LA CHEF MEXICANA QUE TRIUNFA EN EL VATICANO / EXPANSIÓN
Diana Beltrán nunca pasó por una escuela de cocina. Su bautismo entre cacerolas se forjó en la infancia. En las tardes, con la abuela materna en Acapulco, que cocinaba pantagruélicas comidas para trece nietos. Y con la paterna, Teresa, una cocinera de profesión con la cual pasaba los veranos en un rancho de Zupango del Río, en el estado de Guerrero. “El olor a masa de tortillas de maíz morado era omnipresente allí. Las comíamos con sal”, relata. Su enfoque hoy es ese mundo de tradición. “En México, en la actualidad existen dos grandes corrientes culinarias. Yo me he entregado a la cocina tradicional, la que se alimenta de nuestros orígenes”, afirma Beltrán, hoy una chef famosa que, en los últimos años, ha tomado la costumbre de volver a México y perderse por pequeños lugares.

La Junta de Supervisores del condado de Pima, cuya jurisdicción en el sur-centro de Arizona abarca la ciudad de Tucson y unos 200 km. de frontera con México, rechazó por primera vez el dinero que el gobierno federal le otorga para fomentar su colaboración con la Patrulla Fronteriza.

IMMIGRANT SERVICE MEMBERS WON'T FACE DEPORTATION, MATTIS SAYS / LOLITA C. BALDOR / FOX NEWS
The nearly 850 immigrants currently serving in the military or waiting to start basic training won't face deportation despite the ongoing federal wrangling over the fate of people who came to America illegally as children, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said. Mattis said Thursday he spoke with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen earlier in the day in what he described as a "confirming call" and was told that those military members and all veterans who were honorably discharged will be safe unless they have committed a serious felony or a judge had issued a specific deportation order for them. President Donald Trump said in September that he was terminating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which provided protection from deportation for people brought to America as children who are now living here illegally.

IMMIGRATION RULES CHANGE AND BUDGET DEAL HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON: PUBLIC CHARGES / ERIK SHERMAN / FORBES
Life is full of odd and darkly humorous juxtapositions if you pay attention. A new example connects immigrants, corporations, and the just-passed and signed budget plan. The Trump administration is working on new rules that would make it easier for the government to prevent immigrants from settling, or even send them packing if already here, as Vox uncovered yesterday. The Trump administration is working on new rules that would allow the government to keep immigrants from settling in the US, or even force them to leave, if their families had used a broad swath of local, state, or federal social services to which they’re legally entitled — even enrolling their US-born children in Head Start or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

MISSING FROM THE IMMIGRATION DEBATE: RECEIPTS / JENNIFER MENDELSOHN / LOS ANGELES TIMES
My friend Brian used to tell a charming story about the derivation of his last name. His paternal grandfather had been born "Dam." But upon arriving at Ellis Island, the first thing Grandpa Harry saw was a fruit seller, so he changed his name on a whim to Fruchter, later changed again to the more easily spelled Frazer. At least that was the story until I offered to help Brian with his family tree a few years ago. I found his grandfather's birth record from Navariya, a town in the former Austro-Hungarian province of Galicia. Harry's name at birth had in fact been Dam. But "Fruchter" was clearly listed on that 1904 document as well: it was his mother's maiden name. And "Fruchter" was actually the surname printed on Harry's Polish passport and the name he had given when he boarded the S.S. Paris in Le Havre to come to the United States in 1930, before ever setting foot on Ellis Island.

IN HOUSTON, 45% PAY HIKES ARE DANGLED TO LURE IMMIGRANT WORKERS / THOMAS BLACK / BLOOMBERG / BLOOMBERG
Cesar Gomez’s life is great right now. And a little scary. The great part: He just got a 45 percent raise –- to $160 a day. A master remodeler in Houston, he’s in such hot demand amid the post-hurricane cleanup that his boss threw him the extra cash to make sure he wouldn’t bolt for a rival outfit. But Gomez is wanted in another sense of the word, too. He’s an undocumented Mexican living in a state that’s pursuing one of the country’s toughest crackdowns on undocumented immigrants. This has made him extra leery of bumping into police officers and, as a result, hesitant to venture outside for anything but work. “I just go straight home from work to eat and sleep and that’s it, and then back to work again,” he said.

IMMIGRANT RIGHTS ACTIVIST TEMPORARILY AVOIDS DEPORTATION / PRISCILLA DEGREGORY / THE NEW YORK POST
The feds have agreed to issue a temporary stay of deportation for immigrant-rights activist Ravi Ragbir, it was announced on Friday. Ragbir has been fighting deportation after he was arrested on Jan. 11 during a routine check-in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement that sparked protests and arrests of nearly 20 people. Reps for Ragbir — the Trinidad native — also announced that they will be filing a lawsuit in Manhattan federal court on Friday against ICE, Homeland Security, the Dept. of Justice and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to permanently stop officials from attempts to deport Ragbir and for relief for other immigrants rights activists who have also been targeted for deportation. “Justice was restored today, at least temporarily, as Mr. Ragbir is now able to remain in the United States and free until the Court reviews his constitutional claims,” Ragbir’s attorney R. Stanton Jones said.

