"GRAVAR REMESAS SERÍA UN CRIMEN HUMANITARIO": ISABEL CRUZ / ALFREDO VALADEZ RODRÍGUEZ / JORNADA
La amenaza de Donald Trump, presidente de los Estados Unidos, de gravar con un impuesto las remesas que los paisanos envían a sus familias en México, “sería un crimen humanitario, porque ya los migrantes pagaron sus impuestos allá, a través de las retenciones que hacen sus patrones” dijo Isabel Cruz Hernández, Directora General de la Asociación Mexicana de Uniones de Crédito del Sector Social en entrevista con La Jornada. Cruz Hernández opinó que si Trump grava las remesas, también debería gravar las transacciones que se realizan en la bolsa de valores de ese país.

TRUMP WANTS TO EMULATE CANADA’S IMMIGRATION SYSTEM. HERE’S WHY IT WON’T WORK / TRACY JAN / THE WASHINGTON POST
The Trump administration hailed Canada and Australia as models when the president endorsed legislation to curb legal immigration by instituting a points-based system that rewards high-skilled English speakers. But copying those countries won’t work, according to a new paper from the National Immigration Forum and the National Foundation for American Policy. There are vast differences between their immigration systems and what Trump is advocating. “The point of the point system in those countries is to attract more immigration, not reduce it,” said Stuart Anderson, executive director of the National Foundation for American Policy who authored the paper.

UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT WHO ID’D KILLERS IN BROOKLYN MURDER CASES TO BE RELEASED DESPITE OPPOSITION FROM FEDS / JAMES FANELLI / THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
The undocumented immigrant arrested by the feds despite his brave testimony in two Brooklyn homicide cases is expected to be released from detention. An immigration judge on Thursday set bond at $20,000 for William Siguencia Hurtado after commending him for helping the Brooklyn district attorney’s office bring five killers to justice. He is expected to make bond on Friday. “It’s amazing news,” Siguencia Hurtado’s lawyer, Karen De La Cruz, told the Daily News. De La Cruz said that last week, she provided the judge, Lauren Farber, a letter from the Brooklyn DA urging his release — and a copy of the Daily News story about her client’s courageous work assisting prosecutors.

FEDS OFFERING POSSIBLE CHANGE IN VISA STATUS TO PERSUADE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO TURN ON MS-13 / JOSEPH J. KOLB / FOX NEWS
Critics of the sanctuary city crackdown say it will chill immigrants from helping ICE go after MS-13 gang members, but the feds say they have plenty of tools – including a change in visa status - to win cooperation from the immigrant community. The options seem to be paying off, with investigators from ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations saying immigrant cooperation is making a big difference in the fight against the lethal and ruthless MS-13 gang. In an atmosphere where cooperating with law enforcement is a death sentence imposed by the gang, most illegal immigrants appear to be more concerned about how to obtain legal resident status than financial reward, said one investigator who declined to be identified.

FARMS ADJUSTING TO LIFE WITHOUT IMMIGRANT LABOR: REPORT / STEPHEN DINAN / THE WASHINGTON POST
Farmers addicted to cheap illegal immigrant labor are facing disruptions, but not devastation, as they adjust to world with fewer unauthorized workers, according to a new report Thursday. The Migration Policy Institute found that farms are plugging gaps by using machines, enticing workers to stay by offering health care — and are even tapping legal guest workers to fill empty jobs. Its analysis said warnings from immigrant-rights advocates of food shortages have not generally come to pass. The agriculture industry, it says, has seen an upheaval as farmers shift strategies to try to deal with the evolving labor force.

TRUMP IS DEPORTING FEWER IMMIGRANTS THAN OBAMA, INCLUDING CRIMINALS / MARIA SACCHETTI / THE WASHINGTON POST
President Trump has vowed to swiftly deport “bad hombres” from the United States, but the latest deportation statistics show that slightly fewer criminals were expelled in June than when he took office. In January, federal immigration officials deported 9,913 criminals. After a slight uptick under Trump, expulsions sank to 9,600 criminals in June. Mostly deportations have remained lower than in past years under the Obama administration. From January to June, Immigration and Customs Enforcement deported 61,370 criminals, down from 70,603 during the same period last year. During the election, Trump vowed to target criminals for deportation and warned that they were “going out fast.” Later, he suggested he would try to find a solution for the “terrific people” who never committed any crimes, and would first deport 2 million to 3 million criminals.

IMMIGRATION APPEALS COURT THROWS OUT DEPORTATION ORDER FOR MAN DETAINED BY ICE AFTER DROPPING DAUGHTER OFF AT SCHOOL / ANDREA CASTILLO / LOS ANGELES TIMES
An immigration appeals court this week threw out the final deportation order for Romulo Avelica-Gonzalez, who was detained in late February minutes after he dropped his daughter off at school in Lincoln Heights. His lawyer said the case will be kicked back to the local immigration court that initially ordered that he be deported. That means Avelica-Gonzalez, 49, is still in deportation proceedings, but it could take years for a judge to enter a new decision. An official with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the agency can no longer comment on Avelica-Gonzalez’s case because of his pending U visa application.

