DREAMERS, REHENES DE TRUMP Y POLÍTICOS / JUAN MIGUEL HERNÁNDEZ / EL SOL DE TIJUANA
Los “dreamers” se encuentran “secuestrados” por el gobierno norteamericano, aseguró el director y fundador de Ángeles de la Frontera, Enrique Morones Careaga. El activista señaló que los políticos norteamericanos no están viendo a los jóvenes como seres humanos, y los mantienen como rehenes mientras se decide si continúa el programa de Acción Diferida Para los llegados en la infancia (DACA, por sus siglas en inglés). “No se vale; no fue su decisión cruzar; los papás los cruzaron; todos son seres humanos. Es una situación increíble, muy triste, y tenemos que llamar la atención por todo lo que está pasando allá. No los están tomando en cuenta como seres humanos”, expresó.

CONGRESS WILL TRY AGAIN ON IMMIGRATION REFORM — BUT WILL THIS TIME BE DIFFERENT? / LISA MASCARO / LOS ANGELES TIMES
As Congress searches for a deal to protect so-called Dreamers from deportation, there are parallels to 2013, when immigration legislation won widespread support in the Senate only to be roundly ignored in the more conservative, Republican-led House. But for all the similarities to that undertaking, there are also stark differences this time around in the politics, players and public opinion, which bring a new dynamic as lawmakers once again try to tackle immigration. On Tuesday, Congress got to work on relief for the nearly 700,000 Dreamers, young immigrants who grew up in the United States after arriving illegally as children, and who now face possible detention and expulsion.

TRUMP IS A MOVING TARGET AS CONGRESS NEGOTIATES ON IMMIGRATION / TAL KOPAN / CNN
Washington (CNN) The Homeland Security secretary made the rounds Tuesday on Capitol Hill as she continues to press the agency's priorities in immigration talks -- but she's facing skepticism from senators about the administration's reliability on the issue. The conversations on the Hill come as the Department of Homeland Security is working on a new list of items it wants to see in an immigration deal, according to multiple sources familiar with the discussions in Congress and the administration. Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, who was one of a handful of red-state Democrats to meet with Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Tuesday, said she had told Nielsen plainly that without a promise from President Donald Trump, it was impossible to negotiate on immigration with her.

TRUMP’S BORDER WALL MAY FADE AS OBSTACLE IN IMMIGRATION DEBATE / SAHIL KAPUR / BLOOMBERG
The entrenched sides in the immigration debate consuming Washington are edging toward consensus on one crucial point: President Donald Trump’s border wall may not be all that big of an obstacle. After the collapse of negotiations on immigration that led to a three-day shutdown of the government, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that his offer on funding for a border barrier was “off the table.” Trump has insisted there can be no deal without a wall, which he promised during his campaign would be “big, beautiful” and paid for by Mexico. Below the surface, the differences are less about substance and more about message.

BORDER WALL ‘OFF THE TABLE,’ SCHUMER SAYS, AS IMMIGRATION PROGRESS UNRAVELS / SHERYL GAY STOLBERG AND MAGGIE HABERMAN / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Senate negotiators found themselves back at Square 1 on immigration on Tuesday, as the Senate Democratic leader withdrew the biggest gesture he had made to strike a deal: an offer to fully fund President Trump’s proposed wall at the Mexican border. “The wall offer’s off the table,” the leader, Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, told reporters at the Capitol a day after senators overcame an impasse to end a three-day government shutdown. Mr. Schumer’s decision to renege, made on Sunday but revealed publicly on Tuesday, marked another turn in the fluid debate over how to shield from deportation hundreds of thousands of young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. As part of a deal to end the shutdown, Senator Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, promised what he called a “fair and open” immigration debate on the Senate floor.

IN ABOUT-FACE, ROCKWALL SHERIFF LEADS COUNTY INTO IMMIGRANT DETENTION DEAL WITH FEDS / RAY LESZCYNSKI / THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS
Any kind of political fence that Rockwall County Sheriff Harold Eavenson might have been riding regarding an agreement with federal immigration authorities vanished Tuesday morning when county commissioners voted unanimously to authorize a deal giving local law enforcement officials the power to detain possible undocumented immigrants at the county jail. "With this, we will be able to identify every single person that comes through the jail," Norman Parish, deputy director of U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said of the 287(g) agreement. Taking the podium after nearly two hours of public testimony, Parrish said that Rockwall, Texas' smallest county in size, had created the biggest stir among those that had entered the partnership. Along with the passionate community discussion, he said, had come some misunderstandings.

LEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE AVOIDING HEALTH CARE FEARING IT COULD LEAD TO DEPORTED RELATIVES / KELLI KENNEDY / TIME
The number of legal immigrants from Latin American nations who access public health services and enroll in federally subsidized insurance plans has dipped substantially since President Donald Trump took office, many of them fearing their information could be used to identify and deport relatives living in the U.S. irreguraly, according to health advocates across the country. Trump based his campaign on promises to stop irregular immigration and deport any immigrants in the country irreguraly, but many legal residents and U.S. citizens are losing their health care as a result, advocates say. After Trump became president a year ago, “every single day families canceled” their Medicaid plans and “people really didn’t access any of our programs,” said Daniel Bouton, a director at the Community Council, a Dallas nonprofit that specializes in health care enrollment for low-income families.

