REALIZA SENADORA DE EU MARATÓNICO DISCURSO A FAVOR DE 'DREAMERS' / DIARIO DE JUÁREZ
La líder de la minoría en la Cámara de Representantes, Nancy Pelosi, protagonizó el miércoles un histórico discurso de ocho horas en un intento por forzar a la cámara baja a votar sobre protecciones a los "dreamers", y para demostrarles a los indignados progresistas y activistas que ha hecho todo lo posible. Con zapatos de tacón de 10 centímetros y sin tomar un solo descanso, Pelosi pasó gran parte de la maratónica sesión leyendo cartas personales de los jóvenes inmigrantes, cuyas protecciones temporales de deportación están programadas para terminar el próximo mes. La demócrata por California citó la Biblia y al papa Francisco, mientras los demócratas se turnaban para ocupar asientos detrás de ella en una señal de apoyo.

‘DREAMERS’, LOS RETOS DE LA LEGALIZACIÓN / ENRIQUE BERRUGA FILLOY / EL UNIVERSAL
En las últimas semanas, Donald Trump ha dado visos de que va entendiendo la dinámica de Washington. El proyecto más detallado y concreto que ha presentado hasta la fecha toca directamente los intereses de México y coloca a los demócratas en una posición de virtual jaque mate. La propuesta que hizo en su mensaje a la nación en materia migratoria puede fortalecerle políticamente y, dependiendo de la forma en que la explote, traerle grandes dividendos en las elecciones intermedias de fin de año.

CON LA EXPULSIÓN DE DREAMERS, LA ECONOMÍA DE NUEVA YORK RESULTARÍA AFECTADA / RAFAEL GONZÁLEZ / MILENIO

OFRECEN AYUDA GRATUITA O A BAJO COSTO PARA RENOVAR DACA, PERO ‘DREAMERS’ NO PARECEN MUY INTERESADOS / ELOY TUPAYACHI / MUNDO HISPANO
Casi un mes después de que el gobierno federal reactivó el programa Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA), pocos de los llamados ‘dreamers’ han mostrado interés en renovar su estatus migratorio, al menos en Charlotte, donde organizaciones sin fines de lucro ofrecen ayuda gratuita o a bajo costo para realizar el trámite. El programa DACA, que brinda un estatus temporal de dos años a ciertos inmigrantes indocumentados que llegaron al país cuando eran niños, fue cancelado el 5 de septiembre por la administración Trump, pero un juez de California ordenó el 10 de enero que el gobierno siga renovando el beneficio a quienes ya lo tenían.

Grupos de inmigrantes y activistas de organizaciones civiles marcharon hoy en esta ciudad californiana para exigir una legislación que proteja a los jóvenes indocumentados conocidos como "dreamers" o soñadores, pero sin aprobar fondos para la construcción de un muro en la frontera con México. La manifestación dio inicio en el parque estatal Border Field y terminó cerca del parque internacional de la Amistad, en las cercanías del lugar donde se construyeron ocho prototipos del muro fronterizo en la Mesa de Otay.

NO FIRMAR UN NUEVO TLCAN SERÍA MEJOR A UN MAL ACUERDO: TRUDEAU / EXCELSIOR
Canadá podría "estar mejor" sin firmar una versión actualizada del Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN) que si acepta un mal pacto. Así lo aseguró este miércoles el primer ministro canadiense, Justin Trudeau. El premier, quien habló en la Universidad de Chicago, sostuvo en un discurso transmitido por televisión que espera que las negociaciones para modernizar el acuerdo de 1.2 billones de dólares produzcan un buen acuerdo.

CELEBRAN MISA POR MIGRANTES Y DEFENSORES DE TERRITORIO / LETICIA ÁNIMAS / MILENIO
Para pedir la fuerza y conciencia que les permita mantener su identidad y cosmovisión como fundamentos de su lucha en la defensa de su territorio y de sus paisanos que están del otro lado del río Bravo, pobladores de Cuacuila en Huauchinango realizaron la tercera Misa por los Migrantes y la Madre Tierra. Durante la celebración religiosa, a cargo del sacerdote Juan Valles de la Diócesis de Tulancingo, los habitantes de la comunidad que en la región ha expulsado el mayor número de personas hacia Estados Unidos, pidieron que la frontera no divida a las familias y que en ese país termine el abuso hacia los migrantes.

