America’s competitors angle for Silicon Valley’s business 5.8.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
Trump’s plans, combined with a U.S. political climate that has left many immigrants feeling less welcome, has cast a pall of uncertainty over the U.S. tech industry, which relies heavily on highly skilled workers from abroad. Under the program, which was in development before Trump’s election victory, the Canadian government has promised to approve two-year visas in less than two weeks — blindingly fast compared with the process in the United States. In Mexico, states with growing regional tech hubs, like Jalisco, have been redoubling their efforts to attract talent and investment in recent months, peddling a philosophy of openness that departs from what Sandoval called Trump’s “xenophobia” and “lack of global vision.” The Chronicle published an opinion piece by Sandoval pitching the advantages of doing business in his state. China’s tech leaders have also been seizing the opportunity created by Trump’s immigration policies. Wang Huiyao, founder and president of the Center for China and ...

As Trump Targets Teenagers for Deportation, Immigrants Push Back With Direct Action 28.7.2017
Activists march near the Texas state capitol in Austin, Texas, in protest of immigration officials' arrests of teenage immigrants in a demonstration on July 26, 2017. (Image: Democracy Now!) In Austin, Texas, four undocumented immigrants were arrested protesting President Trump's crackdown on sanctuary cities and plans to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. This comes as Immigration and Customs Enforcement carried out raids targeting undocumented teenagers it says are affiliated with gangs. ICE's criteria for assessing gang affiliation includes whether teenagers have tattoos, wear clothing typical to a gang or even spend time in an area that's known to have gangs. We speak with Catalina Adorno, one of those arrested in Texas, and with Alex Sanchez of Homies Unidos about how many immigrants are being wrongfully targeted as gang members.

California Lawmakers Move to Protect Undocumented Workers 17.7.2017 Truthout - All Articles
San Francisco—If immigration agents show up at a worksite, employers don't have to let them in. That is one of the key messages immigrant rights advocates are sending out as a new bill that would increase protections for workers makes its way through committees in the California legislature. Employers across the country already have certain rights, said Grisel Ruiz, staff attorney of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC). "If an employer has ICE agents coming to their workplace, so long as the workplace is private property, they should also keep ICE agents out…unless they have an ICE warrant," she said. Ruiz spoke on a national press call last week hosted by New America Media and Ready California. Proposed legislation in California would go a step further in protecting workers and helping employers navigate what happens when ICE agents show up at their business. Under the Immigrant Worker Protection Act, AB 450 (David Chiu, D-San Francisco), employers would be required to ask for a warrant before ...

(Photo: Eduardo Munoz Alvarez / Getty Images) Increasingly, various segments of the far right -- including some who previously would not be seen in the same room -- are coming together based on their mutual hatred of Muslims. It is crucial to understand how different far-right groups are deploying Islamophobia as a unifying tool -- and how this affects the growth of the far right as a whole.
