MÉXICO ENTREGA BECAS A DREAMERS MEXICANOS EN EU / ZÓCALO
México entregó becas económicas a estudiantes de origen mexicano, incluidos varios “dreamers”, a fin de que puedan comenzar, continuar o finalizar sus estudios superiores en instituciones educativas sin fines de lucro. El canciller de la embajada de México en Washington, José Antonio Zabalgoitia, entregó los cheques con valor total de 41 mil 160 dólares a los estudiantes. “Sabemos que esta cantidad, aunque muy importante para nosotros, no es suficiente para las necesidades que hay en la comunidad, sin embargo, es una semillita que, con el trabajo de ustedes, crecerá y se multiplicará. Ese es el milagro”, dijo Zabalgoitia durante una ceremonia en la sede diplomática. Desde 2001, el programa IME becas ha otorgado apoyos económicos a 68 mil estudiantes inscritos en mil 237 instituciones educativas en Estados Unidos.

SE ESTANCAN NEGOCIACIONES SOBRE DREAMERS / DIARIO DE JUÁREZ
La decisión de dos de los principales demócratas del país de retirarse de una reunión el martes en la Casa Blanca no indica la sentencia de muerte para una legislación para proteger a los jóvenes indocumentados de la deportación, dicen los legisladores y analistas de políticas. Pero cada día sin una solución legislativa significa que hay miles de inmigrantes indocumentados que podrían estar en riesgo de ser expulsados de Estados Unidos en cualquier momento, incluso si los legisladores finalmente pueden enviar un proyecto de ley al presidente.

En su búsqueda del sueño americano, los inmigrantes indocumentados en Estados Unidos viven día a día con el miedo de ser detenidos por agentes migratorios, deportados y separados de sus familias, en especial tras la llegada de Donald Trump a la Casa Blanca. ¿Cómo explicar una situación tan complicada, atemorizante y posiblemente traumática a los niños que son inmigrantes o tienen padres indocumentados?

CANDIDATES LINING UP FOR DALLAS COUNTY SHERIFF IF LUPE VALDEZ RUNS FOR TEXAS GOVERNOR / GROMER JEFFERS JR. / THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS
Dallas County commissioner John Wiley Price said the road to victory would be tough. "She'll do well at whatever she tries to do," Price said. "It's a rough state [for a Democrat]. But you know, hey, anything is possible. I never thought Trump would win. Shows you what I know." Rice University political scientist Mark Jones said Valdez would be a heavy underdog against Abbott with no real chance to win. But he said she could help attract Hispanic voters, bring credibility to the ticket and help down-ballot candidates. "If not win, the hope is that she can do better than Wendy Davis and give a boost to Texas Democrats," Jones said. Valdez vs. Abbott?

WHY REWARDING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IS WRONG / PETER K. NUNEZ / SAN DIEGO UNION TRIBUNE
Several months ago, President Donald Trump ended Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — the unconstitutional program that his predecessor had initiated in 2012 that granted amnesty to those who had been brought to this country illegally as children. President Trump rightly announced that any such relief could only be granted by Congress, which is now considering what action to take, if any. Rewarding bad behavior only assures that it will continue. Whatever relief Congress grants will encourage future illegal immigration. Parents around the world will understand that if they can get here with their minor children, they will — at some point — be granted the right to remain. Congress has granted a variety of amnesties since 1986, all of which have encouraged the highest levels of illegal immigration in history

E-VERIFY? YES. SIMPLY SCREAMING ABOUT IMMIGRATION? JUST PLAIN FOOLISH / SCOTT MAXWELL / ORLANDO SENTINEL
Seven years ago, when Rick Scott was a newcomer to politics and desperate for votes in a Republican primary, he vowed to crack down on illegal immigration. Specifically, he vowed to crack down on employers. If voters would only elect him governor, Scott’s campaign website declared: "Rick will require all Florida employers to use the free E-Verify system to ensure that their workers are legal." Except here’s the thing: He didn’t. As soon as Scott got elected, the agriculture interests that rely on cheap and undocumented workers showered him with more than $440,000 via his political committee and millions more to the Republican Party of Florida. Scott quickly reversed course. He not only abandoned mandatory E-Verify — which would require employers to run potential hires through a federal database to first ensure legal status — he actually began trashing the concept.

