El alcalde de Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, declaró hoy que la tercera ciudad más grande de Estados Unidos será una “zona libre de Trump” para jóvenes inmigrantes que puedan enfrentar la deportación después de que la administración estadounidense decidió poner fin al programa DACA.

APRENDE CÓMO OBTENER UNA LICENCIA PROFESIONAL EN L.A. / MEY LYN MITTEENN / LA OPINIÓN
El Consulado de México en L.A. dará un foro este 30 de agosto para enseñar cómo obtener este permiso a quienes tienen conocimientos en mecánica. Decenas de personas adquieren conocimientos en mantenimiento de autos o estudian mecánica en sus países de origen con la finalidad de dominar alguna habilidad que los ayude a sustentarse. Sin embargo, al llegar a Estados Unidos muchos se topan con trabas que les impide ejercer, entre ellas: ser indocumentado y/o carecer de una licencia que acredite sus estudios. Hoy ninguna de las dos es excusa para salir adelante. La ley de California SB1159, impulsada por el senador demócrata Ricardo Lara, permite a inmigrantes indocumentados obtener una licencia profesional para que puedan autoemplearse como contratistas independientes o abrir sus propios negocios.

MEXICAN GOVERNMENT CRITICIZES TRUMP’S DECISION TO END DACA PROGRAM / JOSHUA PARTLOW / WASHINGTON POST
The Mexican government said Tuesday that it “profoundly laments” the decision by the Trump administration to phase out the program that protects hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation. The fate of the young immigrants in this program, known as “dreamers,” could have a major effect on Mexico: Nearly 80 percent of the roughly 800,000 people approved under the program are from Mexico. The Mexican Foreign Ministry said in a statement that it has been pushing for the continuation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, since the beginning of the Trump administration, “in order to maintain the protection for hundreds of thousands of young people who are the beneficiaries of the program, the majority of them born in Mexico.”

TRUMP MEETS CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS AMID FIGHT OVER DEBT LIMIT, IMMIGRATION / SUSAN CORNWELL, JAMES OLIPHANT / REUTERS
Republican and Democratic congressional leaders on Wednesday clashed over raising the U.S. debt limit and the fate of 800,000 young adults brought into the United States illegally as children, as President Donald Trump pressed them to act. Trump met at the White House with congressional leaders from both parties, with lawmakers facing several pressing legislative priorities. Those include disaster relief for victims of Hurricane Harvey, raising the U.S. debt ceiling by early October to prevent an unprecedented default on U.S. government debt, and passing legislation for federal spending in the fiscal year that begins on Oct. 1 to avoid a government shutdown. “We have many, many things that are on the plate,” Trump told reporters at the beginning of a White House meeting with the congressional leaders heading into what promises to be frantic weeks of legislative work.

REPUBLICANS WORRY ABOUT ERODING HISPANIC SUPPORT AFTER TRUMP'S DACA ROLLBACK / DAVID M. DRUCKER / WASHINGTON EXAMINER
The Republican Party's brittle relationship with Hispanic voters absorbed another blow Tuesday when President Trump rolled back a constitutionally questionable program granting residency to illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children. Scrapping the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive action implemented by President Barack Obama in 2012 has thrown the future of nearly 1 million young, mostly Hispanic, unauthorized immigrants into limbo. Republicans are likely to take the blame, with their support among nonwhite voters further deteriorating, even though Trump ordered a six-month delay to give Congress time to pass legislation protecting these and other undocumented immigrants who mostly grew up in the United States.

WHAT CONGRESS COULD DO TO PROTECT YOUNG UNAUTHORIZED IMMIGRANTS / BENJAMIN SIEGEL / ABC NEWS
The Trump administration's plan to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, established by executive order under Barack Obama to protect hundreds of thousands of young unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. from deportation, and has put Congress under the gun to put forward a legislative fix. While efforts to create a path to citizenship and legal status for program enrollees, known as Dreamers, have repeatedly stalled over the years, the administration has given Congress six months to produce a solution before it starts unwinding the program. "Now we have a compelling reason, a timely reason" to act, said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. The last full-scale effort to tackle the issue came in 2013, when the Senate passed a bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform bill that included provisions for Dreamers. The bill stalled in the Republican-controlled House over GOP divisions on immigration.

