Jorge Ramos, an award-winning journalist, has emerged as the voice for Hispanic communities across the nation. On March 24th Fortune Magazine listed Jorge Ramos as part of “The Worlds 50 Greatest Leaders” and in Time Magazine, Ramos was listed as part of “The 25 most influential Hispanics in the United States”. As a voice for the Latino communities, Ramos has, on numerous occasions, spoken out against injustices and has defended pro-immigration policies to stop the deportation of immigrants such as: the Dream Act, DAPA, and DACA.
