PRESIDENTE DE EU LANZA AMENAZA A CALIFORNIA / EL UNIVERSAL
El cúmulo de amenazas de la administración de Donald Trump contra las jurisdicciones que no colaboran en la persecución de inmigrantes indocumentados dio ayer un paso más cuando el presidente amenazó al estado de California con retirar los agentes federales de inmigración y frontera desplegados en ese territorio. La cruzada de las autoridades federales contra el movimiento “santuario” está llegando a un punto límite y el mandatario no dudó en advertir de un castigo nunca antes propuesto y que, además de prácticamente irrealizable, iría contra la política de la administración de ampliar el número de efectivos en estados fronterizos como California, y no menguar su presencia.

AÚN CON MUROS EN LA FRONTERA, LA MIGRACIÓN A EU CONTINUARÁ / GEORGINA SALDIERNA / LA JORNADA
El remplazo de la barda colocada en la frontera entre México y Estados Unidos a la altura de Calexico y Mexicali, es un ensayo del gobierno estadunidense para construir la otra parte del muro, consideraron ayer internacionalistas. Sin embargo, dicha muralla no va a detener la migración ni el tráfico de drogas y armas, destacaron, al considerar que el gobierno de México debería tomar medidas para tener un mejor país y evitar así que la gente salga de territorio nacional. Pía Taracena, académica de la Universidad Iberoamericana, explicó que la construcción del muro es un mensaje muy agresivo y racista hacia quienes tienen una cultura diferente a la estadunidense y una señal de que no quiere saber de ellos. La catedrática estimó que esa barda lo que dice a los latinoamericanos es que son los de afuera y “no los queremos… además de que son una amenaza para mí”.

FAMILIA DE MEXICANO ASESINADO EN TIROTEO DE FLORIDA REÚNE FONDOS PARA FUNERAL / EL UNIVERSAL
La familia de Martín Duque, el joven mexicano de 14 años, fallecido en la escuela Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School de Florida, Estados Unidos abrió una cuenta de GoFundMe en internet para que sus abuelas puedan viajar desde México al sepelio del adolescente. “Era un niño muy divertido, extrovertido pero a veces realmente callado. Era dulce, cariñoso y querido por todos en su familia. Por encima de todo era mi hermanito. Mi familia y yo no tenemos palabras para describir lo que sentimos y la tragedia que estamos viviendo”, señala Miguel uno de sus hermanos, quien abrió la cuenta que hasta el momento suma 43 mil 110 dólares recaudados. Miguel aclara que pese a que el estado y la Fundación de Educación de Broward pagarán los gastos del funeral de su hermano, las donaciones ayudarán a cubrir los gastos adicionales que la familia enfrentará como resultado de la tragedia, así como “traer a mis dos abuelas de México para el funeral”.

TRUMP URGES MEXICO TO BLOCK ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FROM EL SALVADOR / REUTERS
U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday called on Mexico to do more to prevent violent illegal immigrants from El Salvador from entering the United States, again pushing his long-proposed border wall but stopping short of saying Mexico would fund it. Trump, in a post on Twitter, said U.S. law enforcement was removing gang members from El Salvador but that they continued to return, adding: “El Salvador just takes our money, and Mexico must help MORE with this problem. We need The Wall!”

BLACK AND LATINO IMMIGRANTS SUE TRUMP FOR RACISM OVER ENDING OF TPS PROGRAM / CARLOS BALLESTEROS / NEWSWEEK
A group of Haitian and Salvadoran immigrants sued the Trump administration on Thursday in a federal court in Boston, arguing that the decision to end special protections that shielded them from deportation was motivated by racism against blacks and Latinos. The Lawyers' Committee for Civil and Economic Justice, a Boston-based legal non-profit, filed the suit on behalf of eight immigrants enrolled in the Temporary Protected Status program, or TPS. The lawsuit seeks to block President Donald Trump's attempt to strip TPS from hundreds of thousands of immigrants from Haiti and El Salvador next year.

IS AMERICA A ‘NATION OF IMMIGRANTS’? IMMIGRATION AGENCY SAYS NO / MIRIAM JORDAN / THE NEW YORK TIMES
The federal agency that issues green cards and grants citizenship to people from foreign countries has stopped characterizing the United States as “a nation of immigrants.” The director of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services informed employees in a letter on Thursday that its mission statement had been revised to “guide us in the years ahead.” Gone was the phrase that described the agency as securing “America’s promise as a nation of immigrants.” The original mission statement said: “U.S.C.I.S. secures America’s promise as a nation of immigrants by providing accurate and useful information to our customers, granting immigration and citizenship benefits, promoting an awareness and understanding of citizenship, and ensuring the integrity of our immigration system.”

THE WORLD'S MOST POPULAR SUPERHERO IS AN UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT / BAMBADJAN BAMBA / THE WASHINGTON POST
Growing up an African immigrant in the United States, the only movie that even somewhat spoke to my existence was Eddie Murphy’s classic 1988 comedy “Coming to America.” While I loved that film, its portrayal of an African prince who travels to New York City to find a bride did not represent the ambiguity and frustration of my everyday experience. My journey here was similar to many black immigrants. My family came to the United States in 1992, when I was 10 years old. We were fleeing political persecution in Côte d’Ivoire. We came in with visitors’ visas and applied for political asylum. It wasn’t until my senior year in high school, while waiting for my pending asylum case, that I realized I was undocumented.

