MEXICANS CROSSING U.S. BORDER TO FILL UP THEIR TANKS / NOÉ CRUZ / EL UNIVERSAL
High prices and the temporary closing of around 130 gas stations in Mexico's northern border zone has led to many Mexicans crossing the U.S.-Mexico border to fill their tanks at lower prices, according to the president of Mexico's National Organization of Petroleum Exporting Companies (Onexpo), José Angel García Elizondo. According to José Angel, in certain areas such as Mexicali and Rosarito in the northern state of Baja California,

MEXICO SAYS THERE IS ‘NO WAY’ IT WILL PAY FOR BORDER WALL / ANTHONY HARRUP / THE WALLS STREET JOURNAL
Mexico’s newly appointed Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said Tuesday there is “no way” his country will pay for a wall that U.S. President-elect Donald Trump wants to build along the border between the two countries. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto named Mr. Videgaray last week as foreign minister, as Mexico braces for a complex relationship with its neighbor and main trade partner under Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump last week said any money spent by the U.S. in building the wall would be paid back later by Mexico.

HERE ARE 8 CONCRETE STEPS MEXICO NEEDS TO TAKE TO PREPARE FOR TRUMP’S DEPORTATIONS / RAFA FERNANDEZ DE CASTRO / FUSION
The advent of the Trump presidency leaves Mexico with little choice but to hope for the best and plan for the worst. At least one would think so. In reality, Mexico doesn’t seem to be doing much of either—they can see the storm approaching, but haven’t done enough to prepare. With just 10 days to go before Trump’s inauguration, Mexico appears unready to deal with a new U.S. president who built his campaign by railing against their country and people. For many Mexicans, that lack of strategy is unsettling.

US, MEXICO BUSINESS LEADERS PLAN TO CONVINCE TRUMP CROSS-BORDER TRADE IS GOOD FOR BOTH COUNTRIES / ALFREDO CORCHADO / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Mexican and U.S. business leaders are quietly strengthening coalitions from America's heartland to North Texas to persuade a skeptical Donald J. Trump to maintain strong ties between the two countries. The president-elect has sent ambiguous signals over future and past trade deals and building a wall, or perhaps just a fence along the border with Mexico. The plan is to make the case that Mexico is not China and should be treated not as an adversary,

DC MAYOR ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR IMMIGRANT DEFENSE FUND / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Washington's mayor says the city is "doubling down" on its status as a sanctuary city for immigrants who lack legal permission to remain in the United States. Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Monday that the city will spend $500,000 to help immigrants fight deportation. The money will be handed out as grants to lawyers and organizations that help immigrants stay in the United States. The announcement places the District of Columbia alongside the state of New York and the cities of Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles, which have announced plans for similar legal defense funds.

BROTHER OF SAN BERNARDINO SHOOTER GUILTY IN IMMIGRATION CASE / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
The brother of one of the shooters in the San Bernardino terror attack pleaded guilty Tuesday in an immigration fraud case stemming from the probe into the killings.

The 31-year-old is the brother of Syed Rizwan Farook, who was killed along with his wife in a shootout with police after the Dec. 2, 2015 attack in which 14 people were slain and 22 injured.

MARTINEZ AVOIDS CRITICIZING TRUMP OVER NO HISPANIC PICKS / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
The nation's only Latina governor is avoiding attacking President-elect Donald Trump over not appointing a Hispanic cabinet member. New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, who clashed with Trump during the election, said Tuesday the new president has the right to pick "the best and the brightest" for his team — even if that means there won't be a Latino in his cabinet. None of Trump's cabinet picks is Latino. The Trump administration could be the first one in three decades not to have a Hispanic cabinet secretary.

NAFTA BENEFITS MORE THAN JUST TRADE, BUT IT NEEDS TO BE CHANGED / JONATHAN LEVINSON / THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS
When Donald Trump makes good on his promise to rework or scrap the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) — as his frequent tweets on the subject suggest he will — Mexico is expected to use the security cooperation between the two countries as a major bargaining chip. Trade between the U.S. and Mexico was worth $531 billion in 2015. And Mexico is Texas' number one export market, worth $92 million and making up 37 percent of the state's total exports.

GANG DATABASE CRITICIZED FOR DENYING DUE PROCESS MAY BE USED FOR DEPORTATIONS / JENNIFER MEDINA / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Peter Arellano was standing on the street with his father last year when an officer from the Los Angeles Police Department handcuffed him, supposedly for vandalism a few blocks away. Before asking him for any information about the incident, the police officer asked him for his gang moniker, Mr. Arellano said. He told the officer he had none. But moments later, Mr. Arellano was served with a gang injunction, restricting where he could go in public and with whom.

QUEBEC SUSPEND LES DEMANDES DE PARRAINAGE DE REFUGIES AU PRIVE POUR 2017 / LISA-MARIE GERVAIS / LE DEVOIR

FORMER REFUGEE AHMED HUSSEN TAKES OVER IMMIGRATION MINISTRY / ALEX BALLINGALL / THE STAR
In 2004, Ahmed Hussen was proclaimed a “Person to Watch” in the country’s biggest city for his community work in Regent Park. He told the Star at the time: “I don’t think I could handle the life of a politician . . . I don’t want to be front and centre.” Flash forward to Tuesday, and there was Hussen, front and slightly to the right, swearing an oath to serve the Queen in front of a cluster of clicking cameras as he officially joined the reshuffled Liberal cabinet of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
