BILL WOULD BAN NYPD FROM PARTNERING WITH IMMIGRATION AGENTS / RICH CALDER / THE NEW YORK POST
The city already makes it difficult for immigration agents to get information about illegal residents — and on Monday, the City Council took more steps to shut out the feds. The council’s Committee on Immigration voted unanimously to pass a bill prohibiting local law enforcement from entering partnerships with agents from US Immigration and Customs Enforcement to enforce immigration laws. The full council is expected to easily approve the legislation, which would severely limit federal agents’ ability to use city property, employees and other resources to go after undocumented immigrants. “The city already cooperates with ICE on its own terms through [current] laws,” said council member Rafael Espinal (D-Brooklyn), a bill co-sponsor.

WELLS FARGO VP IS A CHAMPION FOR HISPANIC INCLUSION / JOHN N. MCGUIRE / AL DÍA
For Jose Gomez, growing up in West Kensington in the 1980s had its challenges. It was an era when drugs and crime were notoriously prevalent in the Philadelphia neighborhood, creating an environment that was not the most conducive for a young man with high educational and professional aspirations. Gomez, now a Vice President at Wells Fargo (link is external) and leader within the company’s Enterprise Information Technology division, credits the strong Latino community in West Kensington for helping him persevere through these often problematic times. He is especially grateful to his family. As migrants from Puerto Rico, Gomez’s father worked 10 to 12 hours a day as a maintenance supervisor while his mother oversaw the household.

ICYMI: HOW LANDLORDS ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS AFTER HARVEY / KERI BLAKINGER / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
This week's in-depth and investigative reporting includes a look at how some landlords are taking advantage of undocumented immigrants after Harvey, how federal hand-me-down equipment was used in the storm and whether charities have gotten all their promised donations. Residents say landlords take advantage of their undocumented status. By Lomi Kriel and Roque Planas. @lomikriel and @roqplanas. In the aftermath of one of the nation's most destructive natural disasters, the region's more than half a million immigrants without legal status are often left most vulnerable. They qualify for little in the way of state and federal aid, and many are afraid to seek help at all, fearing deportation.

DACA STUDENTS WEIGH THE VALUE OF SPEAKING OUT WHEN DEPORTATION IS AT STAKE / GRETEL KAUFFMAN / CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR
When Ms. Amorim, a sophomore at Eastern Connecticut State University, first opened the email from an advisor asking for undocumented students to speak to a reporter about Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), she hesitated to volunteer. She’d avoided publicly exposing herself as undocumented in the past, cautioned by her mother and deterred by the arrest of a friend. But in the current political moment, with the fate of DACA up in the air, she felt compelled to speak out. “We have this time where Congress can really do something about DACA and hopefully, maybe, change something for the better,” explains Amorim, whose family moved to the United States from Brazil when she was 5 years old. “I feel like it’s really important to have my story out there so people can somewhat understand and sympathize with our cause.” Throughout his campaign, President Trump repeatedly signaled that he would not revoke DACA, which granted temporary protection to some 800,000 undocumented young people who were brought to the US as children and allowed them to apply for work permits.

USE OF SPANISH DECLINES AMONG LATINOS IN MAJOR U.S. METROS / JENS MANUEL KROGSTAD AND MARK HUGO LOPEZ / PEW RESEARCH CENTER
More than 37 million Latinos in the U.S. speak Spanish at home, making it the country’s most common non-English language. But while the number of Latinos who speak Spanish at home continues to increase due to the overall growth of the Latino population, the share of Latinos who speak the language has declined over the past decade or so: 73% of Latinos spoke Spanish at home in 2015, down from 78% in 2006, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of Census Bureau data. The national decline in Spanish use among Latinos extended to all of the top 25 U.S. metro areas with the largest population of Latinos ages 5 and older. The San Antonio-New Braunfels and Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale metro areas had some of the largest declines, with the shares who spoke Spanish in each declining by 9 percentage points.

ARMY'S FIRST HISPANIC FOUR-STAR GENERAL DIES / ALEXANDRIA RODRIGUEZ / USA TODAY
The man who was raised by a cowhand on King Ranch and eventually became the United States Army's first Hispanic four-star general has died. Richard Edward Cavazos, 88, died Sunday. He was living in the Army Residence Community in San Antonio. He is survived by his wife, Caroline, said Bill Fee, who served under Cavazos during the Vietnam War in 1967. "The infantry men he led in Vietnam have been close to him ever since we got back from Vietnam," Fee said. "He's been a tremendous supporter of us ever since we got back. He's a remarkable gentleman." The general also was the first Hispanic to attain the rank of brigadier general, according to biography.com. Cavazos spent most of his childhood on King Ranch with his father, a World World I veteran and foreman of the ranch's Santa Gertrudis division, the San Antonio Express-News reported in 2016.

