AUMENTAN REMESAS PARA MORELOS / DIARIO DE MORELOS
Las remesas con las nuevas políticas migratorias aumentaron, por lo menos hasta antes del sismo habían crecido en comparación al año pasado en el estado de Morelos; por lo que después de la contingencia se prevé una organización para hacer llegar recursos a comunidades de origen. El tema de las nuevas disposiciones en materia migratoria del presidente de los Estados Unidos Donald Trump no alteró el flujo de estos activos, sino que al contrario, incrementaron considerablemente en el territorio morelense, precisó el director de Asuntos Migrantes de la Secretaría de Desarrollo Social del estado, Miguel Ángel Rivera.

TRUMP NEVER HAD A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH LATINO VOTERS. IT’S ONLY GETTING WORSE / JOHN WAGNER AND ED O'KEEFE / THE WASHINGTON POST
When President Trump said a few weeks ago that he wanted to find a way to continue protecting young “dreamers” from deportation, some Republicans touted the possibility of a “Nixon goes to China” moment that could reset the president’s deeply frayed relationship with Latino voters. But ever since, Trump has returned to antagonizing this growing segment of the electorate — including proposing new hard-line immigration measures Sunday — deepening a rift that many in his party fear will do lasting damage to the GOP’s ability to win future elections. Trump’s hostile rhetoric and actions toward Latinos, Republican strategists say, could not only undercut candidates in competitive 2018 races and make the White House harder to retain in 2020 but also further tarnish a GOP brand that party leaders have struggled for years to sell to skeptical Latino voters.

U.S. CEOS, MEXICAN LEADERS TO MEET AS NAFTA TALKS RESUME IN U.S. / ERIC MARTIN / BLOOMBERG NEWS
As negotiators resume talks Wednesday in Washington to overhaul NAFTA, American business leaders will be in Mexico City meeting with counterparts from the nation's private sector and allies in government to discuss ways to defend the deal. The meeting at the Four Seasons Hotel includes a conversation between executives and Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo, who oversees Mexico's negotiating team, according to an agenda obtained by Bloomberg News. Guajardo's office confirmed his participation. Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray and Finance Minister Jose Antonio Meade will also address the gathering, according to the schedule for the closed-door summit. Led by executives from FedEx and Tenaris, more than 100 business and government officials attended the U.S.-Mexico CEO Dialogue in December, shortly after Donald Trump's election, the last time the event was held in Mexico.

TRUMP’S CRUEL SABOTAGE OF THE ‘DREAMERS’ / THE WASHINGTON POST
THE TROUBLE with forging a deal to allow “dreamers” to remain legally in this country isn’t that Democrats and Republicans can’t agree with each other. It’s that President Trump can’t agree with himself. At various times, Mr. Trump has suggested that dreamers should, and should not, be allowed to stay in the United States. He has said that a massively expensive border wall should, and should not, be part of any compromise on dreamers. He has repeatedly expressed compassion for dreamers, and now, by connecting their prospects to a kitchen-sink set of hard-line demands, made clear he sees them as no more than a bargaining chip to advance the Republican Party’s sweeping nativist agenda. The president’s shape-shifting on the dreamers, as on so many other issues, is a symptom of his indifference to policy and absent moral compass.

AFTER WHITE HOUSE ISSUES DEMANDS, HOPES FOR AN IMMIGRATION DEAL DIM / YAMICHE ALCINDOR / THE NEW YORK TIMES
The list of hard-line immigration demands that President Trump said he needs to back protections for young undocumented immigrants triggered a furious response on Monday from Democrats and immigration activists, who gave no indication they were willing to strike any deal. More important, it exposed a largely unspoken truth in the capital: Nearly a month after Democratic leaders and Mr. Trump celebrated the possibility of a bipartisan immigration deal, no such agreement appears on the horizon. Instead, any agreement that would shield about 800,000 young immigrants from deportation will depend on how far Democrats are willing to push the government toward a shutdown in mid-December, when a stopgap spending bill expires.

