Hi Maria, I heard your interview with Mr. Jorge Ramos, I have to say that I agree and feel that way too, like am immigrant! However, I feel proud of it, but I was born here, in Los Angeles.
Dear Maria, you and your team are great Journalists, my family and I have the fortune to listen to you both ways: via NPR, and vie RADIO BILINGUE. Unfortunately can’t say the same thing about Jorge Ramos, he wastes his talents and air time pushing the “Miami agenda” and instead of really serving the Latino and Immigrant community he wastes precious air time mostly as a mouthpiece to the system just like the English corporative media does, and with “chismes’ against those LatinAmerican Mandatarios that try to do the right thing to protect their sobergnity and their natural resources that belong to their people.
