URGE TRUMP A ALCANZAR ACUERDO MIGRATORIO CON MURO Y ‘DREAMERS’ / JORNADA
El presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, elogió este martes sus propuestas sobre inmigración e infraestructuras. Ambos planes enfrentan un futuro incierto en el Congreso. En un tuit publicado este martes, Trump afirmó que demócratas y republicanos deben actuar ahora para proporcionar protección legal a los conocidos como dreamers, inmigrantes jóvenes que llegaron al país de forma ilegal cuando eran menores y no tienen permiso de residencia. “¡Esta será nuestra última oportunidad, nunca habrá otra oportunidad! Cinco de marzo”, escribió el dirigente.

JUEZ SE NIEGA A PONER FIN A DACA COMO PIDIÓ TRUMP / MILENIO
Un juez federal de Nueva York falló que el gobierno del presidente Donald Trump no ofreció "argumentos jurídicamente adecuados" para poner fin a un programa que protege de la deportación a miles de jóvenes migrantes que llegaron a Estados Unidos siendo menores de edad. El juez federal de distrito Nicholas Garaufis dijo en su orden que el mandatario republicano "indiscutiblemente" tiene la autoridad para poner fin al Programa de Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA por sus iniciales en inglés), pero que al hacerlo se sustentó en posicionamientos legales deficientes.

ALUMNOS INDOCUMENTADOS EN CALIFORNIA PIDEN MENOS AYUDA FINANCIERA / DIARIO DE JUÁREZ
Ha habido una importante caída en las solicitudes de ayuda financiera que presentan los estudiantes en California que viven en Estados Unidos sin permiso legal de residencia y que llegaron al país cuando eran niños. Asesores académicos opinan que esto refleja la creciente desconfianza hacia el gobierno entre las familias de inmigrantes, además de la incertidumbre por el estatus del programa Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA por sus siglas en inglés), que protege temporalmente de la deportación a jóvenes migrantes que llegaron al país de niños pero que hoy no cuentan con permiso de residencia.

MIGRANTES USAN TRÁILER PARA PERSEGUIR EL SUEÑO AMERICANO / ANTONIO HERNANDEZ / MILENIO
Migrantes irregulares dejaron el tren y ahora van tras el sueño americano por medio de cajas de tráiler, parece que les resulta más fácil llegar a nuestra frontera por carreteras, informó dijo Gloria Garza Jiménez, subsecretaria de Legalidad y Servicios Gubernamentales del Gobierno de Tamaulipas, al destacar que la federación y los estados deben ponerse las pilas porque cuántos retenes pasaron para llegar a la frontera. Por medio de estos filtros y otras acciones se está evitando el riesgo de colapso en los municipios por los repatriados y se está evitando que queden varados y generen riesgos de seguridad y salud.

SENATE IMMIGRATION DEBATE GRINDS TO A HALT BEFORE IT EVEN STARTS / NICOLE GAUDIANO AND DEIRDRE SHESGREEN / USA TODAY
The Senate agreed Monday to launch a free-wheeling debate on immigration, and then immediately crashed into a partisan squabble that ground the process to a halt. In short, the parties have been unable since then to agree on what legislation to debate. Both sides say they’re seeking bipartisan legislation to bolster immigration enforcement and provide legal protection for undocumented immigrants known as DREAMers who came to the U.S. as children. Getting that legislation to the Senate floor for a vote is another matter. As some lawmakers continued to work behind the scenes on a compromise bill, Senate leaders have been arguing over where to begin.

BID TO HELP IMMIGRANT 'DREAMERS' MAY BOG DOWN OVER ISSUE OF FAMILY REUNIFICATION VISAS / LISA MASCARO / LOS ANGELES TIMES
As the Senate considers protections for "Dreamers," the debate has quickly turned to the question of whether those who achieve legal status should be able to sponsor loved ones to join them in the United States. The White House, with legislation crafted by GOP leaders, wants to block future immigrants from being able to petition for relatives beyond spouses and minor children. President Trump rejects what he calls "chain migration," a term others view as derisive, in favor of giving visas to immigrants with specific technology skills or other sought-after experience. More specifically, Republicans want to prevent the nearly 700,000 Dreamers from helping the parents who brought them to the U.S. irregularly as children earn permanent legal status.

