DREAMERS SE MOVILIZARÁN ESTE MARTES PARA PEDIR LA PROTECCIÓN DE DACA EN EL QUINTO ANIVERSARIO DE SU PUESTA EN VIGOR / JORGE CANCINO / UNIVISION
Como cada año desde que fue implementado el 15 de agosto de 2012, cientos de jóvenes indocumentados que entraron a Estados Unidos siendo jóvenes y se les conoce como 'dreamers' saldrán a las calles para agradecer un beneficio que detiene temporalmente sus deportaciones. Pero en este quinto aniversario, a parte de los discursos de gratitud, habrá un clamo para pedir al presidente Donald Trump que proteja la Acción Diferida que aprobó el presidente Barack Obama y que pende de un hilo.

ONU BUSCA SUSPENDER DETENCIONES DE MIGRANTES EN EU / MILENIO
Un panel sobre derechos humanos de la ONU llamó a Estados Unidos a poner fin a la detención de migrantes irregulares incluyendo a quienes buscan asilo, argumentando que la práctica "ha aumentado exponencialmente" y que viola el derecho internacional. La detención de migrantes y aspirantes a refugio es "punitiva, irracionalmente larga, innecesaria y costosa" y debería ser utilizada sólo como último recurso, dijo el grupo en un informe de 23 páginas enviado al Consejo de Derechos Humanos de la ONU.

'POSIBLE MEJORAR TEMAS LABORAL, SALARIAL Y MIGRACIÓN CON TLCAN' / EXCELSIOR
Con la renegociación en puerta del Tratado de Libre Comercio para América del Norte (TLCAN), México está ante la posibilidad de hacer ajustes en temas como el laboral, salarial y la migración, consideró la perredista Dolores Padierna Luna. La coordinadora del Partido de la Revolución Democrática (PRD) en el Senado de la República, dijo que lo que la anima en la renegociación son los temas de empleo, salarios y migrantes, "porque son tres temas que cuando se formalizó el TLCAN en 1993 ya se tenía formalizado un acuerdo de libre circulación de mano de obra y el libre tránsito de mercancías”.

10 EMPRESAS MEXICANAS EXPUESTAS CON LA RENEGOCIACIÓN DEL TLCAN / AXEL SÁNCHEZ / EL FINANCIERO
Mañana inicia la primera ronda de la renegociación del Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN), del que dependerá el futuro de las exportaciones que realizan muchas empresas mexicanas a Estados Unidos. Aunque algunas firmas no están expuestas a la aplicación de aranceles -ante posibles cambios al Tratado- al fabricar productos en ese país, otras que cotizan en la Bolsa Mexicana de Valores (BMV) corren el riesgo al enviar sus mercancías de México a la Unión Americana.

AS LA STUDENTS HEAD BACK TO SCHOOL, LAUSD HAS MESSAGE FOR IMMIGRANTS: ‘WE STAND TOGETHER’ / ANTONIE BOESSENKOOL / LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS
The Los Angeles Unified School District is making visible what it’s so far said in words: that immigrant students and their families are welcome at Los Angeles schools. When students start the new school year today, they’ll walk through entrances decked with 6-foot-tall banners featuring the Statue of Liberty, long the symbol of new opportunity for immigrants. The banners will read “We Are One L.A. Unified/Standing With Immigrant Families,” and Lady Liberty will be wearing a graduation cap, a nod to the district’s goal of having every student graduate. Superintendent Michelle King previewed the We Are One effort for “immigrant students and others who feel marginalized,” with a brief mention in her annual State of the District speech last week.

CALUMET CITY PASSES WELCOMING CITY ORDINANCE STRENGTHENING IMMIGRANT PROTECTIONS / ZAK KOESKE / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Calumet City last week became the latest Cook County suburb to pass a welcoming city ordinance, strengthening protections for immigrant residents in an effort to promote community cooperation with police and alleviate fears of detainment and deportation that have heightened under President Donald Trump's administration. City council members voted unanimously Thursday to declare Calumet City "a fair and equal city for immigrants," giving "more teeth" to a sanctuary city resolution that's been on the books since 2009. "A resolution is just a policy, an ordinance is a statement of law. I think for a lot of the residents, the resolution wasn't strong enough because there's no enforcement mechanism," Alderman DeAndre Tillman (3rd Ward) said following the vote.

IMMIGRATION REFORM PLAN CRUSHES AMERICAN DREAM / JANET WILLIAMS / DAILY JOURNAL
I wonder what Stephen Miller and Donald Trump would have to say about my grandmother and her rag-tag immigrant family. Miller, a senior White House advisor, and Trump support a sweeping immigration reform plan that would slash the overall number of immigrants while welcoming those with money, skills and English-language proficiency. In other words, we welcome the best and brightest and to hell with the huddled masses. That would have included my grandmother and her family. My grandmother’s story is like so many others. She arrived in the United States from Germany with her oldest sister not long after the turn of the last century. She joined her father, mother and younger brothers in a thriving immigrant community amid the coal mines and steel mills of Johnstown in Cambria County, Pennsylvania.

