TENDREMOS UNA POLÍTICA MÁS HUMANA PARA LOS MIGRANTES: SÁNCHEZ CORDERO / EXCELSIOR
Olga Sánchez Cordero, propuesta para la Secretaría de Gobernación por el virtual ganador de la elección presidencial, Andrés Manuel López obrador, afirmó que en materia de migración habrá “una política más humana, de empatía”. Yo tengo la idea que se les respete, en términos irrestrictos, los derechos humanos a los migrantes. Porque ¿con qué calidad moral vamos a hacer reclamos a Estados Unidos de cómo tratan a los migrantes, si nosotros no los tratamos adecuadamente?”, afirmó Sánchez Cordero.

DISMINUYEN ARRESTOS DE INMIGRANTES EN EU / LA JORNADA
Los arrestos de la Patrulla Fronteriza declinaron marcadamente en junio a su nivel más bajo desde febrero, según un funcionario federal, lo que pone fin a cuatro meses consecutivos al alza. La caída podría reflejar una tendencia estacional o que la política de “tolerancia cero” del presidente Donald Trump de enjuiciar a los adultos que hayan ingresado ilegalmente en el país ha tenido un efecto disuasivo.

TRUMP CALLS ON CONGRESS TO FIX 'INSANE' IMMIGRATION LAWS / MIAMI HERALD
President Donald Trump is demanding that Congress "FIX OUR INSANE IMMIGRATION LAWS NOW!" Trump, who just weeks ago said Republicans should stop wasting their time on immigration until after November's elections, says in tweets Thursday that, "Congress must pass smart, fast and reasonable Immigration Laws now." Trump says the country's current immigration laws are "insane." He says when people enter the country illegally, they should be told "OUT," and forced to leave, "just as they would if they were standing on your front lawn."

THESE IMMIGRANTS BECAME AMERICAN CITIZENS IN THE TIME OF TRUMP / MAYA ELIAHOU AND RAY SANCHEZ / CNN
More than 14,000 immigrants across the country became America's newest citizens during ceremonies that come at a time of heightened anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies.

FOR TRUMP AND ‘ANGEL FAMILIES,’ A MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL BOND / KENNETH P. VOGEL AND KATIE ROGERS / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Donald J. Trump first reached out to them about three years ago, when he was regarded as a political sideshow and they were desperate for any attention to their plight. Today, thanks to the platform now afforded by President Trump, the group he calls “angel families” — relatives of people killed by undocumented immigrants — have grown into a political force, helping him justify the most unpopular aspects of his administration’s immigration crackdown, and championing other candidates and causes devoted to limiting illegal immigration.

FACT-CHECKING TRUMP: THE TAX 'MIRACLE,' IMMIGRATION FLIP-FLOPS / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Boasting about his tax cuts, President Trump has inflated his role in boosting the economy, claiming full credit for U.S. growth that was already in the making and ignoring the reality of a mounting deficit. On immigration, he and administration officials have repeatedly spread questionable alarms by linking weak border enforcement to pervasive crime and a "surge" in MS-13 gangs. Here’s a look at some recent statements by Trump or his administration and how they stand up to the facts

MEXICAN ELECTION SCRAMBLES NAFTA TALKS / KEITH LAING / THE DETROIT NEWS
The election of a new leftist president in Mexico has scrambled already-fraught negotiations with the United States about potential changes to the North American Free Trade Agreement. After a campaign in which he frequently used President Donald Trump as a foil, Andrés Manuel López Obrador was elected president of Mexico on Sunday by a 52.9 percent to 22.5 percent margin. He will take office Dec. 1. The election of a populist who has been critical of Trump’s NAFTA demands has added another complication to talks that have already taken longer than expected and been roiled by tariff threats from the Trump administration.

‘AN ALL-AMERICAN CITY THAT SPEAKS SPANISH’: IMMIGRATION ISN’T A PROBLEM FOR THIS TEXAS TOWN — IT’S A WAY OF LIFE / KEVIN SULLIVAN / THE WASHINGTON POST
Maria’s Restaurant offers Pollo en Mole for $8.25 and patriotic red, white and blue peanut M&Ms for a quarter in a gumball machine near the front door. The menu in this family restaurant, about seven miles from the U.S.-Mexico border, is a reflection of the blended community it has served for 41 years. But now this town built on immigration has become ground zero for the nation’s nastiest political battle in the angry summer of 2018. “This is a border culture, so these people are not monsters to us,” said Carolina Garza, 31, a third-generation Mexican-American whose family runs Maria’s. She was talking about the masses of Central American immigrants flowing across the southern U.S. border by the thousands this summer seeking asylum, work and refuge from their violent homelands.

