PAUL RYAN BUSCA EVITAR VOTO MIGRATORIO FORZADO CON ‘CONVERSACIONES’ / MUNDO HISPÁNICO
El presidente de la Cámara de Representantes, Paul Ryan, y los líderes republicanos están presionando por conversaciones abiertas dentro del caucus para encontrar una “solución permanente” a DACA, el programa de acción diferida para los hijos de inmigrantes llegados en la infancia al que la administración Trump ha estado intentando poner fin, reportó CBS News. Una vez más, Ryan expresó sus preocupaciones con la medida de los miembros conservadores de la Cámara para forzar una votación de la Cámara de Representantes sobre varios proyectos de ley de inmigración mediante el uso de una petición de descarga. Si 218 miembros firman tal petición, la Cámara tendría que votar una serie de proyectos de inmigración.

EN UN AÑO, ARRESTOS DE MIGRANTES CRECEN 160% / EL UNIVERSAL
La administración del presidente estadunidense Donald Trump detuvo a 51 mil 912 inmigrantes en su frontera suroeste en mayo pasado, un aumento de 160% en relación con el mismo mes de 2017, informó ayer la Oficina de Aduanas y Protección Fronteriza (CBP). Por tercer mes consecutivo, el número de detenciones migratorias realizadas por las autoridades estadounidenses rebasó la marca de las 50 mil personas —en abril fueron 50 mil 924 y en marzo 50 mil 296—. El Departamento de Seguridad Interna (DHS, por sus siglas en inglés) señaló en un comunicado que las cifras muestran que será necesario “un esfuerzo sostenido y un compromiso continuo de muchos meses para desmantelar a los cárteles y contrabandistas”.

Para Yolanda, Ana Laura y otras mujeres más, la gran meta de su vida es reunirse con sus hijos e hijas, pero para estas madres deportadas de Estados Unidos la perspectiva es desoladora.

EDITORIAL: A GOP SHOWDOWN OVER 'DREAMERS' / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
In the long and bitter fight over immigration reform, Americans have staked out a patch of common ground: They don’t believe young foreigners who grew up here should be kicked out, even if they came without permission. This year alone: A Quinnipiac University poll found 73 percent of voters support legislation to allow the so-called “Dreamers” to remain in the U.S. legally. An NPR poll found 65 percent in favor. An ABC News/Washington Post poll found 87 percent would let them stay “if they arrived here as a child, completed high school or military service and have not been convicted of a serious crime.” That last question closely tracks the requirements of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA program, the status of which is currently uncertain. President Barack Obama created it by executive order in 2012; President Donald Trump attempted to kill it the same way in 2017. Federal courts will decide if it lives or dies.

DESPITE TRUMP ADMIN CRACKDOWN, ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION ON BORDER INCREASED IN MAY / JULIA AINSLEY / NBC NEWS
The number of immigrants apprehended for crossing the border illegally increased in May despite the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy that prosecutes illegal immigrants and separates prosecuted parents from their children, according to numbers released Wednesday by the Department of Homeland Security. U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested around 2,000 more immigrants crossing the border between official points of entry in May compared to April, up from 38,234 to about 40,400, according U.S. Customs and Border Protection statistics. Overall, including immigrants who turned themselves in at ports of entry, more than 50,000 immigrants tried to enter the U.S. by land over the U.S.-Mexico border last month — the third straight month to surpass 50,000.

COLUMN: TRUMP'S SEPARATION OF FAMILIES AT THE BORDER MAY SOON BE STOPPED. AS IT SHOULD BE / REX HUPPKE / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
If we soon see a court order halting the separation of families at the border, know that it started here in Chicago, with a little girl who was cruelly and unjustly ripped from her mother after the two arrived in America seeking asylum. That Congolese girl, who I’ve written several columns about, is now reunited with her mother here, and she’s thriving, doing well in school while the pair await their asylum hearing. That mother and child are one of the families at the center of a class-action lawsuit the American Civil Liberties Union filed against the government to bring an end to the barbaric policy of separating children — even babies — from parents to deter other asylum seekers and immigrants from coming to America.

