El diputado local secretario de la Comisión de Asuntos Municipales y del Migrante, José González Ruiz, dio a conocer que el retorno de migrantes de San Juan del Río durante periodos vacacionales ha disminuido debido a las leyes migratorias en Estados Unidos, por lo que el próximo mes se prevé una baja en el retorno de connacionales.

ESTADOS UNIDOS


JEFF SESSIONS KEEPS WAGING HIS FAILING WAR AGAINST SANCTUARY CITIES / THE WASHINGTON POST
IN ITS crusade against so-called sanctuary jurisdictions, the Trump administration is on an impressive judicial losing streak, having been slapped down in federal courts from San Francisco to Philadelphia. It remains undeterred, as the Justice Department girds for more battles whose stakes — a few million dollars in federal funds withheld from offending cities — make a mockery of the dire rhetoric deployed by officials in Washington. The administration is wrong on the law and the principle. It has no valid legal justification for its insistence that state and local law enforcement officers act as proxies for federal immigration agents and no basis for threatening to withhold funding if they refuse. By seeking to compel such conduct, the administration ignores police and prosecutors who warn that driving a wedge between law enforcement and immigrant communities will erode public safety.

HOW TRUMP IS BUILDING A BUREAUCRATIC WALL TO KEEP OUT IMMIGRANTS / MARIA SACCHETTI AND NICK MIROFF / THE WASHINGTON POST
President Donald Trump's vision of a "big, beautiful" wall along the Mexican border may never be realized, and almost certainly not as a 2,000-mile physical structure spanning sea to sea. But in a systematic and less visible way, his administration is following a blueprint to reduce the number of foreigners living in the United States — those who are undocumented and those here legally — and overhaul the U.S. immigration system for generations to come. Across agencies and programs, federal officials are wielding executive authority to assemble a bureaucratic wall that could be more effective than any concrete and metal one. While some actions have drawn widespread attention, others have been put in place more quietly.

PATH TO CITIZENSHIP RIGHT FOR DREAMERS AND THE ECONOMY, TEXAS BUSINESS LEADERS SAY / THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS
Creating a pathway to citizenship for immigrants brought to the U.S. as children isn't just morally right, it also makes economic sense, a group of Texas business leaders said Tuesday. It was one of those Dreamers, as the young immigrants are often called, who made the most impassioned plea to the bipartisan forum of about 100 people at the Dallas Regional Chamber event. “I am not owed anything,” Dallas resident Juan Carlos Cerda said. “But I do owe my country the best of me.” The 24-year-old called the U.S. his home, and said it had been since he arrived in North Texas from Mexico as a 7-year-old. The Yale-educated community organizer began his career as a kindergarten teacher in Pleasant Grove through a work permit issued by an Obama-era initiative. Cerda credited his accomplishments and success to his parents, an electrician and a factory worker, and their determination.

UTAH DACA SUPPORTERS PUSH FOR NEW LEGISLATION FOR DREAMERS / CHRISTOPHER SMART, MARIAH NOBLE / THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE
There is power in art — and undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers, let two downtown Salt Lake City installations do the talking for them Tuesday. It’s an effort, organizers said, to awaken Utah’s congressional delegation to the fact that time is running out for people who were brought to this country illegally as children and are recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. By order of President Donald Trump, the program will expire March 6 unless Congress acts. If no new reauthorization becomes law, the stage would be set for the deportation of 1,400 of Dreamers each day across the country, said John Mejia, legal director for ACLU-Utah.

JUDGE RESTORES DACA STATUS FOR L.A. IMMIGRANT BUSTED WHILE GIVING TEEN A RIDE TO BORDER AREA / HAILEY BRANSON-POTTS / LOS ANGELES TIMES
A federal court in Los Angeles has ordered the United States government to restore the protected status of an immigrant in the country illegally who was arrested near the Mexican border earlier this year while giving a ride to a teenager who was later deported. Jesus Arreola Robles, a beneficiary of President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, was arrested by Border Patrol agents on Feb. 12 in Campo, Calif., about a mile from the border, and accused of trying to smuggle someone into the United States. The 23-year-old North Hollywood resident said he thought he was giving a paid ride to a friend’s 17-year-old cousin.

TRUMP TRANSGENDER AND IMMIGRATION POLICIES MEET LEGAL DEFEAT / BBC
The Trump administration has suffered twin legal defeats on its immigration and transgender policies. A California judge permanently blocked a presidential order to cut funding from US cities that refuse to co-operate with immigration officials. And a Maryland judge blocked the administration's ban on transgender people from serving in the military. President Donald Trump's proposed travel ban has also been hit by courtroom setbacks. California US District Judge William Orrick ruled that the immigration order was "unconstitutional on its face". He temporarily blocked the order back in April. "The Constitution vests the spending powers in Congress, not the President, so the Executive Order cannot constitutionally place new conditions on federal funds," he wrote on Monday.

