PIDE VIDEGARAY REACCIONAR CON "CABEZA FRÍA" ANTE DISCURSO DE TRUMP POR TLCAN / EL UNIVERSAL
El secretario de Relaciones Exteriores, Luis Videgaray, pidió reaccionar con serenidad y cabeza fría, luego de que anoche, el presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, dijo que es posible que ese país cancele su participación en el Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN). Entrevistado por Ciro Gómez Leyva en Radio Fórmula, el Canciller aseguró que "si Trump quisiera cancelar el TLC ya lo habría hecho, no se habría esperado 8 meses ni iniciado negociaciones", pues así es su manera de negociar. En entrevista con Carlos Loret de Mola, dijo que “no sorprende la amenaza. Le está hablando a gente de su campaña, en un tono descolorido. Hay que entender que es un proceso y el presidente está negociando”.

PROTECCIÓN A 'DREAMERS' A CAMBIO DE DINERO PARA MURO / MILENIO
Un grupo de los principales colaboradores del presidente estadunidense Donald Trump, incluido su yerno Jared Kushner, promueven un plan migratorio que daría protección a los “dreamers” a cambio de que el Congreso apruebe dinero para el muro, reportó la agencia McClatchy. El plan incluye extender el llamado Programa de Acción Diferida para Llegados en la Infancia (DACA), que protege a unos 800 mil jóvenes indocumentados, la mayoría mexicanos, a cambio de fondos del legislativo para las prioridades de la administración Trump. Entre las prioridades figuran los mil 600 millones de dólares para el muro en la frontera con México, recursos para más instalaciones de detención de inmigrantes, reducciones a la inmigración legal y dinero para E-Verify, un programa de verificación laboral.

SE ENSAÑA CON LOS INDOCUMENTADOS / EL SIGLO DE TORREÓN
A pesar de la baja de 46 por ciento en el número de cruces en la frontera con México este año, la administración del presidente Donald Trump intensificará las operaciones a través de Estados Unidos para buscar y detener a inmigrantes indocumentados. Esto forma parte de la nueva política de cero tolerancia para quienes han logrado burlar los filtros fronterizos. "Un individuo que cruce la frontera de manera ilegal y pase (los controles de) la patrulla fronteriza, no debe sentirse seguro de que es inmune a cualquier acción futura para hacer cumplir la ley", dijo un funcionario del Departamento de Seguridad Interna (DHS), al defender la contratación adicional de 15 mil agentes de migración pese a la baja en los cruces de inmigrantes indocumentados.

DISMINUYE EL NÚMERO DE INDOCUMENTADOS QUE INTENTA CRUZAR HACIA ESTADOS UNIDOS / LA JORNADA
El número de personas que intenta cruzar sin papeles la frontera entre México y Estados Unidos ha disminuido drásticamente este año en comparación con el anterior, según el gobierno de Donald Trump, quien visitó ayer el suroeste del país. El total de expulsiones bajó, porque se redujo la llegada de indocumentados. Sin embargo, con la nueva política de Trump, dirigida a arrestar en territorio estadunidense a quienes hayan violado su estatuto migratorio, se incrementó la cifra de detenciones y expulsiones de sin papeles por el ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement).

TITULAR DE ACNUR VISITA CENTROAMÉRICA POR TEMA DE MIGRANTES / RADIO FÓRMULA
El titular del Alto Comisionado de las Naciones Unidas para los Refugiados (ACNUR), el italiano Filippo Grandi, comenzó hoy en Guatemala una visita por Centroamérica y México, con el objetivo de conocer la situación de los migrantes de la región.

En rueda de prensa conjunta con el canciller de Guatemala, Carlos Raúl Morales, explicó que la idea es "familiarizarse" con "el fenómeno de la migración y la movilidad humana en Centroamérica".

LAS ‘CIUDADES ANTISANTUARIO’ CONTINÚAN MULTIPLICÁNDOSE BAJO TRUMP / UNIVISION
El posible perdón al alguacil Joe Arpaio podría ayudar a promover las controversiales medidas migratorias que muchos gobiernos locales están deseosos de aplicar. El presidente Trump ha planteado la posibilidad de indultar a Joe Arpaio y la noche del martes estará en su ciudad, Phoenix, Arizona, para hablarle a sus seguidores. Arpaio es un conocido expolicía del condado de Maricopa, quien fue condenado recientemente por juzgar y discriminar sin razón a los inmigrantes indocumentados de la zona. Y si el presidente decide hacerlo, estaría perdonando la reprochable y abusadora conducta de Arpaio hacia los inmigrantes, fomentando a otros gobiernos locales para que abandonen cualquier tipo de respuesta legal y se sumen a la conducta de este exagente.