UNIVERSITIES REAFFIRM SUPPORT FOR UNDOCUMENTED STUDENTS / HOLLY EPSTEIN OJALVO / USA TODAY
Numerous universities are issuing new statements in support of undocumented students in the wake of the Trump administration announcing that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, created five years ago by President Obama, would end in six months unless Congress takes action. Many higher Ed institutions had previously made moves to support undocumented students and the DACA program itself. Here are some of the new statements. The university put out this statement over the signatures of Chancellor Carol Christ and two other administrators: “We are heartbroken for our undocumented immigrant communities. These communities include many of our students and families, who made the difficult decision to migrate here in pursuit of economic and educational opportunity;

WITH NEWS OF DACA'S END, UCLA STUDENT DECLARES HERSELF 'UNDOCUMENTED AND UNAFRAID' / TERESA WATANABE / LOS ANGELES TIMES
At 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, Yael Pineda gathered with about a dozen others at the UCLA Labor Center to watch a Livestream of the Trump administration's announcement on whether it would extend protections for nearly 800,000 young immigrants like herself. When U.S. Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions announced the government would rescind the Obama-era policy known as DACA that has deferred deportation proceedings and let these immigrants study and work, the room went dead silent, Pineda said. "There was disbelief at the way Jeff Sessions was framing it – that we take jobs, that we're criminals," said the 22-year-old, who is on track to graduate from UCLA this month in psychology and labor and workplace studies. But as the news sank in, Pineda said, another sentiment surfaced: a determination to reject fear and unite with others to press Congress to extend the protections.

IN NIGHTTIME TWEET, TRUMP OFFERS MIXED MESSAGE ON IMMIGRATION / PETER BAKER / THE NEW YORK TIMES
In his seven months in office, President Trump has proved to be the commander in chief of mixed messages. But even for him, the nighttime tweet on Tuesday was a head-turner. Earlier in the day, Mr. Trump had scrapped his predecessor’s program sparing younger illegal immigrants from deportation on the grounds that a president does not have the power to take such action by himself. He then put the onus on Congress by giving it a six-month deadline to “fix” the program before it would expire. Then, barely eight hours after his decision was announced, the president went on Twitter with a message that completely undercut both positions in just under 140 characters.

IMMIGRANT FARMWORKERS IN DANGER OF BEING DEPORTED, CALIFORNIA LAWMAKER SAYS / ANGELA HART / SACRAMENTO BEE
A day after the Trump administration announced it would end an Obama-era program shielding “Dreamers” from deportation, Assemblyman David Chiu, D-San Francisco, is pressuring state lawmakers to help immigrant laborers he says also face “increasing danger.” Assembly Bill 450, the “Immigrant Worker Protection Act,” would bar immigration officials from conducting workplace raids without a warrant and prevent employers from disclosing employees’ privacy information, such as a social security number or their immigration status, without an order from the courts. “In an environment of division and fear, California must continue to defend its workers, to guard its values and to ensure that its laws protect all of our residents,” Chiu said in a statement last week.

YOUNG IMMIGRANT IN DOCUMENTARY HAS MORE THAN DREAMS ON HIS SIDE / USA TODAY
Jose Anzaldo has dreams, and he has probability on his side. That may not seem obvious, but you can ask his mother, who works long hours in the fields of "the world's salad bowl." You can ask his teacher, a son of farmworkers who must see in Jose some reflection of his own childhood. You can ask anyone who's seen this kid do math. Jose, 14, is many things. He's a high school freshman who smiles easily, plans to be an engineer and seems to see the best in every situation. He's an undocumented child of undocumented Mexican parents, not a citizen like his three siblings. And because of that he is, increasingly, a symbol of something larger — the nationwide debate over immigration, the changing rhetoric and politics of a new administration, the plan announced Tuesday to wind down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program initiated by former president Barack Obama.

MEXICAN VOLUNTEERS CROSS BORDER TO AID TEXAS AFTER HURRICANE HARVEY / RUTHY MUNOZ / REUTERS
Mexico has come to the aid of the United States following Hurricane Harvey, sending Red Cross volunteers, food and supplies to a country whose president has proposed building a wall to keep the two neighbors apart. Mexican volunteers wearing white vests labeled “Cruz Roja Mexicana” are distributing food and lending a sympathetic ear to some of the 1,800 storm refugees at the George R. Brown Convention Center, a temporary shelter. A caravan of Mexican storm relief was due to be shipped north for victims of a storm that has killed some 60 people and left tens of thousands homeless since first coming ashore Aug. 25. “We all know that there are some agreements and disagreements between governments, but for the Mexican Red Cross and the volunteers from the Mexican Red Cross, we are more than glad to be helpful and do some stuff to help people,” said Gustavo Santillan, one of the Mexican Red Cross volunteers.

