LA VECINDAD HOSTIL DE EU / EL ECONOMISTA
Más allá de las amenazas y falta de diplomacia, obvias diferencias entre los presidentes Trump y Obama, y a pesar de que este último le quedó a deber a nuestros connacionales políticas y reformas migratorias integrales , existen cambios en la dinámica social, la práctica de la defensa legal y las deportaciones de mexicanos desde Estados Unidos, que diferencian sus mandatos. La primera diferencia es el miedo que existe entre los migrantes. El discurso xenófobo de Trump ha hecho que la comunidad tenga conductas complejas y problemas en términos de su salud mental, la de sus familias y seres queridos, que no veíamos con la misma intensidad antes.

LATINOS, LOS MEJORES AMERICANOS QUE HAY: EXPERTO UCLA / INDER BUGARIN / EL UNIVERSAL
David Hayes Bautista, descendiente de mexiquenses por familia materna y sociólogo médico de profesión, se hizo historiador para combatir los estereotipos que marcan a los hispanos de Estados Unidos. Pero su lucha emprendida desde hace 40 años por poner en perspectiva el peso y la influencia de la comunidad en la Unión Americana no es emocional, sino científica, dice en entrevista con EL UNIVERSAL el profesor del Departamento de Políticas Públicas de la Universidad de California Los Ángeles (UCLA). Contrario a los dichos del presidente estadounidense Donald Trump, quien en su último discurso en Arizona, el martes pasado, mantuvo el guión de polarización nacional, el catedrático afirma que los latinoamericanos son un fuerte pilar de la economía de EU y su futuro es más alentador que el del resto de los grupos.

BAJO CONTROL LA MIGRACIÓN INDOCUMENTADA A CANADÁ: TRUDEAU / EL ECONOMISTA
El primer ministro de Canadá aseguró que la migración irregular, que se ha acrecentado en los últimos dos meses en el país, está "bajo control", por lo que no cambiará su sistema migratorio.

Las remesas en Michoacán han presentado una desaceleración de 3.6 por ciento, de acuerdo con el Colegio de Economistas de Michoacán que encabeza Heliodoro Gil Corona. El economista explicó que para el 2016 las remesas en la entidad fueron del 9.1 por ciento, y para este primer semestre del 2017 se tuvo un incremento del 5.2 por ciento punto cuatro menos que el resto del país.

IMMIGRANT GROUP IN VA. SUES ICE OVER ‘COLLATERAL ARRESTS’ IT CALLS UNCONSTITUTIONAL / ANTONIO OLIVO / THE WASHINGTON POST
Advocates in Virginia filed a lawsuit Wednesday against four federal immigration agents over a practice known as “collateral arrests” that have helped boost the number of undocumented immigrants apprehended under President Trump’s administration. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court in Alexandria, claims that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents violated the constitutional rights of two men who are accused of being in the country illegally, but have been otherwise law-abiding, by detaining them without reasonable suspicion. The ICE agents encountered Mynor Abdiel Tun-Cus and Jose Pajarito Saput in the parking lot of the Fairmont Gardens apartments as they were on their way to work and asked about another man who hadn't lived at the complex for about five years, according to the lawsuit filed by the Legal Aid Justice Center in Northern Virginia, which seeks unspecified damages.

IMMIGRANT RIGHTS ADVOCATES URGE GOV. JERRY BROWN NOT TO CHANGE 'SANCTUARY STATE' LEGISLATION / JAZMINE ULLOA / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Immigrant rights advocates on Wednesday urged Gov. Jerry Brown not to change state legislation that would expand laws to keep local and state law enforcement agencies from arresting, questioning and holding immigrants for federal agents. As part of lobbying efforts on immigration and bail reform legislation, eight members with PICO California, a faith-based policy advocacy organization, said they met with Brown to discuss the need for so-called "sanctuary state" legislation. Senate Bill 54, which was introduced by Senate leader Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles), is the centerpiece proposal in a legislative package filed by Democrats to protect immigrants under Trump's expanded deportation orders. It would prohibit police and sheriff agencies from using resources to enforce federal immigration laws.