ASYLUM SEEKERS REPORTEDLY DENIED ENTRY AT BORDER AS TRUMP TIGHTENS 'ZERO TOLERANCE' IMMIGRATION POLICIES / DIANNE SOLIS AND ALFREDO CORCHADO / DALLAS NEWS
Immigration advocates are accusing U.S. border guards of refusing asylum-seekers entry to the U.S. at a bustling pedestrian bridge into the downtown of this city next to the Rio Grande. It isn’t the first time, nor the only port of entry. But the accusation that people are again being illegally refused the opportunity to apply for asylum comes as tensions flare over “zero tolerance” measures escalating the crackdown on legal and illegal immigration by the Trump administration. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials say they are doing the best job they can with limited space for immigrants and limited resources. Immigration advocates say the extreme immigration enforcement is inhumane, and is taking a toll on El Paso and other cities along the border.

NUMBER OF IMMIGRANTS CAUGHT AT THE BORDER ON THE RISE / CRAIG THOMAS / TUCSON NEWS
Despite mobilizing National Guard troops, and a new "zero tolerance" prosecution policy, the Border Patrol says the number of illegal border crossings is on the rise. The agency released its numbers on immigrants caught in May, on Wednesday, June 6. This is a blow for the Trump administration and the Department of Homeland Security. The President says strengthening efforts to stop illegal immigration at the southern border is a top priority. DHS took nearly 52,000 migrants into custody in May. That's more than three times the number arrested just a year earlier. It's also the third month in a row where this number has topped 50,000. The Border Patrol's Tucson sector plays a big role in that increase. This sector covers the area along the border from New Mexico to the western end of Pima County.

HE DELIVERED PIZZA TO AN ARMY BASE IN BROOKLYN. NOW HE FACES DEPORTATION / LIZ ROBBINS / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Food delivery. Sanctuary. Those are often the anchors for the more than half a million undocumented immigrants who live and work in New York City. But an incident at the United States Army base in Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn, last week has called those foundations into question, and provoked new tension in the city’s battle with federal immigration authorities over protections for immigrants without legal status. Pablo Villavicencio Calderon, 35, an undocumented immigrant, was making a delivery from a brick-oven pizza restaurant in Queens to the Army base next to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge on Friday before lunchtime.

WHITE HOUSE’S NAFTA APPROACH FRUSTRATES BUSINESSES, PANICKED EMAILS SHOW / ANA SWANSON / THE NEW YORK TIMES
A rocky process has plagued President Trump’s attempt to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement from the start, as internal divisions and a thinly staffed bureaucracy often left big American companies with much at stake shut out of deliberations, according to internal administration emails. The White House approach has put the future of the 1994 trade pact in doubt and left Canada, Mexico and many of the biggest American companies frustrated and bewildered. Documents show corporations and trade groups — such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers, or NAM — struggling to get their voices heard within a supposedly business-friendly administration and sending increasingly panicked emails to the United States trade representative’s office about its approach to rewriting the pact.

ACLU SUES OVER PLANS FOR CITIZENSHIP QUESTION ON 2020 CENSUS / LARRY NEUMEISTER / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Civil rights lawyers sued the U.S. Commerce Department on Wednesday to try to stop plans to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, calling it an unconstitutional attempt to discriminate against immigrants. The Manhattan federal court lawsuit on behalf of immigrants' rights groups blames racial animus for the recent announcement that the census will include a citizenship question for the first time since 1950. The lawsuit, filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and others, claims the question intentionally discriminates against immigrants and will increase fear in their communities. It alleges census participation will be depressed, diluting the economic and political power of residents in places like New York City; Prince Georges' County, Maryland; Houston; San Antonio, Texas; and the Florida counties of Miami-Dade, Broward and Orange.