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WORKS TO CLARIFY IMMIGRATION POLICIES FOR PUBLIC / MICHELLE ZILIO / THE GLOBE AND MAIL
The federal government is laying the groundwork for an attempt to dissuade more diaspora groups in the United States from fleeing to Canada, replicating a recent outreach effort to dispel rumours that drew thousands of Haitian asylum seekers in recent months. Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen's office said the Liberal government will target more communities in the United States in an effort to set the record straight about Canada's immigration policies and counter any notion that entering irregularly is a free ticket into the country. The outreach, which will take place over the coming weeks, will also include "multilingual communities" in Canada, spokesman Hursh Jaswal said. "We are taking a number of pro-active measures – both in Canada and abroad – to counter misinformation that has been circulating and ensure that everyone is aware of the facts about Canada's asylum system," Mr. Jaswal said in a statement on Tuesday.

GERMAN ANTI-IMMIGRANT CANDIDATE WALKS OUT OF TV DEBATE / REUTERS
One of the top candidates for the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) party in this month’s election walked out of a live television debate on Tuesday night after being accused of failing to distance herself from right-wingers. The right-wing AfD has gained support by slamming Chancellor Angela Merkel’s 2015 decision to open the borders to refugees and is set to enter the national parliament for the first time after the Sept. 24 election. Polls put it on 7-11 percent. Alice Weidel, 38, collected her papers and rushed out of public broadcaster ZDF’s studio during a debate with Germany’s six other major parties after Andreas Scheuer, a member of Merkel’s conservative bloc, said she should distance herself from far-right figures in the AfD.

BRITAIN SAYS TO PURSUE BALANCED POST-BREXIT IMMIGRATION POLICY / REUTERS
Britain will pursue a balanced policy on immigration once it has left the European Union by seeking to attract high-skilled workers while driving the overall numbers down, Defense Secretary Michael Fallon said on Wednesday. The Guardian newspaper published a leaked government document late on Tuesday detailing plans to drive down the number of lower-skilled EU workers coming to Britain once it has left the EU in 2019. ”We’ll set out firm proposals later in the year, “Fallon told Sky News.”There is a balance to be struck, we want to attract to this country, not shut the door, on highly skilled people who want to come here and make a contribution to our society. ”Equally we have to make sure that British companies are also prepared to train and train up British workers. The public are very clear, they want to see immigration not stopped but brought properly under control.

LOI SUR L’IMMIGRATION : MACRON ANNONCE UNE « REFONDATION COMPLETE » / LE MONDE
Devant le corps préfectoral qu’il a réuni mardi 5 septembre à l’Elysée, le président de la République, Emmanuel Macron, a annoncé une « refondation complète » de la politique d’immigration et prôné un cap de fermeté pour la future loi qu’il veut voir bouclée début 2018. Les enjeux sont élevés pour ce texte dont une première mouture est attendue à l’automne. « Si nous n’agissons pas pour refonder » cette politique, « c’est le consensus républicain autour de notre tradition d’accueil et d’asile qui est remis en cause » et « les seuls gagnants sont les extrêmes », a-t-il averti. Concernant la question de l’asile, le président a répété sa volonté de réduire à six mois le délai d’instruction des demandes.

LEAKED IMMIGRATION PLANS 'CATASTROPHIC' FOR INDUSTRY, SAY EMPLOYERS / RICHARD PARTINGTON AND ANGELA MONAGHAN / THE GUARDIAN
Britain’s blueprint for a post-Brexit immigration policy, outlined in leaked Home Office documents, would be “catastrophic” for some industries, employers have warned. European Union nationals make up about 7% of the overall UK workforce – about 2.2 million workers – with some sub-sectors of the economy reliant on migrants, official figures show. EU workers constitute more than 20% of the labour force in at least 18 specialist industries, according to a GMB study of Office for National Statistics figures. The hotels, retail and hospitality industry, which draws about 9% of its workforce from the EU but is far more reliant for lower-paid jobs than the headline figure might suggest, stands to lose out from the reforms, said Ufi Ibrahim, chief executive of the British Hospitality Association.
