SIN DACA, 300 MIL 'DREAMERS' QUEDARÁN DESEMPLEADOS / DIARIO DE JUÁREZ
Cerca de 300 mil indocumentados amparados bajo la Acción Diferida (DACA) perderán sus empleos en los 9 meses siguientes a que este programa expire en marzo de 2018, según un estudio presentado hoy por un grupo creado por líderes de empresas tecnológicas de Estados Unidos, FWD.us, escribió la agencia EFE. Según su presidente, Todd Schulte, Estados Unidos sufrirá consecuencias "dramáticas y devastadoras" si el Congreso no actúa y salvar de la ilegalidad a miles de indocumentados que quedarán desprotegidos a partir del 6 de marzo, cuando expira DACA, aunque unos 22 mil ‘dreamers’ ya perdieron este amparo y están en riesgo de deportación.

REMESAS Y MIGRANTES, PUNTO DÉBIL PARA MÉXICO EN EL TLCAN / LETICIA FLORIAN ARRIAGA / CAMBIO DE MICHOACAN
Si bien Michoacán tiene con el rubro agrícola una carta fuerte en el Tratado del Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN), la migración y las remesas podrían ser de los temas que tengan el peor impacto en renegociación, consideró el doctor en Ciencias con especialidad Desarrollo Regional, Carlos Francisco Ortiz Paniagua. En el espacio de Voces de Cambio, conducido por Marx Aguirre Ochoa, el también miembro del Sistema Nacional de Investigadores del Conacyt explicó que si bien ha representado grandes beneficios, el TLCAN también ha quedado a deber a Estados Unidos, Canadá y a México en torno a las expectativas que se generaron con su creación.

BOWSER ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP TO HELP D.C. EMPLOYEES, FAMILIES BECOME CITIZENS / RACHEL CHASON / THE WASHINGTON POST
The District plans to help up to 2,000 green-card holders who work for the D.C. government, and their family members, apply for U.S. citizenship, Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) said Tuesday. Speaking at a naturalization ceremony Tuesday morning, Bowser said the city is joining with the National Immigration Forum to provide information sessions, legal help, assistance finding language classes and coaching for the citizenship test. She said she hopes the program would inspire area businesses to make similar commitments to their employees. The District is the eighth city to participate in the program, joining Los Angeles, Houston, Miami and others, said Jennie Murray, director of integration programs at the National Immigration Forum.

GREEN'S RETIREMENT MEANS HOUSTON COULD SEND FIRST LATINO TO CONGRESS / REBECCA ELLIOTT / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Gene Green's retirement opens the door for Harris County to send its first Latino representative to Congress, a milestone that has been a long time coming in a region that is more than 40 percent Hispanic. In fact, Green's 29th Congressional District was drawn in 1991 to reflect the area's Hispanic population but never has elected a Latino representative. Interest in succeeding the longtime Democrat already is fierce. State Sen. Sylvia Garcia and state Rep. Armando Walle threw their hats in the ring Tuesday to represent the district that covers much of eastern Houston and part of Pasadena. State Rep. Carol Alvarado is considering running, and former Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia has asked the county party for filing paperwork.

POPULISM AND IMMIGRATION POSE MAJOR THREAT TO GLOBAL DEMOCRACY, STUDY SAYS / REBECCA RATCLIFFE / THE GUARDIAN
The spread of democracy around the world has slowed over the past decade, according to a report warning that governments are at a “critical juncture”. Since 1975, the number of countries with fair democratic systems has more than doubled, from 46 (30% of countries) to 132 (68% of counties). More nations now hold elections than ever before. But progress has slowed over the past decade and, in some countries, it has halted completely, according to a report by the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International Idea). The study warned that democracies face new threats such as the rise of populism, immigration, growing inequality, and the emergence of technologies that can be manipulated by governments. The reluctance of politicians to respect election results or hand over power peacefully was also identified as an increasing challenge.

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TARGETS AND THEN MOCKS IMMIGRANT WITH PROSTHETIC LEG / NICOLE RODRIGUEZ / NEWSWEEK
A 20-year-old undocumented immigrant with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status and only one leg has been detained by federal immigration agents and held without charges for over a month, treated inhumanely and mocked for his prosthetic leg, an immigrant advocacy group says. Felipe Abonza-Lopez of San Marcos, Texas–detained by Customs and Border Protection agents on October 11 as part of a human smuggling investigation–would be the second disabled undocumented immigrant in less than a month to be detained by federal immigration agents. The first internationally-publicized case involved 10-year-old Rosa Maria Hernandez, who was detained on October 24 en route to Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi from her home in Laredo, Texas, for emergency gallbladder surgery.

