CONDICIONAN DEMÓCRATAS VOTO POR AMPARO PARA DREAMERS / JULIANA HENAO / DIARIO DE JUÁREZ
Los jóvenes indocumentados conocidos como dreamers serán parte de la discusión para evitar un cierre de Gobierno esta semana, aseguran observadores. Y es que los demócratas del Congreso exigirán que se les otorgue protección legal –la cual perdieron cuando el presidente Trump anunció que la Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA), terminaría en marzo–, para llegar a un acuerdo. “Si el Congreso no incluye una legislación que proteja a los dreamers este año, es muy poco probable que lo haga en absoluto”, declaró ayer la organización América's Voice, con sede en Washington, haciendo eco de la postura de algunos líderes demócratas en el Congreso.

SOÑADORES EN EU RECLAMAN DREAM ACT YA / VICTOR SANCHO / EL UNIVERSAL
Miles de jóvenes indocumentados y defensores de los derechos de los inmigrantes se manifestaron ayer a las puertas del Capitolio para reclamar que el Congreso agilice la aprobación de una ley que proteja de la deportación a los dreamers o soñadores, amenazados de expulsión tras la decisión del presidente Donald Trump de acabar con el programa DACA que les ampara. Los manifestantes entonaron los clásicos gritos de “Sí se puede”, “Sin papeles sin miedo”; y varias referencias a los congresistas, especialmente del bando republicano, exigiéndoles que “hagan su trabajo” y aprueben una Dream Act de inmediato y sin ligarla a ningún otro texto legislativo. Cerca de 200 fueron detenidos en las escaleras del Capitolio por desobediencia civil, entre ellos dos congresistas: los demócratas Luis Gutiérrez y Judy Chu.

QUE UN TUIT DE TRUMP NO CONDENE A LOS “DREAMERS” / EL FINANCIERO
Los legisladores demócratas Nancy Pelosi y Chuck Schumer difícilmente pueden sorprenderse de que Trump haya tuiteado algo intempestivo y mal informado. Y aunque es su derecho abandonar una reunión con el presidente a consecuencia del mensaje, ni ellos ni sus colegas republicanos deben permitir que el drama los distraiga de aprobar una ley que proteja a los “dreamers”. En medio están 800 mil inmigrantes indocumentados que llegaron a Estados Unidos cuando eran niños, fueron protegidos de la deportación y pudieron aplicar para permisos de trabajo en la administración de Obama. Una posible solución para evitar que los “dreamers” sean deportados se ha ligado a un acuerdo del gasto diseñado para evitar una parálisis del gobierno.

El presidente Donald Trump celebró este miércoles la decisión del Departamento de Justicia de presentar cargos federales contra José Inés García Zárate.

SESSIONS ORDENA ACELERAR CASOS DE INDOCUMENTADOS EN EU / ZÓCALO
El fiscal general de Estados Unidos, Jeff Sessions, ordenó este miércoles a todos los tribunales que aceleren la resolución de los casos de inmigrantes indocumentados, en un contexto de aumento de los arrestos de migrantes desde que asumió el presidente Donald Trump. Los tribunales que se ocupan de asuntos de inmigración tienen un atraso de unos 650 mil casos, afirmó Sessions. A pesar del mayor rigor en el cruce de fronteras y el nombramiento de 50 jueces suplementarios desde el inicio del año, "enfrentamos, no obstante, una firme corriente crítica en el sentido de que estamos abrumados y que el atraso es insuperable", dijo.

LOOKING FOR COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS? HERE'S SOME ADVICE FOR LATINO STUDENTS / SIERRA C. JACKSON / NBC NEWS
Elisa Flores, a Latina senior at Waukegan High School in Illinois, is among the millions of high school students scavenging the internet for potential scholarships as she plans for college. “I think that was the hardest part [of searching for scholarships], not having enough help or not having the right help,” Flores told NBC News. She also received advice from her older sister, who is already attending college. “My sister just told me to look up anything on the internet, anything around the lines of scholarships for Hispanics, or scholarships for women or scholarships for people that play an instrument, stuff like that” the first-generation college student explained. “Specific or broad things that I do that I could potentially get a scholarship for.”

LULAC PROTESTS LACK OF LATINO MANAGER CANDIDATES / MICHAEL KING / AUSTIN CHRONICLE
It didn't take long for the announcement of the semi-finalist candidates to become Austin city manager to generate some backlash. Among the six candidates (expected to be winnowed this week) were three white men, one white woman, and two African-Americans (woman and man), but no Latinos. (Former General Services Administration chief Denise Turner Roth – African-American – has since found a better job and withdrawn; Miami City Manager Daniel Alfonso was among those interviewed earlier by Council, but either withdrew or didn't make the cut.) In a press release last week, the executive board of the League of United Latin American Citizens (District 7) called the omission "unacceptable," and asked that Council "redo its selection process to have a fair, balanced, and equitable outcome."

