MÉXICO PROTESTA EN EU POR INSULTO DE TRUMP A MIGRANTES / ANABEL CLEMENTE / EL FINANCIERO
La Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores presentó una nota diplomática de protesta al gobierno de Estados Unidos por el calificativo de “animales” que el presidente de ese país, Donald Trump, dijo a los migrantes. De acuerdo con la cancillería, la nota fue entregada por conducto de la Embajada de México en Washington. “Son absolutamente inaceptables, ya que generan un clima adverso para los mexicanos que se encuentran en la Unión Americana, independientemente de su situación migratoria”, establece el documento sobre las declaraciones del mandatario.

NO LLAMÉ A TODOS LOS MIGRANTES ANIMALES, DICE TRUMP; CULPA A "FAKE NEWS" / EL UNIVERSAL
El presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, rechazó esta mañana haber llamado “animales” a todos los inmigrantes, y culpó a los medios de comunicación de tergiversar sus declaraciones y difundir “fake news”. “Los medios de fake news (noticias falsas) dijeron que llamé ‘animales’ a los inmigrantes, o inmigrantes indocumentados. ¡No es cierto! Se vieron obligados a retirar, a regañadientes, sus historias. Yo me referí a los miembros de la pandilla MS 13 como ‘animales’, una gran diferencia, y es tan cierto. ¡Las Fake News lo entendieron mal a propósito, como siempre!”, tuiteó Trump.

BUSCA RYAN CALMAR REBELIÓN REPUBLICANA A FAVOR DE REFORMA MIGRATORIA / 20 MINUTOS
El presidente de la Cámara de Representantes de Estados Unidos, Paul Ryan, dijo hoy que busca convencer a los republicanos que quieren forzar un voto sobre DACA que mejor se enfoquen en una legislación que pueda ser promulgada por el mandatario Donald Trump. AL menos 20 republicanos de la Cámara de Representantes firmaron una “petición de desahogo” que obligaría a Ryan a someter al pleno una o varias iniciativas migratorias una vez que se sumen cinco republicanos más, en compañía de todos los demócratas.

REABRE WASHINGTON CONVERSACIONES SOBRE INMIGRACIÓN / DIARIO DE JUÁREZ
El presidente Donald Trump y los líderes republicanos de la Cámara de Representantes reabrieron las negociaciones sobre el destino de los jóvenes inmigrantes indocumentados y la seguridad fronteriza, resucitando el tema políticamente explosivo de la inmigración que ha obstaculizado al Partido Republicano. Tras una revuelta interna que duró varios días, el Partido Republicano se modera, temeroso de la inacción continua antes de las elecciones de mitad de período, por lo que empleó una maniobra legislativa raramente utilizada para obligar al presidente de los diputados –Paul Ryan, republicano de Wisconsin– y a la Casa Blanca a volver a la mesa de negociaciones.

CRECE CIFRA DE MIGRANTES SIN ANTECEDENTES PRESOS / EL UNIVERSAL
La proporción de arrestos en Estados Unidos a inmigrantes indocumentados que no han sido condenados por ningún delito se incrementó en la primera mitad del año fiscal 2018 bajo el gobierno de Donald Trump, según datos ofrecidos hoy por el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS, en inglés). En los primeros seis meses del año fiscal 2018, que será el primero completo bajo el mando de Trump, se incrementó considerablemente la proporción de arrestos a indocumentados sin antecedentes penales respecto al total de detenciones a este colectivo. Según los datos del Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (ICE) publicados ayer, el número de personas arrestadas en esta categoría pasó de 13 mil 243 (21.15% del total) en ese periodo de 2017, a los 26 mil 547 (33.5%) en la primera mitad del presente año fiscal, que abarca desde octubre hasta marzo.

MIGRANTES QUE TESTIFIQUEN EN CORTES ESTARÁN PROTEGIDOS; BROWN FIRMA LA SB785 / CONEXIÓN MIGRANTE
Los inmigrantes indocumentados que acudan a las cortes ya están protegidos de que se revele su estatus migratorio, pues el gobernador de California, Jerry Brown, firmó este día el proyecto de ley SB785. La nueva ley establece que las víctimas, los acusados y los testigos no están obligados a revelar su estatus migratorio en una corte, a menos que el magistrado estime que la información es relevante al caso.

