    Jorge Ramos: 'I no longer recognize’ the US

    Jorge Ramos: 'I no longer recognize’ the US

    By Mark Hensch - 02/07/17 12:58 PM EST



    Univision’s Jorge Ramos argues President Trump has transformed America, ending its longstanding tradition as a beacon for immigrants.

    “I’ve always publicly acknowledged that the United States gave me opportunities that Mexico, my country of origin, did not,” Ramos wrote in a Fusion op-ed Tuesday.
    “But decades after I arrived here, the anti-immigrant rhetoric being turned into policy under Donald Trump has made me realize that I just don’t recognize this country anymore,” he continued.

    “All I want is for new immigrants to enjoy the same opportunities that I – and millions of others throughout American history – have received. But for the moment, Trump is making that impossible.”Ramos also slammed Trump for not pushing for a path toward citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

    “Since Republicans control both the House and the Senate, Trump could easily push to give immigrants a chance to stay in the U.S.,” he said. "But he won’t.”

    “In 1986, [former President Ronald] Reagan, recognizing the contributions of immigrants, and with the greater good of the country in mind, granted amnesty to about 3 million undocumented people. Trump would rather expel them.”

    Ramos was an early critic of Trump's 2016 presidential run, criticizing the billionaire on border security and illegal immigration. Trump had Ramos escorted out of an August 2015 press conference after the Univision anchor interrupted the event.

    Ramos accused Trump of acting like a dictator during the incident, leading the billionaire to label him "a lunatic" during an Aug. 25, 2015, campaign rally in South Carolina.

    Ramos in his op-ed Tuesday blasted Trump's "xenophobia," saying it "isn’t limited to Mexicans." He cited the president’s temporary ban on travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations.

    “But it’s no secret that these seven nations have a Muslim majority, and that innocent Muslims with no connections to terror networks will be most harmed,” he wrote.

    “People from these seven countries are being arbitrarily punished, along with refugees from the rest of the world. They are being discriminated against because they were born in the wrong country.”

    Trump issued an executive order last month imposing a 90-day ban on visitors from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The measure also froze general refugee admissions into the U.S. for 120 days and indefinitely halted the resettlement of Syrian refugees.

    Critics have argued the directive is biased against Muslims, while Trump has countered that it is crucial for preventing "radical Islamic terrorism." A federal judge in Seattle issued a ruling halting the order last week, which the administration is challenging in court.

    Someone needs to tell George that there is a big difference between immigrants and illegal aliens.

    How ironic, most of us were thinking the exact same thing. Hopefully that problem can start to remedy itself over the next 4-8 years.

    Hopefully many of our towns and cities will look less like Mexico and other nations outside the United States due to the endless thousands of illegal aliens and refugees that have changed so many American communities. Maybe Jorge can follow the illegal aliens as they leave and interview them in their home countries for a year or so.

    The problem is that so many immigrants do not really understand the U.S. or Americans. They do not understand us or our culture. They have bought into the myth that we are a land of immigrants. They think Americans just waltzed into America, had a few fights with Indians and stole the land from then. They believe if your skin is fair that you are an evil European-American and should go back to Europe.

    They don't understand that many of our ancestors have been here for 10 plus generation. Over the generation our ancestors have intermarried with both native Indians and even with African-Americans. Unless they have an Americans DNA there is no way of knowing by the color of their skin what race we have descended from.

    Our ancestors gave their sweat and blood to form this nation. They came as freemen, indentured servants and slaves. White men owned slaves and white men were slaves. Indians owned slaves and Indians were slaves. African tribes owned slaves and sold there slaves to slave runners. For a 10th generation American chances are their ancestors fought each other. White men and Indians, the Civil War, etc.

    So, when I hear the illegal immigrants say they have lived here most of their life and that they are as American as I am, or that they do not recognize the U.S. I want to spit in their eye. I want to tell them that they have not earned the right to voice their opinion on Americans or the U.S. Being an American flows through our veins, it is who we are.
