MÉXICO ADVIERTE PRESIONES PRESUPUESTARIAS POR INMIGRANTES / DEBATE
La inmigración ilegal y la repatriación de mexicanos de Estados Unidos podrían generar una presión presupuestaria y política en el país, alertó hoy el Instituto Nacional de Migración de México (INM). Medio millón de personas transitan irregularmente por México cada año y en 2016 fueron puestas bajo custodia 200.000, el 90 % de ellas de países de Centroamérica, reveló Mario Madrazo, director de Control y Verificación Migratoria del INM. El funcionario sostuvo que la inmigración continental es el mayor reto de México, que pasó de recibir personas de 53 países en 2013 a migrantes de 91 naciones en 2016. (…) El director del Instituto de los Mexicanos en el Exterior, Juan Carlos Mendoza Sánchez, reveló durante las jornadas de análisis que más de 12 millones de mexicanos viven fuera del territorio del país, la mitad de los cuales están en situación irregular.

Los 50 millones de niños que emigraron en 2015, más de la mitad huyendo de conflictos armados y violencia, deben recibir protección y acceso a salud, educación y servicios de calidad, advirtió UNICEF.

NO DEJEN QUE UN TUIT DE TRUMP FRENE NEGOCIACIONES SOBRE DACA / DIARIO DE JUÁREZ
Los líderes de la minoría en el Congreso, Nancy Pelosi y Chuck Schumer, no deben estar sorprendidos que Donald Trump haya hecho lo que Donald Trump suele hacer, es decir, tuiteó algo inmoderado y desacertado para tratar de intimidarlos. Y aunque es su prerrogativa abandonar una reunión planificada con el presidente por un tuit, ni ellos ni sus homólogos republicanos en el Congreso deberían permitir que este melodrama los distrajera de aprobar leyes para proteger a los dreamers. Estos 800 mil inmigrantes indocumentados que llegaron a los Estados Unidos cuando eran niños y fueron protegidos de la deportación y se les dio permisos de trabajo durante la administración de Obama ahora enfrentan un futuro incierto.

DEFIENDE VICENTE FOX A DREAMERS / ZOCALO
Para el ex Presidente mexicano Vicente Fox Quesada los dreamers son jóvenes que al adoptar identidades híbridas, fortalecen un mundo globalizado respaldando un nuevo tipo de ciudadanía, postura que compartió en el diario estadounidense The New York Times. Fox acusó a Donald Trump de tener a los latinos como principales objetivos de sus constantes ataques raciales, como la eliminación del Programa de Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA), hecho que le causó gran tristeza, frustración e ira.

DEMOCRATS WANT IMMIGRATION FIX IN SPENDING BILL / STEPHEN DINAN / THE WASHINGTON TIMES
Bumping up against another shutdown deadline, Congress will have to pass a short-term spending bill next week and push big decisions into next year, lawmakers said Thursday — though Democrats said they may still force a shutdown fight over new rights for illegal immigrants. A number of rank-and-file Democrats have said they will not approve any spending bill that doesn’t grant a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrant Dreamers, and have imposed an end-of-year deadline for approving such a bill. That creates a major wrinkle as Republicans try to clear the decks ahead of a Christmas vacation, and as Democrats decide how far they want to go in brinkmanship.“We will pass a short-term [bill] that is necessary to keep the government open, to keep talks going,” said House Speaker Paul D. Ryan. “If the Senate Democrats choose to filibuster that, then they will have chosen to shut the government down, something that we do not want to see happen.”

TRUMP TWEETS ‘BUILD THE WALL’ AFTER IMMIGRANT IS ACQUITTED IN KATHRYN STEINLE CASE / MATT STEVENS, THOMAS FULLER AND CAITLIN DICKERSONNOV / THE NEW YORKT IMES
An undocumented Mexican immigrant was acquitted of murder and manslaughter charges on Thursday in the killing of Kathryn Steinle, whose death while out walking on a San Francisco pier became a touchstone in the national debate over immigration fueled by Donald J. Trump. The man, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, 45, who was also found not guilty of assault with a firearm, was convicted only of being a felon in possession of a firearm after a trial that lasted more than five weeks. His sentence could range from 16 months to three years. Mr. Zarate has already spent more than two years in county jail awaiting trial. A sentencing date had not yet been set. Ms. Steinle’s death in July 2015 fed into a fierce debate over whether immigrants without legal status — Mr. Garcia Zarate had been deported five times — should be dealt with more aggressively, and over the role local law enforcement should play.

