ONU ENFRENTA A EU POR POLÍTICA MIGRATORIA / EL UNIVERSAL
Estados Unidos debe cesar de inmediato su política de separar a las familias de inmigrantes irregulares que llegan desde la frontera con México, aseguró ayer la Oficina de Derechos Humanos de Naciones Unidas (ONU) en Ginebra, insistiendo en que no hay “nada normal en detener niños”. El presidente Donald Trump volvió a culpar a los demócratas por ese tipo de separaciones y defendió la necesidad del muro. La portavoz del Alto Comisionado de Naciones Unidas para los Derechos Humanos, Ravina Shamdasani, reprochó a EU por haber separado a cientos de niños de sus padres, luego de que éstos fueron encarcelados por entrar ilegalmente al país. Lamentó que el control fronterizo parezca tener prioridad sobre la protección y el cuidado de los niños en EU.

CONGRESISTAS DE EU BUSCAN FORZAR DEBATE SOBRE 'DREAMERS' / EXCELSIOR
Una iniciativa en la Cámara de Representantes de Estados Unidos para forzar el debate de una legislación bipartidista para proteger a los inmigrantes ‘Dreamers’ de ser deportados estaba más cerca del éxito este martes, gracias al respaldo de dos demócratas más. Republicanos moderados lanzaron un pedido el mes pasado para tratar el tema, pues dicen estar cansados de la falta de acción sobre la inmigración en el Congreso controlado por su partido.

Horas antes de su graduación en una escuela en El Paso, una adolescente cruzó la frontera entre Estados Unidos y México vestida con su toga y birrete, para celebrar el fin del ciclo escolar junto a su padre deportado desde hace años por las autoridades estadunidenses.

UNDOCUMENTED TEXANS CONTRIBUTE BILLIONS TO THE ECONOMY. WHY ARE WE CHASING THEM AWAY? / MITCHELL SCHNURMAN / DALLAS NEWS
In Texas, undocumented immigrants are an asset, and a valuable one. That may not be obvious, given that many work off the books in lower-paying jobs and have less education than immigrants who came here legally. Their contributions are often discounted, too, because some Americans can’t get past the fact that these residents have violated the law. But the undocumented are a major part of the workforce in Dallas-Fort Worth and the state, and for decades, they’ve helped create the Texas growth story. By one estimate, they held 1.2 million jobs in Texas, about 11.5 percent of the private-sector workforce in 2015. They paid over $13 billion in total taxes and generated almost $145 billion in gross product.

SESSIONS, JUSTICE DEPARTMENT TAKE LEAD AS PUBLIC FACE OF TRUMP'S IMMIGRATION POLICY / TAL KOPAN / CNN
If there's one person besides President Donald Trump who's associated with his immigration policies, it's Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Regardless of whether it's his agency's core jurisdiction. Sessions and the Justice Department have taken a lead role in announcing and defending the administration's immigration efforts on a number of fronts -- including some that only tangentially involve the department. It was the Justice Department press office that put out a "fact check" statement Tuesday responding to Oregon Democratic Sen.

SENATOR CALLS IMMIGRATION POLICY “CRUEL AND UN-AMERICAN” - WANTS ANSWERS ON DETENTION FACILITIES / GRAHAM KATES / CBS NEWS
Senator Bob Menendez says senior staff members from his office were denied the ability to review conditions at immigrant processing facilities near San Diego. Menendez, a Democrat from New Jersey, made the claim in a letter released Tuesday to Kirstjen Nielsen, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. Menendez said the staffers were planning a visit to the San Diego-Tijuana border on Saturday and requested access to the sites nine days in advance. Menendez wrote that the staff were told nine days was not enough lead time to prepare for such a visit.

HALEY HITS UN HUMAN RIGHTS OFFICE OVER CONDEMNATION OF US IMMIGRATION POLICY / JENNIFER HANSLER / CNN
US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley rebuked the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights for "hypocrisy" in its call for an end to a Trump administration policy that could lead to the separation of families detained on the US southern border. "Once again, the United Nations shows its hypocrisy by calling out the United States while it ignores the reprehensible human rights records of several members of its own Human Rights Council," Haley said in a statement Tuesday.

TRUMP’S CRACKDOWN ON MIGRANT FAMILIES PLUNGES WASHINGTON DEEPER INTO IMMIGRATION FIGHT / BY SEUNG MIN KIM AND MIKE DEBONIS / THE WASHINGTON POST
The Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” crackdown on migrant families is inflaming tensions over immigration as some Republicans express unease with a practice that President Trump has misleadingly tried to pin on Democrats. The ongoing controversy over separating families came to a head over the weekend when a U.S. senator tried to gain access to a government facility in Brownsville, Tex., that holds migrant children but was barred from entering.

