TRUMP LLAMA A LA UNIDAD CON DISCURSO DIVISIVO / VICTOR SANCHO / EL UNIVERSAL
En su primer discurso sobre el estado de la Unión como presidente, Donald Trump hizo un llamado a la unidad de Estados Unidos, especialmente en el tema más candente de la política actual: la inmigración. Pero sus palabras no coincidieron con el tono de su retórica, que se mantuvo divisiva y criminalizadora con los inmigrantes, alejando una vez más la opción de reforma del sistema migratorio y todavía sin vistas a solución para los dreamers. Trump dijo tener la “mano abierta para trabajar con ambos partidos” para solucionar el problema, pero cerró el puño para vincular a los migrantes —especialmente latinoamericanos— con las bandas criminales.

DEFINIR YA “DREAMERS” Y MURO, URGE TRUMP / MILENIO
El presidente estadunidense Donald Trump defendió su plan para dar la ciudadanía a 1.8 millones de dreamers a cambio de dinero para el muro, del fin de la migración en cadena y la lotería de visas, y llamó a demócratas y republicanos a alcanzar un acuerdo para aprobar una reforma migratoria y crear un “sistema seguro, moderno y legal”. “Durante más de 30 años, Washington ha intentado y fallado en resolver este problema. Este Congreso puede ser el que finalmente haga que ocurra… así que trabajemos juntos, dejemos a un lado la política y hagamos el trabajo”, dijo.

TRUMP’S PLANS FOR IMMIGRATION, INFRASTRUCTURE MEET SWIFT RESISTANCE IN CONGRESS / ROBERT COSTA / THE WASHINGTON POST
President Trump’s pledge in his State of the Union address Tuesday night to “extend an open hand” to both parties in pursuit of an ambitious policy agenda rammed quickly Wednesday into the reality of a largely gridlocked Congress — and a deeply polarized Washington. Trump’s call for a massive infrastructure bill to fund new bridges, roads and other projects nationwide was shelved, at least for now, as lawmakers prepared to return to disputes over spending that have gripped the Capitol for weeks. Democrats, most of whom sat stone-faced in the House chamber during Trump’s address, blasted the president for not calling out Russia for its interference in the 2016 presidential campaign and predicted that his scripted appeal for unity could not make up for a year’s worth of divisive behavior.

HOUSE GOP SKEPTICAL OF TRUMP’S FRAMEWORK ON IMMIGRATION — WHILE SOME DEMOCRATS VENT TO SCHUMER / ERICA WERNER AND ED O'KEEFE / THE WASHINGTON POST
House Republicans voiced skepticism and outright opposition Tuesday to President Trump’s immigration plan, a warning sign of the tough path ahead for any deal regarding the nation’s young undocumented immigrants. The concerns came from a range of lawmakers, not just immigration hard-liners, just hours before Trump’s State of the Union address, when he is expected to discuss the issue before a prime-time television audience of millions. In a sign the issue is roiling both parties, members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus — comprised entirely of Democrats — complained directly to Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) Tuesday about his one-on-one talks with Trump over the price of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

LATINOS SLAM TRUMP AS DIVISIVE HOURS BEFORE THEY BRING ‘DREAMERS’ TO THE STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH / BILL LAMBRECHT / SAN ANTONIO ESPRESS-NEWS
More than two-dozen “Dreamers” were on hand as guests in the House chamber Tuesday evening to remind President Donald Trump of unfinished business as activists gathered to set strategy for the midterm elections. Trump’s demand for immigration curbs likely will be a central issue in November, evidenced by a political summit of Latino activists and election specialists in Washington on the day of Trump’s State of the Union address. “This is a hostile administration that is hell-bent on attacking our community,” said Cristobal Alex, president of Latino Victory Fund, which sponsored the gathering. U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-San Antonio, and his twin brother, Julián Castro, a former San Antonio mayor and housing secretary in the Obama administration, were among those at the gathering.

JUDGE REBUKES TRUMP'S ‘VICIOUS’ ANTI-IMMIGRANT STATEMENTS / PATRICIA HURTADO / BLOOMBERG
President Donald Trump received another stinging rebuke from a federal judge over his statements and tweets about immigrants. U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis in Brooklyn, New York, on Tuesday questioned whether statements during the presidential campaign -- when Trump referred to many Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals -- and other comments, influenced an administration decision to end a program protecting children of undocumented immigrants from deportation. "It’s not ordinary,” Garaufis said. “It’s extreme, it’s recurring, it’s vicious, it’s not what we see from our leaders." "How do I take into account these statements that are so egregious and unfair by the person who sits in the Oval Office?” the judge asked. “I don’t accept the premise that it’s something we can ignore."

CHAIN MIGRATION, BORDER WALLS AND THE VISA LOTTERY SYSTEM: FACT CHECKING TRUMP'S IMMIGRATION REFORM CLAIMS / NICOLE GOODKIND / NEWSWEEK
President Donald Trump outlined the four pillars of his immigration plan during Tuesday night’s State of the Union, but many of his statements were exaggerated or incorrect. “In recent months, my administration has met extensively with both Democrats and Republicans to craft a bipartisan approach to immigration reform,” he said. “Based on these discussions, we presented the Congress with a detailed proposal that should be supported by both parties as a fair compromise.” On border security, the president said that we must build “a wall on the southern border,” between the U.S. and Mexico. But the majority of Americans disagree with the president. Sixty-two percent oppose a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and 43 percent say that a wall would not have much impact on illegal immigration.

