CÓNSUL MEXICANO DESCARTA QUE HAYA PASADO LO PEOR PARA MIGRANTES EN EU / UNIRADIO
Los inmigrantes deben estar preparados y asesorados ante eventuales operativos de migración, afirmó el cónsul de México en Los Ángeles, Carlos García de Alba, quien descartó que se pueda pensar que ya pasó lo peor. “He aprendido en mis actividades diplomáticas que sería ingenuo pensar que lo difícil ya pasó (...) Estaríamos equivocados y, al contrario, debemos estar listos para enfrentar cualquier tipo de operativo”, indicó García de Alba, quien este jueves presentó un informe de actividades de su legación.

EU OFRECE NACIONALIZAR A 1.8 MILLONES DE "DREAMERS" / VICTOR SANCHO / EL UNIVERSAL
La propuesta migratoria del presidente Donald Trump ya está sobre la mesa. A pesar de que el mandatario prometió hace unas semanas que votaría “cualquier propuesta” que le llegara —previo consenso— desde el Congreso, la Casa Blanca presentó ayer las cláusulas que impone para el complicado acuerdo migratorio. Según el documento, la administración Trump está dispuesta a ofrecer un camino hacia la residencia legal permanente en 10 y 12 años a 1.8 millones de jóvenes indocumentados, más del doble de los actuales dreamers y que incluye aquellos que por algún motivo no pudieron acogerse al programa de Acción Diferida para los llegados en la Infancia (DACA, por sus siglas en inglés).

REPUBLICANOS ACEPTARÍAN OTORGAR CIUDADANÍA A 'DREAMERS', DICE TRUMP / EL FINANCIERO
El presidente estadounidense, Donald Trump, dijo que creía que algunos legisladores republicanos que han tomado posturas duras sobre la inmigración finalmente acordarían ofrecer la ciudadanía a los inmigrantes jóvenes que llegaron a Estados Unidos ilegalmente cuando eran niños. En una entrevista transmitida este viernes por el canal CNBC, Trump dijo que los senadores republicanos Tom Cotton, John Cornyn y David Perdue, y el legislador Bob Goodlatte, tendrían la voluntad de cambiar parte de sus posturas sobre la inmigración.

DACAS EN LA DISPUTA POR EL FUTURO DE ESTADOS UNIDOS / RAFAEL FERNANDEZ DE CASTRO / EL FINANCIERO
El gobierno federal de Estados Unidos se cerró y se abrió durante el último fin de semana por una controversia central para el futuro de nuestro vecino. No era el nivel de deuda nacional o el presupuesto. La polémica tuvo que ver con un grupo de cerca de 700 mil inmigrantes, conocidos como DACAs. Es decir, niños que llegaron de las manos de sus padres y que se acogieron a la medida de alivio de Barack Obama, Acción Diferida (DACA por sus siglas en inglés). Los DACAs, en su mayoría mexicanos, se han convertido en un símbolo muy importante en la disputa por el futuro de Estados Unidos. A su favor están los que pretenden que ese país siga siendo una nación de inmigrantes, abierta y tolerante.

SI SE ACABA EL TLCAN, ESTOS SECTORES MEXICANOS SERÍAN LOS MÁS AFECTADOS / EL FINANCIERO
Funcionarios están reunidos esta semana en Montreal en una ronda crucial para renegociar el Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN), cuyo colapso podría desencadenar una costosa batalla arancelaria entre México y Estados Unidos. Si los dos vecinos se ven obligados a retomar los aranceles de "nación más favorecida" según las reglas de la Organización Mundial del Comercio (OMC), los expertos dicen que México probablemente enfrentará barreras más bajas que Estados Unidos, pero algunos sectores encararán fuertes penalidades.

