MEXICANOS EN TEXAS, EN LA INCERTIDUMBRE POR LEY SB4 / EL SOL DE MÉXICO
Los mexicanos en Estados Unidos y en Texas en particular, si no cuentan con documentos, tienen temor no solo de trasladarse a México sino dentro de Texas y en todo Estados Unidos, refiere en entrevista Francisco de la Torre Galindo, cónsul general de México en Dallas. “Hay incertidumbre. Hay temor. No podemos tapar el sol con un dedo. Tenemos en puerta la entrada en vigor de la Ley SB4 en Texas -el primero de septiembre- que tiende a criminalizar más al migrante y crea un clima para la persecución y la discriminación racial”. (…) “Y en el caso concreto de Texas, pensamos que la Ley SB4, que entrará en vigor el primero de septiembre, tiende a criminalizar más al migrante y segundo, crea un clima para la persecución y la discriminación racial”, dijo el diplomático, quien fue director ejecutivo del Instituto de los Mexicanos en el Exterior, antes de ejercer el cargo de Cónsul General de México en Dallas, Texas.

Since 1987, the CHP has offered a traffic safety outreach program to the Hispanic community, known as El Protector. It emphasizes education through dialogue with the community, instead of focusing on enforcement measures. The focus is the use of a CHP officer of Hispanic ancestry who is bilingual and bicultural. (…) Aside from having the best job in the world, I am completely involved with educating the Hispanic community. I am involved with many organizations: the Mexican Consulate, Univision, Telemundo, National Latino Peace Officers Association, Centro La Familia Advocacy Services, Fresno Concilio, Cesar Chavez Concilio, area radio stations, numerous schools, and countless other groups that provide a major component of an extension between the Hispanic community and the CHP.

CONFUNDEN A MAGIC JOHNSON CON INMIGRANTE INDOCUMENTADO EN ITALIA / EL UNIVERSAL
La ex estrella del basquetbol Magic Johnson y el actor Samuel L. Jackson fueron confundidos con inmigrantes indocumentados en una fotografía publicada por redes sociales en la que aparecen sentados en una banca en la localidad turística italiana de Forte dei Marmi. La imagen fue difundida por el periodista Luca Bottura, en lo que dijo fue un experimento para probar la reacción de sus compatriotas, cada día más intolerantes contra los inmigrantes. Bottura escribió al lado de la foto que se trataba de dos indocumentados que iban de compras con los 35 euros de fondos comunitarios previstos para auxiliar a cada inmigrante desembarcado en Italia.

APPLICATIONS FOR CALIFORNIA IMMIGRANT DRIVER'S LICENSES DECLINING AS NUMBERS NEAR 1M / LESLIE BERESTEIN ROJAS / KPCC
There will soon be a million California drivers who obtained their driver licenses under a state law that allowed unauthorized immigrants to apply for permission to drive legally. As of July, about 915,000 immigrants had obtained the special licenses that became available in January 2015. State Department of Motor Vehicles officials anticipate the million mark will be hit in the next few months. Updated license numbers for August will be released next month. While there an initial rush to apply for the licenses, known as AB 60 for the Assembly bill that was adopted, DMV officials said the number of applicants each month has gradually declined since early last year, from about 27,000 in January 2016 to 11,000 this past June.

FIFTH-YEAR CELEBRATION OF DACA IS BITTERSWEET FOR DREAMERS / MICHAEL LYLE / LAS VEGAS SUN
Brenda Romero remembered feeling angry when she was a teenager and it truly hit her what it meant to be undocumented. Whether it was her longing to get a driver’s license, her dream of college or her desire to secure a good-paying job to help her family, her immigration status was a barrier. That was until a June morning five years ago when President Barack Obama announced an executive order known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. “I remember President Obama giving that address,” said Romero, who had just graduated from high school that summer. “I remember crying because I couldn’t believe that was something happening. (DACA) gave me hope.”

