MEXICAN CONSULATE OFFERING LEGAL HELP TO DACA RECIPIENTS / KFOX TV
The Mexican Consulate in El Paso will help pay for the renewal of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals paperwork, according to Marcos Bucio, Mexico’s consul general in El Paso. Bucio said the service is being offered to DACA recipients with low income. “Many (DACA recipients) have been working. The truth is they’ve been an asset, not a burden to the United States,” Bucio said. The consul’s effort to help DACA recipients pay for the renewal of the permits comes after the Trump Administration announced Tuesday that the Obama-era program would be phased out. Bucio estimates there are nearly 1,000 DACA recipients in El Paso. “Talk to your consulate. Don’t be afraid,” Bucio said. While Congress has the daunting task of coming up with a replacement for DACA, the Mexican consulate is writing letters to local representatives, asking them to consider the contributions of DACA recipients.

CONSULATE TO STEP UP OUTREACH AFTER DACA DECISION / NOGALES INTERNATIONAL
The Mexican Consulate in Nogales said it is “ready to receive all people who need information” after the Trump administration announced its plan to “wind down” the DACA deferred deportation program over the next six months. “Our program of immigration assessments workshops, in which people can learn if they are eligible for immigration relief or adjustment, will be strengthened,” Consul Ricardo Santana Velázquez said in a news release issued Wednesday. Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday announced President Trump’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program constructed under the Obama Administration. Sessions said there would be a wind-down process, where no new DACA applications would be accepted, to give Congress a chance to pass related legislation “should it so choose.” That period will last six months.

TEXAS LIMITS MEXICO HARVEY AID TO MOBILE KITCHENS / ALFREDO CORCHADO AND EVA-MARIE AYALA / THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS
Texas is limiting hurricane aid from Mexico to community and mobile field kitchens, far from the “Katrina-like” assistance that the state's southern neighbor had originally offered. The aid, which will include the deployment of some civil servants and members of the military, may not arrive until this weekend, officials said. The aid is limited to 30 days, unless Texas and Mexico agree more time is needed. The aid is likely be distributed through mobile kitchens to shelters throughout Texas, including the Houston area, Austin, San Antonio and Dallas, and is coming after the state assessed its needs, said Sam Taylor, spokesman for the Texas secretary of state. Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez, the Mexican consul general in Austin, said the number of Mexican personnel was still being determined in Mexico City. He said he was still waiting for final details from state emergency officials within Texas’ Department of Public Safety as to where and how the aid will be distributed.

HUNDREDS SEEK A COURSE FORWARD AFTER DACA ANNOUNCEMENT / JOANNE YOUNG LINCOLN JOURNAL STAR
More than 400 DACA youths and supporters filled a small auditorium and two overflow rooms at the College of St. Mary in Omaha Thursday night, seeking the best course of action after President Trump's announcement Tuesday of a possible end to the program. Now that Trump won't be accepting new applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and left it in the hands of Congress to act on it, or allow it to be terminated in six months, there are questions about what to do next. "We see you. We hear you. We welcome you to Nebraska," said speaker Danielle Conrad, executive director of ACLU of Nebraska. (…) Guadalupe Sánchez Salazar, the Mexican consul in Omaha, told the crowd gathered the Mexican government deeply regretted the rescission of the DACA program.

PIDEN CABILDEAR EN EU A FAVOR DE ESTUDIANTES / JUAN ARVIZU Y ALBERTO MORALES / EL UNIVERSAL
México debe cabildear en el Congreso de Estados Unidos para garantizar a los dreamers el respeto a sus derechos humanos y el estatus migratorio de permanencia en aquel país, a quienes deseen residir y trabajar en aquel país, señalaron senadores del PRI, PAN, PRD y PT en el Senado. Estuvieron de acuerdo con el rector de la UNAM, Enrique Graue, en que México no está preparado para responder al retorno, eventualmente, de más de 600 mil mexicanos que lograron la protección del programa DACA por su brillante trayectoria académica y que ahora tienen el amago de la deportación.

ZUCKERBERG SE REÚNE CON "DREAMERS" EN SU CASA / EL UNIVERSAL
El fundador de Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, quien ha sido una de las voces más fuertes contra la anulación del programa de Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA), ratificó su compromiso con los dreamers invitando a tres de ellos a su casa y transmitiendo el encuentro a través de Facebook Live. A la cita acudieron Tomás Evangelista, cofundador del colectivo California Dreamers, Leezia Dhalla y María Praeli, quienes trabajan en la iniciativa FWD.us, que promueve la defensa del DACA. Durante la emisión, Zuckerberg criticó la decisión del gobierno de Donald Trump de cancelar el programa. “Ofrecer el sueño americano a la gente, para luego arrebatárselo y castigarlos por confiar en su gobierno y salir de las sombras a fin de hacer un pedido para alcanzarlo, es una de las cosas más problemáticas que he visto en nuestro país en mucho tiempo”, señaló.

