There is a rage brewing in Latin America.
Aware that they don’t live in real democracies, the people of Venezuela, Nicaragua and Bolivia are taking to the streets. In Chile, Ecuador and Haiti, citizens are angry about social inequality and the lack of economic opportunity.
Five centuries ago, at a spot that is today marked by the intersection of two major streets in downtown Mexico City, the Aztec ruler Montezuma II and the Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés met for the very first time. The extraordinary encounter between the New World and the Old took place on Nov. 8, 1519, and its consequences are still being felt today.
Mexicans are tired of the killing. The massacres earlier this year in Uruapan (where 19 people were killed) and Minatitlán (where 14 died) were a mere fraction of the many deadly tragedies that have shattered the nation.
Why does the Mexican government support the Cuban regime? When Cuban officials arrived in Mexico earlier this month, the minister of foreign affairs, Marcelo Ebrard, greeted them with an enthusiastic tweet: “A very warm welcome to President Miguel Díaz-Canel [and his team]. ...

30 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, there are more walls dividing us than ever before. Why?
Don’t call it Mexican Halloween.
Latin America in Flames.
Every year, two high schools in Brownsville, Texas face-off in one of the most interesting football rivalries in sports. But what makes the game truly unique is what happens to the players off of the field.
Without the aid of the U.S. or Mexican governments, thousands of asylum-seekers are stuck at the southern border left depending on the kindness of strangers, like Team Brownsville, to meet their basic needs.
When José José died, millions of Latinos were singing his songs while the rest of America had no clue one of the greatest singers of all time had just passed away.
Chronicles the rivalry between Lopez and Porter High Schools of Brownsville, Texas. Brownsville sits just two miles from the U.S. border and Mexico's Matamoros, a city..
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos feels like a stranger in his own country. He’s an American citizen who has lived in the United States for 35 years. Dubbed the Walter Cronkite of Spanish language news and voice of the Latino voter, he commands the attention of millions of viewers each night. Yet, he hasn’t had the opportunity to speak with President Trump since being thrown out of a campaign press conference in August 2015. He sits down with Soledad O’Brien to talk about the challenges of being a Latino immigrant in America today, his criticism of both Presidents Trump and Obama, and his optimism for the future of Dreamers.
Univision's Jorge Ramos discusses the alienation of Latino immigrants in the age of President Trump as well as Barack Obama's complicated legacy of deportations in "Stranger."
Jorge Ramos has been called “Star newscaster of Hispanic TV” and “Hispanic TV’s No. 1 correspondent and key to a huge voting bloc” by The Wall Street Journal. Time magazine put him on one of the covers for its “100 most influential people in the world” (2015 issue) and on the list of “the 25 most influential Hispanics in the United States”.
He has interviewed some of the most influential leaders in the world: Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, Harry Reid, Newt Gingrich, John McCain, John Edwards, Al Gore, George Bush Sr., John Kerry, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chávez, Felipe Calderon and dozens of Latin American presidents.
A survey conducted by the Pew Hispanic Center found that Ramos is the second most recognized Latino leader in the country. Latino Leaders magazine chose him as one of “The Ten Most Admired Latinos” and “101 Top Leaders of the Latino Community in the U.S.”
