another masker in the unitedstates.
this time, it happened in atrain yard in san jose,
california.nine people died before the
shooter died by suicide.this is how the mayor reacted.
>> it is obvious theres a lotof work to be done to help our
families.and a lot of work to prevent
this tragedy in the future.>> this is the most recent in a
large list of shootings.in 2020, there were over 600
mass shootings.until last wednesday, there have
been over -- there have been 232mass shootings, including two in
san jose.a man who has been pressuring
for a long time so thatsomething can be done is manuel
oliver.his son died in the parkland,
florida shooting.thank you for being here.
>> thanks to you.>> are you not frustrated?
we have been talking about thisfor three years.
>> i am very frustrated but notjust because of this shooting.
i live in a constant state offrustration because it does not
just happen every day, there aremany victims who lose their
lives.since walking --
since joaquin was killed,120,000 people have died because
of gun violence.>> 120 thousand k people say
that, if things changepolitically -- i mean,
california has some of thestrictest gun laws, and nine
people were killed.is that the way to enact change?
>> no.things like this can happen --
if the states have differencesin how they -- differences in
their laws, people can cross theborder and bring back weapons,
and buy them legally, because weare not talking about something
happening in a black market orlegally.
this is a crime that is backedup i the system -- by the
system.>> you were telling me a while
ago that you perhaps were naïvewhen it came to politicians.
you thought politicians wouldhelp, but nothing happened.
>> many people believe, and ivelearned, it is a bit naïve to
think that politicians willsolve this, because they have
not done it in decades.>> why do it now?
>> why do it now -- we have hada red house, blue house, red
senators, blue senators, andthere has never been a
difference in the desire tosolve the problem.
there are many votes in thebalance, a lot of power in the
balance.we must approach it from a
social point of view rather thana political one.
>> you are comparing thepandemic and what we have
experienced because of gunviolence.
what do they have in common?>> the pandemic affected every
country.and immediately, different
industries, different people insociety got together to solve
the problem.and we did it.
it was affecting the lives ofamericans and the economy of
this country.in terms of firearms, a lot of
lives are lost.if we were able to prepare some
kind of a vaccine -- obviously,it would not actually be a
vaccine -- but regulationsregarding the acquisition of
weapons, it would be a priorityfor us to resolve this.
but it is not.it is not because of the
political interest.it does not affect the country
financially.that is the difference between
this and the pandemic.it is going to take a while.
>> what have you learned?>> i have learned this will not
be solved in two years.this will be solved by a
generation that is growing.>> it is not my generation or
yours?>> know, the one that will take
control in the next 10 years.in those 10 years, we have to
send a coherent message that isdifferent and does not idolize
weapons as a way of being free.that tendency to think that we
are free because we have accessto firearms is toxic.
we need to change that message.>> let me end with this.
how are you?how these last years been for
you?>> the pain is the same, ok?
that does not change.my son is not with me.
he will not be with me until ijoin him.
but patricia and i are verystrong.
like i said a while back, we arewilling to fight for this until
the last day of our lives.>> that is what it is about.
>> yes, sir.>> thank you for being here.
>> thank you.>> when we return, there is
chaos in nicaragua.also, do you believe in ufos?
>> i do not think it shouldterrestrials exist, because
there has never been evidence ofthat.
>> the government is about topublish a report on the topic.
we invite someone who doesbelieve and a skeptic.
♪>> and carlos rivera has sung
with rafael mancenaro, robertocases were
never reported.we return now to jorge ramos.
♪>> in nicaragua, the woman most
likely to defeat daniel ortegain novembers presidential
elections is being accused ofmoney laundering by ortegas
government.cristiana chamorro says the
acquisitions are not true andthey are a way of preventing the
elections.he has been -- daniel ortega has
been in office since 2007.we invited chamorro to the
program so she could tell herside of the story.
thank you for being here.why is the daniel ortega
administration accusing you ofmoney laundering?
>> ortega is afraid of thiswoman who has said yes to
nicaragua, who has said yes, iam ready to serve nicaraguans,
and he has seen that, throughthis woman, we can defeat him in
the ballot boxes on november 7.he has created a political trial
not just against me but againstjournalists and others.
he is trying to intimidatenicaraguans so they will not
vote and so that he can retainpower a few more years.
