CITY TO CONSIDER EL GRITO CELEBRATION / TRIPP STELNICKI / SANTA FE NEW MEXICAN
A plan to celebrate Mexican Independence Day on the Plaza for a second consecutive year moved forward Monday at the city Finance Committee. The Sept. 16 celebration of Mexico’s freedom from Spanish rule comes at the request of the Mexican consulate in Albuquerque. El Grito, as the day is sometimes called, refers to the battle cry that initiated the fight against the crown. The city held an El Grito event on the Plaza last year, the first that had taken place on the historic city center since 1844, when Santa Fe belonged to Mexico. Other El Grito celebrations had been held in city parks, but a Plaza celebration was viewed by Mexican immigrants as a tribute to the local contributions of those with Mexican heritage.

TRUMP VIAJA A ARIZONA PARA PRESUMIR DISMINUCIÓN EN EL CRUCE DE MIGRANTES / J. JESÚS ESQUIVEL / PROCESO
El presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, viajará este martes a la zona fronteriza de Yuma, Arizona, que colinda con el estado de Sonora, donde destacará una baja del 46% en el cruce de inmigrantes indocumentados en esa región y la necesidad de edificar el muro que propone para la frontera con México, adelantaron funcionarios de su gobierno. “Del 1 de enero al 31 de julio de este año, se han detenido en el sector fronterizo de Yuma a más de 126 mil inmigrantes indocumentados, lo que representa una reducción del 46% de aprehensiones respecto al mismo periodo de tiempo en 2016”, informó un funcionario del Departamento de Seguridad Interior, durante una teleconferencia organizada por la Casa Blanca.

LEY SB4, OTRA PESADILLA PARA MEXICANOS ILEGALES / BERTHA ESCALANTE / EL SOL DE MÉXICO
La entrada en vigor de la Ley SB4 en Texas el 1 de septiembre próximo, es un problema más al que deberán enfrentarse mexicanos que no hayan legalizado su situación migratoria en Estados Unidos. Y es que esa disposición, otorga poderes extraordinarios a policías locales para que sus agentes pidan documentos a cualquier persona que detengan para conocer si están legalmente en el país. Incluso si no son arrestados por algún crimen, las personas indocumentadas podrán ser entregadas a las autoridades de inmigración, quienes podrían proceder a colocarlos en proceso de deportación de Estados Unidos. Ante ello, el gobierno del Estado busca la forma en que el mayor número de migrantes cuente con documentos de identidad, además de que la red consular en Texas está atenta en ofrecer información a los connacionales sobre esos temas.

TRUMP ORDER COULD GIVE IMMIGRATION AGENTS A FOOTHOLD IN US SCHOOLS / MARK KEIERLEBER / THE GUARDIAN
One student exchanged hand gestures with a classmate in the school hallway. Another drew graffiti in his notebook. A third wore a Chicago Bulls T-shirt. School authorities on Long Island, New York, accused the teenagers of displaying signs or symbols associated with a notorious street gang with close ties to Central America. They were suspended, and several of the students were arrested. But before the charges were substantiated – even before appeals of their suspensions were complete – the students were shipped off to detention facilities thousands of miles from home, without their parents’ knowledge. Not because of gang activity – which has yet to be proven in court – but because of immigration status.

DEMOCRATS, ACTIVISTS URGE PROTESTERS AT TRUMP RALLY TO BE PEACEFUL / RONALD J. HANSEN / THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC
Puente Arizona, a migrant-rights organization, is hoping thousands show up to protest President Donald Trump's visit to Phoenix on Tuesday. The chairman of Black Lives Matter in Phoenix is sitting it out after the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. Democrats, meanwhile, aren't calling for a show of numbers against the president, nor are they asking people to skip the event. They have asked for peaceful protests and plan to hand out water to those who do show up. Trump's campaign rally comes at a time of angst and anger, causing his opponents to consider how best to respond to the visit. At the same time, his supporters are expected to again pack the Phoenix Convention Center, but it is unclear how many will engage with protesters outside the building or elsewhere.

PLACES WITH THE FEWEST IMMIGRANTS PUSH BACK HARDEST AGAINST IMMIGRATION / RONALD BROWNSTEIN / CNN
As President Donald Trump's trip to Arizona is certain to demonstrate, immigration remains one of the most polarizing issues in American politics. But the central political fault line around the dispute follows a surprising path. The paradox of this emotional debate is that generally the states and communities with the fewest immigrants are pushing to reduce immigration over the objections of the places with the most immigrants. Even as Republicans from President Trump to leading legislators in the House and Senate are driving to reduce both undocumented and legal immigration, the core of the GOP's electoral strength in both presidential and Congressional contests are the places with the smallest share of immigrants, US Census data show.

THE IMMIGRANT HORDES ARE ALREADY HERE! OR NOT / CATHERINE RAMPELL / THE WASHINGTON POST
Hide your wife, hide your husband, hide your child! The immigrant hordes are already here! Or so lots of Americans believe — making it easier for politicians and fringe “alt-right” white-supremacist groups to seize on these fears and exploit them for political gain. The share of people in the United States who were born abroad has been rising over the past several decades, reaching 13.4 percent in 2015. (The highest share recorded was in 1890, at 14.8 percent.) Perceived levels of immigration, however, are several multiples of that number and have been so for a while. The 2013 Transatlantic Trends survey conducted by the German Marshall Fund of the United States, for example, asked people across 13 countries to estimate the percentage of their national population that was born abroad.

