This is a brief and informative book advocating for mass immigration reform. Jorge Ramos does not argue for blanket amnesty, but a very wide-scale program that will provide a path to residence and citizenship for law-abiding immigrants. In the Introduction, which I recommend reading, Ramos specifies the common objectives of those opposed to and those in favor of immigration. His book is well-researched and substantiated.

This is a quick read to give people a possible answer for immigration reform. Mr. Ramos does not want to give undocumented immigrants amnesty, but he is proposing a way to become American citizens. His gives lots of statistics and reports about what kind of person is working here without proper documentation.

Very clearly written, easy to understand and in very simple language (I think I looked up two words in the entire book, and I'm often looking up a couple words a page in Spanish books). Incredibly well structured, did the whole "I'm going to tell you XYZ. X. Y. Z. I just told you XYZ." that good teachers, public speakers, etc, are supposed to do.

I'm giving it 3 stars not because it's a mediocre book, but because of my personal taste - it's just not the kind of book I'd curl up with with a cup of
Profoundly disappointed in the overall content. Ramos portends the downfall of 'white' America, while expounding on the iniquitous ways of the Republican party. One has to wonder, after reading the book, how America ever survived without the virtuous illegal immigrants, most Mexican. In my opinion, this book is a collection of wishful thinking and rhetoric. Ramos is the epitome of the quintessential obsequious Hispanic regarding Obama and the Democratic party.
I asked Jorge Ramos if things would change in the next 10 years and he said "You make the 'change' happen and get back to me in 11 years."
