Jorge Ramos to Latino Immigrants: 'This Is OUR Country, Not Theirs...'
There's nary a time that we aren't shaking our heads after hearing Jorge Ramos speak. In case you aren't familiar, he's a journalist with Univision and he's also an immigrant. So IN YOUR FACE, AMERICA. Or something. Jorge himself came here legally, but he tends to go on lengthy rants to the effect of justifying illegal immigration. We've come to expect such biased thought dribble coming from Univision thusly (see Clinton and Univision Billionaire Unite, Attack Trump). But Jorge's rant from the other night is worthy of major cringe.

I am an immigrant, just like many of you. I am a proud Latino immigrant here in the United States. My name is Jorge Ramos, and I work at Univision and at the Fusion network. And you know exactly what is going on here in the United States. There are many people who do not want us to be here, and who want to create a wall in order to separate us. But you know what? This is also our country. Let me repeat this: OUR country, not theirs. It is our country.
And we are not going to leave.We are nearly 60 million Latinos in the United States. And thanks to US, the United States eats, grows and, as we’ve seen today, sings and dances. So when they attack us, we already know what we are going to do. We are not going to sit down. We will not shut up. And we will not leave. That is what we are going to do.
Firstly, his immigrantness clearly knows not the difference between "legal immigration" and "illegal immigration." A common mistake among those with brain activity rivaled by that of a potato (see NOT SATIRE: Liberal Doesn't Know Difference Between ILLEGAL and LEGAL Immigrants...). To Jorge, Trump's beefing up of national security is an attack on all immigrants, not simply illegal ones. He clearly doesn't believe there's a difference between the two. But in reality? One is an immigrant, and one is a criminal.
Also, no, Los Estados Unidos doesn't belong to illegal immigrants. Not even California (read Actually, No. Immigrants Aren't the "Backbone of America." America is...).
Words are hard.
This blunderous blubbering is coming from a respected journalist, mind you. No, really. The left calls him the "Walter Cronkite of Latino America." Yet in this speech directed to a Latino audience, he flat out lied. Ramos is spewing on about a mythical war being waged on all immigrants. He lies, and pours gasoline all over an already combustible situation while he's doing it.
But replace Ramos with a conservative and Univision with Fox News, and the rest of the media - the media that call him Walter Cronkite - would be whining about fake news and lies for weeks to come. It appears that lies only count as lies when the "other guy" does it. Oops.