QUEST FOR A BETTER LIFE BROUGHT ME TO IMMIGRATION DETENTION / FLORICEL LIBORIO RAMOS / SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
My name is Floricel Liborio Ramos. I am 38 years old, indigenous Huichol and a Mexican citizen. I have gone through many difficult things in my life, but the most difficult has been being in this detention center, where I cannot see or hold my children. I was arrested on March 26 by immigration agents. It was very sad and painful because they arrested me in front of my children. I was locked up with others in a detention center in Richmond and everyone who worked there treated us harshly. At 3 a.m. on July 17, they told us that we would be moved. They left us in a cold room. At 11 a.m., they gave us a sandwich and a bottle of water. There was a woman who was more than 70 years old. And there were people with diabetes. The officials did not give them their diabetes medicine. They did not give us anything.

ARIZONA BORDER PATROL AGENT FATALLY SHOOTS MAN SUSPECTED OF BEING UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT / ADRIAN MARSH / THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC
A man who was suspected of being an undocumented immigrant was shot and killed by a U.S. Border Patrol agent in southern Arizona on Wednesday morning, officials said. The shooting occurred in a remote area of the Baboquivari Mountain Range west of Three Points, which is about 27 miles southwest of Tucson, the U.S. Border Patrol Tucson Sector said in a press release. Just before noon, the Border Patrol agent shot the man after the agent was assaulted by the suspect, the release said. The man was among a group of suspected undocumented immigrants, the statement said. The other three members of the group were taken into custody, officials said. Agents were searching the area for others Wednesday, officials added.

HOW A U.S. CITIZEN WAS MISTAKENLY TARGETED FOR DEPORTATION. HE’S NOT ALONE / JOEL RUBIN AND PAIGE ST. JOHN / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Sergio Carrillo had already been handcuffed in the Home Depot parking lot when an officer wearing a Homeland Security uniform appeared. “Homeland Security?” Carrillo asked. “What do you want with me?” Ignoring Carrillo’s demands for an explanation, the officer ordered the 39-year-old taken to a federal detention facility in downtown Los Angeles for people believed to be in the country illegally. “You’re making a big mistake,” Carrillo recalled saying from the back seat to the officers driving him. “I am a U.S. citizen.” The arrest last year was the start of a perplexing and frightening ordeal for Carrillo, who said in an interview with The Times that immigration officials scoffed at his repeated claims of citizenship and instead opened a case against him in immigration court to have him deported. It would take four days for government officials to concede their mistake and release Carrillo.

PASSING IT ON: THROUGH GENERATIONS, MEXICAN-AMERICAN FAMILY HANDCRAFTS WORLD-CLASS GUITARS / REBEKAH SAGER / NBC NEWS
In a world of high tech phones and cars that drive themselves, quietly in Nashville, Tennessee another generation of a Latino family is continuing an impressive tradition. Only this time, it’s a girl who is learning to become a luthier, or one who makes string instruments. This month, Manuel Delgado’s 9-year-old daughter, Ava Canción, was accepted into the Tennessee Folklife Apprenticeship Program, which encourages the preservation and mastery of a craft; she will be learning under her dad. She will be the youngest in her family and the fourth generation to take up the skill that brought her great-uncle and great-grandfather to the U.S. from Mexico 70 years ago and into fame as guitar makers to rock stars and symphonies alike, with one of their guitars displayed at the Smithsonian. The story of Candelas Guitars and the Delgado family, which makes instruments by hand, starts in Torreón, Mexico, with brothers Porfirio and Candelario Delgado. They built guitars and played music as the duo, Los Hermanos Candelas (the Candelas Brothers).