NANCY PELOSI’S FILIBUSTER-STYLE SPEECH TOPS EIGHT HOURS IN BID TO FORCE IMMIGRATION VOTES / BASTIEN INZAURRALDE / THE WASHINGTON POST
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi commandeered the House floor Wednesday for a day-into-night marathon plea to Republicans for action on immigration, casting the fate of young undocumented immigrants in moral terms. The 77-year-old Pelosi stood for more than eight hours, reading multiple personal stories from “dreamers” and citing Bible passages. Her speech ranked as the longest given by a member of the House of Representatives in at least a century, possibly ever, focusing on an issue that has vexed Democrats for months. The speech underscored that Democrats lack the leverage they insisted they would have in spending showdowns with Republicans.

AFTER THE 'TRUMP EFFECT' SLOWED ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, NUMBERS RISE AGAIN AS CENTRAL AMERICANS FEAR CONDITIONS AT HOME / MOLLY HENNESSY-FISKE / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Illegal crossings along the U.S.-Mexico border, after declining in early 2017, began an unexpected upturn last spring that only recently receded, according to new government figures. The figures reflect the up-and-down nature of illegal immigration and are reminders that multiple factors — from politics to weather to conditions in home countries — influence who tries to come to the United States and when. Apprehensions on the southern border in October 2016, a month before Donald Trump's election, topped 66,000. After Trump's victory, the number of migrants trying to enter the U.S. illegally reached a 17-year low. Monthly apprehensions continued to drop into 2017, hitting 15,766 in April, when the downward trend reversed. Apprehensions rose each month to 40,513 in December.

TRUMP’S BACKWARD VIEW OF IMMIGRATION / THE NEW YORK TIMES
Congress now appears likely to reach a budget deal to keep the government functioning without treating as bargaining chips hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants brought to the United States when they were children. It also appears, though, that President Trump will consider undoing his threat of deportation for these young “Dreamers” only if Congress considers the first deep cuts to legal immigration since the 1920s. The changes the president is demanding stem from a nativist, zero-sum view that what’s good for immigrants is bad for America.

LATINO VOTERS COULD MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN CALIFORNIA'S NARROWING RACE FOR GOVERNOR / GEORGE SKELTON / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom shouldn't be called the front-runner anymore in the race for California governor. Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has essentially caught up. "It's a virtual toss," says Mark Baldassare, president and pollster of the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California. Newsom's once significant lead over fellow Democrat Villaraigosa has slowly eroded and the two are now statistically tied, based on a new PPIC poll of likely voters. How'd that happen? Latinos are flocking to Villaraigosa, the poll shows. And this could be the year that Latinos actually vote in powerful numbers, inspired by their disdain of President Trump's rants about illegal immigration. The candidates' first goal is to finish among the top two in the June 5 primary.

COLBERT, LAI: UNITING IMMIGRANT FAMILIES SHOULD BE PRIORITY / CYNTHIA N. COLBERT AND ZENOBIA T. LAI / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Diana – a U.S. citizen since birth – was one of thousands swept out of her home when Hurricane Harvey hit. Unfortunately, her beloved husband was not with her; he was in Mexico, waiting the 10 long years required before he could ask permission to legally immigrate back to this country. The family had been living in Mexico until Diana found out she was facing a high-risk birth, and she returned to the U.S. for the sake of her son, who requires a feeding tube and other special care. Sadly, Diana was caring for their children alone because her husband had to move away from the United States for a decade, though he was married to a U.S. citizen and had lived, worked and paid taxes in the United States for many years without immigration status.

U.S. REP. SETH MOULTON WORKING TO STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT’S DEPORTATION / ANTONIO PLANAS / BOSTON HERALD
U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton is working with lawyers of a Brazilian national to prevent his deportation after he was detained by immigration agents while seeking a green card with his American wife. Fabiano de Oliveira, 33, a Beverly resident who is an illegal immigrant, was taken into custody Jan. 9 by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents at Lawrence’s Citizenship and Immigration Services office, where he had gone with his American wife to establish legal residency. “Our office proactively reached out to Mr. de Oliveira’s lawyers regarding his case and we’re working with them to offer our assistance. ... The fact that it’s an active case, we can’t comment on the specifics,” said Matt Corridoni, a spokesman for Moulton.

