VIDEO: Univision anchor makes claim about caravan migrants

OCTOBER 22, 2018

While reporting on migrant caravan of an estimated 7,000 Central Americans currently marching through Mexico, determined cross into the United States, Univision news anchor Jorge Ramos defended the the migrants in a Fox News interview on Monday, saying they weren’t criminals who had been previously deported from the U.S.

“The vast majority of these people are not criminals, they’re not terrorists, and they’re not even immigrants. They’re refugees,” Ramos declared.

As a group of the migrants walked past him, Ramos asked three if they had ever been to the United States before. When they answered no, he said, “None of them have been in the United States before, so some of them, yes, have been deported,” but he said the vast majority are not criminals.

“As a nation, in the United States, we have to choose what kind of nation we are and treat them with respect. We cannot prejudge them. We cannot say all of them are criminals. We have to listen to them, hear their cases, and if they deserve political asylum, grant it to them,” Ramos said.

Watch his remarks in the video below.

    All the people who want them here should be invited to the border when they arrive and be forced to take at least three of them into their home to support and take care of until they decide to get a job and be able to make it on their own!
