No doubt you remember Jorge Ramos - the perpetually outraged, virtue-signaling, illegal immigration activist who pretends to be a journalist - from that time President Trump had him thrown out of a press conference. After it happened, Ramos enjoyed a few extra minutes of fame, made the anti-Trump media rounds, then faded back to his previous level of mid-range notoriety. Unfortunately, with the illegal immigration issue still front-and-center, Ramos rears his head every so often.
His responses are predictable in the extreme: Illegal immigrants are wonderful. As long as they’re non-violent their myriad crimes are no big deal, and the U.S. should have something close to an open-border policy regarding Mexico.
In fact, if Ramos is to be believed, crimes like identity theft (and the falsification of state and federal documents) are completely justifiable. Why? Because they’re only committed so that illegals can “benefit our lives.”
From Fox News:
Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos told Chris Wallace on Friday that illegal immigrants coming across the Mexican border “are here to help” American citizens
“They are coming here to benefit our lives,” he said, noting the large amount of undocumented workers in fields such as agriculture.
“The vast majority of undocumented immigrants in this country are not terrorists,” he said, responding to repeated contentions by President Trump that many illegal immigrants are criminals.
Ramos said he has no problem with removing violent criminal illegal immigrants, but disagreed with Wallace when asked about those who use fake ID cards or commit identity theft.
“That is not a violent crime,” Ramos said on “The O’Reilly Factor,” “it is a crime [but] they are coming here to benefit our lives.”
“Many of them use fake drivers’ licenses, why? Because they are working for us,” he said.
This is great news for illegals. Ramos became a U.S. citizen in 2008. That means he has a U.S.-based identity and, judging by his comments, he has no problem with it being stolen. Illegals should feel free to use his Social Security number, address, driver’s license number, license plates, whatever. Stealing this information is a crime, using it is another, but they’re not violent, so Ramos won’t mind if you do it. You are, after all, just trying to benefit his life.