COURTHOUSE ARRESTS OF IMMIGRANTS BY ICE AGENTS HAVE RISEN 900% IN NEW YORK THIS YEAR: IMMIGRATION DEFENSE PROJECT / STEPHEN REX BROWN / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Sightings of ICE agents at courthouses across the state have surged from 11 to 110, compared with last year, advocates say. In 2016, the Immigrant Defense Project documented 11 arrests or attempted arrests by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents around the state. This year the number has spiked by 900%, with most in New York City — including one arrest on Tuesday in Brooklyn Criminal Court. “The exponential increase in ICE courthouse arrests reflects a dangerous new era in enforcement and immigrant rights violations,” Immigrant Defense Project attorney Lee Wang said. “Immigrants seeking justice in the criminal, family and civil courts should not have to fear for their freedom when doing so.”

YARL'S WOOD IMMIGRATION CENTRE: QUESTIONS OVER NEED TO DETAIN WOMEN / BBC NEWS
Two-thirds of women held at an immigration removal centre are later released into the community, a watchdog report has revealed. Inspectors said the finding raised concerns about whether the women should have been detained at Yarl's Wood, Bedfordshire, in the first place. The assessment was carried out by HM Inspectorate of Prisons (HMIP) in June. The Home Office said: "Detention and removal are essential parts of effective immigration controls." A report on the inspection in June found during the previous six months, excluding men, 542 (21%) detainees had been removed from the centre, 295 (12%) had been transferred to other places of detention and 1,721 (67%) had been released. Inspectors said the high percentage of women released "raised questions about the justification for detention in the first place".

IMMIGRANT WORKERS IN U.S. HAVE TRIPLED RISK FOR HEAT-RELATED DEATH / CAROLYN CRIST / REUTERS
Compared to U.S. citizens, immigrants have more than three times the risk of dying from heat-related illness - with the majority of deaths occurring in just three states, according to a recent study. The risk is greatest among Hispanic immigrants and those between ages 18 and 24, a group of researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report online October 26 in the American Journal of Public Health. “Three states (Arizona, California and Texas) accounted for 94.5% of non-citizen heat deaths,” senior study author Rebecca Noe, of the CDC’s Division of Environmental Hazards and Health Effects at the National Center for Environmental Health in Atlanta, said in an email. “States where heat deaths are commonly occurring should consider tailoring heat prevention messages,” she told Reuters Health.

STUDY: LATINO PARENTS WORRY ABOUT IMPACT OF SCIENCE EDUCATION ON FAITH / MONICA RHOR / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Do some religiously conservative Latinos worry that science educators could harm their children's faith? A new study from researchers at Rice University seems to suggest that. The study, conducted by Daniel Bolger, a Rice doctoral student, and Elaine Howard Ecklund, founding director of the Religion and Public Life Program and the Herbert S. Autrey Chair in Social Sciences, looked at the relationship between STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education and religious faith. The researchers focused on the perspective of blacks and Latinos, groups that are underrepresented in the STEM field, and often not included in research examining the relationship between science and faith. They interviewed 40 participants -- 14 Latinos and 26 African-Americans -- from four religious congregations in two urban areas.

CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY BUYS LAND ON MEXICAN BORDER TO STUMP TRUMP'S WALL PLAN / AARON SMITH / CNN
Cards Against Humanity, an irreverent card game company known for its attention-seeking pranks, says it bought land on the U.S.-Mexico border to block President Trump from building his wall. The Chicago company said on its website that this was part of a holiday promotion, for which customers could contribute to the wall-blocking project with $15 purchases for surprise gift packages. On Wednesday morning, just a few hours after the launching the program on Tuesday, Cards Against Humanity said it was sold out. "Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans," said Cards Against Humanity on its web site. "He is so afraid that he wants to build a twenty-billion dollar wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing. So we've purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built."

