TRUMP GETS WHAT HE WANTS IN IMMIGRATION DEBATE: QUIET ON THE RIGHT / JEREMY W. PETERS / THE NEW YORK TIMES
In 2006 and again in 2013, Republican moderates joined Democrats in the Senate to pass sweeping overhauls of the nation’s immigration laws with a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants, only to see the compromises torpedoed by a wave of angry activism in the conservative news media and grass roots. This time, as senators again search for a way forward on immigration, a revolt from the right has so far failed to materialize, in large part because of the intransigence of a different player: a man in the White House who has mostly satisfied immigration hard-liners. President Trump’s gamble was risky. And at first his plan struck many conservatives as too generous because it would offer 1.8 million young immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children the opportunity to become citizens.

CRUZ: TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION PLAN IS MORE LIBERAL THAN OBAMA’S DACA / AVERY ANAPOL / THE HILL
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) claimed Thursday that President Trump’s immigration proposal is more liberal than former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Lawmakers are debating this week on several immigration proposals, including one that mirrors Trump’s proposed framework, which would provide a pathway to citizenship for an estimated 1.8 million undocumented immigrations in exchange for heightened border security, funding for a border wall and limits on legal immigration. “That is dramatically to the left of where Barack Obama was,” Cruz said on “Fox & Friends." “DACA covered 690,000 people, why on earth are Republicans trying to more than double, nearly triple that?” “Because it’s a more accurate number,” co-host Brian Kilmeade said, speaking over Cruz.

ICE LAUNCHES NEW IMMIGRATION SWEEP IN L.A. AREA; AT LEAST 100 DETAINED SO FAR / CINDY CARCAMO / LOS ANGELES TIMES
Federal officials are in the midst of an immigration enforcement operation in the Los Angeles area and have so far detained more than 100 people suspected of being in violation of immigration laws. The sweep, which began Sunday, is focusing on "individuals who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security," Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Sarah Rodriguez said. "This means that, ideally, we are working with local police and county jails to identify public safety threats in their custody, who are also in the country illegally, for deportation," Rodriguez said in a written statement.

ATTORNEYS WARNED NOT TO ‘MENTION’ ABORTION TO IMMIGRANT TEENS IN CUSTODY, PER EMAIL FROM LEGAL GROUP / ANN E. MARIMOW AND MARIA SACCHETTI / THE WASHINGTON POST
A major legal services group for immigrant children told its lawyers nationwide not to discuss abortion access, even if minors in custody ask for help understanding their legal rights, for fear it would jeopardize a multimillion-dollar contract with the Department of Health and Human Services. The constraints on what government-funded lawyers can say to young detainees was contained in an email from the nonprofit Vera Institute of Justice, which said it acted after a phone call with an HHS employee. Vera’s instruction to lawyers comes as the Trump administration has tried in court to block access to abortion procedures for undocumented teens in federal custody.

IN IOWA CITY, LATINOS FACED THE NATION'S WORST BIAS IN HOME LOANS / RYAN J. FOLEY / PRESS CITIZEN
Latinos seeking conventional home loans in the Iowa City area were nearly four times more likely to be denied than non-Hispanic whites in 2016, the widest disparity in the nation, a new analysis of federal data shows. The findings suggest racial inequality in the mortgage market in the progressive college town and appear driven by a high rate of rejections for prospective Latino borrowers reported by a single financial institution, Hills Bank, according to the analysis of millions of records by Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting. The analysis controlled for factors such as applicants' income, loan amount, neighborhood that could affect the likelihood of denial.

IMMIGRANT ACCUSED OF GUATEMALAN WAR CRIMES MAY BE DEPORTED / SIMON RIOS / NPR
Three years ago, a woman waiting in line at a Walgreen's in Providence, R.I., recognized the man behind her — his face and black sombrero — the man she believes is responsible for the disappearance of her father and uncle. It was Juan Samayoa, a paramilitary leader from the country's civil war, who's haunted her since she was a little girl. She confronted him outside the store. "I told him he is very famous. Then I asked if he remembers [my uncle and father]. He started to shake and his facial expression changed. Then I got a lump in my throat, and I never saw him again," says the woman, who requested anonymity because she fears allies of the alleged war criminal could come after her children here in the United States.

FROM GUANAJUATO TO ALABAMA: YOUNG IMMIGRANT FOLLOWS FATHER'S COMMUNITY ORGANIZING PATH / CONNOR SHEETS / ALABAMA
Julio Cesar Baeza was not yet one year old in 1994, when his parents brought him from Mexico across the Rio Grande into the United States. His father, Jose Baeza, spent most of the family's savings on a broken-down old car he found in New Mexico and got it up and running for the long trip to Florida, where he and his wife, Rosa Luna, hoped to move in with relatives and find work picking oranges or peppers. They only made it as far as Albertville, a north Alabama town which at the time was home to about 15,000 mostly white residents. The Baezas were part of the front crest of a wave of more than 5,000 Latino immigrants who settled in Albertville - and thousands more who arrived in other Sand Mountain communities - over the past 25 years.