COUNTER-PROTESTERS SWARM RALLY AGAINST ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IN LAGUNA BEACH / ANDREA CASTILLO, VICTORIA KIM / LOS ANGELES TIMES
With protesters and counter-protesters facing off in tense confrontations across the country this weekend in the wake of the deadly clash in Charlottesville, Va., activists in Orange County wanted to try something different. An “America First!” rally against illegal immigration was scheduled for Sunday evening. Counter-protesters, including the city’s mayor, staged their own protest but scheduled it a day earlier. “As we’re constantly reminded to act and not react, we’re also reminded not to serve the racists’ purpose and provide them with a platform to spread their hatred,” organizers of the Saturday event wrote on Facebook.

IMMIGRANT FACING DEPORTATION FINDS REFUGE AT CHURCH / ALEX TAYLOR AND LINDA MASSARELLA / THE NEW YORK POST
A Guatemalan immigrant facing deportation has taken her three children and sought refuge inside a Manhattan church. Amanda Morales — who entered the country illegally in 2004 — has been hiding out with her kids at the Holyrood Episcopal Church in Washington Heights since Thursday. “I don’t want them to deport her,” Dulce Carvajal, the woman’s 9-year-old daughter, told The Post on Sunday. “I feel sad sometimes.” The family of four is living in a side room of the building, with bunk beds that were erected for the children to sleep on. The church’s priest, the Rev. Luis Barrios, said he offered to house the family when Immigration and Customs Enforcement authorities ordered Morales back to Guatemala.

BAD IMMIGRATION LAWYERS HARD TO FIND, HARDER TO STOP / NOMAAN MERCHANT / ABC NEWS
Soon after he opened his office serving immigrants fighting to stay in the United States, Raed Gonzalez became a lawyer who goes after other lawyers. A person with a winnable case can be thrown into deportation by a missed deadline or a botched court filing, and attorneys quietly known by others to do bad legal work can practice for years without being stopped. So Gonzalez began helping immigrants file complaints against lawyers with their state licensing organizations. By his count, his firm has filed 90 complaints against lawyers in the last five years. With a rapid succession of policy changes and a sharp rise in arrests, the Trump administration has created a surge of demand among immigrants in need of legal help, and hundreds of lawyers have started taking on immigration cases.

U.S. EMBASSY STOPS ISSUING NONIMMIGRANT VISAS TO RUSSIANS AS DIPLOMATIC STANDOFF DEEPENS / ANDREW ROTH / THE WASHINGTON POST
The U.S. Embassy in Moscow announced Monday that it would temporarily stop issuing all nonimmigrant visas in Russia and severely curtail visa operations as it slashes its staff to comply with the latest salvo in Washington’s diplomatic standoff with Moscow. The decision comes after Russia demanded that the U.S. mission in the country reduce its staff from more than 1,200 employees to 455, the same size as the Russian diplomatic mission in the United States. The American Embassy’s announcement will likely mean delays for the hundreds of thousands of Russians who apply for nonimmigrant visas to the United States each year.

LATINO STUDENTS FIND SUCCESS IN SCIENCE AT UVU / BARBARA CHRISTIANSEN / DAILY HERALD
Two dozen underserved high school students are on their way to becoming scientists, thanks to a Utah Valley University program called Latino Scientists of Tomorrow. This year, most of the students are from Utah County. At no charge, this summer they attended classes at UVU four hours a day, five days a week, for seven weeks. In addition, they took field trips to round out their learning experiences. While still in high school, they earned college credit for two classes. Those are introduction to biotechnology and fitness for life, both of which count as elective credits, no matter what major they pursue. The fitness class focuses on the science of exercise. The program encourages future participation in science, technology, engineering and math, also known as STEM.

