ABC Democratic Debate Moderator Jorge Ramos Tells Latino Audience: ‘This Is Our Country Too’

Kerry Picket, Washington Examiner, September 12, 2019

Jorge Ramos, an anchor for Univision and a moderator of Wednesday’s Democratic debate in Houston, welcomed the Spanish-speaking audience saying, “Despite the fact that we are facing difficult times, this is our country too.”

The anchor, known for his advocacy for migrants rights at the U.S. southern border, opened the night saying, “We appreciate the opportunity to welcome Latinos across the country and to ask about Latino issues during these challenging times.”


At an event in Dubuque, Iowa, in 2015, he asked Trump a question without being called on, and Trump told Ramos to “sit down” and “go back to Univision.” The Univision anchor was thrown out of the event.
