LIBERAN A MÁS INMIGRANTES POR SOBRECUPO EN CENTROS / JULIANA HENAO / DIARIO DE JUÁREZ
Las organizaciones de ayuda al inmigrante en El Paso aseguran que en las últimas cuatro semanas se ha incrementado la liberación de indocumentados bajo proceso de deportación, los cuales dependen de sus servicios hasta que se resuelva su situación. Ante este fenómeno y debido a que sus fondos de operación son limitados, estas organizaciones se ven obligadas a recurrir a la comunidad para procurar alimentación, vivienda, vestimenta y servicios médicos básicos a los inmigrantes que acuden con ellas.

PREVÉN DAÑOS A EU Y CANADÁ SI FINALIZA EL TLCAN / EXCELSIOR
Poner fin al Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN) dañaría a las economías de Estados Unidos y Canadá y reduciría su competitividad frente a Asia y Europa, dijo el lunes un reporte emitido por Bank of Montreal. De acuerdo con el informe "El Día Después del TLCAN", un fracaso en la renegociación del acuerdo comercial entre Estados Unidos, Canadá y México llevaría a una reducción neta de 0,2 por ciento en el producto interno bruto (PIB) real de Estados Unidos a lo largo de los próximos cinco años y una reducción de 1 por ciento para la economía canadiense.

“MÉXICO DEBE ABRIR LA PUERTA PARA EL REGRESO DE MIGRANTES” / EL UNIVERSAL
Días después de recibir el Oscar especial por la instalación Carne y arena, Alejandro González Iñárritu charla sobre las reacciones que ha provocado la obra desde su presentación en Cannes y asegura que “el cine no consigue el impacto emocional de la realidad virtual”. “Me sorprende la unanimidad de su impacto emocional. Ninguna película podría haber provocado una respuesta así”, afirmó el realizador, sentado en una sala del Museo de Arte del Condado de Los Ángeles (LACMA), donde la instalación Carne y arena agota cada día las entradas.

GRAHAM, DURBIN SUGGEST TACKING IMMIGRATION POLICY ONTO GOVERNMENT SPENDING BILL / MAEGAN VAZQUEZ / CNN
Sens. Dick Durbin and Lindsey Graham said they believe the Senate can reach a consensus on immigration policy, possibly as part of a year-end government funding bill. Durbin, D-Illinois, said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that he believes Graham could be a part of a bipartisan coalition to pass legislation that would increase border security and legalize the immigration status of individuals who came into the United States illegally as children. "I can tell you, when it comes to border security, we have signed up for that," Durbin said. "Sen. (Chuck) Schumer said that months ago. We believe that there are aspects of border security that Democrats and Republicans can agree on."

WITH CHANCES OF IMMIGRATION DEAL FADING, DREAMER SUPPORTERS MOUNT BIG PUSH / FRANCO ORDONEZ, EMILY CADEI AND ANDREA DRUSCH / SEATTLE TIMES
With prospects dimming for a deal this year to prevent young immigrants brought to the United States as children from deportation, sympathetic groups are planning to push hard over the next few weeks to force the issue back to the top of Washington’s agenda. Activists see their December bid as their last, best shot to save about 800,000 young immigrants protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program from being deported. They face a tough challenge, with the White House distracted by tax legislation and Congress reluctant to act quickly to save the program. Calling it illegal, the administration announced in September that DACA would be terminated after six months to give Congress time to pass a legislative fix that might allow the young immigrants here illegally to stay in the only country many of them have ever known.

IMMIGRANTS NEED BETTER PROTECTION—FROM THEIR LAWYERS / BENJAMIN EDWARDS / THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
This area of law is prone to abuse. It’s difficult to file a bar complaint after you’ve been deported. Walls and travel bans get most of the attention, but there is another serious immigration problem that few talk about: incompetent and predatory immigration lawyers. Such attorneys do enormous harm to immigrants, courts and the federal fisc. This complex problem won’t go away overnight, but the Trump administration can limit the damage. As a group, the private immigration bar now contains the worst lawyers in all of law. A 2011 survey of federal judges by Richard Posner and Albert Yoon found that, of all practice areas appearing.

POLICE IN TRUMP-SUPPORTING TOWNS AID IMMIGRATION OFFICIALS IN CRACKDOWN / MICA ROSENBERG, READE LEVINSON / REUTERS
Dozens of police departments in the United States have been granted new powers, or are seeking them, to check the immigration status of people they arrest, aiding President Donald Trump’s broad crackdown on people living in the country illegally. Since Trump took office in January, 29 departments have joined a special program under which they are deputized to perform some tasks of immigration agents, doubling its size in 10 months, according to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. And the administration hopes that is just the beginning. Documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request show that the administration has also had contact with scores of additional jurisdictions about the program, and 38 of those told Reuters in interviews they have submitted applications for the program or are potentially interested in joining.

CHICAGO IMMIGRATION RAID LEAVES SWISS BAKER SCRAMBLING TO RESTAFF / THOMAS MULIER / BLOOMBERG
A Swiss maker of hamburger buns for McDonald’s Corp. said it’s struggling to run a Chicago bakery after it lost a third of its workers in a clampdown on 800 immigrants without sufficient documentation. About 35 percent of the workers at Cloverhill Bakery had to be replaced, according to Zurich-based Aryzta AG. The company, which makes baked goods for fast-food chains and supermarkets, said the employees were supplied by a job-placement agency that faced federal audits earlier this year. “It’s proceeding very, very slowly because it’s like having a brand new factory and a brand new workforce,” Chief Executive Officer Kevin Toland said on a call with analysts. “That’s presenting a lot of challenges, as you can imagine.”