LO LLAMAN 'FRIJOLERO' EN UN STARBUCKS / EL DIARIO DE JUÁREZ
A tan sólo dos semanas de que Starbucks cierre miles de tiendas en Estados Unidos para instruir a sus trabajadores sobre cómo prevenir la discriminación, un nuevo capítulo de racismo ocurrió en una de sus tiendas. Un barista en una tienda en La Cañada Flintridge, California, entregó a su cliente la orden y en el recibo escribió un insulto racial. Pedro, quien pidió no ser identificado por su apellido, pidió dos cafés y recibió su orden con la palabra ‘beaner’ (‘frijolero’) en ambas tazas en lugar de su nombre, según contó el usuario a NBC4, Telemundo 52.

CALIFORNIA GOV. JERRY BROWN SIGNS ANOTHER LAW TO PROTECT IMMIGRANTS / JAZMINE ULLOA / LOS ANGELES TIMES
One day after President Trump and a group of like-minded Californians blasted the state’s immigration laws, Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday signed another one: a law that prevents lawyers from revealing the immigration status of crime victims and witnesses in open court unless a judge rules the information relevant to the case. Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) introduced the proposal after the state’s top judge voiced concerns over reports of immigration agents following immigrants in California courthouses. The efforts were seen as part of Trump’s call for mass deportations and increased immigration enforcement.

GOP MODERATES PUSH IMMIGRATION DEBATE AS WHITE HOUSE AND RYAN REOPEN TALKS / MIKE DEBONIS AND SEUNG MIN KIM / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
President Donald Trump and House Republican leaders have reopened negotiations over the fate of young undocumented immigrants and border security, resurrecting the politically explosive issue of immigration that has stymied the GOP. In a days-long uprising, GOP moderates fearful of continued inaction ahead of the midterm elections employed a rarely used legislative maneuver to force Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and White House officials back to the negotiating table.

REPUBLICAN SAYS LEADERS DISCUSS VOTES ON 2 IMMIGRATION BILLS / ALAN FRAM / MIAMI HERALD
Republican leaders have discussed scheduling House votes on two immigration bills, two GOP lawmakers said Thursday, a move they hope would resolve an internal battle over an issue that threatens to worsen party divisions as the election season heats up. Under the still-evolving idea, one bill would resemble legislation strongly backed by conservatives that would curb legal immigration and open the door to building President Donald Trump's prized wall with Mexico. Conservatives have been demanding a vote on that measure, which GOP leaders say would be defeated. The second bill would be more narrowly aimed at providing young "Dreamer" immigrants a chance to stay in the U.S. permanently, a goal of many moderate Republicans as well as Democrats. It would also contain provisions strengthening border security in an effort to win GOP votes, one of the lawmakers said.

WHITE HOUSE, HOUSE GOP LEADERS REOPEN TALKS ON IMMIGRATION / MIKE DEBONIS AND SEUNG MIN KIM / THE WASHINGTON POST
President Trump and House Republican leaders have reopened negotiations over the fate of young undocumented immigrants and border security, resurrecting the politically explosive issue of immigration that has stymied the GOP. In a days-long uprising, GOP moderates fearful of continued inaction ahead of the midterm elections employed a rarely used legislative maneuver to force Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) and White House officials back to the negotiating table. The overall efforts on Thursday have focused on a path to permanent residency for the hundreds of thousands of “dreamers” left in limbo after Trump canceled the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program last year. Crucial to the discussions are ways to construct the U.S.-Mexico border wall that Trump promised repeatedly in the 2016 campaign.

FARM BILL’S FUTURE UNCERTAIN AFTER HOUSE CONSERVATIVES REJECT IMMIGRATION DEAL / JOSHUA JAMERSON, JESSE NEWMAN AND HEATHER HADDON / THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
A group of hard-line conservatives rejected an immigration deal that was intended to unlock Republican votes needed to pass a five-year, $867 billion farm bill, leaving the measure up in the air on the eve of a scheduled House vote. The House Freedom Caucus, a group of roughly three-dozen conservatives who have made immigration policy one of their signature issues, turned back a proposal put forth by House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R., La.). The conservatives represent crucial bloc of votes for the farm bill,...

EVEN AS TRUMP TIGHTENS IMMIGRATION, THE U.S. LABOR SHORTAGE IS BECOMING A CRISIS / ALFREDO CORCHADO / DALLAS NEWS-THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS
Roberto Rodriguez works at a meat-packing company in Nebraska's capital. For years, most of his colleagues were fellow Mexicans and Central Americans. These days, the men standing by his side increasingly are Middle Easterners. "We communicate through hand signals," said Rodriguez, who came here from his native state of Zacatecas. "Working with Arabs is something I never thought I'd be doing. I thought the pipeline of Mexicans was forever." Several times a day, his Muslim colleagues pause to pray. He finds the breaks a bit odd, even annoying, but he's willing to cut his co-workers some slack. "I think we Mexicans pray all the time too, especially when you work in the meat industry," he said as he made the sign of the cross. "I try to be as welcoming as possible because I think we understand rejection."