WOMAN PROTESTING IMMIGRATION POLICY CLIMBS BASE OF STATUE OF LIBERTY, FORCING EVACUATION / JENNIFER PELTZ AND JAKE PEARSON / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
A woman protesting U.S. immigration policy climbed the Statue of Liberty's base and forced the monument's evacuation on the Fourth of July hours after several other demonstrators had hung a banner on the statue's pedestal and had been arrested. About 100 feet aboveground, the climber engaged in a four-hour standoff with police before two officers climbed up to the base and went over to her. With the dramatic scene unfolding on live television, she and the officers edged carefully around the rim of the statue's robes toward a ladder, and she climbed down about 25 feet to the monument's observation point and was taken into custody.

FOR DACA RECIPIENT, ‘IT TOOK AN ARMY’ TO GET VISA / CATHERINE RAMPELL / ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL
GUADALAJARA, MEXICO, and LOS ANGELES – Finally, a family separation story with a happy ending. It’s not the sort of family separation that has been in the headlines lately. But it’s illustrative of the many other injustices that the Trump administration has been inflicting upon those navigating our legal immigration system. Absent media attention and congressional intervention – both of which this case happened to receive – they usually go unrectified. This tale features Marco Villada, a “Dreamer” brought to the United States illegally from Mexico at age 6.

AT THE U.S.-MEXICO BORDER, A NOTEBOOK HOLDS ASYLUM SEEKERS' KEY TO ENTERING AMERICA / CINDY CARCAMO / LOS ANGELES TIMES
All conversations stopped when they saw the notebook. Men, women and children — asylum seekers from Central America, Mexico, Africa and beyond — parted to make way for its keeper. The Mexican woman named Gaby waded through the crowd. She clutched the ledger-like notebook, its spine reinforced with duct tape. Mothers scooped up their toddlers. Older children dropped their toys. Fathers hushed infants. The notebook holds the names of hundreds of asylum seekers — from Guadalajara to Ghana — all trying to make their case at the San Ysidro Port of Entry. It is an improvised response, an attempt to inject order into chaos. Getting in the notebook is paramount. For the desperate foreigners whose future hinges on it, the stakes are high.

CASA GUERRERO IN LYNNWOOD SERVES REAL MEXICAN CLOSE TO HOME / BY VANESSA MCVAY / HERALD NET
For years, I’ve endured well-meaning Northwest friends recommending this or that Mexican restaurant they think will satisfy this Texas transplant’s craving for the food I grew up with. We’d always end up sitting in a place with sombreros on the wall, me smiling politely and managing faint praise and knowing I’d never, ever be back. Once a guy in North Idaho swore there was good Mexican food in town and literally took me to a Taco Bell.

CRÍTICAS A LA UE TRAS LLEGAR LOS MIGRANTES DEL ‘OPEN ARMS’ / EL PAÍS
Los 60 rescatados por el Open Arms hace cinco días frente a las costas de Libia desembarcaron ayer en el puerto de Barcelona entre cantos y saltos de alegría. La de ayer, con todo, fue una jornada agridulce para la ONG Proactiva Open Arms, que insistió en que durante los días de travesía han dejado de rescatar a cientos de personas que se lanzan al mar buscando una vida mejor. La ONG, el Ayuntamiento y la Generalitat denunciaron la actitud de la Unión Europea en el Mediterráneo.

LA DOLOROSA METAMORFOSIS DE MERKEL / EL PAÍS
Los certificados de defunción política de la eterna canciller estaban ya casi en la imprenta, cuando las artes negociadoras de Angela Merkel alumbraron en medio de la noche del lunes un alambicado acuerdo de paz con su enemigo y socio en el Gobierno. Después de casi 13 años al frente de la cancillería alemana, la líder ha superado una nueva crisis existencial pero ha emergido dañada de un conflicto que ha dejado profundas cicatrices. La pérdida de confianza mutua entre los partidos de centro-derecha del Gobierno y la inestabilidad que exuda un Ejecutivo de apenas 100 días de vida suponen un lastre para la credibilidad y el empuje del motor económico de Europa.

DE HAMON À MÉLENCHON, LA GAUCHE AFFICHE SES DIVERGENCES SUR LA QUESTION DES MIGRANTS / LE MONDE
Tous les ténors de la gauche en sont persuadés : la question des migrants sera au cœur de la campagne des élections européennes de mai 2019. Parti socialiste (PS), Génération.s et La France insoumise (LFI) appréhendent, néanmoins, différemment ce sujet. Des divergences parfois profondes qui sont loin d’être anecdotiques.