HOUSTON DAY LABORERS SUFFER WAGE THEFT IN POST-HARVEY RECONSTRUCTION / ILEANA NAJARRO / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
In the weeks after Hurricane Harvey, day laborers had no problem finding work as contractors from across Houston and the country rushed in to help homeowners and businesses rebuild. For Cristobal, a Guatemalan immigrant who asked that his last name be withheld because he is undocumented, it was a chance to make steady money -- $150 a day to tear down and replace a warehouse roof in South Central Houston. At first, Cristobal was paid every day, getting a wad of cash from the man who transported workers to the job site. But as the project neared completion, the paydays stopped coming until Cristobal was owed $1,350. He's still waiting to get paid and still trying to get the contractor to answer his phone.

FRONTERA ABIERTA: CELEBRAN BODA DE TRES MINUTOS ENTRE SAN DIEGO Y TIJUANA / TELEMUNDO
Un total de once familias se estrecharon este sábado en un abrazo durante la apertura momentánea de un tramo de la valla fronteriza en San Diego, en un evento que contó con la venía de las autoridades migratorias y en el que incluso se celebró una boda. El estadounidense Bryan Houston y la mexicana Evelia Reyes, que se conocieron hace tres años en la localidad de Tijuana y desde entonces han mantenido una relación a la distancia, contrajeron nupcias en una breve ceremonia de tres minutos durante la apertura de puertas de la verja limítrofe. Houston atravesó hacia el lado mexicano para besar a su futura mujer y una jueza, que ya esperaba con la documentación lista, los declaró rápidamente marido y mujer en medio de los aplausos de los asistentes a ambos lados de la frontera.

MEXICAN MAN SET FOR 5TH DEPORTATION / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
A 44-year-old Mexican man is set for deportation for a fifth time but first must serve more than 11 years in prison for being in the U.S. irregularly and for possession with intent to distribute 4.4 pounds (2 kilograms) of methamphetamine. Brownsville-based U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen added 12 months to Juan Francisco Lopez-Hernandez's sentence Tuesday for committing the most recent offenses while on probation for a previous conviction of being in the U.S. irregularly. Lopez-Hernandez, from Matamoros, Mexico, pleaded guilty in August 2016. He was arrested in April 2016 after prosecutors say he sped away from a traffic stop in Brownsville, crashed his vehicle and tried to run off. Hidalgo County deputies found the methamphetamine in his wrecked vehicle. He had previous convictions in 2001, 2003, 2007 and 2011.

IRREGULAR IMMIGRANT, 24, TOOK TEEN ACROSS STATE LINES FOR SEX, FEDS SAY / LUCIA I. SUAREZ SANG / FOX NEWS
A 24-year-old irregular immigrant spent several weeks trying to romantically pursue a 15-year-old Texas girl, eventually kidnapping the teen -- a distant relative -- at her birthday party and taking her to Georgia for sex, prosecutors say. Andres Castaneda-Guzman, of Mexico, pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnapping a minor and transporting her across state lines for the purpose of engaging in unlawful sexual activity. He was charged in the incident last week. “This kidnapping and sexual assault of a minor is stunning,” said U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak in a statement on Tuesday, adding that prosecuting violent crime, including child exploitation, is a top priority for the U.S. Department of Justice.

CANADA WARNS U.S. THAT NAFTA AUTO CHANGES WOULD BACKFIRE ON AMERICA / STEVEN CHASE AND GREG KEENAN / THE GLOBE AND MAIL
The Canadian government used NAFTA talks on Tuesday to warn the Trump administration that Washington's bid to rewrite the deal's automotive section in favour of the United States would backfire and cost Americans jobs and profits. In Mexico City, where the fifth round of North America free-trade agreement negotiations wrapped up on Tuesday, the Canadian team made a presentation outlining how destructive and self-defeating it believes the rules-of-origin proposals would be. Sources familiar with the talks outlined the conversation taking place behind closed doors. The Canadians cautioned their U.S. counterparts that the Detroit Three auto makers – General Motors, Ford and Fiat Chrysler – would suffer the most damage if these American demands were adopted, sources familiar with the negotiations said.

IMMIGRATION: QUAND LES PROPOS DE MACRON A UNE FEMME MAROCAINE FONT POLEMIQUE / CHALLENGES
Emmanuel Macron a-t-il commis une gaffe mardi? Le chef de l'État qui était dans le 10e arrondissement de Paris pour assister au lancement de la 33e campagne hivernale des Restos du cœur a tenu des propos qui font polémique. Interpellé par une femme marocaine, qui demande l'asile en France, Emmanuel Macron a répondu que la France "ne pouvait pas accueillir tous les gens qui viennent sur des visas de commerce ou d'étudiant, et qui restent après". "Je ne peux pas vous mentir. Donc après, il faut retourner dans son pays. Je vous le dis franchement", lui a fait valoir le président de la République. "Après, on aide les gens quand ils sont malades. Mais je ne peux pas donner des papiers à tous les gens qui n'en ont pas. Sinon comment je fais après, avec les gens qui sont déjà là, et qui n'arrivent pas à trouver un travail", a également expliqué Emmanuel Macron.
