EMPRESARIOS DE EU ADVIERTEN A TRUMP CONTRA LA SUSPENSIÓN DE PROGRAMA MIGRATORIO / EXPANSION
Los dirigentes de grandes empresas estadounidenses, desde Amazon hasta Apple pasando por Facebook, pidieron a Donald Trump que mantenga un programa que permite a cientos de miles de jóvenes inmigrantes permanecer y trabajar en Estados Unidos. En un mensaje dirigido al presidente de Estados Unidos y a los funcionarios republicanos y demócratas del Congreso, los dirigentes, entre los que figuran también los presidentes de Cisco, eBay, General Motors y Microsoft, advierten contra el impacto económico que podría causar el cuestionamiento del estatuto de cerca de 800,000 personas. La Casa Blanca indicó que todavía no había tomado ninguna decisión sobre el futuro de este programa, conocido como DACA (por su siglas en inglés: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), que fue puesto en marcha en 2012 por Barack Obama con el fin de sacar de la sombra a los clandestinos que llegaron con menos de 16 años al país.

BLOQUEO A LA SB4 DA RESPIRO A INDOCUMENTADOS / PERLA PINEDA PEÑALOZA / EL ECONOMISTA
La decisión del juez Orlando García de bloquear temporalmente la mayoría de las cláusulas de la Ley SB4 en Texas, que entraría en vigor en el estado, ha dado un respiro a los inmigrantessin papeles; no obstante, los tintes de discriminación de la ley siguen latentes, ya que los policías podrán pedir de manera optativa y bajo su personal juicio discrecional, documentos de migración durante una detención o durante un arresto legal. El abogado especializado en temas de inmigración en Dallas, Haim Vásquez, indicó que el fallo es una victoria agridulce, ya que cada policía podría pedir la documentación en caso de que un inmigrante cometa una infracción de tránsito o participe en una trifulca. Sólo si el policía lo desea.

“HARVEY” Y DEPORTACIÓN AMENAZAN A INDOCUMENTADOS EN HOUSTON / MAX AUB / EL UNIVERSAL
“Tengo miedo de estar aquí adentro —en el Centro de Convenciones de Houston— y tengo miedo de estar afuera”, asegura “Pedro”, quien nos pidió el anonimato para dar la entrevista. Es un padre de familia indocumentado que tuvo que dejar su casa y buscar refugio con su familia en medio de la tragedia de Harvey, el huracán convertido ya en depresión tropical. “Estábamos en la casa y comenzó la lluvia, yo seguí muy atento las noticias y cuando menos me di cuenta la planta baja de la casa comenzó a inundarse y en menos de una hora ya tenía el agua a la cintura”, describe con angustia este padre de familia, quien de inmediato reunió a su esposa y dos hijos —un varón de 12 años y una niña de 10—.

REMESAS INCREMENTAN 9.4%, REPORTA EL BANXICO / LEONOR FLORES / EL UNIVERSAL
En julio las remesas presentaron el mayor aumento para un mes similar desde que se tienen registro de estos flujos que llegan a nuestro país. Banco de México (Banxico) informó que en el séptimo mes del año los connacionales enviaron, principalmente desde Estados Unidos, un monto de 2 mil 459 millones de dólares, es decir 9.4% más respecto julio de hace un año. Dicho monto también es mayor al mes previo, pues en junio se enviaron 2 mil 417 millones de dólares. Sin embargo no rebasó a lo que se registró en mayo con 2 mil 584 millones de dólares, ya que por tradición es el periodo en el cual los paisanos mandan más remesas con motivo del Día de la Madre.

OCHO HISTORIAS DE HÉROES INMIGRANTES EN MEDIO DEL DESASTRE CAUSADO POR HARVEY / UNIVISION
Si hay un lado positivo del huracán Harvey es seguramente el de historias sobre rescates increíbles y actos de valentía y sacrificio protagonizados por personas que llegaron a Houston de otros países buscando un futuro mejor. Los huracanes parecen sacar lo mejor de la gente, así sean inmigrantes o residentes del área. Los que vienen de otros países conocen bien lo duro que puede ser la vida y también están haciendo su contribución. Después de todo, Houston es una de las ciudades más diversas del país y sus residentes hablan por lo menos 145 idiomas, según un nuevo análisis de los datos del censo de Estados Unidos publicado esta semana.

WHITE HOUSE SHOOTS DOWN REPORT THAT ‘DREAMERS’ IMMIGRATION PROGRAM WILL END / BOB FREDERICKS / THE NEW YORK POST
President Trump is ready to end the “Dreamers” program covering some 800,000 undocumented immigrants, a new report said Thursday — but the White House swiftly shot it down, saying no ¬decision had been reached. Trump was set to announce that he would end the program as it currently exists, allowing it to “lapse” as early as Friday, Fox News reported. Those currently in the program would be allowed to stay until their work permits expired, the network said. But administration spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the matter was still under ¬review. “A final decision on that front has not been made,” she said. “This is under review, there are a lot of components that need to be looked at.”

