Jorge Ramos: Trump Has a Responsibility to 'Absorb' Caravan Migrants into US
Univision anchor believes the United States and not Mexico should take migrants
Mexican-bord Univision anchor Jorge Ramos has lashed out at Trump, saying the United States has a responsibility to "absorb" the thousands of caravan migrants currently trying to cross the border, because the US can do it more "easily" than Mexico.
The reporter claims the US could grant asylum to the Central American caravanners “without significant economic consequences.”
Ramos didn't pile the same pressure on Mexico, however, as he claimed that "many countries in the world" help "people who are displaced."
As Democrats, Hollywood, and the media continue to attack the Trump Administration over the crisis, actor James Woods stunned liberals by asking one simple question: Why can't the caravanners seek asylum in Mexico?
I’m genuinely curious about this #asylum issue. If people from Honduras and Guatemala are simply seeking #refuge from their native lands, and Mexico is offering #sanctuary, why do they need to violate our laws and border? They have already been granted asylum in Mexico, correct?— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) November 26, 2018
“It’s not an invasion. The U.S. can easily absorb these refugees without significant economic consequences,” Ramos claimed in an Instagram post.
"Many countries in the world help the 65 M people who are displaced.
“And the most powerful nation in history also has responsibilities.
"We simply have to do our share.”

This is the image of the U.S. abroad. Tear gas on refugees. (These pictures from Mexican newspapers today.) It’s not an invasion. The U.S. can easily absorb these refugees without significant economic consequences. Many countries in the world help the 65 M people who are displaced. And the most powerful nation in history also has responsibilities. We simply have to do our share.
As Breitbart News has been pointing out, most of the migrants interviewed by mainstream outlets like NBC News, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Associated Press, and CBS News have admitted that they are coming to America primarily for economic reasons and thus not eligible for asylum.
After interviewing numerous migrants in the caravan, CBS Evening News recently pointed out:
“Most tell us they are fleeing extreme poverty, but that’s not a condition for asylum or refugee status in the U.S.”
Even migrants Ramos–who was given a platform on Fox News on multiple occasions to promote his pro-migrant activism–interviewed for his Facebook Watch program admitted that they are going to the United States for economic reasons.
On Monday, San Diego Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott also noted that “the vast majority of those, from what we call the northern triangle, they are economic migrants.”
“They don’t meet the qualifications to get asylum here,” Scott said.
