group, which is called “Fedrelandet viktigst” or “Fatherland first,” the image encapsulated the problems Norway was facing after an influx of Muslim immigrants in the past few years. It also played into a continent-wide debate about Islamic dress across Europe. Norway's right-wing government recently proposed a law that would ban some forms of dress worn by Muslim women in schools and universities — the first Scandinavian country to do so.

REPEAT DEPORTEE'S ARREST SPARKS IMMIGRATION DEBATE / STATESMAN JOURNAL
A sheriff in Oregon and federal authorities are blaming each other for the case of a Mexican man who has been deported from the United States at least 13 times and who allegedly assaulted two women in Portland days after being released from jail. The case has helped fuel the national immigration debate. Republican state lawmakers are asking Gov. Kate Brown to veto a bill passed by the Legislature that would strengthen Oregon as a sanctuary state, barring state and local agencies from asking about a person's immigration status and from disclosing information to federal officials, except in certain circumstances. The bill was introduced at the request of Brown and Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum, a fellow Democrat.

2016 CENSUS REVEALS ANGLOPHONE POPULATION IN QUEBEC RISING DESPITE LANGUAGE LAWS / THE NATIONAL POST
The 2016 census reveals the percentage of Quebec anglophones has increased since 2011 despite the province’s language laws. Between 2011 and 2016 the percentage of Quebecers whose first official language spoken is English increased to 14.4 per cent from 13.5 per cent. The results are open to multiple interpretations because the data do not indicate if the rise was due to immigration, birthrates or other factors.

ONE IN FIVE GERMAN RESIDENTS ARE NOW FIRST OR SECOND GENERATION IMMIGRANTS / AAMNA MOHDIN / QUARTZ
Germany’s immigrant population has reached a new record high—again. In 2016, the number of people with migrant background in Germany—either first or second-generation immigrants—rose to a record 18.6 million, up 8.5% from the year before. It was the fifth year in a row that the number of residents with migrant backgrounds set a new high, according to official data released this week. In percentage terms, last year’s increase was the highest since records began in 2005. More than one in five people living in Germany (22.5%) are now first or second generation immigrants. The latest rise in this share was due to a record influx of refugees and migrants in 2015 and 2016.

CAN JAPAN SURVIVE WITHOUT IMMIGRANTS? / EMIKO JOZUKA AND JUNKO OGURA / CNN
Demolition worker Yuichi Aoki's face creases up when he thinks about Japan's future. "I got asked to resign from my job in the IT industry when I was 55," Aoki, 59, tells CNN as he takes a break from tearing down a derelict house in Saitama, Japan. "Now I have to work into my sixties. I worry about how my children and their children will cope with an increasingly ageing population." Considerably older than most of his co-workers, Aoki, a former IT worker is also one of only a handful of Japanese nationals employed by a Saitama-based demolition company owned by a Kurdish former asylum seeker. The company, the majority of whose workers hail from Turkey, Iran and various parts of Africa, is somewhat unique in Japan, where foreign nationals make up just 1.6% of the country's overall population.
