MÉXICO NO NEGOCIARÁ TLCAN POR REDES SOCIALES, RESPONDE LA CANCILLERÍA A TRUMP / CAROLINA RIVERA / MILENIO
México no negociará el Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte a través de redes sociales, respondió Cancillería luego de que Donald Trump cuestionara hoy en Twitter si Estados Unidos debe permanecer en el acuerdo. En un comunicado, la Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores (SRE) aseguró que ningún aspecto de la relación bilateral será manejado a través de redes sociales o declaraciones en medios de comunicación. Por la mañana, Donald Trump tuiteó que México y Canadá son “muy difíciles” y cuestionó si el tratado debe terminar, además de señalar que México tiene altos índices de criminalidad e insistir en otro tuit que México debe pagar por la construcción del muro fronterizo, una de sus promesas de campaña.

MEXICO OFFERS HELPING HAND TO HARVEY VICTIMS / LIA EUSTACHEWICH / THE NEW YORK POST
Mexico has offered Texas a helping hand “as good neighbors should always do in trying times” as Tropical Storm Harvey continues to ravage the Lone Star State. Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray expressed his support for Texas during a phone call Sunday night with Gov. Greg Abbott, the Dallas Morning News reported. “The Mexican government takes this opportunity to express its full solidarity with the people and government of the United States as a result of the damages caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas, and expresses that it has offered to provide help and cooperation to the US government in order to deal with the impact of this natural disaster — as good neighbors should always do in trying times,” Mexico’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement. Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez, the Mexican consul general in Austin, also said he’s been in constant touch with Abbott’s office about how he can help.

AS IMPLEMENTATION APPROACHES, UNCERTAINTY LOOMS OVER TEXAS’S SANCTUARY CITIES BAN / JASON BUCH / EXPRESS-NEWS
As the Friday implementation date for Texas’s so-called sanctuary cities ban approaches without a decision on a legal challenge to the law, advocacy groups and law enforcement are making contingency plans. Catholic Charities and other organizations that serve the immigrant community are holding know-your-rights workshops, and the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office is changing its training regimen as uncertainty looms about whether the law will go into effect. (…) In a meeting last month with advocacy groups, religious organizations and local governments at the Mexican Consulate General, the decision was made to operate “under the assumption that we will get an injunction that will make the world of Aug. 30 look like world of Sept. 2,” he said.

PERDÓN A ARPAIO DESATA OLEADA DE CRÍTICAS EN EU / EL UNIVERSAL
El indulto otorgado por Donald Trump al ex alguacil de Arizona Joe Arpaio muestra una falta de respeto hacia un sistema judicial independiente, afirmaron ayer demócratas, republicanos y la prensa. “El presidente tiene la autoridad para conceder este perdón, pero hacerlo en este momento socava su reclamo por el respeto del Estado de derecho, ya que el señor Arpaio no ha mostrado remordimientos por sus acciones”, dijo el senador republicano por Arizona John McCain. Arpaio fue condenado por desacatar órdenes de suspender redadas contra indocumentados. Trump lo indultó el viernes y aseguró que el ex alguacil “mantuvo segura a Arizona”.

‘DREAMER’ PLAN THAT AIDED 800,000 IMMIGRANTS IS THREATENED / MIRIAM JORDAN / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Jessica Rojas beat poverty to put herself through engineering college, where she collected accolades for academic achievement. After graduating last year, Ms. Rojas, who grew up in Chicago, was hired by a utility company to help modernize the city’s electrical grid. But her life could soon be upended in a showdown over a five-year-old initiative, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, which has granted permission to stay and work to about 800,000 immigrants like Ms. Rojas who were brought illegally to the United States as children. Since attacking DACA on the campaign trail, President Trump has pledged to keep the program alive, calling recipients, also known as Dreamers, “absolutely incredible kids” who deserve compassion.

