MÉXICO ES MÁS GRANDE QUE EL TLCAN: VIDEGARAY / MILENIO
La postura de México siempre ha sido congruente con el libre comercio, y al tiempo que renegocia el Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN) amplía sus horizontes comerciales en distintas direcciones como el TPP, aseveró el canciller Luis Videgaray. Expuso que, por supuesto, “creemos que es mejor el futuro económico del país con una buena renegociación, pero si ésta no se logra tenemos que estar preparados”, pues “México es más grande que el TLCAN, hay vida después del TLCAN”.

MIGRANTES AYUDAN CON RECONSTRUCCIÓN DE CASAS DAÑADAS EN MORELOS / JUSTINO MIRANDA / EL UNIVERSAL
Por más de 50 años, Macaria vivió en una casa de adobe que construyó con su esposo Elpidio en la colonia la Nopalera en Yautepec, donde nacieron y crecieron sus 13 hijos, pero el temblor que sacudió a Morelos el 19 de septiembre derribó su hogar. Los ojos de Macaria reflejan la tristeza que lleva al ver la destrucción de su patrimonio pero agradece a Dios porque hubo ángeles que vieron por ella, y hace un mes las asociaciones civiles “El Ojo de Colibrí”, “Ayúdame a ayudar” y “Ángeles de Morelos” ofrecieron ayuda para la reconstrucción de viviendas.

MILLONES DE DÓLARES INGRESAN A MÉXICO POR REMESAS / DEBATE
Actualmente el tema político entre Estados Unidos y México se ha tornado un tanto complejo, debido a las medidas que el presidente Donald Trump ha tomado durante su administración. Sin embargo, a decir de los economistas, la situación ha provocado que los migrantes mexicanos que actualmente radican en el país vecino se estén viendo obligados a enviar más remesas que en años anteriores, lo que ha beneficiado a los hogares que tienen familiares en el extranjero.

VENDERÁN A DREAMERS “SUEÑO MEXICANO” EN GUADALAJARA / ANDRÉS GALLEGOS / INFORMADOR
De acuerdo a Bismarck Lepe, fundador y director general de la empresa de tecnología Wizeline, con 300 de sus 400 empleos creados en Guadalajara, se trabaja en atraer a cien empresas de Silicon Valley a la capital tapatía, las cuales crearían dos mil empleos. Entre estos empleos, se buscará que los cubran los llamados "dreamers", los hijos de migrantes radicados en Estados Unidos, quienes son muy valorados por su dominio del idioma inglés, y en varios casos, por sus habilidades en tecnologías electrónicas y creación de software. "El sueño americano ya está en México", aseguró el empresario.

LA FIRMA MEXICANA QUE QUIERE QUE LOS LATINOS YA NO USEN EFECTIVO / ABRAHAM GONZÁLEZ / EL FINANCIERO
Ante una tendencia internacional donde disminuye el uso del efectivo, la mexicana MobileCard busca conquistar al mercado hispano en Estados Unidos y América Latina con una aplicación de pagos y otros servicios que no utilizan dinero físico y pueden ser transfronterizos. La tecnología detrás de la compañía es similar a la que se utiliza en algunos países asiáticos, como en China, en donde a través de un código QR se pueden comprar productos tanto en un puesto ambulante como en establecimientos comerciales o restaurantes.

ESTADOS UNIDOS


ROBERT GATES: ENDING DACA WILL HURT IMMIGRANT TROOPS / ROBERT M. GATES / THE NEW YORK TIMES
During the nearly five years that I was secretary of defense, 2,621 immigrants serving in the United States military became naturalized citizens while deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan. More than 100 immigrant troops have made the supreme sacrifice in combat during those wars. In that same period, from 2006 to 2011, a total of 45,700 immigrants who wore the uniform of the American military all across the world became American citizens. I was honored to serve alongside all of them, and humbled by their sense of duty, by their willingness to risk life and limb for a country they yearned to call their own. I attended a number of naturalization ceremonies for these soldiers, Marines, airmen and sailors.

