"SER DEPORTADO ES EMPEZAR DE CERO EN TU PAÍS DE ORIGEN" / ISIS RÁBAGO / MILENIO
Luego de 16 años de vivir de manera ilegal en Estados Unidos, en febrero de este año, Alfonso Pinzón Armijo fue deportado a México, a donde llegó sin nada, pues todos los bienes adquiridos se pierden al momento en que los regresan a su país de origen. Las nuevas políticas de Donald Trump, hoy más que en otros años, hace más difícil la estancia de los indocumentados, quienes viven con mayor temor a que en cualquier momento puedan ser detenidos y deportados, manifestó Pinzón Armijo.

REP. LUIS GUTIERREZ, LONGTIME ADVOCATE FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM, IS SET TO RETIRE, DEMOCRATS SAY / ED O'KEEFE / THE WASHINGTON POST
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), a longtime advocate for comprehensive immigration reform and strident critic of the Trump administration, is set to announce Tuesday he is retiring from Congress, according to multiple Democrats familiar with the decision. Calls to the congressman were not answered Monday night. His top spokesman, Doug Rivlin, declined to comment. The Democrats who described Gutierrez’s plans expected him to serve out the remainder of his term, which expires in early 2019. Gutierrez held an event in Chicago on Monday alongside Mayor Rahm Emanuel and is slated to hold a news conference in Chicago on Tuesday morning.

WHITE HOUSE AND GOP LOOK TO AVOID IMMIGRATION FIGHT AS SHUTDOWN LOOMS / SARAH WESTWOOD / THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER
President Trump is set to huddle with congressional leaders on Tuesday as lawmakers scramble to strike a spending deal that will prevent the government from shutting down when its funding dries up next month. White House officials want to avoid a showdown over immigration that could upend spending negotiations by injecting a contested partisan issue into the conversation. Republicans, too, have signaled an unwillingness to allow the government to shut down at the height of their push to pass a tax reform bill, which they hope to place on the president’s desk before the end of the year. Some Democrats, however, have shown interest in pursuing an immigration deal tied to a bill that funds the government through the end of the next fiscal year. Others have even suggested the immigration deal must be tied to the short-term funding bill lawmakers expect to pass in order to buy more time to negotiate the larger spending package.

TRUMP HEADS TO HILL FOR HARD-SELL PUSH ON TAXES, BUDGET, IMMIGRATION / ANDREW TAYLOR / CHICAGO SUN TIMES
President Donald Trump makes a new push Tuesday for his year-end agenda as he heads to the Capitol to rally Senate Republicans on taxes, then pivots to White House negotiations with Democrats and GOP leaders over the budget and immigration. Trump is still seeking his first marquee win in Congress, but the White House and top GOP leaders have work to do to get their tax bill in shape before a hoped-for vote later this week. Party deficit hawks pressed for a “backstop” mechanism to limit the risk of a spiral in the deficit, even as defenders of small business pressed for more generous treatment for Main Street. On a separate track from taxes is a multi-layered negotiation over a huge Pentagon budget increase sought by Trump and Republicans and increases for domestic programs demanded by Democrats.

JUDGE ORDERS U.S. TO DELAY DEPORTING INDONESIANS IN IMMIGRATION FIGHT / SCOTT MALONE / REUTERS
A federal judge on Monday ordered U.S. immigration officials to delay any efforts to deport 51 Indonesians living illegally in New Hampshire so the group can have time to argue that changing conditions in that country would make it dangerous to return. The order affects a group of Indonesian Christians who fled violence in that country two decades ago and had been living openly for years in New England under an informal deal. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials in August began ordering them to prepare to leave the country within two months. Most members of the group covered by the 2010 deal with ICE entered the United States legally but overstayed their visas and failed to seek asylum on time.

IMMIGRANTS PREFERRED BY EMPLOYERS OVER NATIVE WORKERS, REPORT SAYS / NICOLE RODRIGUEZ / NEWSWEEK
An increasing number of employers across the country are snubbing American workers for immigrants they say work harder and complain less than their black and white native counterparts, according to a new study. Favoring immigrants fosters workplace discrimination largely against low-skilled black and white American workers, according to the study, published in the winter issue of American Affairs Journal, a quarterly journal about public policy and political thought. The report stands in stark contrast with expert and immigrant advocacy group claims that immigrants don’t steal American jobs.

WHO ARE THE IMMIGRANT KIDS WE ARE TORMENTING? / JOHN THOMPSON / THE HUFFINGTON POST
I wish everyone could have heard Oklahoma City Public School System Board member Gloria Torres’ heartfelt presentation to the Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy’s Kids Count 2017 Forum describing the ordeals being dumped on immigrant children. Teaching during the Great Recession, I’d had a glimpse of the brutality first unleashed by the Oklahoma law patterned after the toughest anti-immigration law in the nation. For instance, my student and his family were caught “Driving While Hispanic” and told they wouldn’t be turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents if they got on their knees and begged. They were then deported.