INSTEAD OF DEPORTING THE UNDOCUMENTED, PRESIDENT TRUMP SHOULD INSURE THEM / KUNAL SINDHU / THE HUFFINGTON POST
My patient, from Europe, had a problem: his stump was infected. Years ago, homeless and lost in a country he did not truly know, he had taken to sleeping outside a train station at night. While this strategy served him well in the summer, it failed him horribly in the winter. On a particularly frigid night, armed with little else than a thin sheet masquerading as a blanket, he developed a severe case of frostbite. By the time he got to the hospital, it was too late: his leg had to be amputated. As traumatic as the loss of a limb had been, my patient adapted to his new life relatively well. He had become an expert at using a wheelchair and found a stable housing situation. All things considered, things were going pretty well for him by the time he noticed the pus oozing from his stump.

U.S. BID TO INCLUDE MEXICO REFORM IN NAFTA STALLS TELECOM TALKS / ANTHONY ESPOSITO, JULIA LOVE / REUTERS
A U.S. proposal to enshrine measures targeting Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim’s America Movil thwarted NAFTA negotiators’ goal to reach a deal on telecommunications issues during the latest talks, according to three sources with knowledge of the matter. The U.S. proposal would codify Mexico’s telecommunications reform in the North America Free Trade Agreement, including a policy to bar America Movil from charging competitors such as AT&T for calls to its network, the sources said. The policy, a central part of a 2014 effort aimed at loosening Slim’s grip on telecommunications in Mexico, was later abandoned by the government after the country’s Supreme Court ruled in August that America Movil’s interconnection rates should be set by the telecommunications regulator, not legislators.

BISHOP DRIVES POPE’S PRO-IMMIGRANT MESSAGE HOME IN ROCKY MOUNTAINS / SHANNON LEVITT / CRUX NOW
This week, Pope Francis released his annual message for the Church’s World Day of Peace, and, unsurprisingly for a pope who’s the son of immigrants and who’s made the welfare of migrants and refugees a constant focus of his papacy, the message focused on people on the move. “Those who, for what may be political reasons, foment fear of migrants instead of building peace, are sowing violence, racial discrimination and xenophobia, which are matters of great concern for all those concerned for the safety of every human being,” the pontiff said. Francis may not have known it, but some 5,500 miles away in Denver, Auxiliary Bishop Jorge Rodriguez was already preparing to bring that message to the grassroots in the Rocky Mountains by celebrating a “First Annual Mass for Immigrants and Refugees” at Denver’s Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception on Sunday, Nov. 26.

LUZ Y HUMOR COMO MUESTRA DEL RECHAZO DE ARTISTAS HACIA EL MURO DE TRUMP / LA OPINIÓN
Un grupo de artistas estadounidenses encontró en la luz y el humor una forma de manifestar su rechazo a la propuesta del presidente Donald Trump construir un muro fronterizo entre México y Estados Unidos. “El humor siempre ha sido una forma de desinflar estas acusaciones exageradas por parte del gobierno sobre la frontera” dijo hoy a Efe Jill Marie Holslin, también catedrática de la Universidad Estatal de San Diego (SDSU). Desde el lado de Tijuana (México), el grupo proyectó imágenes en luz hacia EEUU, donde se levantan cerca de San Diego (California) los recién construidos ocho prototipos de lo que podría ser el muro prometido por Trump.

THE LUNCH CROWD LOVES THIS NEW ALBANY MEXICAN RESTAURANT / DANIELLE GRADY / NEWS AND TRIBUNE
La Tiendita on Market wasn’t supposed to be a restaurant. Daniel Martinez, 22, opened the New Albany business as a Hispanic grocery store in January, something he thought the area needed. But the small space, previously home to Aladdin’s Cafe, is situated neatly next to several large downtown places-of-work: the City-County Building, the Lee H. Hamilton Federal Building/U.S. Courthouse and more. Soon, Martinez was bombarded by requests from walk-ins for food. Owen Heritage, who works at the federal building, was one of those many. “I started to try and say, ‘please, please think about it,’ and I think others said it too,” he said.

FOREIGN STUDENTS CLAIM ABUSE OF P.E.I. BUSINESS IMMIGRATION PROGRAM / MICHAEL TUTTON / THE STAR
The 24-year-old Chinese man sits down at a living room table in Charlottetown, and begins to fill a page of legal-sized paper with diagrams and notes. He is explaining life as an employee at two businesses set up under P.E.I.’s controversial business immigration system. First, there was the trading company that required he pay high-priced rent of $1,500 for a small apartment belonging to the firm’s owner, largely using up his $2,000 salary, he says, drawing arrows back and forth on the page. He shows each bank transaction for the payments on his smart phone. Then, there was the more recent job at a service firm, where the owner asked him to return about $500 monthly of his salary, he added, drawing a circle around the “two hours a day,” to emphasize what he’d be returning in cash.

IMMIGRATION: «LE SOCLE DE NOTRE PAYS» / ZACHARIE GOUDREAULT / JOURNAL METRO
Les débats sur l’immigration ne manquent pas. La montée de l’extrême droite en Europe, la révocation du statut temporaire de milliers de réfugiés aux États-Unis par l’administration Trump et, au Québec, l’adoption de la loi sur la neutralité religieuse alimentent les discussions publiques sur les nouveaux arrivants. Encore samedi, une manifestation a opposé des groupes identitaires de droite à des militants antifascistes à Québec. Mais si notre perception des immigrants est parfois négative, qu’en est-il de leurs apports positifs? Métro a tenté d’en savoir plus à ce sujet et, du même coup, de déboulonner quelques mythes.
