The author of “Stranger: The Challenge of a Latino Immigrant in the Trump Era” sat down Monday with CNN’s Anderson Cooper when the subject turned to the White House.
“There’s nothing really they can do against this incredible demographic revolution,” Mr. Ramos said. “And in 2044, everyone is going to be a minority. And then I think President Trump represents those who are trying to revert that trend, and he doesn’t say it. But he would like — it seems to me, that’s his vision, just to have America look like him. Again, that’s going to be impossible.”
Mr. Cooper shared similar sentiments during the segment and said that he considers it an “exciting transformation” that “whites will not be the majority.”
“Clearly there’s, you know, among white supremacists, white nationalists, that is viewed as a horrific event,” the “Anderson Cooper 360” host said.
Mr. Ramos then referenced a study by the National Academy of Sciences to frame increased border security as bad economics.
“All immigrants, both legal and undocumented, contribute more than $2 billion a year to the economy of this country. That’s what we call ‘the immigrant surplus.’ The Trump administration is not telling you that.”
“Donald Trump is the most anti-immigrant President in the last 70 years,” says Univision anchor Jorge Ramos on news the WH could dramatically limit the number of legal immigrants allowed to enter and stay in the US by making it easier to reject green card and visa applications. pic.twitter.com/YUBA3HzGM8— Anderson Cooper 360° (@AC360) August 13, 2019