U.S. OFFICIALS WORRY IMMIGRANT FEARS COULD MAKE CENSUS INACCURATE / MICA ROSENBERG / REUTERS
Early test surveys have found that some immigrants are afraid to provide information to U.S. Census workers because of fears about being deported, which could compromise the accuracy of the 2020 census, a government official warned this month. There has been an “unprecedented ground swell in confidentiality and data-sharing concerns among immigrants or those who live with immigrants,” Mikelyn Meyers, a researcher at the Census Bureau’s Center for Survey Measurement, told a meeting of the bureau’s National Advisory Committee. The census, which is mandated under the U.S. Constitution and takes place every 10 years, counts every resident in the United States. It is used to determine the allocation by states of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and to distribute billions of dollars in federal funds to local communities.

REP. TONY CARDENAS' FUNDRAISING IS BOOSTING LATINO CLOUT IN DEMOCRATIC RACES / SUZANNE GAMBOA / NBC NEWS
When he campaigned for chairman of the Hispanic Caucus’ political action committee – BOLD PAC – Rep. Tony Cárdenas promised to double, maybe triple the $1 million in its coffers. “People laughed. They voted for me anyway and said ‘You want to try it, do it. Go for it, dude,'" Cárdenas said. He ended up raising $6 million by 2016 and now BOLD PAC is on course to raising $10 million for the caucus to help elect candidates – many of them Latino – to Congress. Last year, six additional Latinos – all backed by BOLD PAC and all Democrats – joined the U.S. House. BOLD PAC also backed Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, the first Latina elected to the U.S. Senate.

HUNDREDS OF MARYLAND DRIVERS LICENSES. IDS, INTENDED FOR UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS, WENT TO PEOPLE WITH FAKE CREDENTIALS / JOSH HICKS / THE WASHINGTON POST
Maryland auditors say the state has issued nearly 600 fraudulent and questionable driver’s licenses and identification cards meant for undocumented immigrants, who have been eligible for the credentials in the state since 2014. It was not clear who received the fraudulent documents; officials said the individuals who obtained them under false pretenses may have been undocumented immigrants, U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. Under a 2014 state law, undocumented immigrants in Maryland can receive driver’s licenses and identification cards by meeting several criteria, including confirming their identity, proving Maryland residency and submitting a verification number that the state comptroller’s office provides after they’ve shown evidence of filing state tax returns for the two previous years.

IMMIGRANT TEEN ‘VERY HAPPY’ TO BE HOME AFTER RELEASE FROM DETENTION / MARK MORALES / NEWS DAY
An immigrant minor from Long Island who was targeted for deportation because of alleged ties to the MS-13 gang was back home in Central Islip on Thursday, a day after an immigration judge in Manhattan ruled that federal officials did not have enough evidence to keep him in custody. “I’m very happy because I’m back home with my mother,” the 16-year-old said in an interview. “It was very difficult. I wasn’t near my mom and I really missed her and my family.” He was picked up in June by immigration officials and held at a children’s center in Dobbs Ferry until the judge on Wednesday ordered that he be freed. He got home on Thursday afternoon.

IMMIGRANT RIGHTS SEMINAR PLANNED IN AURORA / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
State Rep. Linda Chapa LaVia (D-Aurora) and representatives from the American Civil Liberties Union will host a seminar focusing on immigrant rights Dec. 5 in Aurora. The event is set for 5:30 p.m. at La Sierra de Aurora at 2121 E. New York St. in Aurora. "With the current political climate in Washington, it's more important than ever for area residents to have an understanding of what's going on with federal and state programs that relate to immigration," Chapa LaVia said in a press release about the event. "By working with the ACLU and community activists, I hope to provide a strong support system for those who may feel vulnerable as a result of their immigration status or that of their family and friends." The seminar will include information on what individuals can do if stopped by law enforcement, are questioned about their immigration status or are detained by law enforcement.

THIRD IMMIGRANT TAKES SANCTUARY AT LOCAL CHURCH / CHRISTOPHER PEAK / NEW HAVEN INDEPENDENT
A week after one undocumented immigrant emerged from a downtown “sanctuary church,” another took his place Thursday. By moving temporarily into the First & Summerfield Church at Elm and College Streets rather than obey a federal order to leave the country, Nelson Pinos became the third undocumented immigrant to stay in the country by taking shelter in a New Haven church since the Trump administration began targeting law-abiding people— rather than just people with violent criminal records — for arrest and deportation. Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) ordered Pinos to leave Connecticut for his native Ecuador Thursday. Unable to get a stay, the 47-year-old factory worker and father of three, who lives in New Haven’s Annex neighborhood, headed for First & Summerfield.

DOLORES REVIEW – POWERFUL PORTRAIT OF MEXICAN-AMERICAN ACTIVIST / THE GUARDIAN
This documentary nails its case for legendary status to be instantly conferred on the Mexican-American labour activist and feminist Dolores Huerta – the woman who invented the slogan “Yes We Can”, or, as she coined it, Sí Se Puede. For years, Huerta has been overshadowed by Cesar Chavez, the man with whom she had a testy working relationship as they fought David-and-Goliath battles against big business for the rights of exploited labourers in California. Using powerful archive material, the film chronicles Huerta’s life and triumphs. Now 87, she is surprisingly gently spoken for someone described as a “hard as nails” negotiator. Film-maker Peter Bratt also sensitively interviews some of her 11 children, who talk with pride and pain about the sacrifices they made as kids while their mother was on the other side of the country persuading 17 million people to boycott grapes (“She really didn’t belong to us,” says one son).

