ANYONE WHO WANTS BORDER WALLS ISN'T CHRISTIAN: POPE ON TRUMP / EL UNIVERSAL
Pope Francis said Thursday that Donald Trump is "not Christian" if he wants to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border. Trump immediately fired back, saying it is disgraceful for a religious leader to question a person's faith. Trump, a leading U.S. Republican presidential candidate, has said that if elected, he will build a wall along the Mexican border from Texas to California and expel 11 million people who are in the country illegally. The Pope's comments en route home from Mexico came hours after he prayed at the Mexican border for people who died trying to reach the United States.

MEXICAN TEEN WILL BE FIRST TO TEST NEW FORCE INDIA / EL UNIVERSAL
Force India surprised fans on Thursday by announcing Mexican teenager Alfonso Celis Jr, who has half a day's experience of Formula One, will be first to test the team's new car next week instead of a regular race driver. The 19-year-old, who was appointed development driver in November, will be at the wheel of the new VJM09 car on two of the four days of the first pre-season test at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya. Mexican Sergio Pérez and Germany's Nico Hulkenberg, who will race for the team in the season starting on March 20, will each have one day of testing.

MILES DE HISPANOS PROTESTARON EN CAPITOLIO DE WISCONSIN, EN DÍA SIN LATINOS / EL SOL DE MÉXICO
Miles de personas, 30 mil según los organizadores, rodearon el Capitolio estatal de Wisconsin convocadas por activistas que llamaron a un Día sin Latinos para protestar contra dos proyectos de ley que consideran racistas. “La nuestra es una estimación conservadora sobre la concurrencia, pero la presencia y fuerza de la comunidad latina inmigrante ha sido obvia”, declaró la directora ejecutiva de Voces de la Frontera, Christine Newman Ortiz.

ESCANEAN CARAS Y OJOS DE EXTRANJEROS QUE SALEN DE EU / EL INFORMADOR
El gobierno estadounidense anunció el jueves que utilizará escaneo de ojos y reconocimiento facial para verificar la identidad de los extranjeros que salen de Estados Unidos a pie en un transitado cruce de San Diego a México, en la medida más reciente para cerrar una vieja brecha en su seguridad. Anteriormente, rara vez revisaban las autoridades estadounidenses a los extranjeros que entraban a México o Canadá a través de los puestos fronterizos.

NARRA EN ‘UNDOCUMENTED FREEDOM’ UNA VIDA MIGRANTE / EL DIARIO DE JUÁREZ
La narrativa migratoria se ha contado de diversas maneras, desde las numerosas cifras dentro de estadísticas, hasta la retórica de candidatos presidenciales. Pero una joven cineasta que radica en la frontera busca darle voz y rostro a una de las tantas historias que normalmente no se cuentan. Laura Bustillos Jáquez, de 26 años, nació y se crió en la frontera, lugar donde desarrolló una necesidad por contar cuantas historias pudiera.

'CHIVO', EL NOMBRE MÁS SONADO EN LOS OSCAR / EXCELSIOR
Ningún nombre resuena tanto en Hollywood en este momento como "Chivo". Ése es el apodo del afamado director de cinematografía mexicano Emmanuel Lubezki, cuyos acrobáticos planos secuencia y luminosas imágenes hechas con luz natural le han merecido admiración como a muy pocos y quizás le den su tercer Oscar consecutivo. Lubezki está detrás de algunas de las fotografías más deslumbrantes del cine en los últimos años: la tormenta de asteroides precipitándose por el vasto espacio tridimensional de "Gravity",

CONSOLIDATING HISPANIC SUPPORT, CLINTON’S CAMPAIGN THROWS PUNCHES AT SANDERS / BOBBY BLANCHARD / THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS
Hillary Clinton nabbed the endorsement from another Hispanic group on Thursday during a conference call that featured plenty of swipes at Vermont Senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. The Latino Victory Fund, the political arm of a group co-founded by Hollywood star Eva Longoria that advocates for electing Hispanics to public office, endorsed Clinton. “Hillary has fought for Latinos to make sure every person has a vote,” said Latino Victory Fund President Cristobal Alex. “Hillary is a proven leader who has always, always, always stood with Latinos.” During the conference call,

CLINTON PLEDGES TO REPEAL 3 AND 10 YEAR BANS ON UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS RETURNING TO U.S. / ABBY PHILLIP / THE WASHINGTON POST
Hillary Clinton on Thursday pledged to repeal an immigration provision that blocks undocumented immigrant from returning to the United States legally for a wait period of either three or ten years. The provision, which was included in the 1996 Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act, prevented undocumented immigrants who had overstayed their visas or crossed the border illegally from returning to the U.S. legally after an extended wait period, depending on the length of time that they had been in the country illegally.