'DO THE RIGHT THING': THOUSANDS RALLY IN D.C. FOR DREAM ACT TO PROTECT YOUNG IMMIGRANTS / PATRICIA GUADALUPE AND MARISSA ARMAS / NBC NEWS
About two thousand young immigrants and their supporters converged on the nation’s capital to rally Congress for legislation that would protect their ability to work and study in the U.S. without fear of deportation. "History will judge where you stood at this moment in time," said Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who spoke at the rally. "Do the right thing." At the event, more than two hundred demonstrators, including immigration community leaders and several members of Congress, including Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill. and Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif., staged a sit-in on the U.S. Capitol steps and in a civil disobedience act were arrested for refusing to move. Organizers said time is running out for these young immigrants.

THE DREAM ACT COULD BRING THE RULE OF LAW BACK TO IMMIGRATION POLICY / HIROSHI MOTOMURA / LOS ANGELES TIMES
There are compelling humanitarian and economic reasons to pass the bipartisan bill. The so-called Dreamers make real contributions to our society — 800,000 of them made use of DACA to further their educations and do essential work in our communities. Many have loved ones who are U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents. Dreamers are American in every sense of the word except for their immigration status. But another, equally compelling reason to support the Dream Act is often overlooked. With the Trump administration turning immigration enforcement into a vigilante system, the Dream Act can help bring the rule of law back to immigration law.

RISE IN U.S. IMMIGRANTS FROM EL SALVADOR, GUATEMALA AND HONDURAS OUTPACES GROWTH FROM ELSEWHERE / PEW RESEARCH CENTER
Lawful and unauthorized immigrants increase since recession. One metric – the number of new immigrants arriving in the U.S. each year – illustrates dramatically how immigration trends from Mexico and the three Central American nations, known collectively as the “Northern Triangle,” have diverged in recent years. According to U.S. Census Bureau data analyzed by Pew Research Center, about 115,000 new immigrants arrived from the Northern Triangle in 2014, double the 60,000 who entered the U.S. three years earlier. Meanwhile, the number of new arrivals from Mexico declined slightly from 175,000 in 2011 to 165,000 in 2014. Growing numbers of lawful as well as unauthorized immigrants from the Northern Triangle have made their way to the U.S. during the American economy’s slow recovery from the Great Recession (the recession began in December 2007 and officially ended in June 2009).

MARYLAND LAWMAKERS ARRESTED AT D.C. IMMIGRATION RALLY / RACHEL SIEGEL / PROVIDENCE JOURNAL
Nearly 200 protesters were arrested Wednesday on the steps of the U.S. Capitol after thousands gathered to demand legislation protecting young, undocumented immigrants whose work permits are being revoked by the Trump administration. Those arrested after refusing to disperse included at least two lawmakers from Montgomery County: County Council President Hans Riemer, D, and state Del. Ana Sol Gutiérrez, D-Montgomery. Coordinated by local and national immigrant rights groups, the protest was the latest effort to pressure U.S. lawmakers to find a way to replace Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the Obama-era program that allowed some 690,000 immigrants brought to this country as children to receive two-year renewal work permits and shielded them from deportation. The work permits will expire starting March 5.

INDIANA CITY SUED OVER 'WELCOMING CITY' ORDINANCE LIMITING IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT / STEPHANIE WANG AND FATIMA HUSSEIN / INDY STAR
The city of Gary is being sued over an ordinance that declares it a "welcoming city" for immigrants, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday by the anti-immigration group Immigration Reform Law Institute and conservative Terre Haute attorney Jim Bopp. The Gary ordinance limits local compliance with federal immigration enforcement. For example, it prohibits local law enforcement from assisting federal immigration agents with requests to detain people. That violates the Indiana law that bans "sanctuary cities," the lawsuit alleges, and calls for cooperation with federal immigration enforcement to the "full extent permitted by federal law." "This is just turning criminals loose in Gary," Bopp told IndyStar. "Who should want to do that? And the state of Indiana has made it perfectly clear that that's unlawful."

CHICAGO SETTLES SUIT WITH IMMIGRANT FALSELY ACCUSED OF GANG TIES / NEREIDA MORENO / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
The city of Chicago on Tuesday settled a civil rights case involving an ICE detainee who was arrested during a raid on his home after he was wrongfully identified as a gang member. Wilmer Catalan-Ramirez, 31, was seriously injured in a March 27 arrest after six U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents entered his Back of the Yards home without a warrant, according to court documents. Catalan-Ramirez, who lawyers say was never a gang member, was placed in the Chicago Police Department’s "over-inclusive" gang database, which effectively stripped him of any privacy protections under Chicago's sanctuary city ordinance. His attorneys filed a lawsuit in May alleging that ICE agents relied on false records to identify Catalan-Ramirez as a gang member when they unlawfully raided his home in March.

