DACA ANNOUNCEMENT SPURS RUSH FOR HELP AT MEXICAN CONSULATE / SHIRIN RAJAEE / KGNS TV
The decision to end a program geared toward the children of immigrants has prompted protests around the country and heightened fear among the undocumented community. The Mexican Consulate in Sacramento held a workshop to help ease those fears Wednesday night in Natomas a day after the Trump administration proposed sunsetting provisions in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Since Tuesday’s announcement, the consulate has been inundated with calls and concerns- and the workshop was about providing some answers. “The immediate priority is to provide legal advice as to what the process means,” said Liliana Ferrer, Consul General of Mexico in Sacramento.

COLLEGE PRESIDENTS, ADVOCATES URGE CONGRESS FOR DACA REPLACEMENT; MEXICAN CONSULATE OFFERS HELP / BEN LOCKHART AND MARJORIE CORTEZ / DESERET NEWS
The presidents of Utah’s eight public colleges and universities, along with the state Commissioner of Higher Education , called on Utah’s congressional delegation Wednesday to “pursue a lasting, long-term solution” to immigration policies that allow “all students to be able to realize their dreams." (…) Consulate offers help. The Mexican Consulate in Salt Lake City, an official diplomatic body from that country, said in a statement Wednesday that Mexican leaders are disappointed by Sessions' announcement. "Mexico deeply regrets the decision taken by the U.S. administration to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals," the consulate said.

MEXICO WILL OFFER EDUCATION, JOB HELP, LANGUAGE LESSONS TO DACA RECIPIENTS / CHRIS HAIRE / ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER
If you grew up in, say, Long Beach, and were told you need to move to, say, Mexico City, how would you go about it? Some version of that question is being fielded this week by officials at the Mexican consulate in Santa Ana, as young Mexican nationals who have been protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program call for information in the wake of the Trump administration’s move to sunset DACA over the next six months. What the callers learned was that Mexico will offer help — in housing and job placement and even Spanish language lessons — even as the Mexican government lobbies the U.S. Congress on behalf of young people they consider all but officially American. “The central message is let’s hope the best is going to come, but let’s get ready for the worst,” said Mario Cuevas, the Mexican consular in Orange County.

IMMIGRANTS IN CENTRAL ILLINOIS TO DACA REPEAL / ALYSSA PALDO / CENTRAL ILLINOIS PROUD
800,000 people are now living with uncertainty after the repeal of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA program. As members of congress vow to work to put new legislation in place, dreamers in the United States and central Illinois await answers. About 7,000 people make up Peoria County's Hispanic community. All of them got here at different times and under different circumstances, but they all came for similar reasons, which they hope can continue. "In 1986, I was a dreamer." Cesar Vargas says. (…) The First United Methodist Church hosts the Mexican consulate several times a year to accommodate the needs of its population. As that population grows, Cesar's brother will soon open a center to celebrate Hispanic art and culture in the Warehouse District.

LOCAL HELP FOR DACA RECIPIENTS / GREGORY WOODS / YOUR CENTRAL VALLEY
Thousands of undocumented youth are uncertain about their future after the announcement that DACA (Deferred Action for Early Childhood Arrivals) will be repealed. The program gave young people brought here illegally by their parent’s temporary relief from deportation. (…) Lawyer Lazaro Salazar says this is the perfect time for Mexican nationals to take advantage of the free legal advice the Mexican Consulate holds every Tuesday and Wednesday. "From nine to one o'clock there is no appointment needed and no fee and if takes five minutes to resolve, great, if takes one hour, it doesn't matter we will sit there and help them," said Salazar.

IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY: NOT ALL DACA RECIPIENTS CAN GET LEGAL CITIZENSHIP / ALICIA NEAVES / KENS
The program that protects the children of undocumented immigrants from deportation is over. Tuesday, President Trump tweeted, "Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do). If they can't, I will revisit this issue!" So now what happens? Congress has six months to act to potentially make these DACA protections a law. If not, DACA recipients will begin losing their status March 5, 2018. So can these immigrants just go through the process to become legal? Attorneys tell us it's not that easy. (…) The Mexican Consulate estimates 13,000 DACA recipients in San Antonio. Each receives a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit.

BUSCA EU ABLANDAR A MÉXICO CON CANCELACIÓN DEL DACA: ASTUDILLO / JOSÉ FRANCISCO ZORROZA / EL SOL DE MÉXICO
El gobernador Héctor Astudillo Flores atribuyó la cancelación del DACA, que protegía a unos 600 mil jóvenes mexicanos indocumentados radicados en Estados Unidos, a las acciones definidas por el gobierno estadounidense de Donald Trump para ablandar al gobierno de México en el marco de las negociaciones del Tratado de Libre Comercio (TLC).

RECIBEN MIGRANTES SERVICIOS DE SALUD / EMMA TREVIÑO / EL MAÑANA
A diario en la Casa del Migrante Nazareth llegan a recibir más de 80 migrantes mexicanos y extranjero, la gran mayoría llegan hambrientos, enfermos y destrozados, incluso algunos con problemas de salud mental y no hay quién les brinde una consulta médica al instante, porque no cuentan con un médico fijo.