TRUMP AND POPE FRANCIS CLASH OVER IMMIGRATION, ANOTHER EXTRAORDINARY CAMPAIGN TWIST / LOS ANGELES TIMES
When two of the most visible figures on the international stage, Pope Francis and Donald Trump, exchanged sharp words over immigration Thursday, an extraordinary election year took another dramatic twist. The long-distance volley, impelled, like so much of the campaign, by Trump’s language on Mexican immigration, created a moment that actually merited the overused label “unprecedented.” Popes have often commented on other countries’ politics. But no pope has as pointedly remarked on a central issue in a U.S. presidential campaign as Francis did to reporters on his plane back to the Vatican after his trip to Mexico.

HOW ECONOMIC FEARS IN SOUTH CAROLINA COULD EXPLAIN THE ANTI-IMMIGRATION FERVOR FAVORING TRUMP AND CRUZ / JIM TANKERSLEY / THE WASHINGTON POST
Rich Bolen is a lawyer and a conservative activist in a county where it is hard to find any sign of illegal immigrants. But he worries immigrants are drawing down government welfare and could even carry out terrorist attacks, and so he favors a crack down. “If the economy were great, if we were all flush with cash and there were lots of jobs, people wouldn’t care about illegal immigrants, except for national security,” said Bolen, who chairs Sen. Ted Cruz’s campaign in the county, and whose wife supports Donald Trump — the two most outspoken Republican candidates on immigration issues.

A LITTLE REALITY ON IMMIGRATION / DAVID BROOKS / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Donald Trump built his campaign on the promise to build a wall along the Mexican border. The idea is attention-grabbing (and unworkable). But the striking thing is that it’s not too far away from the current Republican orthodoxy. Not long ago you could be a movement conservative and be for reasonably open immigration policies. Ronald Reagan, Jack Kemp, Steve Forbes and George W. Bush all took open positions on immigration. But times have changed. Now you prove your conservative credentials by saying you want to deport undocumented aliens. Now you prove it by opposing higher immigration flows.

WANT TO VOTE IN THIS STATE? YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PASSPORT OR DIG UP A BIRTH CERTIFICATE / SARI HORWITZ / WASHINGTON POST
Ralph Ortiz served in the Air Force for 13 years. He was stationed on bases in the Middle East and in Kansas, where he decided to live after leaving the military. He registered to vote more than a year ago. But Ortiz was stunned to find out recently that his name was purged from the Kansas voting rolls because of a requirement he did not know about: He had to prove he was a U.S. citizen. Ortiz had gone to the Kansas Department of Motor Vehicles to renew his license, and he registered to vote at the same time. Ortiz did not have documents that prove his citizenship, and no one asked him for any.

WINNING VOTES IN NEVADA USUALLY MEANS COURTING, NOT BASHING, IMMIGRANTS / DANIEL GONZÁLEZ AND DAN NOWICKI / THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC
Since he became a U.S. citizen 20 years ago, Carlos Filoteo has voted almost exclusively for Democrats, beginning with President Bill Clinton’s re-election in 1996. In December, Filoteo accepted an invitation from his two Republican sons-in-law to attend a campaign rally for U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., at the Renaissance Hotel. During a 20-minute speech, Rubio, who lived in Las Vegas as a child, spoke about his Cuban immigrant parents, and how “through hard work and perseverance” they had managed to achieve the American dream — happiness,

CRISTINA ANTELO, NUEVO LIDERAZGO PARA EL CONGRESSIONAL HISPANIC CAUCUS INSTITUTE / ALBERTO AVENDAÑO / THE WASHINGTON POST
Dice que su pasión por la comunidad latina y su “aprecio por una organización que me importa y de la que soy parte” le ha llevado a aceptar, de manera interina, la posición de presidenta y CEO del Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. Desde que la anterior CEO, Esther Aguilera, dejara el cargo en 2015 la organización buscaba nuevo liderazgo y Cristina Antelo aceptó el reto. “Es un enorme reto y esa es la razón por la que acepté”, cuenta Antelo. “Es una organización con un presupuesto de $10 millones,

4.6 PERCENT OF PEOPLE IN TEXAS PRISONS REPORTEDLY ARE UNAUTHORIZED IMMIGRANTS / CHRIS SIRON / THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS
Less than 5 percent of the people imprisoned in Texas are in the U.S. illegally, according to a report in The Texas Tribune. Sexual assault against a child reportedly is the most common crime for such inmates, and homicide was identified as the second most common. It has been estimated that 16 percent of the unauthorized immigrants in the United States live in Texas. Reports have suggested there are more than 11 million people in the U.S. who immigrated illegally.

