Immigrants in the United States are on the center of what makes this nation the main filthy rich and visionary on the planet. Writing from his personal heartfelt point of view as an immigrant, Jorge Ramos, one of many world’s hottest and well-respected Spanish-language tv information broadcasters, listens to and explores tales of dozens of immigrants who made up our minds to alter their lives and threat every thing -- households, jobs, background, and their very own tradition -- for you to pursue a greater, freer, and opportunity-filled destiny within the usa. In his famously transparent voice, Jorge Ramos brings to existence the stories of people from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic, between different international locations, and explains why they first immigrated, what their desires are, how they care for American racism, and what they suspect their destiny in the USA will carry for them and their children.

From the Vieques controversy to the "Spanglish" phenomenon to the explosion of Latino creativity within the arts, Ramos exhibits that there's a new face in the US -- one whose shades and international locations of beginning are as varied because the nation it has followed as home.
