What does it mean to be an American? In Stranger: The Challenge of a Latino Immigrant in the Trump Era—dedicated to the nearly 800,000 Dreamers—Emmy-award winning journalist and Univision anchor Jorge Ramos answers this question and more about our current political moment.

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. In Stranger, he uses this experience to explore his own biography as an immigrant from Mexico, with America’s long immigration history as a backdrop, and draws from the latest data and immigration statistics to respond to Trump’s claims.

Ramos has been referred to as the “Walter Cronkite of Latin America” and was named one of the “World’s 50 Greatest Leaders” by Fortune magazine. Book signing to follow.