IMMIGRANT WAGES RISING, BUT GAPS WITH CANADIAN-BORN EARNERS PERSIST / ROBERTO ROCHA, CLAIRE LOEWEN / CBC NEWS
Recent immigrants to Canada are earning more money than ever, according to new Statistics Canada figures. The median income of people who arrived in Canada in 2014 was $24,000 a year later, the highest on record for landed immigrants since 1981. This increase is partly due to the so-called Canadian Experience Class — a centrepiece of the previous Conservative government's economic immigration reforms, which fast-tracks permanent residency for newcomers who already have work experience in Canada. "There are more immigrants coming in through this class," said Statistics Canada senior analyst Scott McLeish. "They already have experience working in Canada in high skills occupations. So they're starting from a different point than other immigrants." Statistics Canada arrived at these numbers by looking at 2015 tax returns from immigrants.

L'IMMIGRATION ET LE SENS DES RESPONSABILITÉS DE NOS GOUVERNANTS / HUFFINGTON POST
Au lieu d'aller vers la recherche de consensus sur des enjeux aussi délicats, on préfère apparemment jouer avec le feu, le nez collé sur l'horizon qui mène aux prochaines élections. Le rapport de la vérificatrice générale sur la performance lamentable, selon elle, du ministère de l'Immigration, de la Diversité et de l'Inclusion a fait couler beaucoup d'encre. Le premier ministre défend l'action de son gouvernement en cette matière en évoquant le cas d'un jeune immigrant syrien, parfaitement intégré dans son nouvel environnement... à Saint-Félicien. On conviendra aisément que l'enjeu de s'adapter dans une région majoritairement francophone n'est pas le même que celui de le faire à Montréal. Où, en passant, s'installent 85% des immigrants.

EU MIGRATION TO THE U.K. PLUMMETED 43% ONE YEAR AFTER BREXIT VOTE / ANDREW ATKINSON / BLOOMBERG
Net migration to the U.K. dropped by a record 106,000 in the year following the Brexit referendum as European Union nationals arrived in fewer numbers, a trend welcomed by some lawmakers and deplored by businesses. Total arrivals outnumbered departures by 230,000 in the 12 months through June, the lowest figure since the end of 2013, the Office for National Statistics in London said. Net migration stood at a record 336,000 in the year before the referendum. EU nationals shunning Britain accounted for much of the change, with net migration from the bloc dropping by 43 percent to 107,000. The 82,000 decline was larger than in any quarter since at least 2010. EU immigration fell by 54,000 to 230,000 and emigration rose by 28,000 to 123,000, the highest since 2008. The shifts were particularly marked among citizens of the central and eastern European nations that joined the bloc since 2004, including Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic.

HOW MUCH DAMAGE WILL LOWER EU IMMIGRATION INFLICT ON THE UK ECONOMY? / BEN CHU / INDEPENDIENT
The latest immigration data from the Office for National Statistics suggests a sizeable fall in net migration into the UK in the year to June 2017, with a fall in net migration from the European Union accounting for most of the drop. “These changes suggest that Brexit is likely to be a factor in people’s decision to move to or from the UK,” said Nicola White from the Office for National Statistics. The ONS said that it is still too early to say whether this fall is the start of a long-term trend of falling immigration. Yet the Conservatives have an explicit pledge to reduce net migration to the tens of thousands. And the end of freedom of movement for EU citizens after Brexit in March 2019 will, ministers claim, enable them to deliver it.

A LA UNE: L’IMMIGRATION AU CŒUR DU SOMMET UA-UE / FRÉDÉRIC COUTEAU / LES VOIX DU MONDE
« Difficile de dire si les terribles images de migrants subsahariens vendus comme esclaves en Libye auront fait office d’électrochoc pour les dirigeants africains et européens, relève Jeune Afrique. Elles auront eu néanmoins pour conséquence immédiate de placer le sujet au cœur des discussions lors de l’ouverture du sommet UA-UE. » Hier, lors de son discours d’ouverture, « le président ivoirien Alassane Dramane Ouattara a appelé l’Union africaine et l’Union européenne 'à mettre fin aux traitements inhumains en Libye'. Il a dénoncé 'une situation totalement inacceptable qui nous rappelle les pires heures de l’histoire de l’humanité', appelant Africains et Européens à 'intensifier les efforts pour démanteler les réseaux de passeurs'. »