HOW CAN COLLEGES GRADUATE HISPANIC STUDENTS IN STEM? A CONFERENCE AT UH LOOKS FOR ANSWERS / LINDSAY ELLIS / HOUSTON CHRONICLE
Hispanic-serving institutions like the University of Houston are looking for answers as they try to figure out how to attract students to science, technology, engineering and math fields -- and how to best support them in those studies. UH is expecting to host students, faculty and staff from Hispanic-serving institutions -- a federal designation noting that at least a quarter of students are Hispanic and at least half qualify for need-based financial aid -- at a conference next week. Hispanic students are underrepresented in STEM education despite their growing population in Texas and the United States, and these fields have an "intense demand" for skilled workers, UH said in a press release.

A HOSPITAL REFUSED A NEW LIVER TO A WOMAN BECAUSE SHE WAS UNDOCUMENTED. THEN IT FOUND ITS HEART / ELI ROSENBERG / THE WASHINGTON POST
Hospital officials in Oregon have ended a policy that prevented an undocumented woman from getting a liver transplant because of her immigration status after outcry, according to local news reports. Silvia Lesama-Santos, 46, a mother of four who has lived in the country for at least 30 years, was denied the transplant in a letter Tuesday from transplant program at the Oregon Health and Science University, a public school dedicated to health-related sciences. “You tell us that [you] do not have documentation of lawful presence or immigration documentation,” the school’s Transplant Services department wrote her in a Feb. 5 letter posted online Tuesday by the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon. “OHSU requires proof of lawful presence for transplant services.”

HISPANIC WOMEN MORE LIKELY TO DIE AFTER BREAST CANCER DIAGNOSIS / ANDREA K. MCDANIELS / BALTIMORE SUN
Diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer at age 32, Karol Contreras was already scared and unsettled. The thought of discussing her condition and treatment with doctors only added to her anxiety. Contreras grew up in Honduras; her English is limited. An acquaintance connected her with Nueva VIDA, a nonprofit that provided a bilingual mentor to accompany her to appointments at the University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson. Nueva Vida — Spanish for New Life — provides “culturally sensitive” cancer support services for Latino families in the Baltimore, Washington and Richmond, Va., areas. “She made me feel more comfortable,” Contreras said through an interpreter. Two years after her diagnosis, Contreras is now cancer-free. Other Hispanic women are not as fortunate.

BUILDING A LATINO-MUSLIM COALITION WITH #TACOTRUCKSATEVERYMOSQUE / GUSTAVO ARELLANO / NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO
The connection between Middle Eastern and Mexican food goes all the way back to the Moors, and is well-known in culinary circles. Al pastor tacos are just a pork version of the shawarma spits that Lebanese immigrants brought with them to Mexico City in the 1930s. In nearby Puebla, a wrap called tacos árabes — Arabic tacos — uses a flatbread that's halfway between pita and lavash. Kibbe (fried meatballs made from bulghur wheat) is popular in the Yucatán, thanks to Syrians who settled in the Peninsula over the past century. And the Lebanese-Mexican Chedraui family of Mexico City owns one of the largest Latino supermarket chains in the United States, El Super. But it wasn't until Orange County, Calif., residents Rida Hamida and Ben Vazquez created #TacoTrucksAtEveryMosque that someone tried to explore the political potential between Muslims and Mexicans in the United States with their shared foodways.

SERPENTINE SUMMER PAVILION: A MEXICAN SHADOW CLOCK BUILT FOR THE BRITISH BREEZE / OLIVER WAINWRIGHT / THE GUARDIAN
The phrase Mexican-British fusion might call to mind an ungodly mishmash of fish and chip burritos or steak and kidney tacos. But, in architectural terms, it looks like it could have intriguing results. We’ll find out this summer – in the form of the Serpentine pavilion, designed this year by young Mexican architect Frida Escobedo as a cross-cultural combination of Mexican domestic architecture with a distinctly British twist. Opening in London on 15 June, the structure will take the form of an enclosed courtyard, formed of two rectangular volumes, with walls made of simple stacks of grey cement roof tiles. The stacked tiles will form perforated screens, or celosias, the traditional breeze walls common to Mexican houses, but here made of the everyday off-the-peg material used to roof practically every British house.
