ADVOCATES: ASYLUM-SEEKERS ARE BEING TURNED AWAY AT BORDER / ELLIOT SPAGAT / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Immigrant advocacy groups said Tuesday that U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers are allegedly turning away asylum-seekers before their claims can be heard, violating obligations under U.S. and international law. The groups said they began fielding reports in the summer that border crossers entering the country from Mexico were being told that they couldn't seek asylum, that they needed visas, or that that they first had to petition Mexican authorities for relief. Under U.S. law, any foreigner may claim asylum.

WHEN CAN IMMIGRANTS BE DEPORTED FOR CRIMES? JUSTICES HEAR SIDES / ADAM LIPTAK / THE NEW YORK TIMES
The Supreme Court considered on Tuesday how broad the government’s authority is to deport immigrants who commit serious crimes. The question was in one sense fairly technical, concerning whether a federal law on the subject was unconstitutionally vague. In another sense, though, the argument was part of a larger debate over the nation’s immigration laws, which President-elect Donald J. Trump has pledged to enforce vigorously. Justice Sonia Sotomayor said the laws have grown increasingly draconian. “We have many more criminal sanctions with harsher sentences now,”

SANTA ANA ADOPTS SANCTUARY CITY LAW / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
The city of Santa Ana has adopted a law to become a sanctuary city and protect immigrants regardless of their legal status. The Orange County Register reports (http://bit.ly/2jx1Ytn) that the city council voted 6-0 Tuesday for the ordinance. The law requires the city of 335,000 people to implement policies to ban the use of city resources for immigration enforcement and prevent biased policing. After Donald Trump's election on promises to build a border wall and step up deportations, Santa Ana passed a resolution declaring itself a safe haven for immigrants, then moved forward to draft and adopt the law. Santa Ana has previously said it is phasing out a contract to house immigrant detainees for the federal government at its jail.

CUBANS BEMOAN END OF 'WET FOOT, DRY FOOT' IMMIGRATION POLICY / ADRIANA GOMEZ LICON AND JENNIFER KAY / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
In a hotel room in suburban Miami, Luis Alberto Rodriguez wept when he heard that a government policy granting residency to Cubans who arrive on U.S. soil was ending. That means it could take two years or more before his wife and two children still in Cuba can legally join him here. Rodriguez arrived in Laredo, Texas, on New Year's Eve, a journey that took him through 10 countries. He had hoped his family would be able to follow shortly afterward,

ME REPATRIARON DE EEUU; PERO EN MÉXICO ME GRADUÉ / GARDENIA MENDOZA / LA OPINIÓN
El próximo mes de mayo, Valeria Aragón va a ser licenciada en Relaciones Internacionales. Tiene éxito si se toma en cuenta que en México sólo uno de cuatro estudiantes que ingresan a la universidad logran terminar los estudios y más aún porque se trata de una alumna sui generis que luchó sola por seguir adelante a miles de kilómetros de sus padres. Hace 10 años fue detenida y deportada por los servicios de migración de Estados Unidos (ICE) cuando iba a tomar un autobús de Miami a Naples donde tenía su hogar y desde donde viajó para ir a ver un concierto de Ricky Martin.