IMMIGRANT STUDENTS AGAIN SEEK ACCESS TO FINANCIAL AID / FOX
Immigrant students without legal status in the United States are again urging Connecticut legislators to make them eligible for institutional financial assistance at state-run colleges and universities. This marks the fifth year that legislation has been proposed to make immigrant students eligible for financial aid funded by tuition payments from all students. Opponents have said the bill sends the wrong message. Students and their supporters told the General Assembly’s Higher Education and Employment Advancement Committee on Tuesday about the struggles the immigrant students face in trying to fund their education. Both Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman are urging lawmakers to finally pass the legislation this year, saying circumstances by which the students arrived in the U.S. should not determine their futures.

DAD FIGHTING DEPORTATION HEADED BACK TO KANSAS CITY AREA / HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH / ABC NEWS
A Kansas father fighting efforts by the U.S. to deport him to Bangladesh was being returned Wednesday from Honolulu to the Kansas City area, even as local members of Congress push legislation that would make him and his wife lawful permanent residents. U.S. immigration officials put Syed Ahmed Jamal, 55, on a plane bound for his native country Monday before an immigration panel granted a temporary stay in the case. He was taken off the flight when it stopped to refuel in Honolulu, said Rekha Sharma-Crawford, one of his attorneys. She said on Facebook that he was returning to the Kansas City area Wednesday afternoon. Jamal's return came one day after Republican U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, whose district includes Lawrence, introduced a bill that would provide for the "relief" of Jamal and his wife, whose legal name is Zaynaub Jahan Chowdhury. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, a Democrat from Missouri who has also taken up Jamal's case, helped draft the bill and "fully supports" it, said spokeswoman Heather Frierson.

A YOUNG DEPORTEE'S STORY: BORN IN MEXICO, RAISED IN U.S., BURIED NAMELESS / JEFF GERRITT / THE ADA NEWS
When a photo of the blue Nikes Zaira Gonzales bought her brother Christian showed up on a federal missing persons website recently, she knew his return journey to Palestine from Mexico had ended badly. And so, too, her five-year search for him following his deportation at age 23, even though he had lived in east Texas since age 8, when he entered the U.S. with his mother and two younger siblings. “I instantly recognized the shoes,” said Zaira. “But I still wanted to believe that maybe it wasn’t him — that maybe someone had stolen them.” Sadly, that wasn’t the case. DNA tests by Texas State University confirmed the shoes were those of Christian, whose body was buried anonymously, along with hundreds of other undocumented immigrants who didn’t make it, in the dirt and sands of Brooks County 70 miles north of the Mexican border.

L’IMMIGRATION INTERNATIONALE A FAIT GRANDIR LA POPULATION DE MONTREAL / DOMINIQUE CAMBRON-GOULET / JOURNAL METRO
La population de la région métropolitaine de Montréal a augmenté de 48 515 personnes de 2016 à 2017, selon des données publiées mardi par Statistique Canada. Cette hausse est en grande partie attribuable à l’immigration internationale. Près de 42 000 personnes ont immigré à Montréal depuis l’étranger entre le 1er juillet 2016 et le 1er juillet 2017. Durant la même période, 5 891 personnes de la région métropolitaine de recensement (RMR) de Montréal ont quitté vers l’international, ce qui amène le solde migratoire montréalais à 37 065.

HUNGARY SUBMITS ANTI-IMMIGRATION 'STOP SOROS' BILL TO PARLIAMENT / KRISZTINA THAN / REUTERS
Hungary’s nationalist government introduced legislation that would empower the interior minister to ban non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that support migration and pose a “national security risk”. The bill, submitted to parliament late on Tuesday, is a key part of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s anti-immigration campaign targeting U.S. financier George Soros whose philanthropy aims to bolster liberal and open-border values in eastern Europe. The government says the bill, which would also impose a 25 percent tax on foreign donations to NGOs that back migration in Hungary, is meant to deter illegal immigration Orban says is eroding European stability and has been stoked in part by Soros.