AHEAD OF NAFTA TALKS, A MAJOR HISPANIC BUSINESS LEADER SAYS DON'T RIP UP THE DEAL / BERKELEY LOVELACE JR. / CNBC
President Donald Trump must "level the playing field" on new NAFTA negotiations, the head of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce told CNBC on Tuesday. "We don't believe, we never have, that NAFTA should be torn up and thrown out. That makes no sense whatsoever," Javier Palomarez said on "Squawk Box." Palomarez, a Democrat, spoke a day before the U.S., Canada and Mexico begin talks on revising the North American Free Trade Agreement. Trade among the three nations has quadrupled since NAFTA came into effect in 1994, surpassing $1 trillion in 2015. "We are very focused on the notion that Canada and Mexico are our number 1 and number 3 trade partners, and we should treat them accordingly," said Palomarez, whose organization represents 4.5 million Hispanic-owned businesses that contribute a combined $668 billion to the U.S. economy annually.

HISPANIC STUDENTS NEED DEGREE DATA / PAUL E. PETERSON / US NEWS
As compared to other undergraduates, Hispanic students are 33 percent more likely to be enrolled in a two-year college rather than a four-year university. According to the National Center on Educational Statistics, Hispanic students constituted 23 percent of the 2014 undergraduate enrollments in colleges offering an associate's degree, but only 17 percent of the enrollment in institutions offering a bachelor's. Yet the value of a bachelor's diploma has never been greater. According to the College Board, students who get a bachelor's earn, on average, 33 percent more annually than do students who receive only an associate's degree ($61,400 versus $46,000).

AS AN IMMIGRANT, I FOUND THE BEST OF AMERICA IN CHARLOTTESVILLE / ANUSHAY HOSSAIN / CNN
I will forever remember the summer of 2017 as the summer I watched my sleepy, beautiful college town of Charlottesville burn across the world's television screens as neo-Nazi groups descended, clashing with counter protesters, leaving one dead and many injured. As I watched on television and online, part of me felt a maternal instinct to protect the city where two decades ago I arrived from Bangladesh, beginning a chapter in a country that would eventually become my home. Far away from my family and friends back home, it was in Charlottesville where I found the best of America. Like the thousands of other students who come to America to attend world-class colleges and universities, I ended up in Charlottesville because my parents wanted me to have the best educational opportunities. Between my older sister and me, we have three degrees from UVA.

WHAT THE BLACK DEATH TAUGHT US ABOUT IMMIGRATION / JUSTIN FOX / BLOOMBERG
When the Black Death came to Europe in the mid-1300s, it took about a third of the continent’s population with it. Cities suffered the worst of it. Paris lost half its people, Florence and Hamburg closer to 60 percent. The immediate economic and societal effects were of course devastating -- and the economic hangover lasted for decades. But even as follow-on epidemics of the bubonic plague continued to sweep through the continent, something interesting (if not all that surprising, when you think about it) happened. Here’s historian Fernand Braudel’s description: Peasants, suddenly in high demand, forced an end to serfdom across much of Western Europe during this era.

KINEW PLANS CHANGES TO IMMIGRANT NOMINEE PROGRAM / JASON FRIESEN / WINNIPEG SUN
Kinew announced on Monday in Winnipeg’s Central Park that if he is elected as the leader of the NDP and eventually premier, he would cancel the $500 fee currently being charged for applicants to the program, which he called an ‘unnecessary impediment to immigration’. “In some cases it acts to discriminate against people without resources who have the work ethic and drive to succeed in our society,” Kinew said. The cutting of the fee would represent a loss of $2 million annually, which would be accounted for in the budget according to Kinew. He says the money currently goes to general revenue, but there is talk of allocating it to training for English language services. But Kinew assured that they would still be committed to those services even without the fee.

THREE IMMIGRANT ENTREPRENEURS BRING A TASTE OF HOME TO ST. LOUIS / MARIA ALTMAN / ST LOUIS PUBLIC RADIO
Estie Cruz-Curoe knows black beans. The Cuban native came to the U.S. in the early 1960s and grew up in Miami, where her mother added a Cuban mix of spices to canned black beans. But when Cruz-Curoe moved to the Midwest as an adult, she could no longer find the right black beans. So she started experimenting with dried black beans and her own spices. “A little while later they were coming out pretty good, and I started serving it to my family and my family was liking it, and I started serving to my friends and they were liking it,” Cruz-Curoe said.