THE BEST MEXICAN FOOD IN EUROPE / RICHARD VINES / BLOOMBERG
Growing up as the daughter of Mexican immigrants on the South Side of Chicago, Rosio Sanchez didn’t set her career goals too high. She certainly didn’t plan on being a leader, much less a chef—even though she discovered a love of cooking at age 13. “I was a pretty quiet kid,” she says, thinking back on the days when she would spend afternoons baking cakes. “I think it was just because I was a fat girl and liked eating desserts.” Now 33, Sanchez has worked in many of the world’s top kitchens and reigns over three of her own in Copenhagen, where she serves some of the most exciting modern Mexican food in Europe. Along the way, she spent five years with chef René Redzepi and rose to head pastry chef at Noma, the four-time No. 1 on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.

MOUNT PLEASANT’S AMPARO WILL BE A TINY UNDERGROUND MEXICAN FIESTA / TIERNEY PLUMB / EATER
Oyamel alum Christian Irabien Gamboa wants to give D.C. diners a super authentic taste of what it’s actually like to dine in his native Mexico via Amparo, the new restaurant he’s working to unveil in Mount Pleasant by November. Amparo (3110 Mount Pleasant Street NW) will focus on the coastal regions of Mexico, packing lots of seafood and produce into the menu. The key theme throughout the subterranean space is “small”: there will be just 35 seats, one bar lined with mezcals, and a modestly sized open kitchen. Signage will also be inconspicuous, so “if you blink you miss it” (a common trait of hidden hangover-inducing gems sprinkled across Mexico, he notes).

‘NEWCOMERS,’ IMMIGRATION, AND ASSIMILATION IN AMERICA / REIHAN SALAM / THE NATIONAL REVIEW
There’s been a mini-firestorm over the fact that Bari Weiss, an opinion contributor and op-ed editor at the New York Times, playfully celebrated Mirai Nagasu’s recent Olympic triumph by tweeting a line from the musical Hamilton: “Immigrants: they get the job done.” Why was this line so monstrously offensive, you ask? Good question. Nagasu was born in southern California, not overseas. It is her parents who are immigrants. As I understand it, Weiss’s offense is that she “otherized” Nagasu by describing her as an immigrant. It should go without saying that Weiss clearly meant no harm by her remark. In fact, it was very much in keeping with what I don’t think is unfair to call her zeal for immigration.

MARIACHI OPERA SINGS AN IMMIGRANT'S TALE OF LOVE AND LOSS, IN POTENT POLITICAL TIMES / SCOTT TIMBERG / LOS ANGELES TIMES
It's got all the usual bits: pleading duets about yearning and loss, lonely arias of memory and romance, stirring vocal harmonies. But this is not an opera written by an Italian composer to be performed at La Scala, classical strings sighing in the background. Rather, it's a distinctly American hybrid that blends a European idiom with a musical style of Mexico. "The moment you say 'mariachi opera' to anyone, they say, 'Whoa!'" said Dan Guerrero, who is directing "Cruzar la Cara de la Luna" in Northridge this weekend. The opera, whose title translates as "To Cross the Face of the Moon," is one of five performances this spring at the Younes and Soraya Nazarian Center for the Performing Arts that deal with the subject of immigration.

IMMIGRATION DEPARTMENT MAKES MAJOR HEADWAY ON SPOUSAL SPONSORSHIP BACKLOG / NICHOLAS KEUNG / THE STAR
Immigration Canada has worked hard to play Cupid in the past year by reuniting Canadians with their significant others abroad. To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen hosted a news conference at a Mississauga dessert shop to update his department’s dramatic reduction of the spousal sponsorship backlog. According to Hussen, the number of spousal immigration applications in the queue has dropped to 15,000 from 74,900 a year ago, and the average processing time has also been sharply reduced to 12 months from 26 months. “The Government of Canada is committed to family reunification. We understand how important it is to reunite couples. It also makes for a stronger Canada,” said Hussen.

LA VALLSISTE ELISE FAJGELES DEVIENT RAPPORTEUSE DU TEXTE ASILE-IMMIGRATION / MANON RESCAN / LE MONDE
La nomination, mercredi 14 février, du rapporteur du projet de loi asile-immigration à l’Assemblée nationale a donné une première indication de l’humeur de la majorité au sujet de ce texte. La députée de Paris, Elise Fajgeles, a été désignée par le groupe La République en marche (LRM) pour gérer un exercice qui s’annonce délicat. Depuis plusieurs semaines, des voix d’élus LRM se sont élevées pour prôner un meilleur équilibre dans l’approche gouvernementale des questions d’immigration. Ils craignent que le texte ne penche trop du côté de la fermeté, avec l’accélération de la gestion des procédures d’asile et le renforcement des reconduites à la frontière, plutôt que des mesures sur l’accueil des étrangers.

IMMIGRATION: CE QUE PREVOIT LA FUTURE LOI QUI RENFORCE LA RETENTION DES «DUBLINES» / EDOUARD DE MARESCHAL / LE FIGARO
L'Assemblée nationale examine ce jeudi un texte qui sécurise et étend l'usage de la rétention administrative pour les «dublinés», ces étrangers déjà enregistrés dans un autre pays européen. Le point sur ce texte qui trouve dans opposants au sein même de la majorité. Faciliter le placement en rétention des étrangers «dublinés», tel est l'objectif de la proposition de loi présentée ce jeudi en seconde lecture à l'Assemblée nationale. Présenté par le député Jean-Luc Warsmann (UDI-Agir), ce texte a le soutien du gouvernement. S'il est adopté «conforme» comme prévu, il pourrait entrer en vigueur très rapidement.
