Welcome to the newest edition of The Why. “Why is Jorge Ramos wrong?” Good question. (It’s another no nonsense piece so let’s get to it.)
Recently Republican presidential candidate and businessman Donald Trump had a sparring match with Univision’s Jorge Ramos. Our guest speaker, Mary Ramirez, contributor to The Blaze, provides some background:
“Before his now-infamous removal from Trump’s event, Ramos recorded a video analysis of the GOP presidential candidate’s immigration plan, claiming it ‘would create a massive human rights violation’ for seeking to deport those here illegally.”
Ramos says of Trump: “It seems that he wants to get in the business of deporting babies, of course, by denying citizenship rights to the children of undocumented immigrants in this country.”
Referencing illegal aliens who have children in the US Ramos asks: “Can you imagine separating families? Breaking up families?”
For Ramos to be right about deportation breaking up families one must assume that the illegal alien parents would actually leave their kids behind. Who said the illegal aliens couldn’t take their kids with them? No one.
Ramos also says that Trump “might not like it, but the Constitution says otherwise. The last time I checked, the 14th Amendment read that ‘all persons born in the United States are citizens of the United States.”
Ramirez confirms a correction: “For the record, Mr. Ramos, the part you referenced actually reads:
“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.”
How is “making people answer for their indiscretions (through deportation) a “massive human rights violation”? Ramirez agrees that folks are getting too “fast and loose with the term ‘human right’.”
She also agrees some folks are too quick to cry “bigotry” or “racism” or “injustice” whenever “those purported human rights aren’t supposedly recognized.” She confirms that some folks obscure the truth claiming it’s “racist and hateful to refer to children—who are used by their parents as an excuse to continue breaking the law—as ‘anchors’.”
The fact is that just because you want something because it works for you does not make it “a human right.” Ramirez agrees: “Wanting something because it’s beneficial to you doesn’t make it a human right.”
She adds: “Just because the United States is the dream of many does not mean that every single person who wants to come here is entitled to come here by whatever means they choose. They are certainly not entitled to break the law and have that lawlessness protected by a contorted definition of a ‘human right’.”
Ramirez agrees lawlessness is not “a human right.” She reports: “Ramos was at Donald Trump’s press conference, which means Trump gets to make the rules. Trump hadn’t called on him, yet Ramos shouted out his statements anyway—and then claimed he’s entitled to a ‘right’ to ask a question because he’s a ‘reporter, an immigrant, a senior citizen’.”
Ramos’ bad behavior at Trump’s conference was ironic and illustrated the position Ramos advocates: “claiming a right to something simply because he wants it.”
