MEXICAN OFFICIALS VISIT LA TO PROMOTE JOBS, SERVICES FOR DREAMERS / ANABEL MUNOZ / ABC 7
Secretary of Foreign Affairs of Mexico Luis Videgaray Caso on Tuesday made his first visit to Los Angeles, where he joined Mexican officials for the inauguration of a mental health hub and the announcement of services for DREAMers in the U.S. and in Mexico. As part of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto's initiative titled "Somos Mexicanos" or "We are Mexican," officials discussed new job programs for DREAMers and other undocumented immigrants returning to Mexico. (…) "What we have said is that young people in the DACA program add a tremendous value to the U.S. These are young people (who are) talented, well-educated -- most of them with a college education and with a bright future in the U.S.," said Videgaray. With an Oct. 5 deadline nearing, the consulate general of Mexico in L.A. will also offer free help for DACA recipients looking to renew their permits.

UTAH LAWYERS OFFERING FREE LEGAL ADVICE TO DACA RECIPIENTS / CHRISTOPHER SMART / SLTRIB
With the clock ticking, the Mexican Consulate in Salt Lake City is providing free legal services to Dreamers — people who came to the U.S. as children — seeking to renew their status by Oct. 5. The deadline is the outcome of President Donald Trump’s decision to cancel the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program within six months. Consul José Borjón said the government of Mexico will pay the legal expenses for people who want to renew their DACA status. The Dreamers, he said, are immigrants who have lived and worked and served in the military in the United States. They identify with this culture and think of themselves as Americans.

CHILDHOOD IMMIGRATION PROGRAM GETS VOTE OF SUPPORT FROM COUNTY BOARD / KATHLEEN WILSON / VENTURA COUNTY STAR
Ventura County supervisors called on Congress on Tuesday to protect immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and are now threatened with deportation. Voting 4-1, the Ventura County Board of Supervisors supported legislation on behalf of immigrants who enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program. President Donald Trump announced last week that he would phase out the program in six months unless Congress rescues it. (…) About a dozen people spoke at the supervisors' meeting, all of them in support. Included were county residents who have benefited from DACA, aides to state and federal legislators, representatives of the Mexican consulate and advocacy groups for Latino residents and indigenous people.

"SUEÑO AMERICANO" SE HA CONVERTIDO EN UNA PESADILLA, DICE PRESIDENTE DE LA SCJN / DIANA LASTIRI / EL UNIVERSAL
Las nuevas restricciones migratorias implementadas por Estados Unidos se han sustentado en la discriminación y en constantes abusos con base en el idioma y el color de la piel, de tal suerte que el llamado "sueño americano" se convirtió en una pesadilla, afirmó el ministro presidente de la Suprema Corte de Justicia de la Nación (SCJN), Luis María Aguilar Morales. Durante la inauguración de la Tercera Reunión Regional para América Latina y el Caribe de la Asociación Internacional de Mujeres Juezas, reconoció que a pesar de los esfuerzos, en América Latina no ha sido posible superar las brechas de desigualdad económica, principal razón por la que ocurren fenómenos como la migración.

ACTION TO PROTECT YOUNG IMMIGRANTS ALREADY STUMBLES IN CONGRESS / YAMICHE / THE NEW YORK TIMES
A week after concerned Republicans promised quick work to shield young, undocumented immigrants from President Trump’s decision to end their federal protections, lawmakers have tied themselves in knots trying to figure out how to proceed — with only six months to find a way forward. If anything, advocates for immigrants brought to this country as children may have lost ground. Representative Mike Coffman, Republican of Colorado, pulled back a petition he had initiated to force the House to take up legislation to protect so-called Dreamers. A Senate Judiciary Committee hearing into the issue was canceled this week. And Representative Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said he would not move on any such legislation before he addressed criminal alien gangs and border security.

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS HIDING DATA ABOUT HOW ITS CRACKDOWN ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IS GOING / ANA CAMPOY / QUARTZ
For a president who vowed to keep the nation informed about the threats posed by illegal immigration, Donald Trump has been uncharacteristically tight-lipped about what he’s portrayed as a key strategy against it. When undocumented people are jailed for other crimes, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) regularly asks police departments and sheriff’s offices to hold them after their sentences end so its agents can pick them up and deport them. For years, the federal government has seen such requests, or “detainers,” as a way to multiply its limited resources for apprehending the millions of people in the country illegally. The Trump White House has been particularly adamant that cities and counties honor detainers.

PROMINENT LATINO GROUP SNUBS TRUMP / THE BOSTON GLOBE
For the first time in almost 40 years, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute is not inviting a sitting president to its annual convention. The caucus is one of the leading institutions in the development of young Latino leaders and is nonpartisan, though only two of the 25 members of Congress in its advisory council are Republican. Donald Trump upset many Latinos from the start of his candidacy, when he referred to Mexican immigrants as ‘‘criminals.’’ Since becoming president, he decided to phase out the protection from deportation for young immigrants living in the United States illegally who were brought to the country as children. The White House did not reply to a question about the snub.