NEW GOP IMMIGRATION BILL WOULD DRASTICALLY INCREASE BORDER SURVEILLANCE: REPORT / BRANDON CARTER / THE HILL
A new immigration bill sponsored by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) would dramatically ramp up surveillance along the U.S.-Mexico border and could increase the use of biometric data and drones. The bill, which was released last week and is currently posted on Cornyn’s website, contains several provisions that would change current border security policy. The bill would implement a “biometric exit data system” at the 15 busiest international airports in America which would “match biometric information for an alien who is departing the United States against the biometric information obtained for the alien upon entry to the United States.” It also calls for unmanned drones to be used to surveil the border for a minimum of 24 hours a day, five days a week as part of its aim to conduct “continuous surveillance.”

TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS IMMIGRATION STATISTIC / RAMESH PONNURU / BLOOMBERG
A new study says that halving legal immigration, as President Donald Trump and Republican Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue want to do, will have a negative effect on the size of the economy and the labor force. A lot of journalists are citing the study, with some of them noting that it is associated with the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, which Trump attended. The business school has more claims to distinction than that. But this study does not really tell us anything important about immigration policy. That’s not meant as a criticism of the people who produced it so much as it is a caution about interpreting it. The economy, according to the Penn Wharton Budget Model, will be 2 percent smaller in 2040 if the bill passes than if it doesn't. Also by 2040, the country will have 4.6 million fewer jobs.

A QUEST TO FIND THE BEST MEXICAN CHORIZO IN CHICAGO / NICK KINDELSPERGER / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
We all know the best way to eat a hot dog. We may disagree about toppings and condiments, but every American knows that hot dogs belong in hot dog buns. This is a fact even though marketers in the '60s and '70s attempted to confuse the public by photographing hot dogs in strange and uncomfortable situations. Ever seen the horror of a crown roast of frankfurters or a frankaroni loaf? Warning: these are images you can't unsee. This is not the case with other sausages, which can adapt to dozens of different recipes without compromising their integrity. My favorite is Mexican chorizo, a red chili-tinged, vinegar-spiked pork sausage accented with spices like cumin, oregano and cinnamon.

IMMIGRATION: PAS DE SIGNES DE RALENTISSEMENT A LA FRONTIERE / JOURNAL DE MONTREAL
Après une autre nuit occupée, les membres des Forces armées canadiennes (FAC) ont poursuivi l’installation de tentes pour loger les migrants. Les soldats semblaient heureux de remplir ce rôle essentiel et d’aider les gens qui ont traversé la frontière. «C’est sûr que c’est enrichissant. Nous avons tous rejoint les Forces pour aider le peuple, peu importe d’où les gens proviennent», a dit l’une d’entre eux. Depuis mercredi, une vingtaine de tentes ont été montées. Les militaires avaient pour objectif d’en ouvrir 32 d’ici la fin de la journée, équipées de lits et de planchers temporaires. Ces tentes, éclairées et chauffées, peuvent loger jusqu’à 16 personnes.

DECLIN DU FRANÇAIS: LISEE VEUT UNE LOI 202 / LA PRESSE
Inquiet des résultats du dernier recensement qui démontrent un déclin du français au Québec, le chef péquiste Jean-François Lisée propose d'adopter une loi 202 dans les 101 premiers jours d'un éventuel gouvernement du Parti québécois. Au cours d'une rencontre avec la presse, jeudi à Montréal, le chef de l'opposition officielle à l'Assemblée nationale a élaboré quelques-unes des pistes de solution qu'il propose pour freiner cette chute du fait français, notamment pour pouvoir travailler en français. Il propose entre autres d'exiger que les candidats à l'immigration connaissent le français avant d'immigrer au Québec - cela exclut toutefois les réfugiés.

REFUGEE RESCUE BOAT SENT TO HELP FAR-RIGHT ANTI-IMMIGRANT SHIP STRANDED IN MEDITERRANEAN WITH MECHANICAL FAILURE / LIZZIE DEARDEN / INDEPENDENT
Volunteers on a German refugee rescue ship say they have been deployed to help a far-right vessel that has become stranded in the Central Mediterranean. Sea-Eye said Italian officials had told their crew that the C-Star, operated by an anti-immigration group calling itself Defend Europe, had suffered a mechanical failure and could not manoeuvre. A spokesperson for the group, which is among those Defend Europe has accused of “colluding” with Libyan people smugglers, said it was on its way to offer aid. Michael Buschheuer, the chairman of Sea-Eye, said: “To help a ship in distress in the duty of anyone at sea, without regard for their origin, race, religion or beliefs.”
