Jorge Ramos: Sacrifice Americans’ Rights to Get an Amnesty for Illegals

Democrats should aid illegal migrants by taking the “radical” step of ending filibuster protections for political minorities in the United States, according to Jorge Ramos, the Mexican-born, pro-migration, Spanish-language TV anchor.

“Democrats still lack the votes to overturn the current Senate rules, which effectively require proponents of most bills to muster 60-vote supermajorities to advance them,” Ramos declared in the June 4 edition of the New York Times. The 60-vote rule in the 100-member Senate helps 330 million Americans preserve their rights by forcing compromises from powerful majorities in Congress.

Ramos demanded:

End the minority party’s power to stall legislation — the filibuster — and pass very concrete laws for the benefit of Dreamers and migrant farm workers through a procedural budget shortcut called reconciliation. Both issues are politically aggressive and would face huge Republican opposition. But it’s about time we made radical decisions to protect the lives of millions of immigrants like [Honduran economic migrant] María [Mejía].

President Biden, the clock is ticking. Please don’t wait much longer. We can’t afford to repeat the mistakes of the past.