DOES THE U.S. KEEP IMMIGRANT CHILDREN IN CAGES? / SALVADOR RIZZO / THE WASHINGTON POST
“When I was at the center at McAllen Border Station, this is the processing center, earlier and I was admitted there and I did see the people, hundreds of children locked up in cages there at that facility. … They have big cages made out of fencing and then wire and nets stretched across the top of them so people can’t climb out of them. … “Every time I probed yesterday on the circumstances, the response was just basically a generic, ‘This is what’s required for security, this is what’s required for control.’

DACA FIX WILL SPUR NEW WAVE OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, ICE CHIEF SAYS / STEPHEN DINAN / THE WASHINGTON TIMES
Passing a “clean” Dream Act to legalize “Dreamers” will spur a new wave of illegal immigration and create a new population that will need an amnesty 10 or 20 years in the future, the government’s chief deportation official said Tuesday. Thomas D. Homan, who has been acting chief at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement since the beginning of the Trump administration, said even the talk of a renewed immigration debate on Capitol Hill will entice people to make the perilous journey to try to jump the border, saying that during his nearly 35 years in immigration enforcement, he has seen it happen “every time you talk about some sort of benefit” such as legal status for immigrants who crossed the border illegally.

‘UTTER CHAOS’: ICE ARRESTS 114 WORKERS IN IMMIGRATION RAID AT OHIO GARDENING COMPANY / SAMANTHA SCHMIDT / THE WASHINGTON POST
A swarm of immigration agents arrested more than 100 workers at an Ohio gardening and landscaping company Tuesday morning, one of the largest of several recent workplace raids carried out as part of the Trump administration’s crackdown on immigration enforcement. About 200 federal officers blitzed two locations of Corso’s Flower and Garden Center — one in Sandusky, on the shoreline of Lake Erie, and another in nearby Castalia, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement told the Associated Press. Agents surrounded the perimeter of the Castalia location, blocking off nearby streets as helicopters flew overhead, AP and local television stations reported.

EYE ON AMERICA: FEDS ENLIST LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT IN ICE'S IMMIGRATION CRACKDOWN / DAVID BEGNAUD / CBS NEWS
Six counties in Georgia have joined a federal program known as 287(g) that deputizes local law enforcement to effectively act as U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents. CBS News went to the Gwinnett County Jail to see how the program is working. "Under the Trump administration, right now we're going by all law, immigration laws," one deputy said. "So you come in for jaywalking, we find out that you're illegal, we hand you over to ICE. We work for ICE. We do not deport anybody." Just north of Atlanta, Gwinnett County accounted for 20 percent of all 287(g) encounters last year, by far the most nationally.

CAN EDUCATORS CALL ICE ON STUDENTS? BETSY DEVOS FINALLY ANSWERS / MORIAH BALINGIT / THE WASHINGTON POST
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on Tuesday walked back controversial remarks she made to Congress two weeks ago, clarifying in a Senate hearing that she does not think teachers and principals can report students to immigration authorities. DeVos told the House Committee on Education and the Workforce in late May that schools and local communities can decide whether to alert Immigration and Customs Enforcement about students who might be undocumented. Her remarks were condemned by civil rights groups, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and more than 100 congressional Democrats, who said educators who call the immigration agency on students would be violating the law. They cautioned that her assertion could confuse educators and ratchet up fear in immigrant communities.

US GOVERNMENT TO USE FACIAL RECOGNITION TECHNOLOGY AT MEXICO BORDER CROSSING/SAM LEVIN/THE GUARDIAN
New camera system would record people inside vehicles as they enter and leave US, raising civil liberties concerns. The US government is deploying a new facial recognition system at the southern border that would record images of people inside vehicles entering and leaving the country. The pilot program, scheduled to begin in August, will build on secretive tests conducted in Arizona and Texas during which authorities collected a “massive amount of data”, including images captured “as people were leaving work, picking up children from school, and carrying out other daily routines”, according to government records.

MEXICAN CONSULATE, BOISE POLICE TO HOST COMMUNITY SOCCER GAME / NICOLE FOY / IDAHO PRESS
The Mexican Consulate in Boise and the Boise Police Department are hosting a community soccer tournament on Saturday. During the last three years, the annual event has focused on connecting the Treasure Valley’s Hispanic community to domestic violence resources. This year, the game will highlight and encourage partnerships between the Boise Police Department and the local Hispanic community. “The most effective cultural awareness training is to get officers from our department to participate in the events like this,” said Ed Moreno, the Hispanic community liaison for Boise Police Department.

