NUEVA LEY EN CALIFORNIA PROTEGERÁ A INDOCUMENTADOS / MILENIO
El Senado de California aprobó una ley para proteger la información sobre la condición migratoria de las personas y garantizar a los indocumentados su comparecencia en tribunales, sin el riesgo de deportación. El proyecto, presentado por el senador Scott Wiener y la asambleísta Lorena González Fletcher, responde de manera directa a la política migratoria del gobierno del presidente estadunidense Donald Trump, que atemoriza a los indocumentados con el riesgo de ser deportados.

VAN POR CANCELACIÓN DE LEY ANTIMIGRANTES / NTR ZACATECAS
Las federaciones de zacatecanos radicados en Texas se unieron con otras organizaciones migrantes en una campaña para apoyar a la comunidad damnificada por el huracán Harvey y buscar la suspensión definitiva de la ley SB4, que ha sido señalada por atentar contra los derechos de los connacionales. Luego de que autoridades de aquella entidad de Estados Unidos aceptaran la ayuda del gobierno mexicano, la Corte Federal de Distrito para el Oeste de Texas ordenó suspender de manera provisional la entrada en vigor de algunas disposiciones de la nueva norma, hasta que concluya el juicio para declarar si es inconstitucional.

EL PLAN ‘DREAMER’ QUE AYUDÓ A 800 MIL MIGRANTES EN EU ESTÁ EN RIESGO / PUBLIMETRO
La vida de Jessica Rojas podría cambiar ante la confrontación de una iniciativa, la Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (o DACA, por sus siglas en inglés) creada hace cinco años, que le permitió quedarse y trabajar en Estados Unidos a unos 800 mil migrantes como Rojas, que llegaron de manera ilegal al país cuando eran niños. A pesar de sus ataques contra DACA desde su campaña, Donald Trump ha prometido mantener vivo el programa, además de llamar a sus beneficiarios, también conocidos como dreamers, “chicos absolutamente increíbles” que merecen compasión.

REMESAS DE JULIO ALCANZARON PARA MENOS / EL ECONOMISTA
Las remesas captadas por hogares mexicanos en julio ascendieron a 2,459 millones de dólares, con lo que superaron en 9.4% el flujo recibido el mismo mes del año anterior, y alcanzaron así un registro histórico para un mes similar, confirmaron estadísticas del Banco de México (Banxico). No obstante, en el detalle de la información se observa que cayó su poder de compra en pesos por segundo mes consecutivo, resultado principalmente de la apreciación del peso y de la escalada de la inflación, acotó Alberto Ramos, analista de Goldman Sachs.

HAY UN AVANCE EN DEFENSA DE MIGRANTES EN EU: CNDH / EUGENIA JIMÉNEZ / MILENIO
La Comisión Nacional de los Derechos Humanos (CNDH) logró que el Juez de Distrito en San Antonio, Orlando García, resolviera la no aplicación de algunos apartados de la Ley SB 04 que entrarían en vigor este 1 de septiembre lo cual representó un avance en la defensa de los derechos de la comunidad migrante de Texas, Estados Unidos. Con esta decisión "las personas en contexto de migración no podrán ser detenidas por percepción, como consecuencia de su perfil racial, apariencia, acento, ascendencia o lenguaje, ya que los términos y facultades otorgadas en esa Ley abrían la posibilidad de una aplicación basada en señalamiento o estigmatización de las personas, provocando eventuales deportaciones y separaciones familiares que dejarían en soledad y desamparo a niñas niños y adolescentes".

TRUMP EXPECTED TO LIFT PROTECTIONS FOR IMMIGRANT ‘DREAMERS’ BUT DELAY MOVE FOR UP TO SIX MONTHS / MICHAEL C. BENDER AND LAURA MECKLER / THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
President Donald Trump is expected to lift deportation protections for undocumented immigrants brought into the country as children, but delay the move for as long as six months in order to allow time for Congress to approve legislation to substitute for the program, two White House officials said. The officials cautioned that such a move remained under consideration, and weren’t yet finalized. House Speaker Paul Ryan and other Republicans in recent days had joined Democrats in urging Mr. Trump to retain the Obama-era program that protects young illegal immigrants from deportation, promising to push legislation to protect them if he doesn’t. The program is called DACA, for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

RESCINDING DACA WOULD BE THE MEANEST OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION'S MEAN ANTI-IMMIGRANT ACTIONS / WAYNE A. CORNELIUS / LOS ANGELES TIMES
A decision on the fate of DACA is due Tuesday. Ending the program would arguably be the most mean-spirited and shortsighted of the Trump administration’s many anti-immigrant actions. On the campaign trail, candidate Donald Trump attacked the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program as an “executive amnesty” perpetrated by President Obama. But after the election he repeatedly declined to simply shut it down, promising that he would find a way to “do something for the kids.” Now it appears he may have been putting the program on life support, to be terminated whenever a compelling political rationale came along.

