Description
Jorge Ramos

Tickets on sale January 12, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.

What does it mean to be a Latino immigrant, or just an immigrant, in the Trump era? When Ramos confronted candidate Donald Trump about his controversial remarks on Mexicans, the need for a wall and deportations during a 2015 press conference in Iowa, a member of Trump’s security team threw him out of the room. A seasoned journalist, Ramos took the episode “personally” and uses it to explore his own biography as an immigrant, with the US’s long immigration history as a backdrop, and drawing from the latest data and immigration statistics to respond to Trump’s claims. Ramos takes readers along on his journey through America’s history and his own immigration story in an effort to explain why, after thirty five years in this country, after having left his family and friends to pursue a career in journalism, after having two US-born children, after becoming an Emmy Award-winning journalist and a U.S citizen, and even after fulfilling his American Dream, he still feels like a stranger. The book is dedicated to the Dreamers, who are, in Ramos’ view, “the future of this country.”

Named one of the “World’s 50 Greatest Leaders” in 2016 by Fortune magazine, and largely considered the most influential journalist in the Latino community, Jorge Ramos writes a “manifesto” on the Latino immigrant experience in the United States under the presidency of Donald Trump.

Each ticket includes a copy of the book which you will collect as you enter the auditorium.