TRUDEAU URGES TRUST IN IMMIGRATION SYSTEM / DURHAM REGION
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canadians should maintain confidence in the immigration system even as thousands of asylum seekers continue to pour into the country. Speaking to reporters Sunday, Trudeau said that none of those walking across the United States border would receive any special advantages in their quest to come to Canada, stressing to Canadians and would-be refugees alike that border hoppers must go through the usual security checks and immigration evaluations. Federal authorities say that through the first two weeks of August, more than 3,800 people walked over the border into Quebec, compared to the 2,996 who similarly crossed the border throughout all of July.

LE RASSEMBLEMENT DE LA MEUTE SE TERMINE SANS ACCROC / JEAN-FREDERIC MOREAU / LE SOLEIL
Le porte-parole de La Meute, Sylvain Brouillette, estime que son groupe aurait remporté une bataille en montrant à la population que La Meute est un groupe «contre la violence» qui «respecte les lois». Il est d'avis que les radicaux sont ceux qui ont empêché sa bande de manifester à 14h, comme c'était prévu. «Aujourd'hui, on a montré au monde qui étaient les radicaux. On va laisser juger les gens de la suite», a lancé M. Brouillette aux membres rassemblés à la fin de la marche. Souvent décrite comme raciste, xénophobe et anti-immigration, La Meute prévoyait manifester en haute ville contre ce qu'elle perçoit comme une vague d'immigration illégale et hors de contrôle, lorsqu'un petit groupe de contre-manifestants est venu créer du grabuge, ce qui a forcé les autorités à exiger que les membres de La Meute restent isolés.

RALLY IN QUEBEC TURNS VIOLENT AFTER PROTESTERS OPPOSING ANTI-IMMIGRANT RALLIES CLASH WITH POLICE / THE STAR
Tensions boiled over in Quebec City on Sunday, as police were pelted by beer bottles and smoke bombs set off in garbage cans in an ugly end to a weekend of pro- and anti-immigrant rallies across the country. The Quebec group La Meute, which is associated with the far right, called for a rally Sunday to protest against the federal and provincial government’s handling of the border crossers, but ended up having its members pinned inside a garage while counter-protesters demonstrated outside. Once the counter protesters turned violent, the Quebec City police declared the protest illegal. Clashes ensued and at least one protester was arrested as officers tried to block access to the building where some of the La Meute protesters had taken refuge.

ANTI-IMMIGRANT GROUP LEADER SAYS HE DIDN’T SPEAK AT SATURDAY’S RALLY IN VANCOUVER BECAUSE HE FELT UNSAFE / KYLE BENNING / THE GLOBAL NEWS
A post by one of the would-be speakers at Saturday’s anti-Muslim and anti-Immigrant rally, says he didn’t feel safe speaking at Vancouver city hall, which is why he didn’t show up. The founder of the Cultural Action Party of Canada posted a statement on Facebook reading in part, “…it was more than obvious my physical safety was in jeopardy.” Brad Salzberg says he thinks about five per cent of Canadians who were made aware of the rally would agree with the CAP’s beliefs, or has an open mind about them. He went on to say there was a significant degree of progress towards the goals of the rally, which was to reach the heartland communities of Canada.

¿POR QUÉ ESPAÑA VUELVE A SER RUTA PRINCIPAL PARA LOS INMIGRANTES QUE BUSCAN ENTRAR EN EUROPA POR EL MEDITERRÁNEO? / GUILLERMO D. OLMO / BBC MUNDO
Hacía mucho que los guardacostas españoles no tenían tanto trabajo. Sólo el miércoles rescataron en el Mediterráneo a 600 personas. Y es que España está volviendo a ser ruta prioritaria en la búsqueda del sueño europeo para miles de migrantes. Según la Organización Internacional de las Migraciones, este año llegaron ya más del triple de inmigrantes irregulares que en todo 2016. Las cifras indican que, después de algunos años de relativa calma, las autoridades españolas vuelven a tener un problema en su frontera sur. "España se va a disparar como destino, es algo que se ve venir desde hace tiempo", le dijo a BBC Mundo Óscar Camps, director de la ONG Proactiva Open Arms, que se dedica al rescate de inmigrantes en el Mediterráneo.