IMMIGRANT 'DREAMERS' - AND THEIR BOSSES - WAIT ANXIOUSLY FOR TRUMP DECISION / YEGANEH TORBATI, ANN SAPHIR / REUTERS
Ilka Eren, 25, came to the United States from Turkey with her parents more than 15 years ago and lives in the country without legal authorization. While in college, she applied and qualified for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), an Obama-era program that President Donald Trump vowed to end during his 2016 presidential campaign. The program does not change an immigrant’s legal status but rather protects from deportation and gives the right to work to so-called “Dreamers,” young people brought to the United States as children and living in the country illegally. Nearly 800,000 immigrants have received DACA protection since the program’s launch in 2012. Eren’s DACA status opened the door to several internships, and eventually to a job in New York at Ovation Travel Group, which provides travel services to corporations, as executive assistant to the chief financial officer.

MEXICAN-BORN HERO WHO DROWNED WHILE RESCUING HARVEY FLOODING VICTIMS WAS PART OF 'DREAMER' PROGRAMME TRUMP IS SCRAPPING / ANDREW BUNCOMBE / THE INDEPENDENT
The body of a Mexican-born Houston volunteer - a young man who was living in the US under an immigration scheme Donald Trump plans to scrap - has been recovered from the floodwaters, four days after he went to help rescue people trapped in the water. The family of 31-year-old Alonso Guillen, said they had warned him not to set out on an rescue mission with two friends, given the severity of the floods. But the group insisted, saying they wanted to help people in need. Mr Guillen and two friends set off on their mission at midnight on Wednesday and did not return. Their vessel hit a bridge and sank in Cypress Creek, according to the Houston Chronicle.

FEARING DEPORTATION, IMMIGRANT FLOOD VICTIMS MAKE DO ON THEIR OWN / LOMI KRIEL / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
The water surged into the modest low-lying apartments with the full force of nearby overflowing Greens Bayou, slamming toys and tiny buckled shoes onto countertops and overturning chairs. Byron Soto waded through knee-high water, carrying his toddlers to a second floor. But as the menacing tide edged closer, he used a friend's inflatable boat to get to a vacant apartment on higher ground at the complex where he and his family are still camped out. He, and others like him in the flooded apartments near Interstate 10 and Federal Road, didn't think about calling 911. Instead, they did what they often have had to do while living illegally in the United States: They improvised.

US IMMIGRATION: DACA AND DREAMERS EXPLAINED / STEVE ALMASY, CATHERINE E. SHOICHET AND SUSANNAH CULLINANE / CNN
The Trump administration is set to announce an end to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) -- President Barack Obama's signature immigration policy, sources have told CNN. The program to protect undocumented migrants who came to the United States as children from deportation was introduced in 2012. The White House says it will announce a decision on the program Tuesday. Who's participating in the program? These are undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children, a group often described as Dreamers. To be eligible, an applicant must have arrived in the US before age 16 and lived there since June 15, 2007.

'EVERY WOMAN IS A LEADER': SPEAKER SERIES AIMS TO EMPOWER IMMIGRANT WOMEN / CBC NEWS
Giselle General's mother, father and sister were killed in a motor vehicle accident in 1999 in the Philippines. Her aunt and uncle spent eight years trying to sponsor General and her brother to come to Canada. In 2007, she moved to Toronto, and has since made her home in Edmonton. On Saturday, she shared her story, along with other immigrant women, at the Speak Out Women Series. The series, put on by Edmonton-based Gradual Rising of Women (GROW), aimed for women who have built a new life in Canada to share their trials and tribulations with other women who have just made the move. "Upon arriving to Canada, there is a lot of information overload," General told Radio-Canada on Saturday.

MEXIQUE : LES PACHUCOS, DE MEMBRES DE GANGS A DANSEURS DE MAMBO / RTBF
Chapeau orné d'une plume, fleur à la boutonnière et chaussures richelieu bicolores, les pachucos dansent au rythme du mambo dans des célèbres dancings rétros de Mexico et font vivre une sous-culture de bandes nées aux Etats-Unis dans les années 1930. La société américaine de cette époque est ouvertement raciste : les restaurants interdisent l'entrée "aux chiens, aux noirs et aux Mexicains" et dans les bus, les places assises sont réservées aux blancs. En signe de défi, les pachucos, Mexicains nés aux Etats-Unis, adoptent un style vestimentaire criard, sorte de parodie des tenues classiques des blancs. Le "zoot suit", costume composé d'une veste longue aux larges épaules rembourrées et d'un pantalon taille haute bouffant aux cuisses et étroit aux chevilles, en est l'élément central.

NO SKILLS, NO ENTRY / TOM NEWTON DUNN / THE SUN
Seven out of 10 who backed Britain’s EU exit at the referendum last year think free movement should continue for Europeans with ability. At the same time, there is strong consensus among both Remain and Leave voters to stop as many unskilled voters from coming to live in the UK when we leave the EU. The ICM poll commissioned by the British Future think tank found a total of 86% of all voters want high-skilled EU migration to stay at the same level as now or increase. But 64% - including 50% of Remain voters - say they would like low-skilled EU immigration numbers reduced.

HOW JAPAN NEEDS TO CHANGE TO WELCOME IMMIGRANTS / NOAH SMITH / BLOOMBERG
The U.S. has been roiled by debates over immigration. Japan has the opposite problem -- not enough debate. Immigration is happening, and no one is talking about it or preparing to deal with it. Americans tend to use Japan as an example of a country that doesn’t take in immigrants. For example, my Bloomberg View colleague Justin Fox recently wrote that “politicians have so far been unwilling to allow immigration to take up the slack” of an aging population. It’s true that Japan has a small foreign-born population compared to other countries: Mostly Locals.
