By Andy Orrock VINE VOICE on July 7, 2005
Format: Paperback
Univision national anchor Jorge Ramos has written an impressive piece of scholarship with "The Latino Wave," his timely look at how the current wave of immigration from Latin America is changing the face of politics in America.

I give Ramos major credit for his industriousness: he obviously conceived and pieced together the book while reporting on the 2004 presidential election for Univision. In doing so, he really proves that he's no mere talking head. To the contrary, there are some real heady, well-thought out policy ideas in 'Wave.' For example, Ramos concludes his book by laying out 10 recommendations for politicians to "understand the Hispanic experience and improve the lives of Latinos." One of those points is "Make Latin America a Prominent Part of US Foreign Policy." At this point in the book, Ramos has detailed quite effectively the short shrift that Latin American politics are given by our leaders, the price to be paid (and will be paid) for that neglect, and how this oversight infuriates Latinos in this country.

Ramos also has his finger right on the pulse of the hidden secret of immigrant labor: while many politicians publicly denounce its impact, the truth is that immigrant labor pays taxes and FICA and thereby is a critical cog in shoring up our Baby Boomers' expectations of Social Security benefits. As one expert is quoted as saying, because of the size of the Baby Boomer generation compared to our 'indigenous' workforce, the US economy is more dependent on immigrant labor now than at any point in the last 100 years.

Jorge Ramos' insightful work is definitely worth your time.

No one should buy this book without first researching Ramos.

Like Luis Gutierrez or Gil Cedillo, he always refers to illegal foreign invaders as 'immigrants', blames America for hiring them, and then says that the USA is responsible for millions of illegal aliens, rather than the aliens themselves. He belongs to the BLATANTLY RACIST Latinos who think they are entitled to disrespect American laws, language and culture, and brings nothing but sound-bites to his shows: I.E: He started an interview with American D.A. King with this question: "Why do you hate immigrants?"

Only the most deluded, racist criminals insist on blurring the line between legal immigrants and illegal aliens, when this country welcomes over a MILLION LEGAL IMMIGRANTS every year, more than every other country on the face of the earth, COMBINED!

It's time to disavow the idiotic P.C. notion that only white males can be racists... The southern invasion proves otherwise.