"DREAMERS": CON HAMBRE... Y ESPERANZAS / VÍCTOR SANCHO / EL UNIVERSAL
Misael lleva barba a lo Abraham Lincoln, sin bigote y medio despeinada, y sentado en una silla de plástico rojo podría ser la versión del siglo XXI de la famosa estatua que hay en el centro de Washington. Tiene la cara alargada y está flaquísimo: quizá ha perdido algunos kilos por la huelga de hambre que lleva haciendo desde el martes. El joven de origen mexicano es uno de los 27 soñadores (dreamers) que esta semana, previendo que Donald Trump iba a terminar con el programa DACA que protegía a jóvenes indocumentados como él de la deportación, inició un ayuno voluntario a escasos metros de la puerta principal del Congreso de Estados Unidos.

TRUMP EMBRACES DEMOCRATS AGAIN ON DEBT CEILING AND IMMIGRATION / RICHARD COWAN, SUSAN CORNWELL / REUTERS
President Donald Trump on Thursday embraced a suggestion from the Senate’s top Democrat to end congressional battles over the U.S. debt ceiling, a day after he stunned fellow Republicans by striking a major budget deal with the opposition party. Testing his new opening with Democrats, Trump also reached out on another tricky issue, the fate of 800,000 so-called Dreamers, young adults brought illegally to the country as children. He even honored a request by Nancy Pelosi, the top House of Representatives Democrat, to publicly reassure the Dreamers they do not face imminent deportation. The Senate voted 80-17 to approve the deal Trump reached with Democrats on Wednesday, which would raise the federal debt limit and fund the government through Dec. 8.

REPUBLICANS MAY TRY TO TRADE 'DREAMERS' AMNESTY FOR COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM — BUT IT WON'T WORK / ALEX NOWRASTEH / LOS ANGELES TIMES
When Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions announced the cancellation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program this week, he said that President Trump would give Congress time to legalize the 800,000 undocumented immigrants known as “Dreamers.” Sessions also mentioned that he has “worked closely with many members of Congress, including in the introduction of the RAISE Act,” referring to the Senate bill that, if passed, would slash legal immigration in half. The DACA announcement came two days after Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, a cosponsor of the RAISE Act, told the Washington Examiner that Republicans should “find a way” to give Dreamers legal status, “but we also have to mitigate the inevitable consequences of that action.”

CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS SEEK TO LABEL L.A. A 'SANCTUARY' FOR IMMIGRANTS / DAKOTA SMITH / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Los Angeles city leaders will push Friday to declare the city a “sanctuary” for immigrants, a move that comes after some lawmakers resisted formally using the term despite pressure from local immigration groups. City Council members Herb Wesson and Gil Cedillo plan to unveil a resolution Friday that would formally label Los Angeles either a “city of sanctuary” or a “sanctuary city.” Wesson and Cedillo say they want stronger protections for immigrants after President Trump’s decision this week to scrap the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. DACA, put in place by President Obama, shields young people who were brought into the country illegally as minors from deportation. A study by the nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute found that 1 in 4 DACA participants lives in California.

ALDERMEN PROPOSE PROTECTIONS FOR IMMIGRANT TENANTS / FRAN SPIELMAN / CHICAGO SUN TIMES
Chicago landlords would be required to deadlock front and rear doors and provide access to inside units only to those with a “valid judicial search warrant” under a crackdown aimed at shielding immigrants living in fear of deportation. North Side Aldermen Deb Mell (33rd) and Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35th) joined forces on the latest in a series of efforts aimed at protecting immigrants who suffered yet another body blow this week when President Donald Trump moved to phase out legal protection for 800,000 immigrant children know as Dreamers. Their ordinance introduced at Wednesday’s City Council meeting would essentially declare Chicago apartment buildings as sanctuary buildings off-limits to federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

I WAS SHOCKED TO LEARN I WAS UNDOCUMENTED. AND SHOCKED TO LEARN DACA WAS ENDING / LEEZIA DHALLA / THE WASHINGTON POST
Five years ago, I was sitting at my college graduation ceremony, undocumented, uncertain what my future would look like and how I would continue contributing to the country where I grew up. I was 22 and paralyzed by the prospect of graduating into a world where I had no work permit and, thus, no ability to give back to my community. I’d been feeling that anxiety escalate for the previous year and a half, when I first found out about my undocumented status. I learned I was “less than legal” during my junior year at Northwestern University, when I received a letter in the mail from the Department of Homeland Security. It was a Notice to Appear in immigration court, the first step in the deportation process. The letter revealed that I had unknowingly overstayed my visa and was now subject to eviction from the country I consider home.

REFUGIES ET REGLES D'IMMIGRATION: TRUDEAU NE VOIT PAS DE CONTRADICTION / JOAN BRYDEN / LA PRESSE CANADIENNE
Justin Trudeau ne voit aucune contradiction à promouvoir l'accueil de réfugiés ou d'immigrants, en même temps que de vouloir freiner l'arrivée d'une autre vague migratoire irrégulière à la frontière canado-américaine. Le premier ministre a déclaré jeudi que l'ouverture aux réfugiés allait de pair avec le respect des règles en matière d'immigration. Les Canadiens sont aussi accueillants justement parce qu'ils ont confiance en l'intégrité du système d'immigration, a-t-il argué jeudi, lors de la conférence de clôture du caucus libéral à Kelowna, en Colombie-Britannique. Les questions d'immigration risquent d'être à l'avant-plan au Parlement, alors qu'une nouvelle vague de demandeurs d'asile a afflué à la frontière canadienne, cet été.
