En su gira de trabajo por California, el secretario de Relaciones Exteriores, Luis Videgaray, aseguró ante un grupo de dreamers reunidos en el Consulado de México en Sacramento que ante la cancelación del programa Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA), el gobierno mexicano proveerá protección consular, asesoría legal y representación jurídica. “Un eventual regreso a México de jóvenes DACA sería un gran regalo para nuestro país y una importante pérdida para Estados Unidos, ya que se trata de un grupo con alto nivel de educación (principalmente universitaria), talento, creatividad y energía”, destacó.

CANCILLER MEXICANO VA A EU POR "DREAMERS" / MISAEL ZAVALA / EL UNIVERSAL
El secretario de Relaciones Exteriores de México, Luis Videgaray, inició ayer una gira de trabajo de tres días por Estados Unidos para desarrollar la estrategia del gobierno para la defensa de los dreamers mexicanos. El canciller inició su viaje en Sacramento, la capital de California, donde se reunió con jóvenes beneficiarios del Programa de Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA, por sus siglas en inglés). Esto a una semana de que el gobierno de EU cancelara el plan que protege de la deportación a unos 800 mil indocumentados. “Confiamos firmemente en que el Congreso actuará de forma correcta para proveerles una solución jurídica permanente”, les dijo durante el encuentro, que tuvo lugar en el Consulado de México en Sacramento.

DREAMERS … RETOS Y OPORTUNIDADES / EL UNIVERSAL
La derogación del Programa DACA en Estados Unidos; la cual afecta principalmente a los llamados dreamers (estudiantes migrantes), suma un elemento más de incertidumbre y presión en la relación entre México y ese país. Aunque aún falta la aprobación del Congreso, las alertas se han encendido y estamos con las manos en la puerta para llevar a cabo una repatriación inteligente, como lo han hecho otros países (i.e. la India, donde gobierno e IP trabajan hacia la inclusión). En un contexto de modernización del TLCAN, con la derogación del programa DACA la migración vuelve a surgir como un tema relevante, ya que involucra aspectos como el empleo, la educación, las remesas, los derechos humanos y la seguridad nacional, entre otros.

ACUSA ONU A EU DE VIOLAR DERECHOS HUMANOS DE INMIGRANTES / EXCÉLSIOR
El arresto de inmigrantes es utilizado de forma excesiva en Estados Unidos y carece de bases legítimas, dijo hoy el Grupo de Trabajo de la ONU sobre Detenciones Arbitrarias, que pidió a Washington que garantice el respeto a los derechos humanos en esta situación. Según cifras oficiales, al menos 352 mil personas son detenidas cada año en Estados Unidos mientras se espera el resultado de sus procedimientos migratorios, lo que cuesta aproximadamente 2 mil millones de dólares a los contribuyentes.

MEXICO DIPLOMAT TALKS IMMIGRATION IN CALIFORNIA TRIP / KATHLEEN RONAYNE AND AMY TAXIN / STAR TRIBUNE
After a day huddling in California's capital on immigration, trade and climate, Mexico's top diplomat is hitting Los Angeles to close out a two-day visit to the immigrant-friendly state. Mexico Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Videgaray's trip to California comes at a critical time in relations between his country and the United States and amid uncertainty over the future of a program that protects roughly 800,000 young immigrants who are living in the United States from deportation. In Los Angeles, Videgaray will announce support for those young immigrants — hundreds of thousands of whom are Mexican. He'll also meet with community and business leaders and tout a program providing immigrant mental health services.

BATTLE OVER TRUMP'S IMMIGRATION TRAVEL BAN ESCALATES / RICHARD WOLF / USA TODAY
The battle over President Trump's effort to ban travelers from six predominantly Muslim nations and thousands of international refugees from around the world escalated Monday on two fronts. With a Supreme Court showdown less than a month away, lawyers for immigrant rights groups told the justices that the temporary travel ban's intent is to block Muslims from entering the United States, which violates the Constitution. "Plaintiffs and the rest of the country cannot close their eyes to the president’s condemnation of Islam; this Court should not either," the American Civil Liberties Union argued in court papers.

CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR AGREES TO IMMIGRANT PROTECTIONS / DON THOMPSON AND JONATHAN J. COOPER / THE WASHINGTON POST

Jerry Brown and the state Senate leader said Monday they’ve agreed to changes in proposed legislation that would further restrict interactions between law enforcement officers and federal immigration agents.

TRUMP AND DACA: DON’T FORGET ABOUT IMMIGRANT VETERANS BEING DEPORTED / J. MALCOLM GARCIA / THE NEWS WEEK
With some Republicans and Democrats lining up to pass a legislative version of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals)—the Obama-era program that protects young children of immigrants from deportation—many are forgetting about a group now more at risk due to the Trump administration’s policies: veterans. Though many don’t know it, hundreds of immigrants—most from Mexico and the Philippines—serve in our nation’s armed forces. None are promised citizenship in exchange for their service. On the contrary, when the government is done with them, they are subjected to the same risk of deportation as new arrivals sneaking across the border.

UNDOCUMENTED ASIAN IMMIGRANTS EYE DACA FUTURE / KATE SULLIVAN / CNN
Agnes Lee, 22, is a Korean-born corporate banker working for a huge US financial firm on Wall Street. She is also an undocumented immigrant and a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals participant. Lee's family came to the United States from Seoul when she was two years old. People don't expect her to be undocumented, she said, because, "I'm college-educated, I speak English, I kind of have this weird crossover Valley girl accent just being from Los Angeles, and I'm Korean." President Donald Trump recently announced that DACA, which protects 690,000 undocumented immigrants who were minors when their families brought them to the United States from deportation, would end in six months.

FULL STEM AHEAD ON LATINO STUDENTS / ANTONIO TIJERINO / SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
As 1.3 million science advocates participated in March For Science rallies across the globe — including 1,700 in San Antonio — the real movement should be to encourage more youth to enter science careers as well as technology, engineering and math fields in the U.S. It’s critical to the innovative spirit, growth and, yes, security of our country. Among those at the Science March in San Antonio was Jackson Antonio Alexander Garcia, who attended Brandeis High School and is now an engineering major at the University of Texas at San Antonio. “Growing up in a Hispanic household taught me perseverance through tough obstacles. That’s a trademark of our community. The path to a career in engineering wasn’t always easy, but focusing on my goals and never having quitting as an option got me to where I am, but there’s more work to do,” said Garcia.

CITY: IMMIGRATION RULES COULD LEAD TO OTHER STRINGS FROM TRUMP TO GET FEDERAL MONEY / JOHN BYRNE / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
The Donald Trump administration's rules requiring cities to cooperate with immigration agents in order to get a public safety grant could lead to other strings on federal money tied to administration priorities, a city attorney argued Monday in the court fight between Mayor Rahm Emanuel and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Judge Harry Leinenweber heard arguments in the city's bid to block the new standards governing Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grants from taking effect across the country. The Justice Department wants to require so-called sanctuary cities to give notice when immigrants in the country illegally are about to be released from custody and allow immigration agents access to local jails.

UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS SHOULD NOT HAVE TO RISK DEPORTATION FOR TALKING TO POLICE / KEVIN R. JOHNSON / SACRAMENTO BEE
In 2015, the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department released an undocumented immigrant as required by local ordinance. He later allegedly murdered Kate Steinle. This undeniable tragedy stirred a national controversy over “sanctuary laws.” But many state and local governments had similar laws and policies that require the release of noncitizens from custody in the absence of a federal warrant. The Los Angeles Police Department, among others, limits police inquiry into the immigration status of crime victims, witnesses and suspects, a policy that dates to the late police Chief Daryl Gates’ tenure in 1979. The basis for such policies stems from an important principle: effective law enforcement requires trust of all residents, including immigrants.
