SE TERGIVERSÓ LO QUE DIJE SOBRE MIGRACIÓN, ASEGURA TRUMP / LA JORNADA
El presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, aseguró este lunes en un tuit que el senador demócrata Dick Durbin “tergiversó por completo” lo que se dijo en una reunión de la Casa Blanca sobre inmigración el pasado jueves, y que estaba perjudicando los esfuerzos para llegar a un acuerdo para proteger a los dreamers. “¡No se pueden hacer tratos cuando no hay confianza! Durbin destruyó el DACA (Programa de Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia) y está perjudicando a nuestras fuerzas armadas”, agregó el mandatario, justo el día en que se conmemora el natalicio de Martin Luther King, cuyos hijos censuraron las declaraciones del presidente.

NO ES PRIORIDAD DEPORTAR A 'DREAMERS': SECRETARIA DE SEGURIDAD DE EU / MILENIO
Deportar a los dreamers no será una prioridad federal, incluso si los legisladores no aprueban un programa para protegerlos, dijo la jefa del Departamento de Seguridad Interior, Kirstjen Nielsen. En una entrevista con CBS News antes de una audiencia ante el Congreso, Kirstjen Nielsen dijo que mientras los llamados dreamers estén registrados ante las autoridades federales no será una prioridad su deportación, pese a que el presidente Donald Trump manifestó que cancelaría el programa Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA, por su sigla en inglés). "No será una prioridad para el Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas", dijo. "Si usted es un DACA que cumple con su registro, lo que significa que no ha cometido un crimen y está registrado, no será una prioridad para el servicio si el programa termina", añadió.

URGEN A DREAMERS A RENOVAR PERMISOS / JULIANA HENAO / EL DIARIO DE EL PASO
Organizaciones locales preparan jornadas de asesoría legal a partir de esta semana para que los jóvenes indocumentados conocidos como ‘dreamers’ puedan renovar sus permisos del programa de Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA). Esto, luego de que la semana pasada un juez federal en San Francisco, California, bloqueara la cancelación de DACA que anunció en septiembre el presidente Donald Trump. La Oficina de Servicios de Inmigración y Ciudadanía (USCIS) anunció el sábado que acatará la orden y comenzará nuevamente a tramitar la renovación de permisos para los “dreamers”. Estos permisos suspenden la deportación por dos años y otorgan permisos de trabajo a quienes fueron traídos al país antes de cumplir los 16 años, y cumplen otros requisitos.

“ACOSO PROVIENE EN SU MAYORÍA DE INMIGRANTES” / EL UNIVERSAL
Mientras en Estados Unidos sigue la polémica por los supuestos dichos racistas del presidente Donald Trump, en Europa políticos de la derecha realizaron comentarios contra los inmigrantes. En Italia, Attilio Fontana, candidato en las elecciones regionales por el partido Liga, formación aliada del ex premier Silvio Berlusconi, dijo que la “raza blanca” está en peligro de extinción si prosigue la inmigración en masa. “Esto no es un tema de ser xenófobo o racista, sino de ser racional: no podemos [acogerlos a todos] porque no cabemos”, dijo Fontana. “Así que tenemos que tomar decisiones, tenemos que elegir entre si sigue o se borra nuestra etnicidad, nuestra raza blanca o nuestra sociedad”.

THE BOTTOMLESS VULGARITY OF TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION POLITICS / ISHAAN THAROOR / WASHINGTON POST
It was a perfect sign of the times that the annual long American weekend spent commemorating the life and struggle of Martin Luther King Jr. was consumed by President Trump's purported racism. As you are doubtless aware, in a Thursday meeting with lawmakers on immigration policy, Trump allegedly dubbed Haiti, El Salvador and several African nations “shithole countries.” The remarks were apparently made while Trump was reacting with frustration to existing protections for a number of immigrants from countries affected by war and natural disaster. Instead, Trump urged for more immigrants from nations such as Norway — that is, white ones, as the implication seemed to be.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS DEMOCRATIC SENATOR DICK DURBIN ‘MISREPRESENTED’ HIS REMARKS ON IMMIGRATION / TIME
President Donald Trump turned his Twitter torment Monday on the Democrat in the room where immigration talks with lawmakers took a famously coarse turn, saying Sen. Dick Durbin misrepresented what he had said about African nations and Haiti and, in the process, undermined the trust needed to make a deal. On a day of remembrance for Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Trump spent time at his golf course with no public events, bypassing the acts of service that his predecessor staged in honor of the civil rights leader. Instead Trump dedicated his weekly address to King’s memory, saying King’s dream and America’s are the same: “a world where people are judged by who they are, not how they look or where they come from.”

