A new mentorship program designed by the Mexican Consulate in San Francisco is pairing high school students from immigrant families to Bay Area university student mentors, including some from UC Berkeley.

In collaboration with UC Berkeley, San Francisco State University and the San Francisco Unified School District’s Migrant Education Program, the consulate expanded to include a mentorship program for high school students of immigrant families, advised by students from UC Berkeley and SFSU.

A falta de cuatro días para que se venza el plazo dado por la Casa Blanca para que cerca de 150.000 "soñadores" puedan renovar su amparo migratorio y permiso de trabajo, defensores de los inmigrantes urgen a los beneficiados a que envían sus solicitudes lo antes posible.

El muro no detendrá la migración a los Estados Unidos pero sí aumentará las tragedias, consideró Gustavo de Hoyos Walter, presidente nacional de Coparmex. “Va a encarecer el costo de la inmigración ilegal.

Other attendees included Senator John Cornyn, the No. 2 Senate Republican, and Senators Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia.

DACA RECIPIENTS TREAD LIGHTLY AROUND IMMIGRATION CHECKPOINTS / AARON NELSEN / SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
Before Erick Lugo, 25, was admitted to the program that shields from deportation people who entered the country without legal permission, his life had been confined to the border. That changed with the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which gives recipients work permits and, for immigrants like Lugo, permission to travel beyond immigration checkpoints in South Texas. Yet in the weeks since President Donald Trump said he would phase out the five-year program, numerous DACA recipients, including Lugo and his sister, have been temporarily detained at immigration checkpoints.

SUPREME COURT MULLS PARAMETERS FOR DEPORTING IMMIGRANT FELONS / ANDREW CHUNG / REUTERS
U.S. Supreme Court justices on Monday expressed skepticism toward part of an immigration law requiring the deportation of immigrants who commit violent felonies because of uncertainty over which crimes fit the bill and which do not. The justices heard arguments in the government’s appeal of a lower court’s ruling that language in the Immigration and Nationality Act calling for deportation of legal immigrants convicted of a “crime of violence” was so vague that it violated their rights to due process of law under the U.S. Constitution. The case involves a Filipino legal immigrant named James Garcia Dimaya who federal authorities ordered deported after he was convicted in two California home burglaries, though neither crime involved violence.

ORACLE CO-CEO QUESTIONS POLICIES ON STUDENT VISAS / SALVADOR RODRIGUEZ / REUTERS
Oracle Corp (ORCL.N) Co-Chief Executive Mark Hurd on Monday said he does not understand Trump administration immigration policies that make it difficult for foreigners to work in the United States after earning an education here. “I don’t understand how we let somebody into this country go to our schools, earn degrees and then not allow them to practice the trade that they trained and learned out here in this country and start companies here, pay taxes, have kids,” said Hurd, speaking with reporters at the Oracle Open World conference. Earlier this year, the Trump administration made a number of changes to tighten up the H-1B program, widely used by tech companies, including the suspension of an expedited approval process for those visas.

IMMIGRANT DETAINEES SHOULD BE OFFERED AFFORDABLE BOND FOR RELEASE, 9TH CIRCUIT SAYS / MAURA DOLAN / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Immigrants detained by authorities must be offered affordable bond for their release, a federal appeals court decided Monday. A three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said immigration judges should consider a non-citizen’s ability to pay when setting a bond. “The government’s discretion to incarcerate non-citizens is always constrained by the requirements of due process,” Judge Stephen Reinhardt wrote for the panel. “No person may be imprisoned merely on account of his poverty.” The decision upheld a district judge’s ruling in a class action lawsuit filed by the ACLU on behalf of immigrants, including asylum seekers, arrested in Southern and Central California because of unauthorized entry to the U.S.

SETTLEMENT OF PASADENA SUIT COULD SET STAGE FOR LATINO GAINS / MIKE SNYDER / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
When Ornaldo Ybarra was first elected to the Pasadena City Council, in 2009, he witnessed a political awakening among certain members of his parents' generation. At 31, Ybarra was the first Latino elected to the Pasadena council in nearly two decades. Previously, many older Latino residents "had no idea what a municipal election was; they didn't know who the council members were or who the mayor was," Ybarra testified in federal court last November. "For the first time, you saw those parents going to vote," Ybarra testified. "The first time to realize, I can call my council member. If I have an issue with a department head or a city department, I have a voice."

THIS IMMIGRANT TEACHES SEWING SKILLS TO EMPOWER REFUGEES / ALESSANDRA FREITAS / HUFFINGTON POST
When financial planner Manju Rastogi first arrived in the U.S. from India, back in 1969, she recalls that she had never felt more lonely. The 21-year-old former flight attendant had just gotten married and landed in Troy, Ohio, to start a new life with her husband at the time. “We were the only Indian couple in that city for three or four years, so it was very isolating having no family and no one to teach you anything,” she told HuffPost. The situation worsened after she started having problems in her marriage and found herself having to raise two kids while still adjusting to life in a new country. “I needed to find a job to make sure me and my children would be alright in case anything happened,” she said.

CANADA DEFENDS REFUGEE SYSTEM AS SOMALI IMMIGRANT CHARGED IN ATTACK / ETHAN LOU / REUTERS
Canada defended its immigration and refugee vetting system on Monday after a Somali immigrant, who had drawn scrutiny for his alleged extremist views, was charged with attempted murder for a weekend vehicle and knife attack that injured five. Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, 30, is accused of running down a police officer with his car in Edmonton, Alberta, and then stabbing him repeatedly. He then ran down four pedestrians during an attempt to evade capture. Sharif faces 11 charges including five for attempted murder linked to the rampage in the western Canadian city on Saturday night and police said more charges could be laid. He came to Canada in 2012 and was granted refugee status in the same year, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said.

