MORE THAN 2 MILLION UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS WILL NOW BE PROTECTED UNDER CALIFORNIA'S SANCTUARY LAW / HARRIET SINCLAIR / NEWSWEEK
More than 2.3 million undocumented immigrants in California are now officially protected under a new state sanctuary law. Governor Jerry Brown on Thursday signed the California Values Act, which bars police departments from detaining people based on their immigration status and prevents immigrants from being delivered to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers unless they are convicted of certain felonies and misdemeanors. The policy also will limit the amount of personal information federal immigration officials can access on undocumented immigrants. Senate Bill 54, which has been criticized by President Donald Trump and is seen by many as a direct challenge to his recent crackdown on illegal immigration, will go into force on January 1.

MÉXICO, SIN UN PROYECTO CONCRETO PARA LA EVENTUAL REPATRIACIÓN DE “DREAMERS” / MICHOACÁN 3.0
Pese a que se conoce la magnitud del fenómeno, en México se carece todavía de un proyecto que amortigüe el impacto ante un eventual retorno de miles de jóvenes mexicanos nacidos en el país pero que se han desarrollado en los Estados Unidos, conocidos como “dreamers” y que representan un reto no sólo en materia económica o laboral, sino en cuanto a un nuevo fenómeno cultural.

LANDLORDS WHO THREATEN IMMIGRANT TENANTS WITH DEPORTATION CAN FACE CIVIL CLAIMS IN CALIFORNIA / JAZMINE ULLOA / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Thursday to prevent landlords from threatening immigrant tenants with deportation, measures he said were part of broader efforts by his administration "to bolster resources and support for the immigrant community." One proposal by Assemblyman David Chiu (D-San Francisco) would bar landlords from disclosing information about immigration status in order to intimidate, harass or evict tenants without following proper procedures. It also would allow immigrant tenants to file civil claims against their landlords if they do. Another bill by Assembly Majority Leader Ian Calderon (D-Whittier) would ensure that no state office or entity in California could compel a landlord to obtain and disclose information on a tenant's immigration status.

ALSO TO BE PURSUED WAS AN OVERHAUL OF THE GREEN CARD SYSTEM TO PREVENT EXTENDED FAMILY MEMBERS FROM JOINING PERMANENT RESIDENTS IN THE U.S. / JILL COLVIN / THE DENVER POST
The Trump administration is finalizing the details of a set of immigration principles that could upend efforts to come up with a permanent fix for the status of young immigrants who came to the country illegally as children. The principles, according to people familiar with ongoing discussions, were expected to include elements of proposed legislation that would dramatically reduce legal immigration rates. Also to be pursued was an overhaul of the green card system to prevent extended family members, including siblings and adult children, from joining permanent residents in the U.S. The White House was expected to endorse principles of the Davis-Oliver bill, which aims to give local law enforcement officials the power to enforce immigration laws and allow states to write their own immigration legislation.

ABBOTT COUNTERS SB 4 BACKLASH WITH HISPANIC LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE / GILBERT GARCIA / SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
Greg Abbott would have won the 2014 gubernatorial election even if he hadn’t received a single, solitary Latino vote. Comfortably, in fact. If every one of the roughly 800,000 Latino votes in that election had gone to Abbott’s opponent, Wendy Davis, Abbott would have taken the race by more than 200,000 votes. Here’s another fact that should bum out any Texas Democrat: Abbott actually received 44 percent of the Latino vote in 2014, a higher percentage than his fellow Republican Rick Perry achieved in 2010 with a concerted Hispanic outreach effort. For Democrats who cling to the demographics-are-destiny theory of politics — which postulates that the fast-growing Latino population in this state ultimately will cause Texas to go from red to blue — these are some demoralizing truths.

RANCHO HIGH GETS TOP HONOR FOR DEVELOPING LATINO LEADERS / MEGHIN DELANEY / LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
Rancho High School was recognized this week as the top high school in the nation for “fostering future Latino community leaders.” The honor for the Las Vegas school by the National Hispanic Institute was announced Thursday by Principal James Kuzma. “Congratulations to the entire Rancho community on this special recognition,” Kuzma wrote in an email. “I could not be more proud to serve as principal of Rancho High School.” The school will be honored during the National Hispanic Institute Alumni Awards banquet in San Marcos, Texas, in November. Almost 75 percent of the school’s 3,235 students from the 2016-17 academic year were Hispanic, according to state Department of Education data. About 10 percent of the student body is white, 8 percent black, 4 percent Asian and about 3 percent are two or more races.

