Jorge Ramos' latest book

Many see Arizona’s immigration law as a potential catalyst for more sweeping, federal immigration reform. Looking beyond the current divisiveness of SB1070, Univision political anchor and Mexican immigrant Jorge Ramos makes the case for a pragmatic and politically achievable solution to a currently “cruel and capricious system that doesn’t work, wastes billions of dollars, and which stands in direct opposition to our national principles.” Patt continues our immigration series leading up to the scheduled implementation of Arizona’s SB 1070 next Thursday, July 29th with a man Time magazine calls one of “the 25 most influential Hispanics in the United States.”

Guest:

Jorge Ramos, Emmy Award winning journalist, syndicated columnist; Ramos anchors the nightly news, “Noticiero Univision,” and hosts Al Punto, a weekly political show on Univision, the country’s largest Spanish-language television network. His latest book is A Country for All: An Immigrant Manifesto
