Jorge Ramos- “Illegal Immigrants Should Have Same Rights as Americans”

By JAVIER MANJARRES

jorgeUnivision news anchor Jorge Ramos was recently interviewed on ABC News and opined that illegal immigrants deserve the same rights that U.S. citizens have simply because they work the jobs that American economy needs to survive.

We gave Ramos’ highly questionable claim the scrubbing that it deserved  earlier this week in the first part of our coverage of Ramos’ interview with ABC. (American Lives Depend on Illegal Immigrants)

 What we had this morning for breakfast was harvested by immigrants, the houses and apartments where we live  were built by undocumented immigrants, whenever we go to a restaurant or to a Hospital, or to a hotel, we are being served by undocumented immigrants.-Jorge Ramos

Ramos, who is originally from Mexico, added that he would doesn’t want to live in the U.S. because “some people have privileges and rights” while the 11 million illegal immigrants have none.

 “I don’t want to live in a country in which some people have privileges and rights an then you have 11 million people who have no rights whatsoever”-Jorge Ramos


But what we find very peculiar about Ramos and many in the pro-amnesty lobby is their recent change in position. Ramos and others have always pushed for full amnesty for illegal immigrants, but now they’re siding with the bipartisan effort in the U.S. Senate led by Senator Marco Rubio to put in place strict rules that govern illegal immigrants on their path to citizenship.

Liberals instinctively know that once you give an inch on an issue, it sets the stage for more concessions- pro-amnesty supporters want to clear a more direct path for citizenship for illegal immigrants in hopes that it would open up the floodgates of litigation- it’s their ultimate goal.

    I think their freedoms should be based on the amount of freedom their own country would provide. Slip across the border into Mexico and see what happens. Demand free medical care, a place to live and food stamps. See how far it get’s you.

    I second that thought

    Mr. Ramos should go back to his home country and try to change the system there so the Mexican people can enjoy the same rights as we have in this country. I grew up on the Texas border and saw first hand how their system was far less superior than the U.S. side. He has found a home in our country but his heart is in Mexico. Now is the time for all good illegal immigrants to go home and work within their system to allow their people to prosper and leave us alone.

    The fundimental fact that these people…from what ever country they came from are not legal US citizens… like the other imigrants that started/created/shaped/defended this country did so via legal means. Now we have some imigrants that want to change the fabric of what has been in place for hundreds of years. No other country would allow this type of parasitic demise to continue and mask it as some form of human rights issue. We need new leadership in Washington DC from the top down, it is clear that our current system is not in the best interest for US citizens but for a global group’s & corporation’s. You should be ashamed of yourselves to allow this to happen to this country we call these United States of America…imagine what would happen to all involved if they did not have the tax system at there disposal to exploite and abuse.

    I have never heard of a country that supports those who break through their borders and treat them as one of its citizens. NEVER! In France you overstep your visa, they come right away for you. They want to give amnesty to these people and they want to take your guns away. You voice your opinion and they call you a racist. I don’t believe in illegal immigration, and I’m called every name under the sun.”How can I forget my people” they say. What is it about the word “illegal” that is just not understood by the Left? Maybe it is their objective to destroy this country and create some nightmarish utopia.

    All of you guys should read more about US and Latin America History. You would be surprised of the things you would learn about US involvement in Latin America.
    Learn about United Fruit Co.
    CIA involvement in the overthrowing of presidents in Latin America, the killing and disappearances of thousands of people.
    US has at some point of history intervene in Latin American politics and economic affairs and that is the main reason illegal and legal immigrants are here today.
    It is our right to be here because at some point this was Mexican territory.
    Learn Some History!!!!

    Pack you bags Jorge Ramos. Illegal aliens cost the American Taxpayer way more than they contribute. when you come into America illegally you are a criminal. If the 20 million illegals in this country went come and tried to make a their country a better place that might generate some respect. Did you know that right now our tax dollars are supporting 3.3 million a day to keep violent illegals in prison. Not to mention free health care, prescriptions, and a lot of right that legal American citizens don’t have. Granting rights to illegals is a slap in the face to all those immigrants who came to this county legally.