EN 16 AÑOS, SEPULTAN A 500 MIGRANTES EN UNA FOSA EN CALIFORNIA / JUAN MIGUEL HERNÁNDEZ / EL OCCIDENTAL
Más de 500 migrantes que murieron en su intento de cruzar a los Estados Unidos, se encuentran enterrados y sin identificar en una fosa ubicada en Holtville, ciudad ubicada en el Condado del Valle Imperial. En el pequeño pueblo de 5 mil habitantes, hace 16 años un grupo de activistas rentó un terreno para sepultar a 30 migrantes fallecidos, de los cuales no había rastro de algún familiar. Sin embargo la cifra fue aumentado al pasar de los años, hasta llegar a los 500 qué hay en actualidad. Según platica Enrique Morones Careaga, fundador y director de Ángeles de la Frontera, mucha de la gente que descansa en la fosa, son aquellos que murieron en el Valle Imperial, y que ningún familiar reclamó su cuerpo, por lo que fueron enterrados por autoridades del Valle Imperial.

HIDALGUENSES REGRESAN A MORIR A SU PROPIA TIERRA / JOSÉ LUIS RICO / EL SOL DE HIDALGO
La Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores (SRE), junto con la Secretaría de Desarrollo Social (Sedeso) del gobierno del estado, coordina acciones para financiar el regreso de paisanos que radican en Estados Unidos de Norteamérica y que cursan enfermedades en fase terminal. Además, apoyan el traslado de restos de hidalguenses que fallecieron en el país del norte. De ese modo, se cumplen últimas voluntades a la manera de la canción “México Lindo y Querido”, porque cuando mueren lejos de aquí los traen a sus lugares de origen, donde son sepultados.

HOW TO FIGHT TRUMP’S PLAN TO WHITEN OUR IMMIGRATION SYSTEM / JENNIFER RUBIN / THE WASHINGTON POST
President Trump is proposing a path to citizenship for an estimated 1.8 million young undocumented immigrants in exchange for hard-line steps to increase border security and curb legal immigration, a trade-off swiftly opposed by key Democrats. Trump’s support for “dreamers” who have been in the country illegally since they were children represents a significant concession to Democrats and was intended as a compromise to help break the impasse over immigration in Congress, White House aides said Thursday. The plan offers a citizenship path to more than twice as many dreamers as were enrolled in a deferred action program Trump terminated in September, a move that is likely to engender fierce blowback among some conservatives, especially in the House.

TRUMP DRAGS GOP TO WAR ON LEGAL IMMIGRATION / BENJY SARLIN / NBC NEWS
After years of high-profile debates over a border wall and a path to citizenship, the biggest obstacle to a bipartisan deal on DACA is quickly becoming legal immigration, an issue where President Donald Trump has presided over a monumental shift in the GOP's approach. Both sides have given ground elsewhere. A new proposal by the White House on Thursday would cede significant ground on "Dreamers," with a path to citizenship for up to 1.8 million people brought to the United States illegally as children. It also asks for $25 billion for a wall, which Democrats (at least briefly) had already suggested they would fund to a substantial degree. On legal immigration, though, the proposal puts them miles apart. It reflects a fundamental and growing ideological divide between Democrats and many Republicans who view immigration as a net good and Trump and his allies, who have depicted immigrants as an unwanted burden and threatening presence.

TRUMP'S IMMIGRATION PROPOSAL SLAMMED BY HIS BASE / CBS NEWS
Fearing betrayal on a signature campaign issue, President Trump's loyalists across the country are lashing out against his proposal to create a path to citizenship for nearly 2 million "Dreamer" immigrants. Mr. Trump's proposal includes $25 billion for border security and significant changes to legal immigration long sought by hard-liners. Several Democrats and immigration activists rejected it outright, accusing the president of holding "Dreamers" hostage to his hard-line immigration agenda. Senior White House officials cast the plan as a centrist compromise that could win support from both parties and enough votes to pass the Senate. But it comes with a long list of concessions that many Democrats, and conservative Republicans, especially in the House, may find impossible to swallow.

KRASNER CREATES IMMIGRATION COUNSEL JOB IN D.A.'S OFFICE / MICHAEL D’ONOFRIO / PHILADELPHIA TRIBUNE
The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office will place a new emphasis on defendants’ and victims’ immigration statuses in order to avoid harsh immigration consequences and deportations. Leading this approach will be Caleb Arnold, whom on Thursday District Attorney Larry Krasner appointed to the newly created position of immigration counsel. Arnold said the goals in the new position include working with foreign-national defendants – those with and without immigration statuses – to find “immigration-neutral consequences,” or consequences that will not lead to excessive immigration penalties for low-level offenders, such as minor drug convictions. Arnold said some defendants could “face the same criminal consequence but they don’t necessarily have the adverse immigration consequence that accompanies some of these charges.