Of those 105 individuals, 44 were identified as being in this country illegally and a priority for federal deportation procedures.

EL PASO JUDGE DENIES MOTION OF IMMIGRANT PARENTS SEPARATED FROM CHILDREN / LOMI KRIEL / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
U.S. Magistrate Judge Miguel Torres denied Monday an unprecedented motion to dismiss criminal charges against four Central American parents and one grandmother for illegally crossing the border and who were separated from their accompanying children as a result. The Office of the Federal Public Defender for the Western District of Texas argued that prosecuting potential asylum seekers and removing their children violates the U.S. Constitution because they are pleading guilty under duress to be reunited with their kids. The government contended that the separations had nothing to do with the criminal accusation at hand of entering the country without authorization.

PRO-IMMIGRANT GERMAN MAYOR STABBED IN THE NECK / THE NEW YORK POST
The conservative mayor of a small town in western Germany who is known for his liberal migrant policy was stabbed in the neck at a snack stand on Monday evening and seriously hurt. A man who witnessed the attack in the town of Altena told German television that a man, probably under the influence of alcohol, stabbed the mayor in the neck with a 30 cm long knife while shouting criticism of his asylum policy. “The security authorities believe that there was a political motive to this attack,” said Armin Laschet, premier of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

ACTOR BAMBADJAN BAMBA COMES OUT AS UNDOCUMENTED: 'WE JUST CAN'T BE SCARED ANYMORE.' / TRE'VELL ANDERSON / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Bambadjan Bamba has only the fondest memories of growing up in the African country of Cote D'Ivoire. But in 1993, after that nation’s first president, Félix Houphouët-Boigny, died and it became politically unstable, Bamba’s family fled to the United States for protection. At 10, America became his new home. Twenty-five years later, however, the actor perhaps best known for his recurring role on NBC’s “The Good Place” doesn’t quite feel like an American. Sure, he’s perfected the accent and erased every hint of foreign-born-ness from his speech. But since high school, he’s carried around a secret burden he’s ready to reveal: He’s undocumented. Bamba is one of the estimated 11 million undocumented Americans living in the United States, according to Pew research. He’s told very few people of his citizenship status — until now.

THE NAFTA YEARS HAVE BEEN TERRIBLE FOR MEXICAN GROWTH / ERIC MARTIN / BLOOMBERG
What’s the opposite of a growth miracle? Whatever the term, it applies in spades to Mexico in the Nafta era. Poor countries are expected to grow faster than rich ones, and they need to. Trade agreements are supposed to help. Yet by almost any benchmark -- certainly the ones trumpeted by the deal’s architects a quarter-century ago -- the Mexican economy’s performance has been dismal. Growth of 2.5 percent a year since 1994 is less than half the developing-world average. It’s pretty much the same as the U.S. and Canada. But even that’s misleading. Because Mexico’s population expands much faster, the economic pie has to be divided among more and more people. So the average Mexican earns less today, relative to U.S. and Canadian peers, than before Nafta.

HOW AN INDIAN-AMERICAN CHEF FROM KENTUCKY FOUND PEACE COOKING MEXICAN FOOD / EMILY TAN / NBC NEWS
When chef Akhtar Nawab heard his Mexican restaurant in Brooklyn received an honor from the Michelin Guide in November, he didn’t know how to take it. How was it possible that Michelin had chosen Alta Calidad to receive a “Bib Gourmand” — a distinction given to high-quality restaurants where a diner can order two entrees and a drink or dessert for under $40 — while The New York Times had yet to publish a review, Nawab remembers thinking. But after his business partner, Michael Wetherbee, reassured him that Alta Calidad was part of the list, Nawab couldn’t help but be happy.

L’IMMIGRATION POUR PALLIER LA PENURIE DE MAIN-D’ŒUVRE EN REGION / RADIO CANADA
L'immigration pourrait être une solution au manque de travailleurs dans les régions, selon le ministre de l'Immigration, de la Diversité et de l'Inclusion, David Heurtel. Un texte de Joane Bérubé avec la collaboration d'Ariane Perron-Langlois. Le ministre David Heurtel souhaite que les régions soient mises à profit pour accueillir les immigrants. Le ministre veut, dit-il, « régionaliser l’immigration ». Il a fait cette déclaration devant près de 80 élus et gens d’affaires de la région de Rivière-du-Loup. Le ministre a fait état des différentes mesures qu’il entend proposer pour faire ce virage. Ainsi, l’installation en région pourrait, par exemple, équivaloir à des « points » supplémentaires lorsque les gens remplissent leur demande d’immigration.
