DOS TERCIOS EN EU RECHAZAN EL MURO DE TRUMP, REVELA SONDEO / MILENIO
Seis de cada 10 estadunidenses rechazan el plan del presidente Donald Trump de construir un muro en la frontera con México, y casi nueve de cada 10 favorecen legalizar a los jóvenes indocumentados conocidos como “dreamers”, reveló un sondeo. Un 63 por ciento de los adultos estadunidenses cree que el plan del muro fronterizo de Trump es una mala idea, y sólo 34 por ciento apoya su edificación, de acuerdo con una encuesta de The Washington Post y la cadena ABC.

"DREAMERS" SE APURAN A RENOVAR DACA ANTE OSCURO PANORAMA EN EU / EL UNIVERSAL
Los "dreamers" que califican para renovar su Acción Diferida (DACA) se apresuran ante la posibilidad de que el gobierno dé luz verde a la detención de los jóvenes que pierdan este amparo migratorio y el oscuro horizonte de las negociaciones sobre el tema en el Congreso y la Casa Blanca. Desde que el Servicio de Ciudadanía e Inmigración (USCIS, en inglés) anunciase el pasado día 13 que se reanudaba la aceptación de solicitudes para renovar DACA, las organizaciones comunitarias del país han registrado un gran número de llamadas de beneficiados que buscan ayuda para realizar el trámite.

EL HOGAR DE LOS 'DREAMERS', ESTÁ EN PELIGRO SIN EL DACA / PARIJA KAVILANZ / EXPANSION
Cuando Diego Corzo obtuvo el estatus de DACA hace seis años, una de las primeras cosas en las que pensó fue en comprar una casa. “Era muy importante para mí”, dijo Corzo, de 27 años, quien nunca ha salido de Estados Unidos desde que llegó de Perú a los 9 años. “Poseer mi propia casa me demostró que, a pesar de todas las dificultades contra los dreamers como yo, aún estoy persiguiendo el máximo sueño americano”, dijo.

JUSTICIA DE EU AMAGA CON OBLIGAR A CIUDADES SANTUARIO A ENTREGAR MIGRANTES / EL UNIVERSAL
El Departamento de Justicia de Estados Unidos incrementó el miércoles la presión sobre las llamadas ciudades santuario que piden fondos para la seguridad pública, al advertir a las autoridades estatales y municipales que podría obligarlas legalmente a demostrar que cooperan con las autoridades federales de inmigración. Una veintena de jurisdicciones recibieron cartas con amenazas de emitirles apercibimientos si no entregan documentos para demostrar que no están ocultando información sobre el estatus inmigratorio de gente presa.

TRUMP DEPORTA SÓLO A 45 MIL EN 4 ESTADOS; PRIMER AÑO DE GOBIERNO / EXCELSIOR
Durante el primer año de gobierno de Donald Trump fueron deportados alrededor de 45 mil mexicanos a cuatro de los principales estados expulsores de migrantes, pero los apoyos oficiales para facilitar su reinserción no han sido suficientes. Jalisco recibió a siete mil 471 repatriados, 30% menos que en 2016, informó Mariana Márquez Laureano, del Instituto Jalisciense para Migrantes.

TRUMP PUTS PATH TO CITIZENSHIP FOR SOME ‘DREAMERS’ ON THE TABLE IN IMMIGRATION DEAL / DAVID NAKAMURA / THE WASHINGTON POST
President Trump said for the first time Wednesday that he is open to a path to citizenship for some younger undocumented immigrants known as "dreamers" in an immigration deal being negotiated by Congress, a potential breakthrough in the stalled talks. In an impromptu discussion with reporters, Trump emphasized that his support of a citizenship path for about 690,000 immigrants would be contingent on securing $25 billion for a wall on the southwest border with Mexico and $5 billion for additional border upgrades. The president also is expected to continue his push to curb legal immigration as part of a deal. But his remarks signaled what could prove to be a major shift for a president who ran a campaign with a hard line on immigration and last week rejected a bipartisan Senate proposal that included citizenship.

TRUMP IMMIGRATION DIDN’T HAVE TO TEAR AMERICA APART / PETER COYAND, SAHIL KAPUR / BLOOMBERG
The standoff over immigration in the U.S. Congress that shut the government for three days looks strange to a world that sees the U.S. as a nation of immigrants fighting over immigration. “America was a model for immigration, but that image has collapsed,” says Hidenori Sakanaka, head of the Japan Immigration Policy Institute, which promotes more newcomers to insular Japan. Americans with a sense of history find it odd, too. That’s because the deep partisan split over immigration is actually quite new. Anti-immigration sentiment has waxed and waned over the centuries, to be sure. But as recently as 2006, Democratic and Republican voters were only 5 percentage points apart in their favorability toward immigrants, according to Pew Research Center.

DEBATE OVER IMMIGRANT PROTECTIONS MAY TURN UP HEAT ON FEINSTEIN’S RE-ELECTION EFFORTS / DAN WALTERS / THE FRESNO BEE
The state’s top political figures – U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein in particular – received a harsh reminder this week that what plays in liberal California may be a liability elsewhere. Most of Feinstein’s fellow Democratic senators caved in to Republicans on legislation to end a brief shutdown of the federal government after realizing that their holdout issue, protecting young undocumented immigrant “dreamers” from deportation, was hurting their chances in mid-term elections this year. As the Washington Post reported: “With the shutdown heading into its third day, they were feeling the heat and finding it hard to control the messaging war. Voters in Florida, Michigan,Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin were getting Republican robo-calls saying Democrats had ‘prioritized illegal immigrants over American citizens.’