'BLATANT AND BRAZEN' TRUMP ACCUSED OF BLOCKING ABORTIONS FOR UNDOCUMENTED WOMEN / ED PILKINGTON / THE GUARDIAN
The Trump administration is engaging in the most flagrant violation yet seen of the constitutional right to an abortion by preventing undocumented women held in detention centers from seeking medical treatment, constitutional lawyers have warned. On this week’s 45th anniversary of supreme court’s landmark Roe v Wade ruling, lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) have accused Trump-appointed officials of in effect holding pregnant women hostage in order to stop them reaching abortion clinics. Four cases in which women have been blocked have so far been confirmed, provoking a flurry of legal challenges, while the total number denied their constitutional rights could be much higher.

UNDOCUMENTED AND DISILLUSIONED, I DECIDED TO LEAVE AMERICA. THIS LOSS IS MUTUAL / ARIEL RODRIGUEZ / THE WASHINGTON POST
Ariel Rodriguez is a freelance journalist living in Mexico City. At 15, I arrived in the United States with a suitcase full of clothes, a picture of my golden retriever and the excitement of starting my new life. That was 10 years ago. Last month, the day after I graduated from college, I got on a nonstop flight that carried me and my new journalism degree away from the place I call home, back to a place my family and I once waved goodbye to. I am unsure I will be allowed to reenter. The decision to leave for Mexico City was difficult. My family and I made it as a group. We began discussing it after President Trump was elected — based in no small part on his negative rhetoric about undocumented people.

IN THE HUNT FOR UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS, BORDER PATROL AGENTS HASSLE CITIZENS, TOO / FABIOLA SANTIAGO / MIAMI HERALD
Joshua Dobarganes, a Miami-born and raised actor, experienced first-hand Wednesday night what it’s like to live in Florida under President Donald Trump’s draconian immigration crackdown. Returning home on a long Greyhound bus ride from Jacksonville, the 31-year-old was the first passenger to get off at the West Palm Beach stop to get some fresh air — only to find Border Patrol agents waiting in the dark, guns in holsters, and accompanied by a dog. An agent put up his palm in front of Dobarganes in a motion to stop, and asked where he was coming from, and then: “Are you an American citizen?” Feeling confused, Dobarganes offered his driver’s license between nervous chuckles, and asked if there was anything else they needed.

A lawsuit filed Thursday against a major U.S. blueberry grower and a recruiting company alleges that some 600 Mexican workers brought to a Whatcom County farm were subject to threats and intimidation that violated federal laws prohibiting human trafficking. The lawsuit comes in the aftermath of a tense summer harvest at the farm near Sumasduring which one man became and ill and died, and dozens of workers then launched a one-day protest of harsh conditions that ended with their termination and eviction from the farm. The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Seattle names as defendants California-based Munger Bros., which describes itself as the largest blueberry producer in North America, Munger’s Whatcom County subsidiary Sarbanand Farms, and CSI Visa Processing.

MEXICAN IMMIGRANT SHARES HOW SCHOOL CHOICE IMPROVED HER EDUCATION / VICTOR JOECKS / LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
Sitting in her math class at Clark High School, Daniela Lopez longed to go to a private school. There was just one seemingly insurmountable problem. Her family couldn’t afford it. Thanks to school choice, they didn’t have to. While attending public school as a freshman and sophomore, Lopez didn’t find the environment conducive to learning. “I had this math class, and there were about 45 kids in there,” she said. “Sometimes the kids would be very disruptive. Sometimes they would talk or listen to music. “I wanted to learn, but I couldn’t really do it, because there were so many kids being disrespectful. The teacher didn’t really want to pay attention to us since people wouldn’t listen, and he would give up.” Like thousands of other Clark County kids in working-class homes, Lopez assumed she was stuck.
