In a triumphalist editorial opinion, Univision’s Jorge Ramos made deceptive statements concerning the scope of the Supreme Court docket’s controversial ruling on the Deferred Motion for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and additional leveraged the difficulty right into a name to vote on November third.
Watch Ramos’ misleading contradictory editorial in its entirety- additional proof that Univision is little greater than a pro-immigration SuperPAC with a broadcast sign:
BORJA VOCES: We now hyperlink up with Jorge Ramos, who has been speaking about DREAMers for years. Jorge, what do you concentrate on the Supreme Court docket’s determination? What’s your opinion?
JORGE RAMOS: It’s really an historic determination. I keep in mind when 4 younger undocumented children walked from Miami to Washington, D.C. a decade in the past with a purpose to persuade the president that they need to keep right here. And the Supreme Court docket is forceful. In impact, they’re saying: DACA is authorized, DREAMers are legally in the USA, and so they can’t be deported. This appears elementary to me. If at the moment’s 5-Four ruling had been within the reverse, 5-Four towards, proper now we’d be speaking about lots of of 1000’s of younger individuals who can be in worry of being deported and despatched to a rustic they don’t know. So the ruling is prime. Right here additionally, politically, we’re realizing that that is a few ruling by which younger individuals who weren’t born in the USA defeat the President of the USA on the Supreme Court docket. In a tweet, President Donald Trump mentioned that this was a horrible determination that doesn’t mirror the values of the USA. Nonetheless, many would say that the president is incorrect. The Supreme Court docket definitely believes that he was incorrect in his intent -it didn’t happen- however in President Donald Trump’s intention behind ending DACA. After all, this isn’t over, however continues after all within the subsequent election on November third. Again to you.
Opposite to Ramos’ materials misrepresentation of the opinion, the ruling does NOT imply that the Court docket mentioned: “DACA is authorized, DREAMers are legally in the USA, and so they can’t be deported.” Fairly the alternative: in its opinion, the Court docket merely dominated that the Trump Administration didn’t observe the Administrative Process Act of 1946, and laid out a template for lawful rescission of DACA.
Ramos’ breathless editorial primarily turns the DACA ruling right into a cattle prod with which to induce Univision’s viewers to the polls and pull the lever for Joe Biden. The battle for immigration continues, and can proceed in perpetuity. Immigration is central to Univision’s business interests, as we reported in 2016, and rather more so in 2020.
By signing on and defending a patchwork govt order supposed to arrogate what’s a transparent Congressional prerogative, Univision is complicit within the vile politics of immigration. Bear in mind, the way forward for Spanish-language media will depend on a repeatedly damaged immigration system. Jorge Ramos mentioned so himself:
JORGE RAMOS, SENIOR ANCHOR, UNIVISION: I believe the way forward for Spanish-language media is assured for many years, merely, for a quite simple cause: Regardless of of the truth that nearly all of the expansion inside the Hispanic neighborhood is coming from folks being born right here, we nonetheless have one to 2 million immigrants, legally and illegally coming in each single 12 months. Most of them converse Spanish. So, due to this fact, we now have a market that’s rising and rising.
And I believe we will guarantee you that within the subsequent few a long time, you may see Spanish-language media. That is one other subject utterly, however the Latino neighborhood is preserving so many components from their nation of origin, together with Spanish- 9 out of 10 Latinos converse Spanish…converse Spanish at home- that- and we’re doing issues that Italians did not do, or Russians, or Jap Europeans did not do– and the closeness to our nations of origin and the communications that we now have are preserving Spanish-language media alive. And due to that, it is a new energy that different immigrant communities did not have previously.
