MÉXICO, LA ONU Y EL MURO DE TRUMP / EL UNIVERSAL
La posibilidad de utilizar a la ONU para combatir el plan de Donald Trump —la construcción de un muro en la frontera con México— ha estado flotando entre algunos políticos. El dirigente de Morena, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, propuso que el gobierno mexicano lleve el expediente a la más alta tribuna de la Organización de las Naciones Unidas, con una queja formal contra el presidente de Estados Unidos. Porfirio Muñoz Ledo sugiere que el caso se introduzca en el Consejo de Seguridad de las Naciones Unidas, donde por cierto Washington tiene derecho de veto.

CHICAGO SOLDIER FIGHTS DEPORTATION AFTER SERVING TIME FOR DRUG CHARGE / MANYA BRACHEAR PASHMAN / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Pfc. Miguel Perez Jr. remembers seeing the sun rise in Afghanistan on July 4, 2003. As his U.S. special forces unit rounded a bend toward Kandahar, he saw an American flag flying high above base camp, a beacon that he had survived the mission. "There was a lot of action at that time," said Perez, 38, a Mexican-born legal permanent resident of the U.S. and a decorated Army veteran who served two tours in Afghanistan. "I didn't think I was coming back. Just seeing the 50 stars and stripes did something to my skin.

EUROPEAN POPULISTS SEEK "TRUMP BOOST" FOR ANTI-ISLAM STANCES / JOHN LEICESTER / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
In Donald Trump, Europe's populist leaders think they have found a champion. For now. The opening salvoes of Trump's presidency, most notably his ban on immigration from seven Muslim-majority nations, are being gleefully milked by anti-Muslim lawmaker Geert Wilders in the Netherlands and other populist leaders in Germany, Italy and elsewhere who want to roll back the European Union and stem the influx of migrants and refugees. Ignoring the anti-Trump protests, the wide criticism and legal challenges that have erupted over the new U.S. president's ban,

JERSEY CITY MAYOR TO SIGN SANCTUARY CITY EXECUTIVE ORDER / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
New Jersey's second-largest city is reaffirming its place as a sanctuary city for people living in the country illegally despite the threat from President Donald Trump to slash federal funding. Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop on Friday planned to sign an executive order outlining a policy for the city's police department and other agencies to work with the immigrant community. Fulop's office says the order will prevent city resources from being used to enforce federal immigration law in a city in which 40 percent of the population is foreign-born. Newark Mayor Ras Baraka,

'SANCTUARY CITIES' BILL ADVANCES IN TEXAS, DESPITE OUTCRY / WILL WEISSERT / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
A Texas Senate panel shrugged off 16 hours of sometimes tearful pleas and defiant opposition to approve a "sanctuary cities" proposal that would withhold grant funding from local jurisdictions that don't hand over immigrants already in custody for possible deportation. A 7-2 vote around 12:45 a.m. Friday from the chamber's powerful State Affairs Committee sends the bill to the full Senate, where a vote could come as early as next week. Hundreds of Texans traveled from all over the state to testify on the bill and proceedings were repeatedly disrupted by protesters.

HOW TRUMP — AND CONGRESS — SHOULD DEAL WITH THE DREAMERS / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Will he or won't he? Young immigrants who were granted protection from deportation by President Barack Obama are anxious to see if President Donald Trump yanks it away. During his campaign, Trump promised to "immediately terminate" the program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, under which young adults brought here illegally by their parents are allowed to stay, finish school and work. At his first press briefing, though, press secretary Sean Spicer said Trump had more pressing immigration priorities, including building a border wall and deporting immigrants with criminal records.

AP EXPLAINS: WHY AUSTRALIA-US REFUGEE DEAL IS CONTENTIOUS / KRISTEN GELINEAU / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Amid the drama over a refugee resettlement deal between Australia and the United States, the White House has issued a series of conflicting statements on whether the agreement is still on, how many refugees it involves, and who, exactly, are the refugees. A look at what's at stake: AUSTRALIA DOESN'T WANT BOAT REFUGEES Under the Obama administration, the U.S. agreed to resettle a group of refugees who are being held at detention camps on the impoverished Pacific island nations of Nauru and Papua New Guinea. The Australian government pays both countries to house the refugees, because it refuses to settle any of them in Australia.

ESSENTIAL POLITICS: STATE SENATE COMMITTEE MOVES TO ASSIST IMMIGRANTS, WHAT CALIFORNIA'S MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ARE SAYING ABOUT TRUMP'S EXECUTIVE ORDER / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Battles over Airbnb and other short-term rentals are ongoing in city halls across California. But despite their efforts, state lawmakers have failed to pass legislation either to crack down on short-term rentals or make it easier for the industry to operate. The reason: Neither Airbnb nor their opponents, chiefly those in the labor movement, have been able to out-muscle each other politically nor have legislators figured out how to address sticky tax issues between cities and the state.

THE UNIVISION BLACKOUT ISN'T ABOUT LATINOS' ACCESS TO NEWS — IT'S ABOUT MONEY / JON HEALEY / LOS ANGELES TIMES
The Spanish-language television network Univision is back on cable TV in Los Angeles after a two-day blackout, thanks to a temporary restraining order issued by a judge in New York.

VERMONT DISCUSSES CONCERNS ABOUT IMMIGRANT FARMWORKERS / LISA RATHKE / SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
Vermont agriculture officials are discussing how to replace immigrant farmworkers, who are key to the success of the state's dairy industry, should they be targeted under the Trump administration's immigrant policy. The state has about 1,000 Latino farm workers who are working or seeking work, and many are likely living in the country illegally, said Erin Shea, migrant education program director for the University of Vermont Extension Service.

Immigrant rights activists in Las Cruces are calling on Dona Ana County Sheriff Kiki Vigil to meet with them to discuss the department's polices on enforcing federal immigration laws. A group of faith leaders and immigrant advocates are meeting on Friday morning to pressure the sheriff. They say Vigil canceled a community meeting that was supposed to take place last week.

OBAMA-PROTECTED IMMIGRANTS COULD LOSE OUT UNDER TRUMP / DANIEL DEMAY / SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS
President Donald Trump so far hasn’t let down those who hoped he would act swiftly on immigration. Before the end of his first full week in office, he had signed an order temporarily halting entry of nationals from seven predominantly Muslim nations, as well as refugees worldwide. But in the flurry of that and other orders handed down by Trump, another set of immigrants -- protected from deportation by President Barack Obama -- has gotten little attention. Roughly 750,000 immigrants nationwide (more than 17,000 in Washington) are protected by Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA),

APRES LE VOTE, LE LIVRE BLANC DU BREXIT / JACQUES KLOPP / LE DEVOIR
Au lendemain d’un vote « historique » au Parlement, le gouvernement britannique a publié jeudi sa stratégie sur le Brexit dans un livre blanc qui reprend les grands axes déjà dévoilés, dont la sortie du marché unique. Très attendu, ce livre blanc de 77 pages s’articule autour des mêmes 12 points que la première ministre britannique, Theresa May, avait exposés le 17 janvier lors d’un discours vantant « un Royaume-Uni indépendant et véritablement mondial ».