IVANKA TRUMP CALLS ON CONGRESS TO ACT ON IMMIGRATION / BETSY KLEIN / CNN
Ivanka Trump waded into the immigration debate Monday evening, calling the fate of immigrants who have been covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program a "very complicated issue." "You do have the question of the Dreamers: 800,000 young people, most of whom are under 25, most of whom are women. What role should the Dreamers be playing in the future workforce?" moderator Nina Easton asked Trump during a panel discussion at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit. "This is a very complicated issue that needs a long-term congressional fix," she said, prompting murmurs from the audience, which included female business powerhouses, including Diane Von Furstenberg. Monday's response was the first time Ivanka Trump has addressed the topic of immigration since her father took office, usually opting to stay away from controversial political topics.

IMMIGRATION BAIT AND SWITCH / THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
Trump bows to the restrictionists and may scupper a deal. Does President Trump want a bipartisan deal on immigration, or is his talk merely for cable-TV show? Two weeks ago he suggested the former, but on Sunday evening the White House issued demands that will make any agreement well-nigh impossible. The issue is how to fix Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, the Obama program that granted work permits and legal immunity to some 800,000 young adults who were brought into the U.S. irregularly as minors. Last month the Administration announced that it would end DACA in...

AS THE IMMIGRATION DEBATE RAMPS UP, HERE ARE THE LEADING BILLS ALREADY PENDING IN CONGRESS / LAUREN ROSENBLATT / LOS ANGELES TIMES
When President Trump withdrew deportation protection for people who irregularly came to the United States as children, he tasked Congress with crafting an immigration plan to overhaul the system. A blueprint deal he reached with Democrats emphasized protecting the so-called Dreamers while beefing up border security to prevent others from entering the country illegally. Over the weekend, the White House unveiled much tougher terms, including funding for a border wall and new limits on legal immigration. Because of the deep divides over immigration, passage of reform will be difficult. But since the issue has been kicking around Congress for years, there are already several bills that could provide a foundation or pieces for an immigration package.

DESPITE ASSURANCES TO NERVOUS IMMIGRANTS, SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT GAVE ICE ASSISTANCE IN JAILS / JOEL RUBIN / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Since President Trump laid out his plan for mass deportations, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has gone out of its way to reassure the public it had strict limits on cooperating with immigration officials. As the president and others demanded, among other things, that local police work closely with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers to hand over jail inmates suspected of being in the country illegally, the Sheriff’s Department took a defiant stand, saying ICE officers had to collect inmate information from a public website. Behind the scenes, however, things were playing out differently. Instead of keeping immigration officers at an arm’s length, Sheriff’s Department jail officials granted them access to the department’s inmate processing facility, allowing them to set up an office with computers that provided “a constant flow of information regarding prisoners who were soon to be released,” according to a report released Monday by the independent watchdog that oversees the Sheriff’s Department.

IMMIGRATION ADVOCATE SAYS COMMUNITIES' VALUES CAN GUIDE REFORM / ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY
A nationally recognized immigration advocate and author said Monday that reform is not insurmountable and that many communities across the nation are showing the way, but it'll take a cross-sector of society to light the path to illumination. “I'm not going to say we've figured this out, but what I am going to say is when civic and community leaders, clergy, law enforcement and business groups work together, they can help us get through this process," Ali Noorani said. "The best way to help someone with this issue is through their faith and through their values." Noorani’s comment was made at a discussion on immigrants and immigration moderated by Cronkite School faculty Fernanda SantosSantos, who is an immigrant, is an award-winning journalist and author, and a Southwest Borderlands Initiative professor of practice at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications at ASU.

DEPORTATION FEARS SEEN STOPPING UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS FROM REPORTING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE / HARRIET SINCLAIR / NEWSWEEK
Undocumented immigrants in California appear to have become less likely to report incidents of domestic violence due to fears about deportation, officials say. In the first six months of 2017, reports of domestic violence in California’s Latino community fell by 18 percent in San Francisco, 13.3 percent in San Diego and 3.5 percent in Los Angeles, according to data compiled by the Los Angeles Times from the three police departments. These large drops in reporting can be compared with a drop of less than 1 percent in domestic violence reports by non-Latino communities in the three cities, prompting fears among professionals working in the domestic violence field that the declines are linked to a fear of deportation.