RAUNER IN CHICAGO TO SIGN IMMIGRANT RIGHTS, VOTER REGISTRATION BILLS / JOHN R. O'NEILL / CHICAGO SUN TIMES
Gov. Bruce Rauner is scheduled to sign two bills at separate news conferences Monday morning. The first bill will create automatic voter registration in Illinois. The new law will automatically register eligible voters whenever they apply for, update, or renew a driver’s license or state ID. Rauner was scheduled to sign the voting bill at the Harold Washington Cultural Center in Bronzeville at a 9 am news conference. The bill will put in place the farthest reaching automatic voter registration law in the country. The bipartisan piece of legislation passed in both the senate and house with zero opposition votes. Illinois will be the 10th state, and the first in the Midwest, to enact automatic voter registration into law.

TRUMP EXPECTED TO DECIDE SOON ON FATE OF YOUNG IMMIGRANTS / JILL COLVIN / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
After months of delays, President Donald Trump is expected to decide soon on the fate of young immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children as he faces a looming court deadline and is digging in on appeals to his base. Advocates on both sides of the issue are bracing for the possibility that Trump will halt the issuance of new work permits under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, a move that would effectively phase out a program that gave hundreds of thousands of young people a reprieve from deportation and the ability to work legally in the U.S. The Trump administration faces a Sept. 5 deadline from a group of Republican state lawmakers hoping to force the president's hand.

TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION CRACKDOWN IS MAKING NEW HOMES MORE EXPENSIVE / MARGARET NEWKIRK / BLOOMBERG
Last year, Jim Brown and other home builders around Atlanta could get a good framing crew at a rate of $3.25 per square foot. This year, the few framers they can find demand, and get, almost double that. “They can ask anything,” Brown said. “There aren’t enough of them left.” A high-end home builder who supported President Donald Trump last year, Brown said the president’s immigration policies have dried up the already stretched supply of Hispanic-dominated framing labor. That has driven up home prices by slowing the supply of new houses as well as raising the cost of building them. A 3,000-square-foot house that cost $9,750 to frame even late last year now costs $18,000, he said, while last year’s six-month supply of homes in the construction pipeline is down by half.

DENVER’S NEW STANCE ON IMMIGRATION COULD DRAW BLOWBACK FROM THE FEDS — BUT OTHER CITIES HAVE GONE FURTHER / JON MURRAY / THE DENVER POST
Denver city officials are poised to take a stand on immigration Monday night that likely will rankle federal authorities and the Trump administration. But even if the proposed immigration policy ordinance were to put some federal grants at risk or invite other federal backlash, national observers with differing views say it’s also likely that Denver would remain overshadowed by other cities. Chicago, San Francisco and New York are among those that have long been more forceful in protecting immigrants who are in the country illegally, including by refusing to share jail release dates or barring nearly any communication with immigration officials.

CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY WOULD BENEFIT FROM REBUILT IMMIGRATION POLICY / CARLOS CARRILLO / SUN SENTINEL
Immigration has been thrust back into the spotlight. Earlier this month, President Donald Trump lent his vocal support to the RAISE Act written by U.S. Senators Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia. Last week the president reiterated his commitment to building a border wall, even if it meant shutting down our government. Much of the opinions on the subject I have seen have focused on the human element of immigration, as it is typically viewed through a national lens. But what does it mean for Florida’s economy, and for my industry, commercial construction? Florida’s construction economy is surging — but the one factor holding it back is a lack of skilled labor.

TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION POLICY WORKING, WITHOUT BUILDING A WALL — ANALYSIS / DEBRA J. SAUNDERS / LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
Arguably the most successful element of Donald Trump’s presidency involves a campaign promise that hasn’t been enacted or funded by Congress. The mere threat of a wall — a “big, beautiful” wall — along the Mexican border has transformed the immigration equation, as fewer undocumented immigrants cross the border into the United States. The number of illegal border crossings was down 47 percent in July compared with the same period last year, and the number is down 22 percent for the 2017 fiscal year, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Meanwhile, the number of total orders for voluntary departures or removal of undocumented immigrants between Feb. 1 and July 31 is up 31 percent.