IMMIGRANT MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ASK TRUMP TO KEEP DACA / DAVID WEIGEL / THE WASHINGTON POST
Rep. Rubén Kihuen (D-Nev.) and Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.), the first members of Congress who came to America as undocumented immigrants, joined the chorus of Democrats calling for the extension of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, with a letter telling President Trump to consider their life stories before making a decision. “We both remember arriving in the United States, speaking limited English, and being fearful of deportation,” Kihuen and Espaillat wrote. “Our backgrounds and the trajectory of our careers have been humbling, and show how, with the right opportunities, anyone can achieve the American Dream. Hearing about the looming threat to other young men and women who may be deprived of that American Dream is extremely concerning, and is causing fear in communities throughout the country.”

FOR TEXAS IMMIGRANTS, HARVEY CAME AT AN ALREADY TENSE TIME / HAILEY BRANSON-POTTS / LOS ANGELES TIMES
With Hurricane Harvey barreling toward his house in Corpus Christi and his family waiting it out in San Antonio, the young man’s mother made a comment that will stick with him. If there’s nothing left when we get back to Corpus Christi, she said, we’re going back to Mexico. It caught 22-year-old Alain by surprise. He and his mother are living in the country illegally, but he is a student at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and had been granted some protection from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. His family brought him to the U.S. when he was 8. His mother was joking about leaving — he thinks. “She said it for a reason,” said Alain, who asked that his full name be withheld to avoid drawing the attention of authorities. “When someone tells you you can’t live here anymore or they want to put you in another category as a human being, it hurts.”

LAKE CO. RELEASES 1ST IMMIGRANT FROM JAIL UNDER TRUST ACT PROVISIONS: 'I COULD BREATHE AGAIN' / YADIRA SANCHEZ OLSON / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
A few hours after Guillermina Vazquez and others prayed outside Lake County Jail for the release of her son, the anguished 57-year-old mother was able to bail him out and take him home. Vazquez's son was being held at the jail after his arrest earlier this month on felony drug charges, officials said. He also had a federal immigration detainer blocking his release, officials said. "I felt like I could breathe again," Vazquez said of the moment she saw her son come out through the doors and into her arms. Gov. Bruce Rauner signed the Illinoist Trust Act into law Monday, a move that paved the way for 32-year-old Luis Antonio Camacho Vazquez to be released after his bond was posted. Authorities said he was the first detainee at the Lake County jail released under the state's new Trust Act.

U.S. MOVES TO BUILD PROTOTYPES FOR MEXICAN BORDER WALL / RON NIXON / THE NEW YORK TIMES
The Department of Homeland Security took the first major step on Thursday toward building a barrier on the border with Mexico, a key campaign promise of President Trump, as officials announced that they had awarded contracts to build several prototypes of a concrete wall. Four companies will build the prototypes in the San Diego area, said officials at Customs and Border Protection, an agency within the department. The companies selected will each have 30 days to complete the projects after the agency gives them the order to proceed. “The border wall prototypes and designs will complement other tools we employ to secure our borders,” said Ronald D. Vitiello, acting deputy commissioner at Customs and Border Protection.

BLOCKING A BAD IMMIGRATION LAW IN TEXAS / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Anyone watching the storm devastation in Texas had to be stirred by the mix of resilient victims and valiant rescuers — a mix of people from all backgrounds united in a struggle for survival. The heroic images of community resolve could not have been a more apt backdrop for the decision by a federal judge in Texas in midstorm to block the Republican-controlled state government’s attempt to crack down on so-called sanctuary cities and make them enforce federal immigration laws. The judge’s ruling on Wednesday is temporary and the state will appeal it, but it did not seem at all disconnected from the powerful display of America projected before the nation. Houston and five other major sanctuary cities and counties sued to block a Texas law’s attempt to reinforce the nativist political gospel of President Trump and the strong-arm tactics of former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who pioneered the use of local police officers as enforcers of federal law in abusive dragnets across Latino communities in Arizona.

LATINOS ARE DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED BY ASTHMA, AND TRUMP'S POLICIES ARE MAKING IT WORSE / IGNACIA S. MORENO, RICHARD L. REVESZ / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Many Americans live where it is unsafe to breathe. About 40% of the U.S. population — more than 126 million people — live in areas that do not comply with national ambient air quality standards. This public health problem poses a particular threat to Latinos, who are exposed disproportionately to high levels of the main pollutants that can aggravate asthma: ozone and fine particulate matter. Latinos and Asian Americans are more likely than any other racial or ethic group to live in counties that don’t meet standards for particulate matter, according to a 2011 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study, the agency’s most recent report on air quality that includes demographic information.

