Columna Jorge Ramos: An Immigrant’s Son

He has likened Mexican immigrants to rapists and criminals. He wants to ban most people from six Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. During his campaign, he said he could deport 11 million undocumented residents …

My son Nicolas is leaving home, and I don’t know what I’m going to do. I’ve spent more than 19 years with this kid, teenager, man. But the time has come for him to pack up for college, and I’m dreading how much I will miss him. He’s ready to take this next step in life. He’s always known that …

Columna de Jorge Ramos: Dr. Q’s Hands

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The brain is pulsating in front of me — I never imagined that the brain could pulsate as the heart does. It’s beige, almost light brown. Purple veins and arteries sprawl like a spider web. I can’t turn my eyes away. If the soul exists, it resides here. The brain is in plain sight. A little over …

The Trouble With Exes

Our exes can be a headache. They wield a lot of power over us; some just can’t get used to taking a backseat to our current relationships, and do everything they can to grab our attention. I’m talking, specifically, about the most troublesome of exes: ex-presidents. Yes, there are former presidents who simply disappear from the headlines and public life …

A Fraud Foretold in Mexico

By Jorge Ramos It’s incredible that, almost 30 years after the presidential election of 1988, many “Priistas” (or members of the ruling Revolutionary Institutional Party, or PRI) in Mexico still won’t acknowledge the electoral fraud that occurred that year. Actually, the PRI refuses to recognize that fraud has occurred in every presidential election from 1929 to 1994 — the era …

Living in the Jungle

By Jorge Ramos These days, almost all of us live in a jungle. And many of us are trapped there by choice — like birds in an open cage who wouldn’t even consider flying away. The particular jungle I’m referring to is, of course, the internet — particularly Twitter, Facebook and all the other apps and platforms that keep us …

Jorge Ramos : The Last Supper

TULUM, Quintana Roo, Mexico — I’ve never had a meal like this, and may never taste its equal again. It was, simply put, a one-of-a-kind experience that may be impossible to repeat. So let me share it with you the only way I can: through words. The celebrated chef René Redzepi, from Copenhagen’s Noma — a restaurant that leading food …

Juan Pablo’s Venezuela

By Jorge Ramos Have you ever seen a tear gas canister? Some resemble large bullets, about 2 centimeters in diameter, metallic, with a sharp point. Authorities shoot them toward empty spots in a crowd; the canisters then explode and spew a cloud of noxious gas. In late April, Venezuelan police were trying to disperse crowds in Caracas who were demonstrating …

Two Years of Trump

By Jorge Ramos Two years ago, many Americans thought it implausible that a candidate with racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-environmental ideas would ever be elected president. But when it comes to Donald Trump, we were wrong. And we’ve been wrong repeatedly. On June 16, 2015, Trump officially launched his presidential bid in New York, famously saying about Latin American immigrants: …

How to Remove a President

One of the hardest things to do — anywhere — is remove a president from office. When a president assumes power, he inherits a complex system that’s in place mainly to protect him, physically and legally. Once in office, he has an army, spies, lawyers, bureaucrats and a lot of resources to defend him. This is why ousting the beleaguered …