IS A FAIR IMMIGRATION COMPROMISE POSSIBLE OUT OF FAILED SCHUMER SHUTDOWN? / JOHN KASS / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Is there a fair, reasonable way to deal with immigration without shutting down the government as the Democrats did just recently? Yes. A way to save the “Dreamers” and build President Donald Trump’s wall to protect the borders, and lower the anxiety of millions of Dreamer parents, those immigrants who crossed over irreguraly for a better life in America. A way for Americans to accept immigration policy as fair, not just something jammed down their throats by politicians. We’d have to take the tribal politics out of it, and we probably should stop weaponizing the immigrants for future elections. But it can be done. Yet not until we admit what went terribly wrong with the failed Schumer shutdown, when Democrats held the American government hostage to their version of immigration politics and then caved after Democratic senators seeking re-election in 2018 realized voters wouldn’t stand for it.

VIRGINIA’S LARGEST COUNTY TO SCALE BACK IMMIGRANT DETENTION / THE WASHINGTON TIMES
Virginia’s most populous county will no longer automatically hold inmates past their release date at the request of federal immigration officials. Fairfax County’s elected sheriff, Stacey Kincaid, announced Tuesday she is ending an agreement with Immigration and Customs Enforcement under which the county jail would continue to hold inmates at the request of ICE. Beginning May 23, Kincaid said inmates will only be detained past their release date if a court has issued a criminal detainer. Kincaid, a Democrat, said the county will still comply with all federal obligations, but no longer wants to participate in an agreement that requires it to expend resources beyond its obligations.

WEST AURORA SCHOOL BOARD ASKED TO TAKE 'CLEAR ACTION' ON IMMIGRANT SAFE ZONE / LINDA GIRARDI / CHICAGO TRIBUNE
The West Aurora School Board Monday night was urged to adopt a "safe school zone" resolution to show that its schools are a safe place for immigrant students and their families. "I know the circle of kids and what they are going through. You will never really know how scared they are about having to leave the country," Joselyn Salas, a student at West Aurora High School, said. She grew up in fear of her parents being deported, she said, but thankfully they are now documented. "They came here to give me a second chance," she said. "...I have seen things in Mexico kids shouldn't see. Luckily my parents did get their papers." Others are not so lucky, she told the School Board. Joselyn said her friends feel anxiety each day because they are undocumented and fear they could be detained.

UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT TAKES SANCTUARY IN CHURCH TO STOP DEPORTATION, CARE FOR WIFE / GENEVA SANDS / ABC NEWS
Flora Rranxburgaj knows what will happen if her husband, Ded, who is a fugitive from immigration authorities, gets deported. “My life is done,” said Flora Rranxburgaj, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 11 years ago. That's why the family has taken sanctuary in a Detroit church. Ded Rranxburgaj, who emigrated from Albania 17 years ago to provide a "better life" for his family, has to bathe and feed his wife because of her disability. “My wife is very sick and I want my family all together,” said Ded Rranxburgaj. “I have to stay in the church, I have no choice.” Flora, Ded, and their two sons moved into the Central United Methodist Church Detroit a week ago to avoid authorities. Historically, some churches have offered sanctuary to undocumented immigrants facing deportation.

THE LOSS OF A SON FUELED A FATHER'S FIGHT AGAINST IRREGULAR IMMIGRATION. AND THERE'S LITTLE ROOM FOR DEBATE / STEVE LOPEZ / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Don Rosenberg and I have talked about illegal immigration on the phone and exchanged emails over the years, but we had never met, until Monday. The federal government shutdown last weekend, and temporary reopening, are about a lot of things, but differing views on immigration are at the core of the impasse. Rosenberg and I come at the topic from different directions, too, and I was curious about whether we could find the common ground that eludes Washington. So I drove to Rosenberg's home in Westlake Village and we spent three hours talking it over. I'd like to tell you we brokered a deal, sent it to Washington for approval by both sides, and the republic can now move forward. But as goes the nation, so went the immigration summit in Westlake Village.

MA VISION SUR L’IMMIGRATION / LOUISE DESCHÂTELETS / LE JOURNAL DE MONTREAL
Comme tous les autres pays industrialisés, le Québec n’est pas viable sans l’immigration. Nous sommes actuellement 5 travailleurs pour un retraité au Québec. Il y a 30 ans nous étions 10, et en 2030 nous serons deux. Des commerces ferment, faute de travailleurs. Selon la une d’une récente parution du Journal, il manquerait au Québec huit mille travailleurs. Mais il ne manque cependant pas de Québécois qui craignent l’arrivée des travailleurs immigrants. Les immigrants sont indispensables à notre économie et à notre démographie. Tout commentaire négatif concernant les travailleurs étrangers, qui en partie nous font vivre, est de trop. Les mauvais immigrants, la police et les tribunaux s’en occupent. Attaquons-nous à bien accueillir les autres.

MACRON EN RUPTURE AVEC LES INTELLECTUELS SUR LA QUESTION DE L'IMMIGRATION / PAULINE THÉVENIAUD / LE PARISIEN
La politique migratoire de Macron soulève les colères. Les tribunes se suivent et les mots claquent. Mardi soir, le ministre de l'Intérieur, Gérard Collomb, a fait « la pédagogie » du projet de loi Asile et Immigration, devant les députés de la majorité venus très nombreux l'écouter à l'Assemblée. Et ce, au lendemain de la lettre ouverte écrite par Yann Moix dans « Libération » qui interpellait vivement Emmanuel Macron sur ce sujet. L'écrivain, qui prépare un documentaire sur Calais, dénonce des violences policières contre les migrants. « Propos violents », « surenchère », réplique-t-on au sommet de l'Etat, où l'on voit là l'oeuvre d'un « polémiste », tout en promettant la « fermeté » si « dérives » il y a.