CALIFORNIA TODAY: TWO IMMIGRATION ADS, ONE DARK, THE OTHER SUNNY / TIM ARANGO / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Last weekend, as the federal government was shutting down amid partisan squabbles over immigration, President Trump’s re-election campaign released an ad featuring an undocumented immigrant from Mexico accused of murdering two Sacramento police officers. Democrats, the ad stated, are “complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants.” On the same day, a group of California Republicans put out their own ad about immigration. It featured the sunny disposition of Ronald Reagan, and words he spoke form the Oval Office in 1989, as he prepared to leave office. In the address, President Reagan defined what he meant when described, as he often did, America as a “shining city.”

AMERICA’S UNDOCUMENTED FUTURE: AN ODYSSEY, A SHUTDOWN AND A STATUS QUO / JAYA PADMANABHAN / SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER
I’ve been reading Dan-El Padilla Peralta’s book, “Undocumented: A Dominican Boy’s Odyssey from a Homeless Shelter to the Ivy League.” I met Peralta at a literary conference in Boulder, Colo., a few months ago, and his story documenting his undocumented travails so captivated me that I immediately bought his book. I chose Mexico’s mountain-ringed Tepoztlan as the place where I would read Peralta’s memoir. I had an arsenal of a dozen Spanish words, and it seemed fitting, while in no way a comparison, that I would read of Peralta’s struggles as I navigated a foreign land. Peralta accompanied his parents legally to the United States when he was 4 years old. His mother was pregnant with his brother Yando at the time.

IMMIGRANT ACTIVISTS PROTEST AT SCHUMER'S HOME, CHANTING 'IF CHUCK WON'T LET US DREAM, WE WON'T LET HIM SLEEP' / FOX NEWS
About 75 immigrant activists protested this week outside U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer’s Brooklyn, N.Y., home to denounce the deal to end the government shutdown without protections for young immigrants. “If Chuck won’t let us dream, we won’t let him sleep,” some chanted. “No! Not one more deportation.” Senate Democrats -- led by Schumer -- angered liberal activists Monday by yielding on GOP demands to reopen the government without an immigration deal to protect from deportation younger immigrants known as "Dreamers." Tuesday's protest was organized by local groups including Make the Road New York. A spokesman for Schumer released the following statement:

GLUTEN-FREE TACOS? YAYA'S TURNS FOOD TRUCK INTO HEALTHY MEXICAN RESTAURANT / JENNIFER MCCLELLAN / THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC
The couple behind popular food truck Yaya’s Tacos are switching out their car keys for door keys. On Saturday, Jan. 27, Esteban and Lizz Garcia will celebrate the grand opening of their restaurant, Yaya’s Mexican Bar + Grill, near Litchfield and Waddell roads in Surprise. The name change means the restaurant will serve much more than tacos and have a full bar. What won’t change? The emphasis on traditional Mexican food favorites with a healthful twist remains. The Garcias will continue to serve tacos on their signature paleo tortillas. Their menu of fajitas, burritos, carne asada platters, soups and desserts will be gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan. Or not — it's up to customers.

SAN ANTONIO'S BEST BRISKET TACOS / LARRY OLMSTED / USA TODAY
The scene: San Antonio is famous for the quality of its Tex-Mex cuisine, and locals have strong opinions about their favorite destinations. When you ask around, it quickly becomes apparent that many locals’ favorite is Garcia’s Mexican Food. Located in a squat one-story cinder block building that is distinctively two-tone green with black wrought iron window grills, Garcia’s is a real neighborhood joint and an institution on the city’s West Side — it was established in 1962. Open only for breakfast and lunch, it is perennially crowded, often with a wait to be seated and a diner feel inside. There are lots of small synthetic-topped tables set close to one another, six revolving metal diner stools at a small counter looking into the kitchen, and paintings of Mexican vaqueros (cowboys) on the walls.

THE HUNT: STAPLE OF MEXICAN CUISINE SURPRISINGLY ADAPTABLE / KEVIN BROOKER / CALGARY HERALD
For a food that formed the nutritional bedrock for much of the western hemisphere over the past 4,000 years, maize is underappreciated. Certainly that is true in Canada, where we know that maize is a form of corn, but how it differs from our familiar yellow variety, and how we might enjoy serving it, is likely a mystery. In fact, we often eat maize without realizing it. Every time we enjoy a corn tortilla or snack on a bag of corn nuts, we are eating some version of usually white maize, known to Mexicans as mais blanco, cacahuazintle, or mais pozolero, and to those of us in El Norte as hominy. Unlike sweet corn, hominy would still be inedible after a mere 10 minutes in boiling water. Instead, its outsized, tough grains are usually dried on the cob, sometimes taking on hues of red and blue, before undergoing a unique process that made it the staff of life for civilizations like the Mayans and Aztecs.

RESTAURANT REVIEW: MEXICO CITY'S PUJOL REPRESENTS THE APEX OF MEXICAN CUISINE / MIA STAINSBY / VANCOUVER SUN
Like our famous geese, Canadians migrate south in winter to defrost. We recently hightailed it out of Vancouver just as the Arctic exhaled its cold nasty breath upon us and we dodged skidding cars as we headed for the airport. No orderly V-shaped pattern for us. Destination: Mexico City. There, we immediately visited Pujol, the top dog restaurant in the city, the fourth best in Latin America, and 20th on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. Chef and owner Enrique Olvera pioneered the new Mexican gastronomy movement, shining a bright light on a sophisticated cuisine with a storied history. I’m not always completely blown away by restaurants sporting Michelin stars or on the world’s 50 best lists. Sometimes, the techniques and artistry are amazing, but I’m left cold or unmoved by a stiff formality on the plate and in the room.
