The president’s State of the Union address last week continues to be a hot topic in the Spanish-language press. Philadelphia’s Al Día has posted an article from the news service Hispanic Link, “Hispanics unhappy with Obama for slighting immigration reform” (“Se resienten los hispanos con Obama por desairar la reforma migratoria”); Chicago’s La Raza runs the headline “Obama avoids Hispanic immigrants” (“Obama elude a inmigrantes hispanos”); and an article in La Prensa, in Orlando, is titled “Only a few words for such a big issue” (“Una pequeña frase para tanto tema”).

President Obama’s aunt, Zeituni Onyango, faces a deportation hearing after overstaying her tourist visa and having her application for political asylum rejected, as reported by the AP, the EFE, La Voz (Arizona), and La Crónica.