WHY TRUMP VOTERS NEED THE IMMIGRANTS THEY WANT TO TURN AWAY / RONALD BROWNSTEIN / CNN
The irony in President Donald Trump's hostility to immigration, expressed again in reports of his vulgar comments about Africa and Haiti last week, is that in appealing to the racial and cultural resentments of his political base he is directly threatening their economic interests. The equation is unmistakable: as America ages, the older and blue-collar whites at the core of Trump's electoral coalition in 2016 need more working-age immigrants to pay the taxes that fund Social Security and Medicare. Without robust immigration, each American worker will need to support substantially more retirees in the future than workers do today. And that will greatly increase the pressure for either unsustainable tax increases or biting benefit reductions in the federal retirement programs that the older and blue-collar whites central to Trump's support rely upon so heavily.

FORMER OBAMA STAFFER'S VIRAL TWEET A MESSAGE TO TRUMP ON IMMIGRATION / MADELINE HOLCOMBE / CNN
Former White House staffer Gary Lee's very first tweet went viral amid the fallout over President Donald Trump making disparaging comments about immigration from African countries and Haiti. Over the weekend, the son of Korean immigrants tweeted a picture with his then boss, President Barack Obama, welcoming him into the Oval Office with his arms outstretched. Former White House photographer Pete Souza captured the moment. Lee spoke to Don Lemon on "CNN Tonight" on Monday about the contrast between Trump and Obama. Lee said that while he found Trump's comments around immigration upsetting, he believed Obama taught his staff "we could celebrate our diversities and that made us so much stronger."

INSIDE THE TENSE, PROFANE WHITE HOUSE MEETING ON IMMIGRATION / JOSH DAWSEY, ROBERT COSTA AND ASHLEY PARKER / WASHINGTON POST
When President Trump spoke by phone with Sen. Richard J. Durbin around 10:15 a.m. last Thursday, he expressed pleasure with Durbin’s outline of a bipartisan immigration pact and praised the high-ranking Illinois Democrat’s efforts, according to White House officials and congressional aides. The president then asked if Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), his onetime foe turned ally, was on board, which Durbin affirmed. Trump invited the lawmakers to visit with him at noon, the people familiar with the call said. But when they arrived at the Oval Office, the two senators were surprised to find that Trump was far from ready to finalize the agreement. He was “fired up” and surrounded by hard-line conservatives such as Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who seemed confident that the president was now aligned with them, according to one person with knowledge of the meeting.

DEMOCRATS ARE LETTING REPUBLICANS FUNDAMENTALLY REFRAME THE IMMIGRATION DEBATE / GREGORY KRIEG / CNN
When Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin first emerged from that now-infamous White House immigration meeting last week, his bipartisan bill cut down on sight by President Donald Trump, he conceded the obvious: Democrats were, at last, on the ropes. Crafted by the Senate's "Gang of Six," the agreement had been touted as a kind of common-sense compromise. "We have been working for four months," its authors wrote in a statement, "and have reached an agreement in principle that addresses border security, the diversity visa lottery, chain migration/family reunification, and the Dream Act -- the areas outlined by the President." "I don't know what happens next," Durbin said of the negotiations and, more broadly it seemed, the future of this mushrooming immigration debate.

GOP LEADERS STRUGGLE TO AVERT SHUTDOWN AFTER IMMIGRATION BLOW-UP / LAURA LITVAN, LAURA LITVANAND & ANNA EDGERTON / BLOOMBERG
Republican congressional leaders are struggling to separate the immigration blow-up set off by President Donald Trump from a funding bill to avert a U.S. government shutdown at the end of this week. Democrats say the burden is on Trump to help break the stalemate after he rejected a bipartisan proposal to shield young, undocumented immigrants from deportation and ignited outrage by reportedly disparaging Haiti and African nations as “shithole countries.” Democrats want to attach such an immigration measure to the must-pass spending bill, an idea House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reject. “No, we’re not going to do that," Ryan said Friday during an event in his home state of Wisconsin. "People are attaching these as far as leverage is concerned," but Republican leaders won’t go along, he said.