NOW ON IMMIGRATION'S FRONT LINES, SHERIFFS ARE CHOOSING TO BACK OR SNUB ICE / JOHN BURNETT / NPR
Anytime someone is booked into a county jail for a crime in the U.S., his or her fingerprints are automatically sent to federal authorities. If the suspect happens to be an undocumented immigrant, what happens next could depend on where the jail is located. Immigration and Customs Enforcement often asks jails to hold undocumented people, so federal agents can pick them up and put them into deportation proceedings. Most counties comply with those detainer requests. And the Trump administration has been building on these partnerships with local law enforcement in friendlier jurisdictions. But across America, so-called sanctuary cities and states have taken a stand against the administration's immigration crackdown. They say it's not their job to enforce immigration law, and they don't comply with requests.

WIDOW SAYS REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE’S IMMIGRATION AD POLITICIZES HER HUSBAND’S DEATH / SAMANTHA SCHMIDT / THE WASHINGTON POST
The political ad opens with formidable music, a dark screen and a mug shot. “Here illegally, Manuel Orrego-Savala was deported twice and had multiple convictions and arrests,” says Mike Braun, a Republican from Indiana running for the U.S. Senate. Orrego-Savala is the man accused of killing Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver Jeffrey Monroe in a drunken-driving incident Feb. 4 on an Indianapolis interstate. Braun’s political ad highlights the deaths to call for stronger immigration policies. “It was a senseless tragedy and it never should have happened,” Braun says in the ad. “Politicians in Washington have ignored this issue for far too long.

IMMIGRATION STORIES STIR CONFLICT IN 'ONE HOUSE OVER' / MIKE FISCHER / JOURNAL SENTINEL
Given that we’re a nation of immigrants, how and why do we focus on the borders and boundaries dividing us rather than all we actually share? That’s the core question in playwright Catherine Trieschmann’s “One House Over,” a world premiere being directed by Mark Clements that begins performances at the Milwaukee Repertory Theater on Tuesday. Set in a western Chicago suburb in 2010, Trieschmann’s play opens with 50-something Joanne hiring 30-something Camila as a caretaker for Milos, Joanne’s ailing 89-year-old father and a first-generation Czech immigrant.

RISQUES DE VIOLENCE DES SEPARATISTES: JUSTIN TRUDEAU NIE AVOIR EVOQUE LE QUEBEC / MELANIE MARQUIS / LE DEVOIR
Justin Trudeau a catégoriquement nié vendredi avoir utilisé l’exemple de la lutte des souverainistes au Québec pour illustrer les risques de violence que peuvent poser les mouvements indépendantistes. « Le rapport est entièrement faux. Je n’ai pas dit ça », a-t-il tranché en conférence de presse à New Delhi, en Inde. Le premier ministre a plaidé qu’il avait « toujours été très fier du fait que le Canada et le Québec ont des leçons à partager avec le monde sur le pluralisme, la diversité, les différents points de vue, sans avoir recours à la violence ».

DE L'IMMIGRE CLANDESTIN A "L'IMMIGRATION CHOISIE": LA FABRIQUE DE L'EXPRESSION "SANS-PAPIERS" / FRANCE CULTURE
La question de l'immigration occupe de nouveau le devant de la scène politique, avec la présentation le 21 février dernier en conseil des ministres du projet de loi "pour une immigration maîtrisée et un droit d'asile effectif". Quelques jours plus tôt, le gouvernement annonçait de nouvelles mesures pour lutter contre le travail illégal. Derrière ces mesures et politiques, une figure récurrente : celle du "sans-papiers". "La Fabrique de l'Autre", c'est c'est chaque mois dans La Fabrique de l'Histoire l'analyse d'un mot qui catégorise un groupe de gens, et une plongée dans l'histoire pour comprendre la genèse du terme en question.

FACT-CHECK: BRUXELLES BAISSE-T-ELLE LES BRAS FACE A « L’IMMIGRATION DE MASSE »? / FREDERIC SIMON / EURACTIV
Contrairement à ce qu’ont pu affirmer certains sites proches de l’extrême droite, le Commissaire européen aux migrations n’a jamais affirmé qu’il était vain de tenter d’endiguer « l’immigration de masse ». Euractiv revient sur ces allégations dans ‘Contre-Faits’, un programme proposé en collaboration avec France 24. « Aucun coin de l’Union européenne n’échappera à l’immigration de masse ». C’est la citation choc attribuée au Commissaire européen aux migrations et aux affaires intérieures, Dimitris Avramopoulos, au mois de décembre dernier.

INFRASTRUCTURE AUSTRALIA WADES INTO TONY ABBOTT'S IMMIGRATION DEBATE / THE GUARDIAN
Infrastructure Australia has waded into the explosive political debate over immigration, as Tony Abbott again defended his call to slash the intake in an opinion piece in the Australian. Infrastructure Australia warned in a new report that it was neither feasible nor desirable for the country to turn its back on the opportunities presented by population growth. In a report released on Friday, the independent statutory body lays out different options for how cities plan for, encourage and manage this growth. But it is warning failing to prepare for population growth will see cities including Sydney and Melbourne suffer from congestion and a lack of access to jobs, schools, parks and hospitals.