CREAR START UP CON FONDOS MIGRANTES ES UNA OPCIÓN PARA DREAMERS / MILENIO
Guanajuato tiene el potencial para generar start up fondeadas con remesas “y atacar un problema social en dos frentes: revertir la migración así como fortalecer el emprendurismo”, manifestó el profesor académico Gilberto López Alonzo. Luego que el presidente de los Estados Unidos Donald Trump solicitara la eliminación del programa Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA por sus siglas en inglés), López Alfonso mencionó que es momento de poner ojo a los recursos que envían los migrantes a sus familias en Guanajuato y que, en su gran mayoría, se utilizan para el consumo diario y “muy pocas veces en ahorros”.

WHY TRUMP'S IMMIGRATION GAMBIT WILL LIKELY BACKFIRE / THE ATLANTIC
The president’s attempt to pressure Democrats using the status of those brought to the U.S. illegally as children may not turn out as he intended. President Trump may have hoped to increase pressure on congressional Democrats to accept other hardline elements of his immigration agenda this week by rescinding the program that has protected from deportation about 800,000 “Dreamers,” young people brought to the country illegally by their parents. But it’s more likely Trump has triggered a process that will divide Republicans, further estrange him from the business community, and ultimately paralyze Congress, placing the issue of how to handle the “Dreamers” squarely back on his desk when his six-month deadline expires.

BEYOND DREAMERS, THE U.S. NEEDS A MORAL IMMIGRATION POLICY / JERRY LARGE / THE SEATTLE NEWS
Immigration policy is a hard challenge for the United States, where our ideals conflict with our worst instincts so that a fair, comprehensive solution keeps eluding us. Deferred action is what we get. How many elections have come and gone with promises of immigration reform? Here we are again dealing with one piece of the immigration dilemma at issue, a temporary solution for one group, arrived at by presidential action rather than by changes in the law. What one president did with a signature, another can undo with a signature. President Trump has put a time limit on former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). If Congress doesn’t adopt a legislative solution in six months, Trump will start phasing out the program.

WHITE HOUSE CLAIMS ‘DREAMERS’ TAKE JOBS AWAY FROM BLACKS AND HISPANICS. HERE’S THE TRUTH / TRACY JAN / THE WASHINGTON POST
It’s a long-running talking point spouted by Trump administration members and the president himself: Undocumented immigrants are taking jobs away from black and Hispanic Americans. Hours after President Trump dismantled an Obama-era program that had granted 800,000 young undocumented immigrant’s permission to live and work in the United States, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders again made the claim. “It's a known fact that there are over 4 million unemployed Americans in the same age group as those that are DACA recipients; that over 950,000 of those are African Americans in the same age group; over 870,000 unemployed Hispanics in the same age group,” Sanders said during Tuesday’s press briefing.

AFTER 'A DARK DAY,' IMMIGRANT RIGHTS ADVOCATES RALLY IN SACRAMENTO TO FIGHT FOR WORKPLACE PROTECTIONS FROM ICE RAIDS / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Immigrant rights advocates shared stories Wednesday of workers left in the lurch after President Trump's decision to rescind a program that offered temporary immigration relief for thousands of people brought into the country illegally as children. But members of the Service Employees International Union and allied employers vowed to continue their fight to protect immigrant workers without legal residency. Dozens gathered in Sacramento in support of a state bill that would prohibit employers from allowing federal immigration officials to enter non-public areas of a work site without a warrant.

Marchers walking from De Anza Park north of downtown Wednesday to city hall united about 600 to rally in support of immigrant youth and their families. The rally, which lasted about two hours outdoors at city hall, had protestors holding signs, including: "Immigrants Welcome" and "One Race! Human!" Speakers called on demonstrators to defend DACA and end the separation of families. They also chanted "no border wall" and "sanctuary city now." Speaker Najima Rainey strongly called for the city council to make Tucson a sanctuary city, saying council members did not deliver on making it so.

STEVE BANNON: CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS 'ECONOMIC INTEREST' IN 'UNLIMITED ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION' / ANNA GIARITELLI / THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER
Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, a devout Catholic, said the Catholic Church opposes President Trump's decision to wind down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program because illegal immigrants help fill pews in the U.S. "The Catholic Church has been terrible about this [DACA]. The bishops have been terrible about this," Bannon told CBS "This Morning" in an interview that aired Thursday. Most of the DACA recipients were from Central and South American countries where Catholicism is the most popular religion, though it's unknown how many of the 800,000 recipients were catholic.

THE IMMIGRATION MORASS / DANIEL HENNINGER / THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
Immigration is becoming a deadweight loss by the day for the Republican Party. After the Mayflower landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620, ships of people kept coming from Europe. As a result of this uncontrolled influx, the region’s native tribes voted unanimously to pass the Immigration Control Act of 1632. As we know, it didn’t work. Fast-forward 354 years and the tribal council known as the U.S. Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. That one didn’t work either.