RESIDENTS OF ‘IMMIGRANT CITY’ STEP UP TO VOLUNTEER ON MLK DAY / LAURA KRANTZ / BOSTON GLOBE
More than 700 people braved snow and freezing temperatures Monday to volunteer in a local high school cafeteria, cutting, painting, and hammering in projects to help local immigrants. For some, the day had an extra layer of meaning. The volunteer event is held annually on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, but this year it came amid President Trump’s relentless onslaughts of anti-immigrant rhetoric that have divided the country since he took office a year ago. Many who gathered in the cafeteria of Boston Latin School were immigrants themselves, or children of immigrants. “If I’m doing this, it feels like I’m benefiting my parents, too,” said Bryan Jimenez, 22, as he cut out flashcards that will help people study for the US citizenship test.

WORKPLACE RAIDS SIGNAL SHIFTING TACTICS IN IMMIGRATION FIGHT / NATALIE KITROEFF / THE NEW YORK TIMES
The Trump administration is taking its campaign against illegal immigration to the workplace. The raids by federal agents on dozens of 7-Eleven convenience stores last week were the administration’s first big show of force meant to convey the consequences of employing undocumented people. “We are taking work-site enforcement very hard,” said Thomas D. Homan, the director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, in a speech in October. “Not only are we going to prosecute the employers who knowingly hire the illegal aliens, we are going to detain and remove the illegal alien workers.” When agents raid workplaces, they often demand to see employees’ immigration documents and make arrests.

ELECTRIC BIKES CAN HELP IMMIGRANT WORKERS. BUT IN NEW YORK, THEY'RE BANNED / CHRIS FUCHS / NBC NEWS
Any new delivery worker will tell you his first order of business is to save for the one thing that can make life easier — an electric bike. That’s what Liu Li Qiang did after arriving in New York City from Liaoning, China, around seven years ago. He said it could take up to two months to put away the funds needed to buy a motorized bike, some costing $1,500 or more. “Delivery men definitely regard electric bikes as a tool for survival,” the 45-year-old Liu said, speaking in Mandarin. E-bikes have indeed been a boon to a delivery workforce in New York City that, according to advocates, is aging, though definitive data in unavailable.

PREGNANT IMMIGRANT TEEN WHO SUED OVER ABORTION LEAVES FEDERAL CUSTODY / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
A pregnant immigrant teenager who told a judge that she was being prevented from having an abortion while in federal custody has been released, giving her the ability to obtain the procedure. The Trump administration said in a court filing Sunday that the 17-year-old had been released to a "sponsor," an adult who is usually a family member. The teen, who hasn't been identified by name, was the fourth pregnant immigrant teenager represented by the ACLU to go to court over the Department of Health and Human Services' policy of refusing to facilitate abortions for minors in its custody. The ACLU called her an "unaccompanied minor," suggesting she was detained while trying to enter the U.S. A judge previously sided with the other teens represented by the ACLU.

IMMIGRANT FROM MEXICO, 2 SISTERS AMONG MUDSLIDE VICTIMS / JOHN ROGERS AND JULIE WATSON  / THE WASHINGTON POST
An immigrant from Mexico and a pair of sisters were among the 20 people killed in devastating mudslides that brought tragedy and sorrow to the idyllic coastal community of Montecito, California. Other victims included a 30-year-old man and his 6-year-old son and father-in-law; a doctor and his daughter who died in the arms of her brother, a young mother asleep with her 3-year-old daughter as her 10-year-old nephew slumbered nearby; and a woman and her 89-year-old husband of more than 50 years who celebrated his birthday the day before the disaster. Here are their stories and those of others in the community where victims ranged from captains of industry to the people who manicure their lawns:

NEW YORK IMMIGRANT ACTIVIST DETAINED BY ICE IN MIAMI MIGHT BE DEPORTED TODAY / JERRY IANNELLI / MIAMI NEW TIMES
Hundreds of people demonstrated in Manhattan's Washington Square Park yesterday to protest the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention of two of the city's most prominent immigrant activists: Ravi Ragbir and Jean Montrevil. The two run the city's New Sanctuary Coalition, a group that helps families fight deportation. Immigrant advocates say ICE is retaliating against the two men for speaking out against the federal government. The day Ragbir was detained, 18 protesters were arrested for civil disobedience, including New York City Council Members Ydanis Rodriguez and Jumaane Williams.

DETROIT MAN DEPORTED TO MEXICO AFTER 30 YEARS IN US / SASHA ZIENTS / CNN
Jorge Garcia, a 39-year-old landscaper and father of two who has lived in the United States for 30 years, said a painful goodbye to his family at the Detroit Metro Airport early Monday morning. Garcia was deported, after having lived in the United States since he was a child, when his family came as undocumented immigrants from Mexico. Garcia had been facing an order of removal since 2009, but had received extensions under the Obama administration. Because of the Trump administration's crackdown on undocumented immigrants, Garcia was ordered to return to Mexico in November. The Garcia family said they pleaded with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to extend his time in the hopes that a new Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) law -- one without an age limit -- would be put in place to make him eligible.

