white country

Univision anchor Jorge Ramos said in February:

“I’m a proud Latino immigrant here in the United States. You know exactly what is going on here in the US. There are many people who do not want us to be here and who want to create a wall in order to separate us. But you know what, this is also our country. Let me repeat this, our country, not theirs, it’s our country.”

What exactly did Mr. Ramos mean by saying that this is not “their” country? Who’s the “our,” and who’s the “their?”

In an interview with Tucker Carlson, Ramos said that he was talking about people who support the President. “The interesting thing is with the Trump administration and many people who support Donald Trump they think it is their country, that it is a white country,” he told Carlson. “And they are absolutely wrong.” He said that the country doesn’t belong to those people. This is our country, it is yours, it is mine and it is ours,” he said.

He went on to say that 27 years from now, the U.S. will no longer be a white majority country:

“This is not a white country, this is not their country, it is ours, and that is precisely what I’m saying… Look in 2044, the white population will become a minority, it will be a minority-majority country, that is precisely what I’m saying. Latinos, Asians, African-Americans, whites, it is our country, Tucker.”

Basically, if you’re someone who disagrees with Mr. Ramos, then regardless of where you were born, this is not ‘your’ country, and you should have no right to try to shape its immigration policies. But if you do agree with him, then it is your country, and you should have right to dictate immigration policies.