RALLY SET FOR IMMIGRANT COUPLE FACING DEPORTATION TO CHINA / THE WASHINGTON TIMES
Immigrant advocates are set to rally in Hartford to protest the deportation of a couple who have been in the U.S. for nearly 20 years and have two American citizen children. Democratic U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut is scheduled to join demonstrators at the federal courthouse Friday to call on federal officials to halt the deportation of Xiang Jin Li and Zhe Long Huang. The Farmington couple have been ordered to return to China on Feb. 16 under the Trump administration’s tougher immigration policies. Li and Huang own a nail salon in Simsbury and have no criminal records. They entered the country illegally in 1999. Their 5- and 15-year-old sons were born in the U.S. They are considering whether to leave their sons with friends in the U.S.

‘VISA OFFSETS’: WHY AMNESTY SHOULD BE PAIRED WITH CUTS TO LEGAL IMMIGRATION / FRED BAUER / THE NATIONAL REVIEW
Amnesty is a backdoor way of increasing legal immigration, so let’s treat it like one. We live in an era of performative outrage, but it’s worth trying to imagine a middle ground for the immigration issue. To that end, I offer the concept of “visa offsets”: a way to provide amnesty to illegal immigrants in a way that will appeal to restrictionists. Here’s how it would work. Those given amnesty would receive legal status and permanent-residency visas. However, going forward, a certain percentage of legal-immigration visas would be eliminated each year to “pay for” those amnesty visas. And when all the amnesty visas had been “paid for” over a period of years, the rate of future legal immigration would rise back to its original levels.

CULTURE CLASH SKEWERS IMMIGRATION POLICY IN WICKEDLY WILD 'SAPO' / F. KATHLEEN FOLEY / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Wild and crazy guys for 30 years and counting, the members of Culture Clash take dead aim at the country's fractured immigration policies in "Sapo" at the Getty Villa. Very loosely based on Aristophanes' "The Frogs," the show is a fanciful mélange that is almost indescribable — hyper, nutty, bawdy, savagely hilarious and also wrenching. The show opens to the live music of the infectiously buoyant L.A. band Buyepongo. Recent footage of wildfire along the 405 Freeway flashes on the rear wall, courtesy of Yee Eun Nam's witty projection design, which is incorporated into the action to wickedly subversive effect. Those images are just one indication of how topical this adaptation of ancient Greek theater will be.

TRUDEAU PICKS UP PROMISES AMID US IMMIGRATION UNCERTAINTIES / JULIET WILLIAMS / ABC NEWS
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau picked up promises of investments and jobs during his first official visit to San Francisco where he promoted Canada as a destination for California technology firms frustrated by uncertain U.S. immigration laws. Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff announced the online business software company will invest another $2 billion in its Canadian operations. And San Francisco-based AppDirect, a cloud subscription service whose co-CEO first met Trudeau in political science class at McGill University in Montreal, said it would add another 300 jobs in Canada in the next five years. "I'm enthused about the interest that these global companies are taking in Canada," Trudeau told reporters at AppDirect. "It is a benefit for those companies that invest in Canada, because they get such a high caliber of talent."

HOW CHEDDAR MAN SHATTERS ACCEPTED VIEWS OF IMMIGRATION / SHREE PARADKAR / TORONTO STAR
You’ve got to confess it’s worthy of chuckles and cackles. A made-for-Internet scientific discovery that at the same time strikes at the core of modern racial strife. An announcement Wednesday that DNA tests on the oldest complete skeleton in Britain, that heart and ancestral home of many white people around the world, suggest that the first modern Briton was blue-eyed, yes, but very dark-skinned and curly-haired. The Cheddar Man, named thus for the English village of Cheddar where his skeleton was discovered in 1903, is about 10,000 years old. To add salt to a supremacist’s wound, scientists said that the genes for lighter skin likely came from, you got it, immigrants from the Middle East.

A Athènes, Nathalie Loiseau, la ministre française chargée des Affaires européennes, a appelé a plus de solidarité sur les questions migratoires, mais aussi à plus de responsabilité, notamment sur les îles grecques de l’est de la mer Egée.

«L'IMMIGRATION VA BAISSER» : LA PROMESSE DE COLLOMB NE CONVAINC PAS LA DROITE / EMMANUEL GALIERO / LE FIGARO
Pour Les Républicains, la prévision d'une baisse de l'immigration, annoncée par le ministre de l'Intérieur vendredi matin sur BFMTV, est destinée à «masquer un laxisme réel» du gouvernement sur le sujet. Gérard Collomb s'est voulu offensif, vendredi matin sur BFMTV. «L'immigration va baisser», a annoncé le ministre de l'Intérieur, alors que le gouvernement doit présenter son projet de loi asile et immigration le 21 février. Il s'est également engagé sur la question du renvoi dans leur pays d'origine des «migrants économiques», en se disant favorable à un meilleur accueil des migrants «persécutés».
