Univision’s Jorge Ramos: Obama Paying Off ‘Debt’ to Latinos

November 21, 2014 11:10 am  

(Truth Revolt) – Univision anchor Jorge Ramos described Obama’s executive action on immigration as paying a “debt” to the Latino community. In an interview with Fusion colleague Alicia Menendez, Ramos denied that Obama had kept his promises on immigration in full, since he had pledged to take action in his first year in office. But Ramos concluded:

What President Barack Obama is doing right now is paying a debt to the Latino community, and honestly, it’s an important victory for the Latino community.

Ramos went on to say that the President must do more, and was still leaving out 6 million undocumented aliens that need help. Asked whether Obama had kept his promise, Ramos stated:


Well, not exactly. What President Barack Obama promised during 2008 was to present during his first year in office immigration reform. And that would have applied to the 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country….He’s going to benefit more than 4 million people in this country, the undocumented parents of US citizens and legal residents. However, that would not include another 6 to 7 million undocumented immigrants in this country.

Yesterday, Ramos wrote in an email to Time magazine that the Latino community had pressured Obama into this action:

It’ll be a triumph for the Latino community…It’ll demonstrate our newfound power. This is not something that we got; this is something that we fought for.

Ramos is an enormously popular media figure in the Latino community. He hosts the news program Noticiero Univision, which draws 2.1 million viewers per night, as well as the Sunday show Al Punto, and Fusion’s America with Jorge Ramos. Politico labeled Ramos “the most popular Hispanic news anchor in America.” Pew Research has labeled him the second-most-popular Hispanic in the United States, after Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. In September 2012, Ramos grilled Obama on immigration, ripping him for failing to move forward an immigration bill: “You promised that, and a promise is a promise. And with all due respect, you didn’t keep that promise.”