EVEN WITH AFFIRMATIVE ACTION, BLACKS AND HISPANICS ARE MORE UNDERREPRESENTED AT TOP COLLEGES THAN 35 YEARS AGO / JEREMY ASHKENAS, HAEYOUN PARK AND ADAM PEARCE / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Even after decades of affirmative action, black and Hispanic students are more underrepresented at the nation’s top colleges and universities than they were 35 years ago, according to a New York Times analysis. The share of black freshmen at elite schools is virtually unchanged since 1980. Black students are just 6 percent of freshmen but 15 percent of college-age Americans, as the chart below shows. More Hispanics are attending elite schools, but the increase has not kept up with the huge growth of young Hispanics in the United States, so the gap between students and the college-age population has widened.

LATINOS SAYS CBS DIVERSITY PROGRESS IS PART OF NEW PUSH / LYNN ELBER / DETROIT NEWS
Latino leaders meeting with top CBS executives last week were braced for a confrontation over a protracted scarcity of Latino actors and stories on the network’s prime-time shows. “We said, ‘That’s it, no more’ ” in preparing for the encounter, said Alex Nogales of the National Latino Media Coalition. Instead, the coalition said in a statement Tuesday it found CBS has made “record commitments” to improved representation of Latinos, which Nogales said has galvanized the group to demand more from other networks. “We’re going to be very militant from here on out. … The next target is Fox,” he said, with a meeting to be requested next week. Letter-writing campaigns and boycotts could be among the tools employed to push broadcasters to act, he said.

ICE DETAINS YOUNG KENTUCKY MOTHER WHO HAS LEGAL STATUS / MARK CURNUTTE / USA TODAY
Immigration police officers seized a 22-year-old mother of two young children last week and are holding her for deportation despite having legal status, the Enquirer has learned. In a case with national implications, Riccy Enriquez Perdomo, 22, of Florence, Ky., was arrested Thursday and has been held at four different locations since then, say her family and attorneys. Federal officials say they plan to deport Enriquez next week, family members say. She has been moved to the McHenry County Jail northwest of Chicago. It is the final stop for detainees who are in the deportation process in that region. Enriquez, the married mother of two children, ages 5 and 11 months, is a two-time recipient of legal status through the DACA program. Otherwise known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, it was created in 2012 through an executive order by then-president Barack Obama to provide temporary relief for young adults who had been brought illegally into the country as children.

U.S. RETAILERS HIT AS IMMIGRATION WORRIES WEIGH ON HISPANIC SPENDING / RICHA NAIDU / REUTERS
Many U.S. Hispanics are venturing out only to buy essential goods and are cutting back on discretionary spending, worried about possible harassment by immigration or law enforcement officials since the election of U.S. President Donald Trump, according to community groups, research firms and retailers. This change in consumer behavior by the country's second-fastest-growing ethnic group has recently been cited as a cause for worry by already-struggling consumer companies, from big-box retailers to auto parts makers. O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY.O) Chief Executive Gregory Henslee told analysts earlier this month that many of the company's stores with weak second-quarter sales were in Hispanic-dominant areas of the United States. "It's not just something that we've seen. It's something that most retailers have seen," Henslee said.

CHICAGO LIBRARIAN CAPTURES PUNK AESTHETIC, LATINO CULTURE IN NEW KIDS' BOOK / HEIDI STEVENS / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Twelve-year-old Malú, the protagonist in “The First Rule of Punk,” Celia Pérez’s delightful new middle grade novel, calls herself a “weirdo pie chart kid.” She feels sliced into lots of different parts and unsure whether they add up to meet anyone’s expectations — including her own. People keep telling Malú to just be herself, but what does that even mean at 12? At any age? Maybe you know a kid who can relate. “The First Rule of Punk” is the book Pérez, a Chicago librarian, was looking for when she was 12. “At its heart, it’s a book about identity,” Pérez told me. “As a child of immigrants, as someone who is bicultural — my dad is Cuban, my mom is Mexican — I definitely experienced a lot of similar questions.”

ACTIVISTS LAUNCH HUNGER STRIKE TO URGE THE CATHOLIC CHURCH TO SERVE AS SANCTUARY FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS / PERRY STEIN / THE WASHINGTON POST
Three veteran activists are staging a hunger strike in front of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception this week, calling on the Roman Catholic Church to open its church doors to undocumented immigrants fearing deportation. The protesters — a nun, a former Jesuit brother and a female priest not recognized by the church — said they wrote a letter to Cardinal Donald Wuerl making the request but have received no response. Wuerl, the leader of the Washington Archdiocese’s 620,000 Catholics, said in March that the church’s values compel it to oppose the deportation of immigrants living illegally in the United States. But he has expressed caution about the idea of churches acting as sanctuaries for those seeking to avoid deportation.