TWO EXPLORATIONS OF THE POWER AND PROMINENCE OF LATINO ART: 'ANNA MARIA MAIOLINO' AND 'CARLOS ALMARAZ' / CHRISTOPHER KNIGHT / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Two artists’ retrospective exhibitions, one at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the other at the Museum of Contemporary Art, demonstrate something of the breadth we might expect from Pacific Standard Time: L.A. /L.A., at least for contemporary art. The Getty-subsidized behemoth of more than 80 exhibitions at more than 60 venues around Southern California, set to formally launch on Sept. 15, will offer Latin American and Latino art, ancient to Modern, on an unprecedented scale. That’s fitting for Los Angeles, given the Latino plurality of the population that emerged for California three years ago.

IN CANADA, AN IMMIGRATION MINISTER WHO HIMSELF IS A REFUGEE / CATHERINE PORTER / THE NEW YORK TIMES
He arrived in Toronto, an exhausted 16-year-old, carrying nothing but a small gym bag packed with a change of clothes. As a Somali, he applied for asylum and was jettisoned into adulthood. He registered for high school, learned to cook and landed his first job all on his own. Over the next 25 years, he put himself through college and law school, worked his way up from pouring coffee to advising one of the country’s most powerful leaders and was elected the first Somali-Canadian Member of Parliament. Last January, he set another milestone for refugees to Canada: Ahmed Hussen was named the country’s immigration czar, the first refugee in that powerful cabinet position. Yet Mr. Hussen has rarely talked about this journey.

«DREAMERS» : UNE VAGUE D'IMMIGRATION VERS LE CANADA EST PEU PROBABLE / STEPHANIE MARIN / LA PRESSE
La fin annoncée du programme américain qui protégeait de la déportation des centaines de milliers de «Dreamers» va-t-elle provoquer une autre vague de gens cherchant à entrer au Canada comme ce fut le cas cet été avec les Haïtiens résidant aux États-Unis? C'est peu probable, même si certains pourraient quand même essayer, évalue une professeure spécialisée en immigration au Québec et au Canada, Michèle Vatz-Laaroussi. Depuis le début de l'été, quelques milliers de personnes en provenance des États-Unis ont demandé l'asile au Canada, après avoir franchi la frontière de façon irrégulière. Parmi eux, une majorité d'Haïtiens vivant en sol américain depuis quelques années, en vertu d'un statut de protection spécial.

TRUMP DEMANTELE LE PROGRAMME DACA, LES MEXICAINS REAGISSENT / PATRICK JOHN BUFFE / RFI
Les Mexicains, de manière unanime, condamnent l’annulation du programme DACA. Quant au gouvernement, il a immédiatement réagi en déclarant qu’il « regrette profondément » cette décision qui « affecte des milliers de jeunes nés au Mexique et qui vivent aux Etats-Unis depuis leur enfance ». Il faut savoir que sur 800 000 « dreamers » (« rêveurs ») qui bénéficient depuis cinq ans de ce programme mis en place par Barack Obama, 625 000 sont Mexicains. Aujourd’hui, leur sort est désormais plus qu’incertain, puisque leur statut légal, qui leur permettait jusqu’à maintenant d'étudier et de travailler sans problème, devrait être suspendu une fois arrivé à expiration. Les autorités mexicaines en discussion avec le pouvoir législatif américain.

WHY IMMIGRATION DEBATE IS FAR FROM OVER / LAURA KUENSSBERG / BBC NEWS
The prime minister has at least two big reasons for wanting to get this right. For Theresa May, the referendum result was a clear instruction from the British people that they wanted to reduce the levels of immigration. Politically, therefore, she believes it's a demand she has to meet. And as home secretary for six years, when the government continually flunked its own immigration target, the new system that will control immigration is finally, perhaps, a chance to meet her own long-missed goal. So Wednesday's mega-leak from the Home Office of the potential design of the post Brexit system is significant. Many of the proposals in it are not a surprise - the requirement for EU citizens who want to move to the UK long term after Brexit to register with the authorities, for example.

CET ARTISTE MEXICAIN UTILISE LA TECHNIQUE DES PIÑATAS POUR CREER DES ŒUVRES MONUMENTALES / JANILA CASTANEDA / KONBINI
Quand on entend le mot "piñata", on pense plutôt à des enfants frappant comme des furies sur un monstre en papier mâché qu’à une œuvre d’art dans un musée. Pourtant, c’est par le biais de l’art que Justin Favela a trouvé un moyen de diffuser la culture et la technique complexe qui se nichent dans cet objet de fête. Ce natif de Las Vegas a décidé de rendre hommage au sang guatémaltèque et mexicain qui coule dans ses veines et d’exprimer son identité multiple avec ses œuvres: "Les piñatas sont un symbole de 'mexicanité'." Si certains pourraient être tentés de voir là un nouvel exemple d’emprunt aux cultures populaires par le monde de l’art contemporain, Justin Favela explique au Los Angeles Times qu’il s’agit pour lui d’offrir une visibilité à la culture latino.