IMMIGRATION FIGHT SHIFTS FROM TRUMP’S WALL TO FAMILY GREEN CARDS / SAHIL KAPUR / BLOOMBERG
President Donald Trump’s wall is no longer the biggest divide between Democrats and Republicans on immigration. The potential deal-breaker may be the status of mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters of immigrants. Trump and Republican hard-liners in Congress are demanding that any agreement resolving the legal status of undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children must end the ability of citizens to sponsor siblings, parents or adult children for a green card, which confers permanent residency and all but assures citizenship over time. In his first State of the Union address, Trump on Tuesday gave only scant mention to the wall but warned of the danger posed by criminals among undocumented immigrants and those who entered the U.S. through a visa lottery system and family sponsorships.

NHS CHIEFS URGED TO STOP GIVING PATIENT DATA TO IMMIGRATION OFFICIALS / THE GUARDIAN
NHS chiefs have been asked to immediately suspend handing over confidential patient data to the Home Office to track down potential immigration offenders as part of its “hostile environment measures”. Dr Sarah Wollaston, the chair of the House of Commons health select committee, has written to NHS Digital calling for an immediate halt to the handing over of confidential details of more than 8,000 patients a year. The MPs say the situation is unacceptable and they have serious concerns about the way the NHS has approached its duty to respect and promote confidentiality. A memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the Home Office and NHS Digital highlighted by the Guardian last year requires non-clinical details of patients, including their last known address, date of birth, details of their GP and date registered with a doctor, to be handed to immigration officials to help trace potential offenders.

IN IMMIGRATION DEBATE, WHAT CONSTITUTES 'MERIT'? / FRANCINE KIEFER, HENRY GASS / CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR
When President Trump talks about immigration in his first State of The Union speech tonight, people are likely to hear him use one phrase in particular: “merit-based immigration.” As part of his offer to put 1.8 million young, unauthorized immigrant “Dreamers” on a path to citizenship, Mr. Trump also wants to shift legal immigration away from prioritizing family reunification to a system based on individual qualifications. It would be a significant change – if lawmakers could agree on what constitutes “merit.” The president and his supporters in Congress appear to be defining merit as highly skilled, well-educated immigrants who speak English and can support themselves. But what about strawberry pickers or hotel workers? Those jobs are commonly performed by low-skilled immigrants. And then there’s the brother or sister of a legal resident who comes to America and starts a business, whose family helps him or her adjust to a new culture.

DENVER DISTRICT ATTORNEY JOINS CHALLENGE TO TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S IMMIGRATION POLICIES / NOELLE PHILLIPS / THE DENVER POST
Denver District Attorney Beth McCann joined 32 other prosecutors and police leaders in challenging the Trump administration’s effort to tie funding for law enforcement to a city’s immigration policies. McCann signed onto a brief to support the city of Los Angeles in its lawsuit against the U.S. Justice Department and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Los Angeles lawsuit argues against a Sessions policy to show preference when awarding grants from the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services to cities that pledge to assist with federal immigration enforcement. The brief McCann signed argues that the Sessions policy would harm the trust and respect local law enforcement needs to have with local communities because people who fear deportation would not cooperate with criminal investigations.

BLACK UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IS AT A RECORD LOW; LATINO RATE IS CLOSE / JIM PUZZANGHERA / LOS ANGELES TIMES
“Something I’m very proud of: African American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded. And Hispanic American unemployment has also reached the lowest levels in history,” President Trump said Tuesday. He’s right on black unemployment but not quite right on the rate for Latinos. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported last month that the unemployment rate for blacks dropped to 6.8% in December, the lowest since the government began tracking the figure in 1972. The tax cuts enacted last month are not the biggest in American history, despite what President Trump said in his State of the Union address Tuesday. “Just as I promised the American people from this podium 11 months ago, we enacted the biggest tax cuts and reform in American history,” Trump said.

MASS IMMIGRATION HAS DRIVEN BRITAIN INTO THE ECONOMIC DOLDRUMS. HERE'S HOW WE FIX IT / DAVID GOODHART / THE TELEGRAPH
Immigration in general, and EU free movement in particular, was one of the biggest factors behind the Brexit vote. A Brexit without a clear end to free movement in its current form is neither possible nor desirable. But there are many ways of ending free movement, and if the government plays its cards right it can sharply reduce inflows, especially of unskilled workers, while remaining an open hub economy and country, especially in relation to skilled professionals and students from the EU. In a report published today for the think tank Policy Exchange, I advocate several steps to achieve this balanced outcome. They include: no automatic right of residence for EU citizens coming in the future; a “light-touch” five year work-permit for future EU professionals to be cleared in less than a month; more restrictive two year permits for unskilled workers with preference for those willing to work...