IMMIGRATION: MANIF SANS HEURTS A SAINT-BERNARD-DE-LACOLLE / FANNY LEVESQUE / LA PRESSE
Le face-à-face qui promettait d'être tendu entre le groupe identitaire Storm Alliance et les manifestants antifascistes s'est finalement déroulé sans heurts, samedi au poste frontalier de Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle. Tout au long de l'affrontement, qui aura duré un peu plus de deux heures, les autorités policières ont exercé une surveillance serrée ne laissant rien déborder. Le Comité de réponse antiraciste et antifasciste et le regroupement Solidarité sans frontières avaient appelé leurs membres à manifester à la frontière canado-américaine sur le coup de 10h. Le mouvement pro-immigration répliquait ainsi à l'appel lancé par Storm Alliance sur les réseaux sociaux à manifester contre les politiques «destructrices» de Justin Trudeau.

LONDON’S UBER BAN RAISES QUESTIONS ON RACE AND IMMIGRATION / KATRIN BENNHOLD / THE NEW YORK TIMES
There is one question that bothers Sahrab Shinwari: “Would they have banned Uber if its drivers had been white and English?” The shock decision last month to strip Uber of its London license has been rippling across the British capital, animating conversations at all layers of London life — about Uber’s convenient and cheap service in a market long dominated by iconic but pricey black cabs; about the company’s flawed track record in corporate governance; and about the kind of capitalism Britain wants after the “Brexit” vote to leave the European Union last year. But at street level, the city was buzzing with more uncomfortable questions — like the one that troubled Mr. Shinwari, himself an Uber driver who came to London from Afghanistan nine years ago. He is one of the company’s 40,000 drivers in London.

POST-BREXIT IMMIGRATION WHITE PAPER DELAYED UNTIL LATE AUTUMN / ALAN TRAVIS / THE GUARDIAN
The government white paper on post-Brexit immigration policy, a draft of which was leaked to the Guardian in August, will not now be published until “late autumn”, the immigration minister, Brandon Lewis, has told a Conservative fringe meeting. Lewis confirmed that the final version will include a commitment that freedom of movement for EU migrants will end in March 2019 – on Brexit day – but revealed that the key details of the new immigration policy, one of the most controversial areas of cabinet splits, will not emerge until next autumn, just months before Britain leaves the EU. “We will be publishing a white paper later this autumn … There will be an immigration bill in the new year setting out the framework,” said Lewis.

NIGER: SECURITE ET IMMIGRATION AU MENU DE LA VISITE DE JEAN-YVES LE DRIAN / RFI
A Niamey, Jean-Yves Le Drian visitera le poste de commandement du secteur centre de la force du G5-Sahel (Mauritanie, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger et Tchad). Cette force continue à se mettre en place. La première opération pourrait avoir lieu fin octobre. Problème, il manque toujours de l’argent pour assurer son fonctionnement. Côté français, on a refait tous les calculs alors que l’évaluation du G5 était de 450 millions d’euros par an, Paris pense plutôt que la force pourrait fonctionner avec 250 millions. Mais même là, le compte n’y est pas. La réunion de Berlin le 19 septembre a réaffirmé la dynamique, rappelle-t-on au ministère des Armées, mais personne n’a mis la main au portefeuille.

STORM ALLIANCE ET L’ANTI-IMMIGRATION AUX FRONTIERES / THOMAS THIVIERGE / IMPACT CAMPUS
Face à eux, des dizaines, voire des centaines de manifestants antiracisme et pro-immigration ont manifesté leur opposition envers les positions du groupe Storm Alliance, qu’ils n’ont pas hésité à qualifier de « racistes ». Le fondateur de l’organisation identitaire, Dave Tregget, s’est une fois de plus défendu concernant les intentions de son groupe, proclamant haut et fort « qu’ils ne sont ni racistes, ni anti-immigration ». « On est ici pour dénoncer et les politiques de Justin Trudeau, et des libéraux, qu’elles soient économiques ou sociales, mais aussi les inquiétudes qu’ont les gens envers l’immigration, a-t-il affirmé à ses militants et aux membres des médias durant le rassemblement. Quand on parle des inquiétudes à propos de l’immigration, c’est le manque de ressources que M. Trudeau met en place pour aider les immigrants une fois qu’ils sont rendus ici. »

"LA POLITIQUE BELGE D'IMMIGRATION EST TRES HUMAINE AVEC LES VRAIS DEMANDEURS D'ASILE" / DOMINIQUE LIESSE / L’ECHO
Theo Francken, secrétaire d'Etat en charge de l'asile et de l'immigration, affirme "prendre ses responsabilités". Ses priorités: ne pas voir le parc de Bruxelles se transformer en un "Calais" bis et lutter contre le salafisme. Critiqué pour sa politique d'immigration, Theo Francken se défend. Les chiffres d'arrivées des migrants sont sous contrôle. "Après avoir connu un pic de l'afflux en 2015, nous sommes désormais redescendus à un niveau plus bas: entre 1.000 et 1.300 demandes introduites chaque mois". Le secrétaire d'Etat en charge de l'asile et de l'immigration, l'affirme: "Je prends tous les jours mes responsabilités!" Theo Francken a été récemment pointé pour ses contacts avec les autorités soudanaises. "Cela ne veut pas dire que j'aime avoir des contacts avec les représentants soudanais. Tous les partis politiques disent ne pas vouloir à Bruxelles d'un deuxième Calais.