THE NEW FRONTIER OF RACE AND IMMIGRATION: MIDDLE AMERICA / JUSTIN GEST AND DAVID LUBELL / LOS ANGELES TIMES
The violence perpetrated by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va., on Aug. 12 represents the most extreme manifestation of the cultural anxiety latent in many American cities and towns that are confronted by demographic change. Peering at maps of concentrated blue enclaves and the vast red countryside, it may seem that there are two Americas — one that welcomes diverse peoples and facilitates their integration into the United States, and another that perceives diverse peoples as a threat to the cultural composition of the country. We both keep one foot in each America. One of us is the child of a refugee father and a mother from rural Georgia, who graduated from a Los Angeles public school, lives in Manhattan and focused his recent research on white working-class people’s marginality in the Rust Belt.

LEGISLATOR EQUATES ASTORINO’S IRREGULAR IMMIGRATION STANCE TO BEING A ‘NAZI’ / CARL CAMPANILE / THE NEW YORK POST
A dispute over irregular immigration has turned ugly in Westchester, with a leader of the Board of Legislators accusing County Executive Rob Astorino of acting like a Nazi. Majority Leader Catherine Borgia (D-Ossining) took issue with comments Astorino made while vetoing a bill that would have protect undocumented immigrants from deportation. Astorino deried the bill as a “Sanctuary County” plan. “It’s the classic `Big Lie’ technique. All clever Nazis use it,” Borgia said in an Aug. 16 email obtained by The Post. In the email, Borgia was looking for votes to override Astorino’s veto. The legislation would have blocked county police and other local officials from communicating with federal authorities solely on civil immigration matters.

HE HAD A COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP, BUT WAS DEPORTED. NOW THE FORMER SOCCER STAR MUST BUILD A LIFE IN EL SALVADOR / MARIA SACCHETTI / THE WASHINGTON POST
Lizandro Claros Saravia was supposed to be at college in North Carolina by now. At soccer practice. At the library. Instead, the 19-year-old soccer star from Germantown is hundreds of miles away, in a sweltering Central American nation he barely recognizes and sometimes fears. U.S. immigration officials swiftly deported him and his older brother, Diego, on Aug. 2, days after Lizandro told them during a routine check-in that he had a scholarship to attend Louisburg College. “I don’t know what we’re going to do,” Lizandro, his gaze flat, said in an interview here last week, as he and his brother waited to pick up their 83-year-old grandfather — who had been visiting the United States on a visa when his grandsons were deported — from the airport. “I feel like in this country, I don’t have a future.”

DEPORTED MEXICAN MAN SEEKS HELP FROM JUDGE TARGETED BY TRUMP / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Lawyers for a Mexican man who was shielded from being deported will try to persuade a judge who has been a target of President Donald Trump's scorn that the administration wrongly expelled their client from the United States. Juan Manuel Montes, 23, is the first known recipient of the five-year-old Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to be deported under Trump, according to supporters. The administration says Montes left the United States voluntarily, causing him to forfeit his protected status. U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel will hear arguments Tuesday, nearly five months after he approved a settlement for Trump to pay $25 million to end lawsuits alleging fraud at his now-defunct Trump University.

ANTI-IMMIGRATION BANNER REMOVED FROM MONTREAL OLYMPIC PARK / MATT GRILLO / GLOBAL NEWS
An anti-immigration banner on display outside Montreal’s Olympic Stadium has been removed by park officials. According to Olympic Park spokesperson Cédric Essiminy, the banner was given to Montreal police, and a report has been filed. “We don’t allow any kind of banner that is not approved by the park,” Essiminy said. Essiminy said security guards noticed the #REMIGRATION banner, which had been on display for a couple of hours. On Facebook, a self-described nationalist group posted photos of the banner with a message accusing the media of swaying public opinion. Montreal police spokesperson Manuel Couture told Global News his office will be contacting Quebec City authorities.

UNE BANDEROLE ANTI-IMMIGRATION AU STADE / MATTHIEU PAYEN / JOURNAL DE MONTREAL
Des militants anti-immigration ont installé des banderoles à Montréal la nuit dernière, dont une sur le stade olympique où des centaines de demandeurs d’asile sont actuellement hébergés. Sur ces banderoles, il est inscrit « Remigration », terme utilisé par les partisans d’un retour des migrants dans leur pays d’origine. Selon le groupe identitaire Atalante Québec, plus d’une dizaine de ces banderoles ont été installées à Montréal. Certaines sont affichées en photo sur la page Facebook du groupe. L’une des banderoles a été placée sur la façade d’un bâtiment au sud du Parc olympique, tout près de là où sont logés temporairement quelque 600 demandeurs d’asile. « L’affiche a été rapidement arrachée par nos employés ce matin (hier), nous avons pris des photos et nous avons averti la police », dit le porte-parole de la Régie des installations olympiques, Cédric Essiminy.