LATINOS REBUILT NEW ORLEANS AFTER KATRINA. WHO WILL REBUILD HOUSTON? / JED HORNE / THE GUARDIAN
From Donald Trump’s tweets and hasty appearance Tuesday along the margins of the Hurricane Harvey disaster zone, it’s clear that the president’s grasp of history extends at least to 2005 and the lackluster performance of his Republican predecessor in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. His exclamations – “Wow!” – and vows to “do it better than ever before” were a calculated contrast with the iconic photo that showed an aloof Bush peering down at New Orleans from Air Force One. Bush was ending a vacation – in Texas, ironically – and returning to the White House days after Katrina rolled ashore, triggering the collapse of the federal levee system and a death toll that eventually rose above 1,800.

CANADA AND MEXICO WILL REMAIN IN NAFTA IF U.S. PULLS OUT: MEXICAN ECONOMY MINISTER / GLOBAL NEWS
Mexico and Canada would remain in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) even if the Trump administration abandoned the accord, Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo said on Thursday. “NAFTA will continue to regulate the relationship between Mexico and Canada,” Guajardo said at an event in Mexico City, noting that only Washington might consider leaving the accord. “The one that could take that decision, depending on how we get on with the negotiation, is our neighbor the United States.” Guajardo was speaking a day before U.S., Mexican and Canadian negotiators meet in Mexico City to work on updating the 23-year-old trade accord, which U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened to dump if he cannot rework it to his satisfaction.

660 000 $ POUR L'INTEGRATION ECONOMIQUE DES IMMIGRANTS A GATINEAU / RADIO-CANADA
La Ville de Gatineau et le gouvernement du Québec consacreront 660 000 $ sur deux ans à l'intégration économique des immigrants. La ministre de l'Immigration, de la Diversité et de l'Inclusion, Kathleen Weil, était de passage en Outaouais pour en faire l'annonce, jeudi.

Les fonds du gouvernement provincial viennent du Programme Mobilisation-Diversité du ministère de l'Immigration, de la Diversité et de l'Inclusion, mis sur pied en 2012-2013.

BITUMEN BITES: FORT MCMURRAY EATS UP NEW MEXICAN FOOD TRUCK / DAVID THURTON / CBC NEWS
Rodrigo Ramos remembers the moment he decided to leave his construction job with its steady income and risk everything on a food truck. He and his friend Ernesto were at work building a backyard deck in June 2015. It was near the end of their shift, they were hungry, and began talking about the tacos they would often cook together. Then Ernesto shared some words of advice in Spanish. "He called me hijo — 'my son,' " — Ramos said, remembering he was lugging a plank of wood on his shoulder when he heard the next words. " 'You must open a tacos business.' “A little more than two years later, Ramos and his girlfriend are the owners and operators of Viva Los Tacos. As many as 80 customers a day flock to the truck, parked in the corner of Fort McMurray's Peter Pond mall.

SCOTTISH CONSERVATIVES' LEADER QUESTIONS UK IMMIGRATION TARGET / REUTERS
Prime Minister Theresa May’s governing Conservatives should start a new “grown-up” debate on immigration as Britain leaves the European Union, Scottish Conservatives’ leader Ruth Davidson said on Friday as she questioned government targets. Davidson, who has more influence in Britain’s ruling party after Scottish election success in June, called for a fresh look at immigration seen by some politicians and businesses as crucial to economic growth but which was central to the Brexit vote with many people saying the rate was too high. “Immigration is not just about numbers, it’s about people and it’s about the sort of country that we are and want to be,” Davidson told an audience at the Institute for Public Policy Research.

DEUDA BRITÁNICA ATASCA AL BREXIT / EL ECONOMISTA
La tercera ronda de negociaciones resultó un fracaso de acuerdo a Michel Barnier. Bruselas. Las negociaciones sobre el Brexit se convirtieron en un diálogo de sordos, con ambas partes acusándose mutuamente por los escasos avances obtenidos, en particular en el espinoso tema de la factura financiera por la salida del Reino Unido de la Unión Europea (UE). Europeos y británicos terminaron en Bruselas una tercera ronda de conversaciones, iniciada el lunes con malos auspicios: la UE había pedido a Londres que empezara a “negociar de forma seria”. “En el transcurso de esta semana, hemos hecho una serie de aclaraciones útiles sobre una serie de puntos, por ejemplo, el estatus de los trabajadores fronterizos”, precisó el negociador jefe del bloque, Michel Barnier.