WIDER NET CAST IN ILLEGAL-IMMIGRATION CASES / LAURA MECKLER / THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
The Trump administration said Thursday that immigration judges may no longer administratively close cases, a way of letting someone avoid deportation, and released data showing that it is arresting far more illegal immigrants without criminal convictions than was true in the Obama administration. Together, the announcements show how the administration is rolling back Obama-era rules and policies that allowed for discretion in who is targeted for removal from the U.S.

NEW 'ZERO TOLERANCE' IMMIGRATION CRACKDOWN FILLS BORDER COURTS / MOLLY HENNESSY-FISKE / LOS ANGELES TIMES
The crowded courtroom reeked of stale sweat, and 92 immigrants filled all five benches, leaving standing room only for visitors and court personnel. "It's packed in there," said one of a dozen guards and deputy marshals stationed at the courtroom this week. "This is what it's going to be like from now on — no more 'catch and release.' " That's how opponents of illegal immigration, including President Trump, have long condemned the policy of releasing migrants with pending court cases. But under a policy the Trump administration announced last week, migrants caught crossing the border illegally are charged in federal criminal court, including those without criminal records and parents traveling with small children. The result: scores of cases flooding the federal courts, especially here in southern Texas, the leading pathway for illegal immigration into the U.S.

TRUMP’S CLAIM THAT U.S. IS ONLY COUNTRY WITH ‘THOUSANDS’ OF IMMIGRATION JUDGES / BY SALVADOR RIZZO / THE WASHINGTON POST
Trump often complains about “catch and release,” the practice of releasing children and people seeking asylum or refugee status into the United States while they await immigration hearings. But these comments include a new twist. Trump says alternately that the United States has “thousands of judges” hearing immigration cases or is trying to hire thousands. The president also says “no other country in the world does it.” Trump is not suggesting that U.S. immigration laws should be commended for giving safe harbor to the huddled masses, but rather that it’s “ridiculous” to offer refugees and children this recourse, since no other country does so.

IN TRUMP ERA, LAPD STRENGTHENS BONDS WITH IMMIGRANTS HERE ILLEGALLY / BRITTNY MEJIA, ANDREA CASTILLO AND KATE MATHER / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Al Labrada recalls the terror he felt as a young boy each time he rode from Los Angeles to San Diego on a Greyhound bus and passed through an immigration checkpoint. Born in Mexico City, he had crossed the border illegally when he was 5 while pretending to be asleep in the back seat of a Ford station wagon. His experience, the Los Angeles police captain says, serves as a way for him to connect with residents who express fear about being caught up in immigration sweeps. It's a tale that the 47-year-old, who became an American citizen while serving in the Marine Corps, has shared in one-on-one conversations and at public gatherings.

A CLOSER LOOK AT THE THREE FINALISTS FOR LAPD CHIEF / CINDY CHANG AND JAMES QUEALLY / LOS ANGELES TIMES
As young cops, the three finalists for chief of the Los Angeles Police Department were taught a harsh style of policing that emphasized crackdowns and arrests. They have since disavowed that strategy, rising through the ranks of a department that has recast itself as a kinder, gentler LAPD. All three use similar catchphrases: building ties with residents, investing in youth sports and academic programs, assuring immigrants that the LAPD wants to help them, not deport them. But for the official making the selection, Mayor Eric Garcetti, who is considering a run for president, each of the veteran cops brings political benefits. Robert Arcos would be the first Latino police chief of a city that is nearly 50% Latino. Bill Scott, who left the LAPD to lead the troubled San Francisco Police Department, is African American and a familiar face in South Los Angeles.

CIVIL RIGHTS GROUP DEMANDS MIAMI-DADE ALLOW IMMIGRANT TEENS TO ENROLL IN HIGH SCHOOL / BRENDA MEDINA, KYRA GURNEY AND LENA JACKSON / MIAMI HERALD
A national civil rights advocacy group sent a demand letter to the Miami-Dade school district on Thursday urging administrators to address "the systemic denial of enrollment" to thousands of immigrant teens with limited English skills. The Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center sent the letter on behalf of a 16-year-old immigrant teen from Guatemala who was allegedly denied enrollment at South Dade Senior High and "pushed into adult education." In the letter, addressed to Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, the SPLC asked for the teen's immediate enrollment in high school as well as a meeting to address what the group described as a "pervasive practice" of denying immigrant teens the right to enroll in Miami-Dade schools and "forcing" them into adult education programs. The SPLC said the practice segregates the teens from their English-speaking peers and prevents them from earning a high school diploma.