MEXICO SAVED AMERICAN LIVES AFTER KATRINA. WILL TRUMP ACCEPT ITS AID AFTER HARVEY? / MAX BEARAK / WASHINGTON POST
The devastation wrought by Hurricane Harvey is already apparent, even though forecasters say the storm may be only half done dumping rainfall totals measured in feet over the Texas and Louisiana coasts. In possibly the most starkly worded National Weather Service announcement imaginable, the agency said Sunday that “this event is unprecedented” and “beyond anything experienced.” For many Americans, Harvey is bringing back memories of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Nearly 2,000 people died in the aftermath of that storm. The U.S. government and Federal Emergency Management Agency's response to Katrina was widely criticized, but Americans came together to offer housing, clothing, meals and monetary help to the affected. President George W. Bush even accepted a huge offer of aid from Mexico.

POLITICS NOT ECONOMICS SETS THE LIMIT ON CANADIAN IMMIGRATION: DON PITTIS / DON PITTIS / CBC NEWS
A well-known economic theory says that when it comes to people, you can get too much of a good thing. As thousands of asylum seekers come across the Canadian border to escape Trump's America, there are many Canadian voices, including mainstream Conservatives, who believe we may have reached that point. A glance at internet comments and letters to the editor shows that some Canadians are reacting emotionally to media reports on the influx of new arrivals. But what about the economics? In the economic principle sometimes called the law of diminishing returns, there is a text book example which describes an increasing number of workers coming to help dig in a garden of limited size. One or two pairs of extra hands make the garden more productive, but as the number increases, the benefit falls, until, at extremes, there are so many people they are stomping on the plants and productivity collapses.

IMMIGRATION CANADA BLOQUE L’ARRIVEE D’ETUDIANTS ETRANGERS AU QUEBEC / ALAIN LAFOREST / JOURNAL DE MONTREAL
Un seul des huit étudiants étrangers en provenance des îles Comores a obtenu l’autorisation d’Immigration Canada pour entreprendre ses études au Cégep de Victoriaville. Les fonctionnaires fédéraux n’ont pas donné l’autorisation à sept jeunes de débuter au Québec une formation en technique d'électronique industrielle. «Au Cégep de Victoriaville, on choisit toujours des étudiants dans des programmes où les finissants ont des perspectives d'emploi de 90% et plus», insiste le directeur général de l’établissement, Paul Thériault. «Le véritable problème, c’est qu’on crée de l'espoir inutilement», ajoute-t-il. M. Thériault comme son directeur des études Christian Héon n'arrivent pas à s'expliquer pourquoi ces sept étudiants boursiers du gouvernement du Québec ne peuvent venir à son collège alors qu'ils répondent à tous les critères.

AUSTRALIA’S IMMIGRATION CHIEF DEFENDS CUTTING SUPPORT FOR SOME ASYLUM SEEKERS / SARAH MALIKAUG / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Australia’s immigration minister, Peter Dutton, has defended a move to cut off financial and housing support to up to 100 asylum seekers brought from its offshore camps for medical treatment, reigniting debate over the country’s detention policy. In a radio interview on Monday, Mr. Dutton accused asylum seekers of using medical transfers to manipulate the system and as a way to escape detention on Australia’s offshore camps on Manus Island in Papua New Guinea and on the island nation of Nauru. “I think people believe in a fair go, but this is ripping the system off,” he said in an interview with the conservative radio host Alan Jones. “We’ve given notice to almost 60 of them to say that the game is up and we aren’t going to provide you with the housing — the welfare will stop,” Mr. Dutton said, referring to asylum seekers.

ROYAUME-UNI : CONFUSION SUR LES CHIFFRES DE L’IMMIGRATION / ERIC ALBERT / LE MONDE
Et si le principal argument des partisans du Brexit, le trop-plein d’immigration au Royaume-Uni, était en train de s’effondrer ? La question a joué un rôle clé lors du référendum pour sortir de l’UE, en 2016. Depuis des années, les statistiques du nombre net d’immigrés (immigration moins émigration) au Royaume-Uni étaient scrutées à la loupe. Leur nombre, qui dépassait régulièrement 300 000 personnes par an, était jugé excessif, et les gouvernements conservateurs successifs de David Cameron et de Theresa May ont fait une promesse : passer sous la barre des 100 000 par an. Sortir de l’Union, et reprendre le contrôle des frontières, était une manière d’y arriver, selon les tenants du Brexit.