AFTER 30 YEARS IN U.S., MICHIGAN DAD DEPORTED TO MEXICO / NIRAJ WARIKOO / THE DETROIT FREE PRESS
His arms wrapped around his wife and two teenage children, Jorge Garcia's eyes welled up Monday morning as he looked into their eyes one last time near the entrance to the airport security gate at Detroit Metro Airport. His wife, Cindy Garcia, cried out while his daughter, Soleil, 15, sobbed into Garcia's shoulder as they hugged. Two U.S. immigration agents kept a close watch nearby. After 30 years of living in the U.S, Garcia, a 39-year-old Lincoln Park landscaper, was deported on the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday from metro Detroit to Mexico, a move supporters say was another example of immigrants being unfairly targeted under the Trump administration.

BREXIT: EU 'TIGHTENS TRANSITION GUIDELINES' ON IMMIGRATION, TRADE AND FISHING / THE BBC
The UK's freedom to determine its own rules on immigration, trade and fishing in a transition period after Brexit may be further restricted, according to revised EU guidelines on a transition. Draft EU documents would see full freedom of movement extended until the start of 2021. The UK would also need "authorisation" to stick with existing EU trade deals. The BBC's Adam Fleming said the guidelines appeared to be aiming for a "business as usual" transition period". The UK is scheduled to leave the EU on 29 March 2019 but to minimise the disruption to people and businesses the idea is to smooth the way to post-Brexit relations over 18 months to two years - which is referred to as a transitional or implementation period.

CONSULAT DE SYRIE À MONTRÉAL: CONSUL ET CONSULTANT EN IMMIGRATION / PHILIPPE TEISCEIRA-LESSARD / LA PRESSE
Presque deux ans après sa fermeture, le consulat de Syrie à Montréal va rouvrir... dans le bureau d'un consultant en immigration. La Presse a appris que les réfugiés syriens qui veulent recevoir des services de leur consul devront se présenter au bureau du consultant en immigration Raed Mahko, qui vient d'être nommé représentant du régime al-Assad. La situation soulève des craintes de conflit d'intérêts de la part de la Table de concertation qui coordonne l'intégration des réfugiés, ainsi que du côté des avocats en droit de l'immigration. Dans les dernières années, il a lui-même eu plusieurs clients syriens, selon une recherche dans une banque de données juridique.

IMMIGRATION: ARRIVÉES ET RENVOIS EN HAUSSE EN 2017/ PAR MARYLINE BAUMARD / LE MONDE
En 2017, la France a délivré 13,7 % de nouveaux titres de séjours de plus qu’en 2016. Quelque 262 000 étrangers en ont obtenu un premier. Rendues publiques par le ministère de l’intérieur mardi 16 janvier, les données 2017 sur l’immigration risquent d’alimenter la polémique sur ce sujet difficile à manier en finesse. D’autant qu’ils sont annoncés le jour même où le chef de l’Etat fait sa première sortie sur le thème, et alors que la future loi asile et immigration fait débat. Les entrées 2017 se sont d’abord faites pour motif familial : 91 070 étrangers ont obtenu un premier titre de séjour (+ 2,2 %), majoritairement parce qu’ils ont épousé un ressortissant français ou fait venir des membres de leur famille. Le deuxième groupe de nouveaux venus, lui, est composé des étudiants qui ont été 88 095 à commencer un cursus en France (+ 19,6 %).

ASILE-IMMIGRATION: PHILIPPE "ASSUME" DEVANT LES DÉPUTÉS LREM ET CRITIQUE LES "POSTURES" / LE POINT
Edouard Philippe "assume" la réforme de l'asile et immigration et déplore des "postures" des détracteurs, a-t-il déclaré mardi devant les députés LREM, insistant sur la nécessité cette année d'"expliquer" diverses mesures "impopulaires". Au deuxième et dernier jour du séminaire du groupe majoritaire, le Premier ministre a insisté, selon des propos rapportés, sur le fait que "cette année, on va aller devant des mesures impopulaires qu'il va falloir expliquer", évoquant l'abaissement à 80 km/h de la limitation de vitesse sur les routes secondaires ou le projet de loi sur l'asile et l'immigration. Il a prévenu que ce sera "une année 2018 chargée avec des textes importants et complexes. Nous prônons une approche aussi déterminée que nuancée. Dépassez les postures. Soyons dans l'action.