L’IMMIGRATION, GRANDE OUBLIEE DE LA POLITIQUE DE LA VILLE VERSION MACRON / LAURENT CHALARD / ATLANTICO
Emploi francs, resserrement des territoires prioritaires aux quartiers prioritaires, soutiens aux crèches... Le plan de politique de la ville présenté par Emmanuel Macron mardi 14 novembre à Tourcoing correspond-il aux besoins du terrain ? Laurent Chalard : Le plan de la politique de la ville présenté par Emmanuel Macron n’apporte rien de bien nouveau par rapport à ce qui se faisait auparavant, étant loin d’être « révolutionnaire », contrairement aux ambitions affichées par le Président de la République dans d’autres domaines, en particulier sur le plan économique. En effet, Emmanuel Macron, qui à sa décharge n’est pas du tout un spécialiste du sujet, a choisi de ne pas changer de paradigme, en continuant de dépenser massivement de l’argent dans une politique que la majorité des experts juge inefficace, plutôt que de s’attaquer au fond du sujet, qui est la question de la gestion de l’immigration extra-européenne, dont les quartiers paupérisés des grandes métropoles sont le principal réceptacle.

'HELP NEWCOMERS FEEL AT HOME': P.E.I. PLANS TO BOOST POPULATION THROUGH IMMIGRATION / KEVIN BISSETT / THE STAR
Prince Edward Island — Canada’s smallest but fastest-growing province — is promising measures to get more immigrants to come, and stay. The Island’s population topped 152,000 this year, and the government has set the goal of reaching 160,000 by 2022. “My government has set ambitious targets for near and long-term population growth,” the government said in its throne speech, read by Lt.-Gov. Antoinette Perry Tuesday as she opened the fall session of the legislature. “In the coming year, my government will take further steps to maximize retention rates for new immigrants.” According to Statistics Canada, the population of P.E.I. grew 1.7 per cent between July 2016 to July 2017. Nationally, growth was 1.2 per cent. The government said it is working with municipalities to develop “welcome to the community” initiatives: “The objective is to help newcomers feel at home in Prince Edward Island,” it said.

SPECTRE OF IMMIGRATION SPARKS RIGHTWARD TURN IN ITALY / JAMES POLITI / FINANCIAL TIMES
In September 1944 African-American soldiers from the US Army’s “Buffalo” division helped liberate Cascina from German forces retreating north into the Apennine mountains of Tuscany. For the next 70 years, the town of 45,000 people in the Arno River valley near Pisa was run by leftwing administrations. The region became a byword in Italy for racial tolerance and social democratic politics. Then in June 2016 something surprising happened: Cascina, whose post-war fortunes were built on the now-struggling furniture sector, elected Susanna Ceccardi, a 29-year-old right-wing firebrand from the Eurosceptic Northern League, to be mayor by just 101 votes. Roberto Luppichini, a 50-year-old stallholder at the Monday morning open-air market in Navacchio, which has emerged as a hub of support for Ms Ceccardi, says there is little doubt what triggered this small but significant political earthquake.

« COCO » : FIESTA MEXICAINE A LA VIE A LA MORT / MURIELLE JOUDET / LE MONDE
Deux ans après le vertige cognitif de Vice-Versa (2015) et en attendant Les Indestructibles 2 et Toy Story 4, prévus respectivement pour 2018 et 2019, les studios Pixar poursuivent leur rêve d’une réinvention permanente du cinéma d’animation mêlant expérimentations visuelles et vertiges narratifs d’une puissance émotionnelle rarement égalée. Wall-E (2008), diamant expérimental et kubrickien, montrait à quel point Pixar était soucieux de pousser toujours plus loin les limites jusqu’à faire de chaque nouveau film une aventure métaphysique. Si le studio a toujours été intimement lié à Disney, c’est assez naturellement qu’en 2006, le groupe américain de divertis¬sement le rachète : les enfants de Pixar se situent dans le prolongement de la génération qui a grandi avec les films Walt Disney.

CHAVELA VARGAS, FEMINISME ET TEQUILA / FRANÇOIS-XAVIER GOMEZ / LIBERATION
Alcoolique qui distillait les émotions, la chanteuse mexicaine, icône queer avant la lettre, a vécu de multiples vies que retrace un passionnant documentaire. Malgré deux concerts en France, à Paris en 1994 et à Toulouse dix ans plus tard, sa présence dans plusieurs films d’Almodovar ou dans Frida, le biopic sur Frida Kahlo, malgré aussi l’admiration que lui portaient Lhasa, Lila Downs ou Luz Casal, la Mexicaine Chavela Vargas reste une inconnue pour le public français. Cinq après sa mort (à 93 ans), la sortie du documentaire qui lui est consacré va permettre de découvrir une des plus grandes interprètes de musique populaire du siècle passé, autant qu’une existence marquée par la douleur, les excès et le combat pour la liberté d’aimer.
