Jorge Ramos’s expulsion, and the sorry state of Venezuelan media

Review of “Stranger” by Jorge Ramos, “The Making of a Dream” by Laura Wides-Muñoz and “The Line Becomes a River” by Francisco Cantú.
My father is a dreamer. He dreamed of America, of having his children grow up here, even though it meant trading a decent existence in Peru for a harder path. My mother dreamed, too, mainly of returning, which we did, often enough that, in whatever place I was, I dreamed of the other.

Stranger: The Challenges of a Latino Immigrant in the Trump Era.
Ramos, Jorge (Author). Translated by Ezra E. Fitz.
Mar 2018. 208 p. Vintage, paperback, $15. (9780525563792). 070.9.
Ramos, an Emmy-winning journalist, syndicated columnist, and Univision anchor, attained even greater
visibility in August 2015 when presidential candidate Donald Trump had him thrown out of a press
conference in Iowa. Ramos tells the full story of that confrontation by way of launching this timely and
clarifying mix of candid memoir and sharp commentary about “what it means to be a Latino immigrant in
the time of Trump.” Ramos reflects on why, even though he has lived in the U.S. for 35 years and has
become a citizen and a father, he still feels like a stranger. He recounts his difficult decision to leave
Mexico as a fledgling journalist to escape state censorship, asserts journalism’s role as a “public service,”
and expresses his love for the U.S., an “experiment . . . based on the extraordinary process of converting
‘others’ into ‘us.’” Under Trump, this inclusiveness is grievously imperiled. Decrying discrimination and
deportation and the tragic predicament of the courageous Dreamers, he calls for resistance against the
erosion of freedom. Ramos also celebrates Latino lives and finds reasons for optimism.