TRABAJO “DURO Y HONESTO” DE JORNALEROS MEXICANOS, EN CANADÁ / NOTIMEX
Los trabajadores agrícolas mexicanos laboran muy duro, son muy honestos y apreciamos mucho su trabajo, dijo a Notimex la copropietaria de una granja canadiense, Linda Chen. “Para nosotros sería muy duro mantener nuestra granja sin el trabajo de los jornaleros mexicanos, pues sería difícil encontrar aquí quien haga ese trabajo”, agregó la copropietaria de la granja Andrews´s Scenic Acres, en Halton, Ontario. En esta granja laboran 15 trabajadores en el cultivo de flores, sobre todo girasoles y de frutas para producir vinos de uva, frambuesa, fresa y calabaza. Cada año vienen a Canadá más de 24 mil trabajadores mexicanos que forman parte del Programa de Trabajadores Agrícolas Temporales (PTAT) que opera desde 1974.

TRUMP THREATENS SHUTDOWN OVER BORDER WALL, SUGGESTS CONTROVERSIAL PARDON AT PHOENIX RALLY / JOHN WAGNER, JENNA JOHNSON AND DANIELLE PAQUETTE / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
President Donald Trump on Tuesday threatened to shut down the government over border wall funding, said the North American Free Trade Agreement is likely to be terminated and signaled that he was prepared to pardon former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, who is anathema to the Latino community. Trump's freewheeling comments came during a boisterous campaign rally here during which he also went on an extended diatribe about the media, blaming reporters for the negative fallout he has received over his responses to the hate-fueled violence in Charlottesville. Arpaio was convicted last month of criminal contempt for ignoring a federal judge's order to stop detaining people because he merely suspected them of being undocumented immigrants.

RAUNER WILL SIGN IMMIGRATION BILL, AIDE SAYS / KIM GEIGER / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner will sign into law a bill that would protect immigrants who are in the country illegally from being detained solely because of their immigration status, according to his office. The decision to approve the controversial legislation marks a victory for immigrant advocates and a defeat for the more conservative members of the governor's party, who had lobbied against the bill. Rauner spokeswoman Laurel Patrick said the governor would sign the legislation Monday, but she did not say where the signing would take place. Rauner had indicated Friday that he was supportive of the bill, noting on WBEZ-FM 91.5's "Morning Shift" that it was "supported by law enforcement, it's supported by the business community, it's supported by the immigration community."

STEPHEN MILLER NEEDS TO GET THE FACTS ON IMMIGRATION, LEGAL AND OTHERWISE / MEGAN SCHRADER / THE DENVER POST
Colorado was introduced to Stephen Miller’s world-view of immigrants long before he introduced President Donald Trump’s sweeping legal immigration reforms in a hostile press conference this month. Miller was Trump’s surrogate to Colorado in April 2016 and he spoke at the state assembly in Colorado Springs. Remember, that was the time Trump failed to win a single delegate and Ted Cruz swept the floor. Oh, and a rogue tweet from the state’s official GOP account proclaimed, “Never Trump.” Fun times. Anyway, Miller delivered a truly odd speech that day. As a reporter I remarked on it to my conservative sources at the event, who seemed less disturbed by it than I was, although decidedly underwhelmed.

BROWN: SHERIFF SUPPORTED TRUMP — AND IMMIGRANT PROTECTION BILL / MARK BROWN / CHICAGO SUN TIMES
For those who don’t care to hear another word from me about immigration, perhaps you’d be more interested in what Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran has to say. Curran runs the third largest sheriff’s department in Illinois in a county that is roughly 20 percent Latino. Elected in 2006 as a Democrat, Curran switched to the Republican Party in 2008 and won re-election twice more. Last year he ran as a Marco Rubio delegate to the Republican National Convention but in the end voted for Donald Trump for president to keep Democrats from controlling the Supreme Court. Most important for our purposes today, he is a committed supporter of immigration reform and to limiting the role of local police in immigration enforcement — another complete switcheroo from when he came into office as a self-described “hard-liner.”