25 DEMS VOW TO BLOCK SPENDING WITHOUT DREAM ACT / RAFAEL BERNAL / THE HILL
House Democrats are escalating their threat to oppose a year-end spending bill unless it includes deportation relief for more than 1 million immigrants brought to the country without legal permission as kids. A group of 25 House Democrats said Wednesday they won’t vote for any government spending bill, risking a shutdown, unless Congress passes the Dream Act — a measure that would provide permanent residency and a path to citizenship to that group of immigrants. Reps. Luis Gutiérrez (Ill.), Raul Grijalva (Ariz.) and Adriano Espaillat (N.Y.) penned an op-ed in The Hill Wednesday taking that stance. They shared the text with their Democratic colleagues, 22 of whom decided to endorse the idea, according to Gutiérrez. “We didn’t lobby, we didn’t do anything,” Gutiérrez said. “Had we tried, we’d have many, many more.”

WHITE HOUSE CONTINUES TO STRIP DUE PROCESS FROM IMMIGRATION COURTS / GREGORY CHEN / THE HILL
Arguably no previous administration has been more hostile to the judiciary than the Trump administration. The president himself has aggressively criticized courts that have ruled against him, sometimes resorting to personal attacks calling specific judges “political,” “ridiculous,” “so-called” judges, even referencing a federal judge’s Mexican heritage. In addition to the president’s own comments, his administration is apparently implementing a systematic plan to dramatically undermine judicial independence and due process in immigration cases. At a Nov. 1 hearing on the immigration courts, ranking Democrat John Conyers said new administration plans will turn the courts into “a forced march toward deportation.”

HOW TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION UNDER TRUMP / ANDY J. SEMOTIUK / FORBES
While a good majority, around 60 percent of Americans, are willing to allow illegal immigrants to stay in the United States, subject to some sort of provision to deal with their unlawful status, there are some Americans, those who support President Trump in particular, who are tired of illegal immigrants in this country and want them removed, pure and simple. Which way is the right way to handle the problem? When considering this question it is important to distinguish between criminals and those immigrants who entered this country unlawfully, or who have overstayed their period of authorized stay. To be more specific, of the 11 million unlawful immigrants in the United States, about one million have committed some sort of criminal offense.

FROM ILLEGAL ALIEN TO UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT. ORWELL WOULD HAVE BEEN PROUD / VICTOR DAVIS HANSON / THE NEWSWEEK
Vocabulary changes always reflect the agendas of a political debate. The fight over illegal immigration plays out by altering words and their meanings. Take the traditional rubric “illegal alien.” The English has been clear and exact for nearly a century: illegal alien (cf. Latin alienus ) was a descriptive term for any foreigner who crossed the US border without coming through customs to obtain proper legal sanction. Illegal alien, then, was a politically neutral, exact, and descriptive term: one used by both the Supreme Court and Internal Revenue Service. But open-borders advocates did not like the adjective and noun because they accurately emphasized both illegality and the foreignness of those arriving into the United States from another country.

Yvanna Cancela, D-Las Vegas, and Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada E#xecutive Director Barbara Buckley are among seven people scheduled to speak at a program launching ceremony next week.

LOCAL ARTISTS COME TOGETHER TO DEPICT IMMIGRANT STORIES / CHRISTIAN MCPHATE / THE DALLAS OBSERVER
The latest project of Kavita Khandekar, the deputy director of the nonprofit Human Rights Initiative of North Texas, began as a fever dream. She and her coworkers at the small agency wanted to host a large-scale fundraiser, but they didn't want to do a big gala or luncheon like other nonprofits. For a long time, Khandekar says, they knew the value of hiring artists to help their clients tell their stories. As part of a program called Make Art with Purpose, the Human Rights Initiative of North Texas teamed up with photographer Jin-Ya Huang in 2013 to create abstract art that reflected some of its clients' experiences. Huang's artwork still hangs in the agency's lobby. “From that point on, it was rattling around in our brain,” Khandekar says.

TEXAS EXECUTES MEXICAN NATIONAL DESPITE INTERNATIONAL OUTCRY / KERI BLAKINGER / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Amid international outcry and claims of global treaty violations, Texas on Wednesday executed a Mexican national who has long professed his innocence in the rape and murder of his 16-year-old cousin in the Rio Grande Valley 20 year ago. Ruben Cardenas Ramirez thanked his lawyers and declared his innocence one last time before he was pronounced dead at 10:26 p.m. "I love you all very much. And I know that you love me too. Life does go on," he told his family in a written statement just before his execution. "I will not and cannot apologize for someone else's crime, but, I will be back for justice! You can count on that." In the days before the 47-year-old's death, Mexican officials held press conferences in Mexico City and Houston, decrying the execution they said followed from flagrant disregard for international law.