SEEN: COLORADO LATINO HALL OF FAME CELEBRATION / JOANNE DAVIDSON / THE DENVER POST
In what executive director Joelle Martinez said was going to be “a night of pure celebration,” the Latino Leadership Institute inducted five community leaders into the Colorado Latino Hall of Fame while awarding the 2017 Legacy honor to the late Dolores and Felipe Baca. The Bacas grew up in Northern New Mexico and were the first to settle in a picturesque valley along southeastern Colorado’s Purgatoire River that was surrounded by the Sangre de Cristo mountains. They would name it Trinidad. The living inductees were Florence Hernandez-Ramos (Arts, Entertainment, Media and Sports); former Interior Secretary Ken Salazar (Public Service); Annette Quintana (Business, Innovation, Science and Technology); Debra Bueno (Unsung Hero); and Ron Montoya (Community Service and Philanthropy).

MORNING SPIN: RAUNER PRIMARY CHALLENGER IVES TO MAKE IMMIGRATION LAW AN ISSUE / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Welcome to Clout Street: Morning Spin, our weekday feature to catch you up with what's going on in government and politics from Chicago to Springfield. Subscribe here. Topspin. Republican governor challenger Jeanne Ives is scheduled to hold a Thursday news conference to unveil legislation that would repeal an immigration law Gov. Bruce Rauner signed. The Trust Act was approved by lawmakers and the governor just months ago, so a bid to repeal it is all but dead on arrival. The law protects immigrants who are in the country illegally from being detained solely because of their immigration status. For Ives, Thursday's event outside the Cook County Jail will be a chance to highlight another difference she has with Rauner in their race for the Republican governor nomination.

CULTURA COLECTIVA TARGETS HISPANIC AUDIENCE WITH VIRAL POSTS, BRANDED CONTENT / BENJAMIN MULLIN / THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
For several years, some digital publishers have tried to engineer content that can go viral on social platforms. Now a Mexico-based company is trying that approach for the U.S. Hispanic audience. Cultura Colectiva is a 4-year-old company that publishes text and video designed to be shared on social media. The company is planning to open an office in New York and hire a 20-person staff dedicated to producing content and selling advertising for its English-language website and social media accounts. Some 80% of Cultura Colectiva’s revenue comes from branded content deals with marketers such as Adidas, Levi’s and Netflix. The company, like other Spanish-language media outfits, is capitalizing on the fact that many marketers have grown comfortable doing branded or “native” content on sites like BuzzFeed and Vice and want to do the same to reach Hispanic consumers.

MICROBREWERY, MEXICAN RESTAURANT SLOT INTO SOUTH NORWALK — WITH MORE TO COME / ALEXANDER SOULE / THE HOUR
For weeks, the brown wrapping paper has been conspicuous covering the windows of two South Norwalk establishments undergoing renovations at opposite ends of Washington Street. The first of two big reveals is on tap for Friday — with plenty more changes afoot for SoNo heading into the New Year. The brew pub formerly known as Hell or High Water — and before that known as Guvnor’s Brewing — will reopen Friday as Iron Brewing, with three partners taking their own crack at creating a microbrewery in South Norwalk where two others have failed. Iron Brewing is taking over space at 136 Washington St. briefly occupied by Hell or High Water, which opened in April under owner Mayub Murshed and brewmaster Anderson Sant’anna Delima, but which shuttered after just six months of operation. Guvnor’s Brewing had not fared much better, closing in December 2014 after less than two years in business.

L’EXIGENCE DE L’ANGLAIS FRUSTRE DES IMMIGRANTS FRANCOPHONES / ISABELLE PORTER / LE DEVOIR
Dans la capitale, Québec, comme à Montréal, des immigrants francophones peinent à se trouver du travail parce qu’ils ne parlent pas l’anglais. Le gouvernement, disent-ils, aurait dû les aviser avant leur venue de l’importance de la langue de Shakespeare sur le marché du travail au Québec. « Mon niveau d’anglais n’était pas très bon, c’est pourquoi j’avais fait le choix de venir à Québec », explique Fodé Moussa Camara. Originaire de la Côte d’Ivoire, il a fait des études en informatique en France avant de s’établir au Québec, où il a obtenu sa résidence permanente en 2013 à titre de travailleur qualifié en informatique.Or à son arrivée à Québec, il a vite déchanté. « J’ai vraiment eu de la misère. Souvent, on soulignait le fait que je ne parlais pas l’anglais ».

MÉMOIRE, HARKIS, IMMIGRATION, INVESTISSEMENTS : CE QU'A DIT MACRON À ALGER / AMAYAS ZMIRLI / LE POINT
Le président français Emmanuel Macron était très attendu sur nombre de questions souvent soulevées dans les relations entre la France et l'Algérie. À côté de la conférence de presse au cours de laquelle il a répondu sans détour aux interrogations des uns et des autres, il a accordé un entretien exclusif à notre confrère TSA (Tout sur l'Algérie), le site d'information le plus consulté d'Algérie. À la journaliste Hadjer Guenanfa qui l'a interrogé, il a d'abord indiqué qu'il assumait pleinement les propos qu'il avait tenus en février dernier, en tant que candidat, sur le colonialisme, qu'il avait qualifié de « crime contre l'humanité ». « J'ai dit une chose qui était forte et que j'assume pleinement.
