WHY THE CURRENT IMMIGRATION DEBATE WILL SOON BE MOOT / DON RHEEM / FORBES
The political froth today about immigration into the United States centers on whether to keep people out or let them in. It will not be long before we harken to these days bemused about all the heat that has been generated over an issue that will soon have been turned on its head. My lens here is strictly business. It will be painfully clear in the next few years that our economy cannot function without more people. We are at full employment today in the United States and the U.S. Department of Labor says the number of unfilled jobs is well north of 5 million. Birth rates have been in decline for decades as has been the rate of labor growth. As our economy continues in the longest period of economic growth in recent history, most of the available talent has been scooped up by hungry employers trying to keep up with growing demand.

JÓVENES TEMEN RENOVAR DACA / EL UNIVERSAL
El temor a compartir información personal con las autoridades migratorias hace dudar a un buen número de jóvenes indocumentados amparados bajo el programa de la Acción Diferida (DACA, por sus siglas en inglés) sobre la conveniencia de renovar ese permiso, a horas de que concluya el plazo para hacerlo. “La verdad tengo miedo, tengo miedo de que así como el presidente Donald Trump decidió terminar con el programa DACA, [temo que] la extensión de los permisos de trabajo no sean respetados, especialmente si el Congreso no aprueba ninguna legislación en los próximos meses”, reconoció Rocío, una joven de 23 años que ha decidido no renovar DACA.

‘DREAMERS’ SE AFERRAN A LA ESPERANZA DE QUE EL CONGRESO ACTÚE PARA PROTEGERLOS / ELOY TUPAYACHI / MUNDO HISPANICO
Tras la cancelación de un programa federal que los protegía de la deportación, miles de jóvenes inmigrantes se aferran a la esperanza de que el Congreso actúe y apruebe una legislación que les permita quedarse legalmente en el país, algo que parece posible ante el interés que han mostrado sobre el tema legisladores de ambos partidos. Esta semana, cientos de estudiantes que se benefician del programa de Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA, por sus siglas en inglés), realizaron una manifestación en Raleigh, la capital de Carolina del Norte, para pedirle al Congreso que los proteja.

TRUMP CAN’T TIE FEDERAL GRANTS TO IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT / MIKE FEUER / THE BOSTON GLOBE
The Trump administration’s famously hard-edged rhetoric on immigration has deeply divided America and sparked fear in neighborhoods from coast to coast — with last week’s ICE raids in so-called sanctuary cities (sweeping up criminals and noncriminals alike) underscoring the point. And the administration has followed up on the president’s threat to use federal funds as a “weapon” against these same cities, imposing civil immigration terms on the formula-based Edward Byrne Justice Assistance Grant created by Congress to fight crime, and the Community Oriented Policing Services Grant, established to promote community-based policing. The Trump administration’s message to local law enforcement is clear: If you want to continue receiving federal funds for crime-fighting, you will become instruments of the president’s immigration policy — reversing local decisions designed to promote public safety.

L.A. CONGRESSWOMAN JOINS LATINO DEMOCRATS ASKING TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO EXTEND DACA RENEWAL DEADLINE / CHRISTINE MAI-DUC / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard is one of three members of Congress who have asked the Department of Homeland Security to move Thursday's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals renewal deadline to Jan. 5. The Oct. 5 deadline to renew was set last month when President Trump announced an end to the program that has allowed people brought to U.S. illegally as children to stay and work, but only about a fifth of the estimated 800,000 young people who had been granted DACA status are eligible to apply for a renewal. The Tuesday letter, also signed by Reps. Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico and Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez of Illinois, was addressed to acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke and cited a recent DHS estimate that about a third of those eligible to renew their status had not yet applied.

LATINO REPUBLICANS PLACE THEIR BETS ON DACA / PRISCILLA ALVAREZ / THE ATLANTIC
After the 2012 presidential election, Republicans came to a conclusion: They needed to make inroads with Hispanic voters. Four years later, the party chose Donald Trump—whose controversial rhetoric and hardline stance on immigration alienated many Hispanic voters—as its nominee, intensifying tensions between the GOP and Hispanics. Despite that history, Republican strategists now see an opportunity to appeal to this segment of the population by passing legislation granting legal status to recipients of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which shields undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children from deportation. Last month, the Trump administration announced that it was ending DACA with a six-month delay.

I WAS 9 WHEN MY PARENTS TOLD ME I WAS UNDOCUMENTED. WITH DACA ENDING, I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT'S NEXT / BRIAN DE LOS SANTOS / LOS ANGELES TIMES
My parents don’t remember exactly when they told me. But I do. I was 8 or 9 years old. My teacher gave me a pamphlet about a school trip to Washington, D.C. At dinner that night in my family’s Mid-City apartment, I told my parents I really wanted to go and experience my nation’s capital. At first, my mother danced around the request, focusing on how much it would cost. But eventually, she grew more serious. “No tienes un ID para viajar, mijo.” “You don’t have an ID to travel, son.” I knew something was off, but I wasn’t exactly sure what. I considered myself American, just like any other kid in my class. I learned U.S. history, bopped along to Snoop Dogg — and, of course, adored a Happy Meal. My parents had often told me I was born in Veracruz, Mexico.

I’M NOT A DREAMER OR IMMIGRANT, BUT WE SHARE COMMON VALUES / DARRYL LORENZO WELLINGTON / HUFFINGTON POST
My encounter with Dreamers last month happened by chance. I was sitting in my local library when an employee tapped me on the shoulder, and asked in hush-hush please speak quietly in the library voice, “Darryl, do you know that in a few minutes there will be a presentation by the Dreamers?” I could have had what turned out to be a memorable and touching experience earlier. I had missed several opportunities before to attend panel discussions featuring young people who have status through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. But life is life. I always had additional work and other chores or there was another unexpected family crisis. I live in New Mexico, a state with a high percentage of undocumented immigrants from Mexico.