BALTIMORE AREA SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENTS CALL ON GOVERNOR TO PROTECT UNDOCUMENTED STUDENTS / TALIA RICHMAN AND LIZ BOWIE / THE BALTIMORE SUN
A coalition of Maryland superintendents representing large school districts is asking Gov. Larry Hogan and other elected leaders to protect the rights of undocumented students and their families. In a letter to Hogan and legislators, the leaders of five of the largest school systems in the state said President Donald Trump’s recent announcement that he would discontinue the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, also known as DACA, in six months is having a direct impact on 9,000 undocumented young people in the state. “It is a direct threat to Maryland’s economic stability and safety, as it will strip students of their ability to work and drive legally, pay taxes, and pursue post-secondary opportunities,” states the letter states.

OFFICIALS CONSIDER ANOTHER MEXICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES TEXTBOOK / ALIYYA SWABY / TEXAS TRIBUNE
Protesting a 2010 Arizona law prohibiting ethnic studies in the classroom, advocate and professor Tony Diaz once led a caravan of cars through Arizona that "smuggled" books removed from school shelves into "underground libraries" across the state. Now he's following the letter of the law to get Texas to approve his proposal for the first state-adopted Mexican-American studies textbook, which would be used next school year. "It takes a major publisher with grassroots and major knowledge on the local level to get this through," he said. "We have gone from being librotraficantes [book smugglers], to now we're going to be the publishers." The Texas State Board of Education is hearing public testimony Wednesday on Diaz's book "The Mexican American Studies Toolkit," one of two ethnic studies textbook proposals submitted in response to the board's request last November.

HIS DREAM IN REACH, AN IMMIGRANT CHEF IS SUDDENLY UNSETTLED / FERNANDA SANTOS / LAS VEGAS SUN
Suny Santana had not been working long as a prep cook at St. Francis, a stylish restaurant in the heart of this city, when his employer learned that he was in the country illegally, brought by his parents from Mexico to the United States as a 12-year-old. Timing and luck were on Santana’s side: The boss, Aaron Chamberlin, told him he could keep the job if he found a way to legalize his status. Months later, in 2012, the Obama administration began the program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, giving young immigrants like Santana temporary permission to live and work in the United States. Santana immediately applied, and thrived. His skills, hunger to learn and determination so impressed Chamberlin that the restaurateur offered to put him in charge of a restaurant.

EXISTE-T-IL UN TYPE D'IMMIGRANT «JUSTE»? / LAURA O'LAUGHLIN / LES AFFAIRES
Les Canadiens, tant au Québec que dans le reste du Canada, ont longtemps compris que notre croissance économique, notre stabilité et notre bien-être dépendent de notre capacité à attirer les immigrants plus jeunes pour renforcer la main-d'oeuvre, contribuer à la société et payer des impôts. Ces contributions sont nécessaires pour le maintien du niveau de vie de notre société, qui vieillit rapidement. Cependant, les Canadiens ne sont pas à l'abri du scepticisme vis-à-vis des communautés d'immigrants. Deux mythes, notamment, liés à l'immigration et à ses effets économiques, n'ont aucun rapport avec la réalité du Canada. Le premier mythe : les immigrants déstabilisent les quartiers parce que le crime augmente dans les secteurs où ils emménagent. Dans un sondage demandant aux Canadiens ce qu'ils pensent de l'association entre immigration et criminalité, environ 43 % des gens ont répondu que l'immigration empirait le crime, alors que près de 21 % des participants ont jugé que l'immigration aidait à le diminuer.

HELD IN SECURE IMMIGRATION AS RYANAIR FAILS TO REUNITE ME WITH ‘LOST’ PASSPORT / ANNA TIMS / THE GUARDIAN
The saga of the easyJet passenger who dropped her passport on board a flight was remarkably similar to my experience with Ryanair, only this airline’s handling of it was more troubling. On a flight from Dublin to Mallorca I left my passport on another seat while putting my luggage into an overhead locker. The passenger handed it to a crew member before take-off but, when I asked for it back, I was told it had been removed from the aircraft before take-off. When we landed I was assured the document could be put on the next flight out and I should wait in arrivals. However, Ryanair staff then told me a passport can’t be sent without its owner. I was kept in a secure immigration area for six hours until airport police allowed me to pass through immigration on the condition that I go directly to the UK consulate and obtain emergency documents. On my return to Dublin I found out that Ryanair did not have a passenger manifest on board, so the passport could not be checked against a list of passenger names. Because the doors had been sealed by the time it was discovered, the captain handed it out of his cockpit window to ground staff.

TONY BLAIR MEETS POPE FRANCIS DAYS AFTER ADMITTING WE DO NEED IMMIGRATION CURBS BECAUSE AS PM HE ALLOWED EU MIGRATION TO SOAR / NATASHA CLARK / THE SUN
TONY BLAIR has met the Pope just days after he admitted we DO need new controls on immigration. Last weekend Mr Blair said he had a "renewed sense of mission" to persuade Brits to stop Brexit. nd today he shook hands with the head of the Catholic Church during his weekly audience. The pair exchanged a few words at St Peter's Square, the Vatican. The Pope was sporting a black eye after the 80-year-old slammed his head into the Popemobile in Columbia last week. The Remainer-in-chief switched from the Anglican Church to Catholicism soon after leaving Downing Street in 2007. But he sparked fury again over the weekend by putting his name to a report calling on EU migrants to be made to register on arrival in the UK.