COLUMBUS: SWASHBUCKLING HERO, BOOTSTRAPPING IMMIGRANT OR GENOCIDAL MONSTER? / SETH KIMMEL / THE WASHINGTON POST
It is a Columbus Day ritual to disagree over the legacy of Christopher Columbus. Defenders of Columbus’s place on our calendars and monuments seek to honor the achievements of an intrepid explorer. Critics insist that Columbus commemorations willfully obscure the genocide and slavery that indigenous communities in the New World suffered as a result of Columbus’s exploits. These disagreements have gradually intensified over the past few decades and suddenly exploded in recent weeks. But the practice of crafting one-sided stories about Columbus to advance particular agendas actually dates back to the 16th century. At stake in these stories has always been the power to employ Columbus’s legacy for political and professional ends that transcend the explorer himself — a reminder that history is an ongoing debate in the present rather than a definitive account of the past.

IMMIGRATION : ENCORE UN TABOU? / MATHIEU BOCK-COTE / JOURNAL DE MONTREAL
De 1995 à 2007, soit du deuxième référendum sur l’indépendance à la crise des accommodements raisonnables, il n’était à peu près pas possible de parler d’immigration au Québec. Nous étions collectivement traumatisés par la déclaration de Jacques Parizeau sur le vote ethnique. Une chape de plomb s’était abattue sur la vie publique. On ne pouvait plus se demander dans quelle mesure l’immigration massive servait les intérêts d’Ottawa et des libéraux. Il n’était plus possible de se demander si elle fragilisait le statut du français à Montréal et diluait le poids de la majorité historique francophone. Débat. Quiconque arrivait dans le débat public avec un point d’interrogation pour semer quelques questions était accusé de xénophobie ou de repli identitaire.

FAR RIGHT WANTS AUSTRIA TO JOIN GROUP OF ANTI-IMMIGRANT STATES / REUTERS
The far right Freedom Party (FPO), set to become kingmaker after elections on Oct. 15, wants Austria to join the Visegrad Group of central and east European states opposed to immigration. Eurosceptic leaders in Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia have refused migrant quotas approved by a western-dominated majority of European Union member states. They also reject proposed European Union reforms that would transfer more power from national governments to Brussels institutions. The FPO, likely to be a part of Austria’s next ruling coalition, also wants a more decentralized EU. “We will ... strengthen contact with the Visegrad states and it would be nice and good if we could maybe even become a member of the Visegrad Group,” FPO chief Heinz-Christian Strache said in an election debate with Social Democrat Chancellor Christian Kern focusing on curbing migrant flows and Brussels’ powers.

IMMIGRATION. ISRAËL MET FIN A SES AIDES A L’INTEGRATION EN FRANÇAIS / COURRIER INTERNATIONAL
Le gouvernement israélien a annoncé la fin de son assistance sociale en français pour les nouveaux arrivants dans le pays. Le programme avait été mis en place en 2015 pour encourager l’alyah des juifs français. En février 2015, après les attentats contre Charlie Hebdo et l’Hyper Cacher, le gouvernement israélien avait décidé d’encourager l’émigration des juifs français, l’alyah. “Les villes qui accueillent traditionnellement le plus de Français, Netanya, Jérusalem, Ashdod, Tel-Aviv et Hadera, s’étaient vu allouer un budget spécial pour embaucher du personnel francophone”, rappelle The Times of Israel. Ces aides prendront fin en décembre, annonce Ha’Aretz. “Les 3 000 immigrants parlant français arrivés en Israël en 2015 et 2016 se retrouvent sans assistance”, constate le journal israélien, qui indique que “la plupart des nouveaux venus ne parlent pas hébreux ou alors le font avec grande difficulté”.