‘COCO’ PROVES LATINOS ARE BEST AT TELLING THEIR OWN STORIES / RUBEN NAVARRETTE JR. / SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
Hey, Hollywood, it’s time you asked: What can brown do for you? Scratch that. It’s long past time. The U.S. film industry is supposed to be the imagination capital of the world. Yet, for decades, producers, directors and studio executives — most of them liberal — couldn’t imagine that the secret to successful Latino projects was to do something that liberals hate to do: surrender control to Latinos. Those on the creative left think they are the smartest, best and most enlightened people on Earth, and you want them to hand over the power of making films to people they apparently see as inferiors who are better suited to making beds, lunch or lawns look nice? You must be loco.

BÉBÉS VS IMMIGRANTS / SYLVAIN LÉVESQUE / JOURNAL DE QUEBEC
Pour la première fois en 50 ans, ce ne sera pas la question nationale qui occupera toute l’attention de la prochaine élection. Le PQ ayant mis de côté la menace d’un référendum avant 2022, le PLQ ne pourra pas agiter la peur de la souveraineté pour se faire élire. Je vous pose la question, et soyez honnête en y répondant. Qu’est-ce qui soulève les passions depuis quelques années aux Québec? L’économie? La santé? L’éducation? Non, c’est la question identitaire. Un climat créé par les libéraux. Depuis 15 ans, le laisser-aller du PLQ sur le «vivre-ensemble» a créé ce climat. La commission Bouchard-Taylor n’a abouti à rien, les accommodements déraisonnables ont continué à se multiplier. L’actuel gouvernement dirigé par Philippe Couillard pousse de plus en plus le bouchon du multiculturalisme en proposant: Sans oublier l’attitude générale du premier ministre envers ses adversaires qui tente d’accoler l’étiquette de l'intolérance (lire ici raciste) à tous ceux qui voudraient remettre en question la méthode libérale.

IMMIGRANTS CIBLÉS PAR UNE VASTE FRAUDE / FRÉDÉRIQUE GIGUÈRE / JOURNAL DE MONTREAL
La Sûreté du Québec a mis au jour un vaste stratagème frauduleux dans des agences de placement qui exploitaient des immigrants vulnérables, en plus de priver le gouvernement de sommes importantes. Une centaine de policiers ont mené, tôt hier matin, des perquisitions dans une douzaine de firmes de recrutement de personnel et de résidences privées dans la région de Montréal, a appris Le Journal. En plus d’interpeller une dizaine de personnes, les enquêteurs ont amassé des éléments de preuve sur cette fraude — la plus importante du genre dans l’histoire du Québec, croit la Sûreté du Québec (SQ) — qui perdurait depuis plus d’une décennie.

HELSINKI CITY COUNCIL MOVES TO EXPAND UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS’ RIGHTS / ALEKSI TEIVAINEN / HELSINKI TIMES
The Helsinki City Council voted 45–39 in favour of a proposal to expand the rights of undocumented immigrants to health and medical care services after a heated debate that dragged on well into the wee hours of Thursday. Undocumented immigrants will thereby be entitled not only to emergency care services but also to medication, vaccination, dental care, medical monitoring and treatment for chronic diseases. The City Council also confirmed that undocumented immigrants will remain entitled to crisis and emergency accommodation, legal counselling and psychosocial support as per to the recommendation of Social Services and Health Care Division of Helsinki. The Finns Party, in particular, was strongly opposed to the proposal.

THESE NAIROBI RESTAURANTS SAY THEY MAKE THE MOST AUTHENTIC MEXICAN FOOD ON THE CONTINENT / QUARTZ
Rice. Beans. Tomatoes. Avocados. Corn. Marinated, grilled meat. Reading the above, most in the West would assume this is a shopping list for a Mexican-themed dinner party. Kenyans might think they’re ingredients for a supper as well—their own. Despite being an Atlantic Ocean apart, Mexico and Kenya share many of the same fundamental ingredients in their respective national cuisines. These commonalities, along with a generous market opportunity, have generated a surge in well-received Mexican restaurants in Nairobi. Two have opened in the past month, business for both is booming, and more are on the way. Fonda and Mercado have distinct aesthetics and menus, but the founders both tapped into a real interest in Nairobi, the regional capital of East Africa, for top Mexican food—you can get Japanese pub food in the city, but you can’t get well-made tacos —and the availability of fresh, relevant ingredients to make the cuisine that was in such demand.