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT FORMER ARIZONA SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO’S RECORD ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION / MICHELLE YE HEE LEE / THE WASHINGTON POST
At his Aug. 22 rally in Phoenix, President Trump heaped praise on longtime ally and campaign surrogate Joe Arpaio, the embattled former sheriff from Arizona. While he didn’t announce a presidential pardon at the rally, he indicated he was ready to offer it. For many years, Trump and Arpaio shared a pet issue: the “birther” theory. Trump was a vocal proponent of it, until he abandoned it during the 2016 presidential campaign and then falsely blamed Hillary Clinton for starting the conspiracy. Arpaio and his volunteer “cold-case posse” perpetuated the conspiracy for six years until Arpaio was voted out of office in 2016.

SPEAKING OUT AGAINST IMMIGRATION RAIDS IS HER DUTY, CALIFORNIA JUSTICE SAYS / ANGELA HART / SACRAMENTO BEE
California’s Supreme Court chief justice has forcefully called on federal immigration agents to stop looking in California’s courtrooms for people they suspect are living in the country illegally, a move some have criticized as politically motivated. But state Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye said Tuesday she feels it’s her duty to speak out on federal policy that allows Immigrations and Customs Enforcement officials to detain people in and around courtrooms, a practice she said has been “in full force.” “If no one ever speaks out, then we can never be the land of the free and the home of the brave,” Cantil-Sakauye said at a panel discussion hosted by state Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara.

IMMIGRATION MINISTER DENIES THAT CANADA WAS UNPREPARED FOR SURGE OF ASYLUM SEEKERS / INGRID PERITZ / THE GLOBE AND MAIL
Canada’s Immigration Minister denies his government was poorly prepared for the surge of asylum seekers streaming on foot into Quebec from the United States this summer, even as federal officials intensify efforts to try to curb the flow of those showing up at irregular border crossings. “We were prepared. We were always on top of this,” Ahmed Hussen said in an interview. The federal government is dispatching a Liberal MP to Miami and using social media to try to counter “misinformation” that appears to be driving migrants, mostly Haitian, to walk across the border at unmanned Canadian crossings. More than 7,000 people have illegally entered Canada since June, the RCMP say.

CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP GRANT UPHELD FOR IMMIGRANT DOCTOR LIVING IN THE U.S. / THE NATIONAL POST
An immigrant doctor doing medical training in the United States can keep his Canadian citizenship even though he had spent far fewer days in Canada than normally required to become a citizen, Federal Court has ruled. In rejecting an appeal from the federal government, Judge Susan Elliott found no reason to undo an earlier decision to allow Irfan Saddique to become a Canadian. Court records show Saddique declared only 177 days of physical presence in Canada when he applied to become a citizen, well short of the required 1,095 days. Normally, that would have disqualified his application. However, Saddique argued successfully before a citizenship judge in January that he had been forced to move to the U.S. for his medical residency so he could earn the credentials he needed to work as a doctor in Canada.

AGING JAPAN WANTS AUTOMATION, NOT IMMIGRATION / DANIEL MOSS / THE BLOOMBERG
Japan's next boom may be at hand, driven by the very thing that is supposed to be bad for its economy. Japan's aging and shrinking population has been partly blamed for the on-again, off-again nature of growth and deflation the past three decades. Lately, it's been driving a different and just as powerful idea: In the absence of large-scale immigration, the only viable solution for many domestic industries is to plow money into robots and information technology more generally. Humans will still be needed, of course, and that's behind a separate by-product of Japan's demographic challenges that I wrote about during a visit there last month. With unemployment down to 2.8 percent, companies are increasingly realizing they need to pay up to attract and keep qualified personnel.

OCEANIA’S DOOR OPEN FOR MIGRANTS / GABY GALVIN / US NEWS
People seeking a new country to call home may want to head to Iceland or New Zealand and avoid Eastern Europe, according to a new Gallup poll on people's attitudes toward immigrants. That's because Iceland and New Zealand are the countries most accepting of migrants, according to the report, which was conducted among about 142,500 people in 139 countries in 2016 and 2017. Macedonia, Montenegro and Hungary are the least accepting of migrants by Gallup's index. To determine the Migrant Acceptance Index, Gallup researchers assigned scores to countries based on whether survey respondents said it was a good or bad thing for immigrants to live in their country, to become their neighbor or to marry their close relative. The highest possible score was a 9.0, and the average was 5.29.