TRUMP SEEKS SEPARATE TALKS WITH CANADA AND MEXICO OVER NAFTA / PAUL WISEMAN AND DARLENE SUPERVILLE / THE DENVER POST
President Donald Trump couldn’t get what he wanted from months of three-way trade talks with Canada and Mexico. So now his administration wants to pursue separate negotiations with the two U.S. neighbors to try to overhaul the 24-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement, which Trump has condemned as a job-killing disaster. Trump’s top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, went on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday to convey the president’s preference for dealing separately with Canada and Mexico. Kudlow said Trump doesn’t plan to abandon NAFTA — something the president has threatened since taking office — but “is just going to try a different approach.”

A BRUSH WITH THE LAW CAN AFFECT YOUR ELECTRONIC TRAVEL AUTHORIZATION FOR CANADA/ STEPHEN SHERMAN/CIC NEWS
Prior to the introduction of Canada’s electronic travel authorization, almost anyone from a visa-exempt country could hop on a plane, show their passport or travel documents upon arrival, and be legally admitted to Canada. This all changed on March 15, 2016, when the electronic travel authorization, or eTA, became mandatory for citizens of temporary resident visa-exempt countries(aside from the U.S) traveling to Canada by air. The eTA application is usually a smooth process for anyone without any blemishes on their record: the application is submitted online, the application fee is only 7$ CAD, and the eTA is typically granted within a matter of minutes. It’s a very different story, however, if you have a criminal record.

LA BATALLA POR LA POLÍTICA MIGRATORIA SE RECRUDECE EN LA UNIÓN EUROPEA / EL PAIS
Europa se polariza ante la migración. Los ministros del Interior de la UE mantuvieron este martes una dura discusión sobre el enigma no resuelto que los enfrenta desde 2015: cómo gestionar los flujos de llegadas al club comunitario. Con la subida de tono marcada el domingo por el nuevo ministro italiano, Matteo Salvini —“Italia no puede ser el campo de refugiados de la UE”, proclamó—, algunos países expresaron posturas extremas sobre la protección de fronteras y la acogida de asilados.

L’EUROPE ET LES MIGRANTS: UNE CATASTROPHE POLITIQUE ANNONCÉE / LE MONDE
Autant l’ampleur de la crise migratoire à laquelle est confrontée l’Europe depuis 2014 était imprévue, autant le blocage politique qu’elle provoque au sommet de l’Union européenne était annoncé. La réunion des ministres de l’intérieur des Vingt-Huit, mardi 5 juin, à Luxembourg, a confirmé ce que tout le monde redoutait : l’Europe reste incapable de trouver une issue commune à ce sujet majeur, qui n’en finit plus de ravager le paysage politique de nos démocraties.

SUR L’IMMIGRATION, LE GRAND DÉSACCORD ENTRE LES EUROPÉENS S’APPROFONDIT / LE MONDE
Matteo Salvini, le nouveau ministre italien de l’intérieur et dirigeant du parti d’extrême droite la Ligue, n’avait pas fait le déplacement au Luxembourg, mardi 5 juin, pour rencontrer ses homologues européens réunis en conseil. L’homme, qui refuse que l’Italie soit, ainsi qu’il l’a déclaré, « le camp de réfugiés de l’Europe » et qui entend renvoyer 500 000 sans-papiers, n’aura donc pas pu taper du poing sur la table pour inciter notamment certains responsables d’Europe centrale ou orientale – qui partagent certaines de ses convictions, mais pas celle-là – de soulager son pays, en première ligne pour l’accueil des migrants.

EL OTRO HÉROE SIN PAPELES QUE FRANCIA HABÍA OLVIDADO / EL PAIS
Ha sido recibido en el Elíseo, invitado por el mismísimo presidente, Emmanuel Macron, que ordenó que aceleraran su proceso de regularización y le prometió la nacionalidad francesa. (…)O puede que pensara en Aymen Latrous, el tunecino también joven, también inmigrante irregular y también héroe por salvar a dos niños de un incendio que, sin embargo, no había tenido tanta suerte como él y corría peligro de ser expulsado de la Francia que tanto aplaude la gesta de Gassama. Hasta que la maquinaria mediática también se fijó en él.

MUERTE DE UNA REFUGIADA DE DOS AÑOS / EL PAIS
Es jueves 17 de mayo, y por primera vez en tres días, la temperatura no pasa de 20 grados en Mons. Es común que la primavera belga combine mañanas y noches de memoria invernal, con tardes de promesa veraniega. En medio de la madrugada, Mawda Shawri viaja en el asiento delantero de una furgoneta en brazos de su madre. Sentados cerca, su padre y su hermano mayor. Han salido del campo de refugiados de Grand-Synthe, en Dunkerque (Francia), hace más de una hora. El espacio no sobra. Dentro se apilan 26 adultos y 4 niños, casi todos inmigrantes y refugiados deseosos de llegar a Reino Unido.