WE CAN STOP TRUMPISM FROM COMING TO CANADA/ RINALDO WALCOTT & NAOMI KLEIN/ TORONTO STAR
So far, Doug Ford’s campaign to become premier of Ontario is a festival of fakeness. He communicates primarily through fake news reports on “Ford Nation Live.” He was cheered on by fake supporters (actually paid actors) at the first leaders’ debate. And then there’s Ford’s phony populism: this is a man who markets himself as the saviour of “the little guy” while pushing policies that would deliver a Trump-style bonanza for billionaires. But there is one thing about Doug Ford that is excruciatingly real: the devastating social and economic consequences that would bear down on this province should he succeed in bringing Trumpism to Canada.

OTTAWA TO HIRE MORE STUDENTS TO WORK AT AIRPORTS AS AGENTS REASSIGNED TO MIGRANT SURGE/MICHELLE ZILIO & ROBERT FIFE / THE GLOBE AND MAIL
The federal government will hire a record number of students to work at Canadian airports this summer as border and customs agents are temporarily shifted to Quebec to handle an influx in asylum seekers from the United States. In a statement Thursday, a spokesperson for Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale's office said Toronto’s Pearson International Airport will see a 26-per-cent increase in summer student staff from last year to help manage the busy travel season. The staffing announcement comes one day after The Globe and Mail reported border agents are being pulled from the Greater Toronto Area to handle a “significant” increase in refugee claimants crossing from the United States into St-Bernard de Lacolle,

L’EDUCATION ET L’IMMIGRATION PEUVENT AIDER LA CROISSANCE, DIT LA BANQUE DU CANADA / LE DEVOIR
L’éducation, l’immigration et la libéralisation du commerce ont déjà soutenu les perspectives de croissance de l’économie canadienne et pourraient être appelées à le faire de nouveau, a fait valoir mercredi un dirigeant de la Banque du Canada. Dans un discours prononcé à Ottawa, le sous-gouverneur de la banque centrale, Lawrence Schembri, a affirmé que le potentiel de production du pays permet d’évaluer ce que l’économie peut réaliser de façon durable à long terme. Le Canada, comme la plupart des économies avancées, a vu une baisse tendancielle de la croissance de sa production potentielle ces dernières décennies — essentiellement à cause du vieillissement de la population, a expliqué le sous-gouverneur.

ÁRABES EN ESPAÑA: NI TODOS MACHISTAS, NI ELLAS SUMISAS. Y TAMPOCO TERRORISTAS / SARA ROSATI / EL PAIS
La noche del sábado fue una de esas en las que Fátima Benamar se fue a dormir con un doble sentimiento. Un terrorista de 21 años de nacido en Chechenia asesinó a cuchilladas a una persona en París al grito de “Allah akbar” (Alá es grande). “Tras un ataque terrorista, siento que algo horrible ha sucedido, pienso en las familias de las víctimas, pero a la vez tengo pánico de ir a trabajar al día siguiente”, cuenta esta traductora saharaui que lleva 27 años viviendo en España. Ese miedo del que habla, como árabe y musulmana, es el de que la asocien con los terroristas. “Me dicen: ‘Mira lo que hacen tus paisanos”. Sin embargo, el US National Counterterrorism Center indica que entre 2001 y 2015, el 75% de las muertes por terrorismo yihadista se produjeron en países de mayoría musulmana.

ENTRE L’ITALIE ET LA FRANCE, LA FRONTIÈRE DE TOUS LES DANGERS / LE MONDE
Ce sont des frontières qu’on imagine paisibles depuis toujours. Pourtant la ligne de partage entre la France et l’Italie a été âprement disputée pendant des siècles. En Europe occidentale, c’est l’une des dernières à avoir été dessinées : elle n’a pris sa forme actuelle qu’en 1947, par le rattachement à la France des communes de Tende et La Brigue (Alpes-Maritimes), ainsi que la partie sud de la vallée de la Roya.

REFUGEE PATIENTS WERE NOT FORCIBLY RETURNED TO NAURU FROM TAIWAN / THE GUARDIAN
The report regarding the transfer of two refugee patients from Taiwan to Nauru by Australian officials (Iranian refugee and son returned to Nauru against medical advice, 14 May) requires further clarification to avoid misunderstanding. The article implies the patients were forcibly returned to Nauru and this was opposed by Taiwanese medical personnel. In consideration of Taiwan’s high-quality medical facilities and longstanding medical cooperation with Nauru, Australia and Taiwan signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in 2017, in which refugees and asylum seekers staying in Nauru who require urgent medical treatment can be transferred to Taiwan, with valid medical visas and confirmation from medical personnel for the requirement of such treatment.