IMMIGRATION: LABEAUME N'UTILISE PAS LES BONS TERMES, DIT COUILLARD / STEEVE PARADIS / LA PRESSE
Philippe Couillard reproche à Régis Labeaume de ne pas utiliser les bons termes lorsque le maire de Québec parle d'immigration en référant à l'arrivée massive au pays d'Haïtiens quittant les États-Unis. «Il ne faut pas dire des choses inexactes au monde. Ce n'est pas de l'immigration, ce sont des gens qui cherchent un statut de réfugié. C'est totalement différent», a lancé le premier ministre du Québec mercredi soir, en marge d'une visite privée lors de son arrêt à Baie-Comeau, où il a notamment rencontré les élus régionaux. «[Les réfugiés sont] un enjeu très compliqué et mondial actuellement», a enchaîné M. Couillard. «Le Québec et le Canada font leur part parce qu'il y a des conventions internationales et des lois, ce n'est pas improvisé.»

UK IMMIGRATION LEVELS MAY BE LOWER THAN THOUGHT, NEW BORDER CHECKS FIND / JAMIE GRIERSON / THE GUARDIAN
Ninety-seven per cent of international students leave the UK after finishing their studies, new border checks have reportedly found, suggesting levels of immigration in the UK are much lower than previously thought. It has been claimed that tens of thousands of international students remain in the country illegally after completing their studies but exit checks introduced last year found evidence to the contrary, the Telegraph reported. Citing Whitehall sources, the newspaper said the overall net migration figure, which stands at 248,000 in the most recent estimate, could be tens of thousands lower after taking into account the new exit checks.

IMMIGRATION FALLS AS EU CITIZENS QUIT U.K. AFTER BREXIT VOTE / ANDREW ATKINSON / BLOOMBERG
Net migration to the U.K. fell to a three-year low after an exodus of European workers following the June 2016 Brexit referendum. Arrivals outnumbered departures by 246,000 in the 12 months through March 2017. That was down a “statistically significant” 81,000 from a year earlier and was also the lowest figure since March 2014, the Office for National Statistics in London said Thursday . EU nationals quitting Britain accounted for much of the change. The outflow was most pronounced among citizens of the eight central and eastern European nations that joined the bloc in 2004, including Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic. The number of people coming to Britain declined.

BRITAIN’S GENEROUS POST-WAR IMMIGRATION POLICY / CLAIR WILLS / ECONOMIST
IN 1956 an airstrip was built on Montserrat. For the first time it was easy to fly to and from the Caribbean island; within five years 30% of its inhabitants had emigrated to Britain. Similar exoduses took place across the world: by 1961 nearly a sixth of those born in the Republic of Ireland lived in Britain. Like a quarter of the population on Earth, the Montserratians and Irish lived in a British colony or former colony. Under the British Nationality Act of 1948, imperial subjects and Commonwealth citizens were entitled to the same rights as anyone born in Britain. This proved to be short-lived. The Commonwealth “open door”, the subject of Clair Wills’s poignant book, “Lovers and Strangers”, lasted only until 1968. Ms Wills, a Princeton professor, has produced a series of thematic “miniatures” depicting “the fragmentary experiences of metropolitan migrant life”.

FINNS WANT TOUGHER IMMIGRATION POLICY AFTER KNIFE ATTACK, POLL SHOWS / REUTERS
An increasing number of Finns want the government to get tougher on immigration after last week's knife attack by a Moroccan asylum seeker that killed two women and wounded eight other people, an opinion poll showed on Thursday. Friday's stabbings in the city of Turku have been treated as the first suspected Islamist militant attack in Finland, which boasts one of the lowest crime rates in the world. However, the main suspected has denied terrorism was a motive. Some 58 percent of Finns want the government to tighten immigration policy and give police and other officials extra powers to prevent future attacks, according to the poll, which was taken after the attack and published by the Finnish newspaper Iltalehti. A similar poll in April showed only 40 percent supported stricter policies.