CANADIANS LEERY OF MASS IMMIGRATION / CANDICE MALCOLM / TORONTO SUN
The Trudeau government introduced its 2018 immigration plan last week, and we were told the Liberals were ushering in “the most ambitious immigration levels in recent history.” The feds announced Canada would welcome one million newcomers in the next three years – and that’s just counting permanent residents who are on track to become citizens. The government will also issue hundreds of thousands of visas for guest workers, students, and other visitors to our country. There is a problem, however, with increasing immigration to historic highs: Canadians have never been more skeptical of mass immigration. Alongside its consultation process for determining immigration levels and the mix of immigrants selected, the government polled Canadians on their attitudes toward immigration.

IMMIGRATION: L’ONTARIO FRANCOPHONE NE VEUT PLUS ETRE OUBLIE / BENJAMIN VACHET / ONTARIO FRANCOPHONIE
«Du côté des réfugiés syriens, la lacune qu’il y a eu, selon moi, c’est que le fait français n’a jamais été mentionné, alors que ces gens-là arrivaient sans parler ni l’anglais, ni le français. Du côté des demandeurs d’asile haïtiens, je pense que les gouvernements ont été un peu débordés», explique le président de l’Assemblée de la francophonie de l’Ontario (AFO), Carol Jolin, en marge de l’édition 2017 du Forum provincial sur l’immigration francophone, le mercredi 8 novembre. Pour le président de l’organisme porte-parole des francophones de l’Ontario, il s’agit d’une occasion manquée, alors que la province cherche à attirer annuellement, sans succès depuis 2012, 5 % de francophones parmi ses immigrants.

«IL Y AURA UNE VIE APRES L’ALÉNA», ESTIME LE MEXIQUE / LE DEVOIR
Le Mexique a déclaré jeudi qu’il y aurait « une vie après l’ALÉNA » alors que le président américain Donald Trump a lancé la renégociation ce traité de libre-échange nord-américain qui unit commercialement les États-Unis au Canada et au Mexique. En route pour Danang au Vietnam pour le sommet annuel des pays de l’Asie-Pacifique (APEC), Luis Videgaray, ministre mexicain des Affaires étrangères, a expliqué que son pays se préparait à un échec des négociations concernant l’ALÉNA. « Le Mexique est plus grand que l’ALÉNA et il y a une vie après l’ALÉNA », a-t-il déclaré à la presse à bord de son avion, selon une transcription publiée par le gouvernement mexicain.

IMMIGRATION WILL DOMINATE HUNGARY’S 2018 ELECTIONS, ORBAN SAYS / RADOSLAV TOMEK / BLOOMBERG
Hungarian voters will decide in next year’s elections whether they will remain a "free nation" protecting their cultural heritage or join those who are eroding Europe’s traditional values by supporting immigration and integration, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said. Orban has clashed with fellow European Union leaders over his rejection of deeper cooperation among the bloc’s members and refusal to shelter immigrants fleeing war and poverty. The target of international criticism for democratic backsliding, he has kicked off his campaign to win a third consecutive term by lashing out at foreign forces he says are trying to undermine Hungary. Among his top targets have been German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door policy for refugees and Hungarian-born billionaire George Soros.

OASIS DE PAIX RELIGIEUSE AU MUSEE DE L’IMMIGRATION / OLIVIER PRADEL / LE MONDE DES RELIGIONS
En contraste avec une actualité souvent focalisée sur les conflits religieux, une exposition au Musée national de l’histoire de l’immigration (Paris) présente des lieux saints partagés entre judaïsme, christianisme et islam. Quand d’heureuses expériences de coexistence l’emportent sur les tensions. Partager, coexister, communier… L’aspiration au vivre-ensemble, y compris religieux, préoccupe nombre de nos contemporains. Et face à l’intolérance, voire la violence, religieuse, les expériences réussies de « coexistence » sont des signaux bien faibles dans une actualité souvent dominée par les hérauts du « choc des civilisations » ou de l’incompatibilité religieuse.