WHAT WILL THE FUTURE OF EXPRESS ENTRY LOOK LIKE? / STEPHEN SMITH AND NOAH TURNER / CIC NEWS
Express Entry is attracting the high-skilled candidates it was built to attract but improvements to the skills it targets may be necessary, says the official in charge of Canada’s main economic immigration application system. In a talk last week at the 2018 Canadian Immigration Summit, Patrick McEvenue, Director of Express Entry and Digital Policy with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), said his department will be undertaking an evaluation of Express Entry in the near future in order to understand both the system’s impact along with its strengths and potential areas for improvement.

QUADRIPLEGIC WOMAN WITH NEWBORN PLEADS WITH IMMIGRATION CANADA FOR TEMPORARY VISA FOR FIANCÉ/NEGAR MOJTAHEDI/GLOBAL NEWS
A quadripeligic Edmonton woman says she feels abandoned by Canada's immigration laws. She's been fighting to bring her fiance to Canada to help raise their new son, but keeps being rejected. Sarah Kraus explains. At around 1 a.m. every day, Kuen Tang’s fiancé in China calls her to wake her up. He’s calling to make sure she turns in her bed. It’s seems like an unusual thing to call about, but Tang’s fiancé Ren Dong Fang (Jack) is trying to keep his future wife alive. Tang is a quadriplegic. People with spinal cord injuries could develop a potentially dangerous breakdown of the skin known as pressure sores. If she doesn’t move around while trying to sleep, she could die from complications related to pressure sores. (….) Her future husband can’t be with her and their Canadian baby because Immigration Canada has denied him a temporary resident’s visa on several occasions. (…)

UN GRUPO DE PAÍSES EUROPEOS PROPONE CREAR UN CENTRO DE ASILO FUERA DE LA UE / EL PAIS
Europa busca nuevas fórmulas para expulsar a los migrantes con órdenes de deportación pendientes.

DE LA PATERA AL CIE / EL PAIS
Los Centros de Internamiento de Extranjeros (CIE) siguen perfilándose más como una puerta de entrada a Europa que de salida. Especialmente para algunas nacionalidades. Los altos índices de repatriación se producen solo en los casos de inmigrantes de algunos países como Marruecos, Colombia, Rumanía o Albania. Para ellos, el CIE es la antesala del regreso a su país: el porcentaje de devoluciones y expulsiones supera el 70%.

LA « CRAINTES IDENTITAIRES » DES CATHOLIQUES FACE À L’IMMIGRATION / LE MONDE
C’est une démarche inédite. Face à la montée des crispations vis-à-vis des migrants, l’Eglise de France et plusieurs associations catholiques ont voulu connaître l’opinion des fidèles (qui représentent 53 % de la population, dont 26 % de pratiquants, selon l’Ifop) sur la question migratoire. L’objectif ? « Mieux comprendre les réactions de peur et de fermeture en vue d’opérer un changement de regard », explique Mgr Denis Jachiet, évêque auxiliaire de Paris et membre de la commission épiscopale pour les migrants. Première étape : la conduite d’une étude intitulée « Perceptions et attitudes des catholiques de France vis-à-vis des migrants » et publiée jeudi 7 juin.

'I DON’T KNOW WHERE MY FAMILY IS': CAMEROON'S REFUGEES FLEE BRUTALITY / THE GUARDIAN
You can’t sleep,” says bishop Andrew Nkea, of the Mamfe diocese in south-west Cameroon. “Even with all the stamina I have from my faith, I couldn’t sleep when I went to Kembong and saw the houses that had been burned down … I saw a corpse which had been lying there for four, five days, and dogs were tearing it apart.” A deadly conflict in Cameroon sparked by increasing tensions between English and French-speaking populations has driven tens of thousands from their homes. At least 160,000 people are displaced inside Cameroon, and more than 21,000 have fled to Nigeria to escape what has been described by bishops as “blind, inhuman, monstrous violence”. Most have settled in Cross River State.