7 DESTINATIONS TO CELEBRATE HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH / JUSTIN SABLICH / THE NEW YORK TIMES
National Hispanic Heritage Month, observed by Americans every Sept. 15 through Oct. 15, is a time to reflect on and appreciate Hispanic culture and its contributions to our country. The dates are significant, as Sept. 15 marks the independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico and Chile also celebrate their independence during the monthlong celebration. To appreciate this culture, why not go straight to the source? Here are just a few of the many worthwhile destinations in the Spanish-speaking world. (Two world-class destination — Mexico City and its environs, which were hit recently by a devastating earthquake, and Puerto Rico, still recovering from Hurricane Maria — are also worth keeping an eye on as they make their comebacks.)

LATINOS HAVE BECOME CHICAGO’S SECOND-LARGEST ETHNIC GROUP / THE ECONOMIST
“THE next mayor of Chicago will be Latino,” predicts John Hagedorn at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Latinos recently became the second-largest ethnic group in the city, accounting for 29.7% of the population, overtaking African-Americans (29.3%) and rivalling whites (32.6%). For decades the local Democratic Party’s machine was able to ignore Latinos. Today this would be political suicide. The closeness of Rahm Emanuel, Chicago’s mayor, to Luis Gutiérrez, a congressman and perhaps the city’s most powerful Latino politician, reflects this. On October 2nd Mr Emanuel, flanked by Mr Gutiérrez, who is of Puerto Rican origin, and dozens of Latino aldermen and city officials, announced that he is inviting “tens of thousands” of Puerto Ricans fleeing their hurricane-ravaged island to Chicago. About 1,600 have already arrived in the city.

CALIFORNIA VS TRUMP: 'SANCTUARY STATE' VOWS TO PROTECT ITS IMMIGRANTS FROM PRESIDENT'S CRACKDOWN / HELENA HORTON / THE TELEGRAPH
California has become a "sanctuary state" in order to protect its immigrants from the Trump administration. Governor Jerry Brown has signed a bill significantly limiting the state’s cooperation with federal immigration authorities. It is estimated that 65 percent of all deportations result from cooperation between state and local law enforcement and federal officers. This has continued the liberal state's moves to defy Donald Trump and his policies on immigrants. California has more illegal immigrants than any other US state, but officials including Senator Kamala Harris have been outspoken in their pledge to prevent deportations. Gov Brown wrote: "These are uncertain times for undocumented Californians and their families.

IMMIGRATION AU CANADA: QUEL SORT POUR IBRAHIMA TOURE, DETENU DEPUIS 2013? / AFRICA GUINEE
Il a 46 ans et vit en détention depuis 2013. Ibrahima Touré est un sans papier dont le gouvernement canadien peine à statuer sur son sort. Né en Gambie mais ayant grandi en Guinée, Ibrahima Touré est détenu au centre correctionnel de Lindsay depuis février 2013 sans aucune charge criminelle retenue contre lui. Son seul crime, être sans papier au Canada. Incapable de prouver son identité, le Canada ne peut donc procèder à son expulsion du pays pour ne pas violer les conventions internationales qui protègent les réfugiés. Quand aux autorités canadiennes, elle soupçonne Ibrahima Touré d'être un guinéen dont le nom serait Bakaba Touré. Ottawa l'accuse d'être entré illégallement au Canada en quittant les USA où il aurait travaillé clandestinnement dans les années 2000.

THE IMMIGRANT SHRINK HELPING BRITAIN’S POLES / THE FINANCIAL TIMES
Anna Bialous-Griffiths came to London in 2005 soon after graduating from university in Poland and took a job in a fancy hotel. It did not go well.“I’d been studying English for so many years and when I came here I didn’t understand anything,” Mrs Bialous-Griffiths recalled. “It was so stressful.”Then the Polish boyfriend she had come with abruptly returned home and she began to feel lonely and unsafe. Her confidence melted and within six months she was back in Warsaw. “I was depressed for some time,” she said, recalling those days. “I thought: I should have stayed there. I don’t go back.”As it turns out, that unhappy episode provided useful training for Mrs Bialous-Griffiths’ future career: as a psychotherapist based in the English Midlands, treating a roster of patients who are almost entirely Polish immigrants like herself.“It was an important lesson for me because now I understand what many of my clients feel,” said Mrs Bialous-Griffiths, now 37, sitting in a restaurant near her office.
