Jorge Ramos, who is the senior anchor for Univision, announced on Friday during the Premios Lo Nuestro, or “Our Awards,” that America belongs to the Latino migrants and told his Spanish-speaking audience that “it is our country, not theirs.”
Ramos, who usually talks about togetherness and diversity, did an about face and instead talked of conquest. He said the there was nothing the country could do about is because America is “not their” county and that Latinos “are not going to leave.”
“I am an immigrant, just like many of you,” Ramos said in Spanish. “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,” he said.
“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,” he continued. “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,” he added.