IN HER SERIES 'MAKE 'EM ALL MEXICAN,' ARTIST LINDA VALLEJO IMAGINES #OSCARSSOBROWN / LOS ANGELES TIMES
This may be the moment of #OscarsSoWhite, but one Los Angeles artist prefers to imagine it as the year of #OscarsSoBrown. Since 2011, Linda Vallejo has transformed found bits of Americana -- a Bob’s Big Boy statue or figurines of Elvis and Gary Cooper from “High Noon” -- into more Mexican-ized icons with careful applications of brown paint. Big Boy therefore becomes “Muchachote,” Elvis becomes “El Vis” and Cooper is turned into “El Vaquero de High Noon.”

MORE THAN 70% OF CANADIANS THINK LIBERALS’ NEW REFUGEE TARGET IS TOO HIGH: POLL / KELLY HOBSON / NATIONAL POST
More than 70 per cent of Canadians don’t support the federal government taking in more than 25,000 Syrian refugees, according to a new poll from the Angus Reid Institute. Two in five respondents think Canada should stop taking in Syrian refugees immediately. As of Tuesday, more than 21,000 refugees had arrived in Canada, according to the government’s website. The government is working to meet its target of 25,000 Syrian refugees by the end of February.

MORE REFUGEES COMING TO VICTORIA, AND MUCH SOONER THAN EXPECTED / JEFF BELL / TIMES COLONIST
Instead of getting about 240 government-assisted Syrian refugees over 14 months as proposed, Victoria is now scheduled to receive 290 by the end of February. “We’ve got a challenging job ahead of us,” said Jean McRae, executive director of the Inter-Cultural Association, which will be supporting the newcomers. She said the ICA will be helped by the Red Cross and other organizations. McRae said the association is part of an alliance of immigrant-welcome centres on the Island in Duncan, Nanaimo, Parksville, Courtenay/Comox and Campbell River.

OTTAWA ASSUMERA DE NOUVEAU LES SOINS DE SANTE POUR TOUS LES REFUGIES / MARIE VASTEL / LE DEVOIR
Les nouveaux réfugiés venus refaire leur vie au Canada verront à nouveau leurs soins de santé couverts par Ottawa. Le gouvernement libéral annule la réforme à géométrie variable mise en place par les conservateurs. Une « bonne nouvelle » saluée par les intervenants auprès de réfugiés, qui notent toutefois que le système d’antan était néanmoins imparfait. À compter du 1er avril, les demandeurs d’asile auront accès aux mêmes soins de santé que les Canadiens qui ont recours à l’aide sociale — services hospitaliers et médicaux de base,

CHINA PLEDGES TO WELCOME FOREIGNERS TO BOOST INNOVATION, INVESTMENT AND BUSINESS / NATHAN VANDERKLIPPE / THE GLOBE AND MAIL
It is one of the more difficult pieces of paper to secure: a Chinese green card. Since 2004, China has only handed out roughly 800 a year. More people, on average, get North Korea tourist visas stamped into their passports. Demand for permanent residency in China has not been overwhelming, either, as smoggy skies and rising pressure on foreign business send workers and companies fleeing to better air and opportunities elsewhere. Now, however, as China’s economy slows,

SYRIAN REFUGEES IN QUEBEC'S FRENCH-INTEGRATION CLASSES LEARNING FAST, HAVING FUN / GIUSEPPE VALIANTE / TIMES COLONIST
Elementary school teacher Evelyn Bissonnette asks her 14 young students to stand up, one by one, and introduce themselves. "Hello," a confident young boy says in French. "My name is George and I am seven years old and I speak French, Arabic and English. And I come from Syria." George moved to Canada less than two months ago and already speaks French with little to no Arabic accent. "And do you have any brothers or sisters?" asks Bissonnette, whose French-integration class includes 11 Syrian refugees aged six and seven.

GRECIA PIDE A UE FRONTERAS ABIERTAS HASTA MARZO / LA JORNADA
Grecia pidió a sus socios de la Unión Europea que no cierren sus fronteras a los refugiados hasta marzo, o rehusará adoptar un acuerdo que mantenga a Gran Bretaña en el bloque, en las negociaciones este viernes sobre este asunto. Agobiada por la llegada de refugiados en camino al norte de Europa, Grecia pidió "que se decida de forma unánime que hasta (la cumbre UE-Turquía prevista) el 6 de marzo ningún Estado cerrará unilateralmente sus fronteras". "En caso contrario, el gobierno griego no aprobará el texto" que salga de la llamada cumbre del 'Brexit',