OU DAY OF THE DEAD FESTIVAL CELEBRATES HISPANIC CULTURE, HERITAGE / HALEIGH LAO / OU DAILY
Complete with vibrantly colored decorations, music and performances, this year’s Day of the Dead Street Festival took place on Oct. 29 at the the Lloyd Noble Center, creating a place for the Norman community to gather and celebrate. The Lloyd Noble Center was transformed by Latino Student Life and volunteers from the OU Hispanic American Student Association. What once was a quiet parking lot became a bustling activity of students and families from the Norman community roaming around to visit food trucks, carnival rides, face painting booths and listen to live mariachi band music. Gumaro Lopez, who came with his family, heard about the festival through his daughter who is a student at OU. His two nieces and nephew came with him. While this was his family’s first time at the festival, they plan to come again next year. “So far we’ve listened to the music, eaten and gone to the rides with the kids,” he said.

UNIFOR DENONCE «L'EXPLOITATION DES TRAVAILLEURS MEXICAINS» EN MARGE DES RENEGOCIATIONS DE L'ALENA / JOURNAL DE MONTREAL
Le président du syndicat Unifor Jerry Dias et le secrétaire américain du Commerce Wilbur Ross se sont entendus pour dire, lundi, que les salaires des travailleurs mexicains devront être revus à la hausse pour que les trois pays signataires de l'Accord de libre-échange nord-américain (ALENA) parviennent à s'entendre. «Il est clairement reconnu que les travailleurs canadiens et américains ont été négativement touchés par la délocalisation des emplois manufacturiers au Mexique. Nous avons convenu que le Canada et les États-Unis doivent travailler ensemble pour exercer des pressions sur le Mexique afin qu'il hausse les salaires de façon importante, sinon il sera confronté à des mesures de représailles conjointes», a affirmé le leader syndical par communiqué après une rencontre avec M. Ross qui s'est tenue à Washington.

NUMBERS OF NEWCOMERS IN 2018 NOT ONLY QUESTION FOR IMMIGRATION PLAN / STEPHANIE LEVITZ / THE NATIONAL POST
A possible clue to how the federal Liberal government will arrive at its annual immigration targets for 2018, to be unveiled Wednesday, can be found in a similar provincial plan unveiled just last week. Quebec — which sets its own immigration targets in connection with the federal government — is aiming to bring in some 51,000 people, a target that is unchanged from 2017. That has observers saying they expect the federal numbers for next year to remain largely in line with the 2017 goal of 300,000 newcomers, though a slight bump is likely. Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen offered no details Monday. “The main priority will be to focus very strongly on the real need of employers, and many sectors of the economy, saying we need immigration,” Hussen said before question period.

IMMIGRATION LAW IS THE NEW PERSONAL INJURY LAW / JOSHUA SLAYEN / THE HUFFINGTON POST
It's a classic scenario for an immigration lawyer; you take over a file where there were critical mistakes made by the previous immigration professional. The mistakes led to a refusal of an application, and the clients are now facing deportation. Many people work their entire lives to come to Canada. They put their hopes, trust and savings into an immigration professional that promises to deliver results. In reality, immigration law is complicated with several moving parts, constant changes in law and policy, and unpredictable results. The consequences of a professional error can be dire for applicants. For instance, the error can lead to loss of immigration status, which can lead to the inability to work and earn income, loss of opportunity to sponsor family members and/or deportation from Canada. At law, these consequences are referred to as "damages."

GERMAN FDP LEADER PRESSES GREENS TO COMPROMISE ON IMMIGRATION / REUTERS
Germany’s Greens need to compromise on immigration policy if talks on forming a new governing coalition are to succeed, the leader of the Free Democrats (FDP) said, putting the chances of a deal at 50-50. Chancellor Angela Merkel is trying to form a coalition with the FDP and Greens after her conservatives lost support to the far right in a federal election last month. The three-way alliance is untested at national level. “I still see the biggest differences with the Greens,” FDP leader Christian Lindner said of immigration policy in an interview with the Rheinische Post newspaper. “Germany is at the limit of what the majority are ready to provide in humanitarian aid,” he said, adding that “realism cannot be sacrificed in a readiness for coalition.”
