Jorge Ramos Whines: ‘This Is Not What Biden Promised’

It is a tale as predictable as the Sun rising in the East: Univision anchor Jorge Ramos has turned on President Joe Biden for being insufficiently hospitable towards the waves of migrants presently rushing the nation’s Southern border.

Here’s our periodic reminder that Ramos remains the sole national anchor with a syndicated column, this time succinctly titled “This Is Not What Biden Promised”:

Just as the president has failed in his well intentioned effort toward a “fair, orderly, and humane immigration system,” his drive to get Congress to approve an immigration reform that would legalize the majority of the 10 million undocumented immigrants in the United States has collapsed. The Senate lacks the 60 votes required to pass an immigration reform bill or the political will and support to end the filibuster that would have allowed passage of a new law on immigration with only 50 votes.

The plan to legalize Dreamers, farm workers and other essential workers by navigating the complex budget reconciliation process in Congress was also a failure. The Senate’s parliamentarian has twice said “No.” And Democrats do not dare say no to the parliamentarian.

Biden is now in a difficult position. None of his campaign promises on immigration – with the exception of Temporary Protective Status for Venezuelans – have been met.

Democrats hold the White House today and control both Congress’ chambers. Their reputation for promising great things but delivering very little is well-known. Since 1986 we have heard their promises, but millions remain undocumented. This will continue if Biden and Democrats fail to do anything dramatic and impactful for Hispanic voters in 2022 or 2024.

Ramos has a mad obsession with all things. When Quinnipiac’s recent poll revealed that 69% of Hispanics were dissatisfied with Biden’s handling of the border crisis, I warned that a significant portion of that figure consisted of people mad that the border has not been flung wide open enough, and Ramos’ column exemplifies that. You may recall how Ramos, Biden, and others fought over Biden’s vote for the Secure Fence Act of 2006.



RAMOS: You voted in 2006 for a border fence with Mexico. Is that not the same as with President Trump’s border wall? 

BIDEN: We’re talking about a fence versus a wall that he wants to build from sea to shining sea.

RAMOS: However, you wanted a Wall. RAMOS: But you wanted a wall. 

BIDEN- I voted, yes. But it was only a tiny portion. It wasn’t- look, there are certain places where it makes sense…

RAMOS: It’s part of the concept, Mr. Vice President. It’s the idea of building a wall. 

BIDEN: The con… you mean if you build any wall anywhere, including at points of legal embarcation that….that’s the same as what this guy is doing? C’mon, Jorge.

RAMOS: I’m asking you, I’m just asking you, what’s the…

BIDEN: You know what you’re asking me- you’re not making an honest comparison.

RAMOS: So, you voted for a fencing and Trump also wants one.

BIDEN: No, he wants to spend billions of dollars on it…

RAMOS: He does. He does.

To be exact, Biden had never said he would send a bill directly to Congress, although he did. The bill was already dead when he arrived. But Latino media had deeply invested itself in a narrative of radical change to our nation’s immigration policy as a result of Biden’s election. Now, the border crisis and both the demise of Biden’s Immigration Bill and his scheme to insert immigration reform into other legislation via reconciliation (which Ramos gave oxygen to shortly after Biden became president) make Latino activists look absurd. 

Make sure you read all of the column. Ramos calls Biden now as evil as Trump. Remember why Ramos, along with the other Latino activists media, are so invested in porous borders: 

JORGE RAMOS SENIOR ACHIEVER, UNIVISION – I believe that the future spanish-language media can be guaranteed for many years, for one simple reason. Even though the Hispanic community has seen a lot of growth, most of it is due to people who were born in the country, there are still one-to two million illegal and legal immigrants coming into the country every year. Many of these people speak Spanish. So, therefore, we have a market that is growing and growing.

We can guarantee that Spanish-language media will be available in the coming decades. But that is another subject entirely. However, Latinos are keeping many elements from their countries of origin. For example, 9 out of 10 Latinos know Spanish…speak Spanish at the home. We’re doing things the Italians and Russians did not do. Our closeness with our country and the good communications we have help keep Spanish-language content alive. This gives it a power other immigrant groups didn’t enjoy in the past.
