The Challenge of a Latino Immigrant Today
Jorge Ramos - Writer and Journalist; Winner of 10 Emmy awards

Evening Details

7:00 PM Program and Book-Signing - Texas Theatre
Post Reception - Mercado369

During the presidential campaign, no one was more fearless in questioning Donald Trump than Jorge Ramos. His unflinching reporting on U.S. immigration policy has made Ramos a target for President Trump, and a champion for the 55 million Latinos living in the United States—especially the 11 million who are undocumented. 

Known as the “voice of the voiceless,” Ramos immigrated to the United States as a student in 1983. Today, he is the widely trusted and influential anchor for Univision—with more than two million nightly viewers. 

Ramos’ work has earned him the coveted Walter Cronkite award for excellence in political journalism, as well as numerous Emmy awards. Time magazine has heralded him as one of the “100 most influential people in the world” and one of “the 25 most influential Hispanics in the United States.”

Now Ramos is making headlines again with his thirteenth book—Stranger: The Challenge of a Latino Immigrant in the Trump Era. Since coming to the U.S., Ramos has seen the nation’s Latino population grow from 15 million to 55 million. With more than 100 million Latinos projected to live in the U.S. by 2050, Ramos reveals how their growing political power will play a role in America’s future