SUPREME COURT WEIGHS IMMIGRANTS’ RIGHTS TO HAVE DETENTION REVIEWED / VIVIAN YEE / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Amid a nationwide surge in immigration arrests spearheaded by the Trump administration, the Supreme Court weighed on Tuesday whether immigrants facing deportation are entitled to have their detentions, which can stretch for years, reviewed by a judge. The justices were considering whether immigrants fighting deportation or applying for asylum in the United States are entitled to periodic hearings before a judge to decide whether they can be released on bond while their cases make their way through the nation’s clogged immigration courts. Lawyers for the immigrants argue that the government’s practice of keeping immigrants in jail-like detention facilities indefinitely, without independent reviews of whether there are grounds for keeping them there, violates their due process rights.

THE SUPREME COURT MUST GUARANTEE DUE PROCESS FOR NONCITIZENS / LOS ANGELES TIMES
This week the Supreme Court heard arguments in two cases that pose the question of whether noncitizens should be afforded at least some of the due process of law that Americans take for granted. The answer in both cases should be a resounding yes. On Monday, the justices considered whether a Filipino legal immigrant convicted of two home burglaries in California could be deported even if the wording of the federal law used to determine whether he could be removed from the U.S. was so unconstitutionally vague that it could not be enforced in a criminal court. On Tuesday, lawyers for a group of noncitizens detained by immigration authorities asked the court to rule that detainees are entitled to a bond hearing after six months of confinement.

IMMIGRATION ADVOCATES PUSH CALIFORNIA TO LIMIT ICE HOLDS / ANGELA HART / SACRAMENTO BEE
Gov. Jerry Brown in June signed a bill establishing a moratorium on any expansion of immigrant detention beds at public facilities across California, a move aimed at blunting the Trump administration’s statewide immigration crackdown. Now, immigrants’ rights advocates are urging Brown to sign a similar bill from state Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, that would prevent cities, counties and local law enforcement agencies from entering into new contracts with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to expand immigration holds at for-profit facilities. It would also bar local agencies from expanding the number of detention beds under current contracts with for-profit companies.

HOW IMMIGRATION FOILED HILLARY / THOMAS B. EDSALL / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Democrats point to a thousand reasons that Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election. Here is another. In political circles, it’s common knowledge that in four key states President Trump unexpectedly carried counties that Democratic presidential campaign strategists had failed to recognize as crucial terrain — sparsely populated areas of Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. In “What I Got Wrong About the Election,” for example, published right after Clinton lost, David Plouffe, who had managed the Obama campaign in 2008, wrote that Trump’s margins in rural and exurban counties were off the charts. For example, in Madison County, an exurban area outside Columbus, Ohio, Mr. Romney’s margin over Mr. Obama was 20.4 percentage points;

JASON KENNEY, FORMER IMMIGRATION MINISTER, QUESTIONED OVER HOW ACCUSED EDMONTON ATTACKER ENTERED CANADA / JONNY WAKEFIELD / EDMONTON JOURNAL
United Conservative Party (UCP) leadership candidate and former federal immigration minister Jason Kenney is facing questions over how the man accused of attacking a police officer and slamming into pedestrians in Edmonton was admitted to Canada. On Tuesday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials said a man named Abdullahi Hassan Sharif was ordered deported from the United States in 2011. Sources said they believe that man and the suspect arrested after the Sept. 30 attack in Edmonton — Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, 30 — are the same person. Canadian officials said Sharif, who is from Somalia, made an asylum claim at a Canada-U.S. border crossing in 2012, and was granted it later that year.

THOUSANDS OF REFUGEE CLAIMS FROM ASYLUM SEEKERS REMAIN UNPROCESSED: FEDERAL IMMIGRATION OFFICIALS / JOLSON LIM / HILL TIMES
Only 300 refugee claims filed by the thousands of asylum seekers flowing across the Canadian border in Quebec in recent months have been processed by the federal tribunal that decides who gets refugee status, officials told the House Immigration and Citizenship Committee on Tuesday. Only half of those 300 asylum seekers have been granted refugee status, representatives from the federal Immigration and Refugee Board revealed in testimony to the committee. The surge in asylum seekers crossing into Canada slowed in the first half of September; IRB officials told the committee that from Sept. 1-17 about 2,000 asylum claims were filed from those who illegally entered Canada, a drop from the more than 8,000 claims made in July and August.

FIRST GERMAN IMMIGRATION LAW ON AGENDA AS MERKEL SEEKS COALITION / MADELINE CHAMBERS / REUTERS
Some senior members of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative bloc and potential coalition partners have backed the idea of an immigration law as a possible way to help solve Germany’s migrant policy jigsaw. Merkel, who won a fourth term in a Sept. 24 election albeit with heavy losses to the anti-immigrant far right, is considering a three-way coalition with the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP) and environmentalist Greens - a tie-up as yet untested at the national level in Germany. Among their various differences, migration is shaping up as a major sticking point due to the insistence of the conservatives’ Bavarian sister party, the Christian Social Union (CSU), on a refugee cap after almost one million migrants poured into the country in 2015, with tens of thousands more since. A formal cap is rejected by the other parties - as well as Merkel. President Frank-Walter Steinmeier brought the issue to the fore on Tuesday, saying in a speech that German policy must be able to differentiate between political refugees and economic migrants so as to “define legal access to Germany”. Greens co-leader Cem Ozdemir, who has long argued for an immigration law, welcomed the intervention of the president, a center-left Social Democrat.
