Jorge Ramos was back in Fox News this week. I guess that Jorge knows where the viewers are.
Frankly, Jorge Ramos looks more and more like an immigration activist rather than a journalist. It may be time for Univision or Fusion to start calling Ramos a “contributor with an opinion” rather than the face of a news network. He looks a lot like a man leading a movement rather than a serious journalist doing news.
Tucker and Jorge went back and forth on the whole issue of illegal immigration.
Ramos then confused the heck out of the audience with his silly “our” vs. “your” country argument.
We all agree that “this land is our land” and welcome the wonderful contributions of legal Mexicans.
Our issue is with illegal immigration but Ramos does not see the difference. I think that this is where Ramos loses credibility with a large audience that does not hate Mexicans or immigrants. Instead, they hate an environment where people, employers for example, are violating the law and not playing fair.
However, it was what he said about Mexico that will likely get a response south of the border.
Tucker brought up Mexico’s immigration laws and Jorge took no prisoners when discussing his native country:
Ramos said his home country is a “terrible example” for human rights in that way, and said America has a responsibility to always do better than the standards Mexico sets.
On this issue, Jorge Ramos is correct. My problem with Ramos is that he spends little time talking about this on Spanish-speaking TV.