>> you think that the objectiveis to prevent your participating
in the elections in november?>> not just me.
he is intimidating everyone.it affects me, it affects my
followers, but it also affectsnicaraguans who have placed
their trust in me.i am at the top of the polls,
because i have said yes, i wantto serve, and i want to return
democracy and freedom tonicaragua.
i want to return to nicaragua afuture of progress and
opportunities.so he is terrorized by this.
he is afraid of the unity.coming together around crisit
tiana.>> let me tell you what they are
saying.they are saying there is an
investigation into moneylaundering because they found
serious financialinconsistencies between reports
that were presented and money atthe violeta barrios de chamorro
foundation.what is this discrepancy about?
>> every year, we have reportsand have received certifications
we have audits.there is an audit that says
there is no money laundering.this is a fabrication.
they are trying to createcharges where none exist.
here, there is no crime.here, what we have is a
political trial.they are trying to intimidate
me, and not just me but othernicaraguans.
not only that, they want tosuppress freedom of expression.
they want to scare the freepress.
the violeta chamorro foundation,for the last 10 years, has been
backing up institutions so thatpeople can move to the digital
transition.its behind modernization in
journalism.they are at the frontlines of
combat, and they have not backdown.
so what the administration wantsto do is silence that press.
they confiscated some of theirtools, but that press continues,
working creatively tocommunicate using technology.
>> you said that the criminalaccusation against you was
created by the dictatorship.daniel ortega insists he was
elected democratically.how is he a dictator?
>> they were elected in, butsince then, in every one of the
following elections, they havecommitted electoral fraud.
and they are preparing electoralfraud the next election on
november 7.they no longer govern.
the ortega administration istotally illegitimate after the
masker in 2008 and therepression.
all he does is repress.his only strength lies in the
armed forces.and ive gotta say something to
you, jorge.this is also retaliation against
the legacy of violeta chamorro.what the foundation did was take
that legacy and put it to workfor nicaraguans, and he cannot
stand that memory, that a woman,in 1990 the with the people of
nicaragua, defeated him in thepolls.
that is what he is afraid of.>> we will see if history
repeats itself.cristiana chamorro from -- there
are several journalists beingthreatened.
according to reporters, this isa campaign of repression against
the independent journalists.one of these journalists is
maria delgado, the correspondentfor univision in managua.
lets get to the point.why were you summoned by the
government?>> we are not quite sure why the
attorney general is callingabout 10 journalists or why they
are investigating this moneylaundering.
we have had several dates, butwe have not been told much.
>> you are called as a witness.--
we were called as a witness thefirst time we arrived, we were
called as witnesses, and wecouldnt come with our
attorneys, so we said no.if we could not enter with our
attorney, then it is difficultfor us to go in without an
attorney, so we said, no, wewould not testify under those
circumstances.we were told that if we were not
going to testify, we would beaccused.
>> what is the ortega governmentdoing this?
is it because of the elections?>> since 2008, since the
protests of 2008, they began afrontal attack against
independent press, beginningwith the assassination of angel
during social protests, socialprotests that daniels
government says is a coupattempt, but no international
organization has seen that.since then, there has been an
attack on the independent press,which has been denouncing the
systematic oppression of humanrights in this country, and the
government denies this.>> what is the role of
independent journalists innicaragua, what should they do?
>> on the role of independentjournalists in nicaragua is to
report on what is happening innicaragua.
as you have always said, we arehere to inform.
and we want to inform people onevery side.
that is also part of thefrustration.
we do not have access to thegovernmental side since daniel
ortega return to power.we have requested interviews.
>> we have no access to thatinformation, public information
is done by rosario murillo.since 2008, journalists have had
to listen to her for over anhour to get an official version.
>> maria lily, thank you forbeing here.
it is important that you knowand we say this publicly that
you are not alone.>> thank you very much.
i appreciate all the support ireceived from the univision
network, and we are here tocontinue informing on what is
happening in nicaragua.>> one last thing.
our invitation to interviewdaniel ortega and his wife,
rosario murillo, still stands.we have been trying to interview
them for years.meanwhile, protests continue in
colombia.what does senator gustavo petro
think?but you janet -- patricia janiot
spoke with him.>> the country is in a critical
situation after one month ofprotests.
what do you think will happen?where do you think the situation
will take us, what will theconsequences be?
>> i think that, in the longterm, what is going to happen in
the country is there will be anew social pact.
we do not need a newconstitution.
in truth, the currentconstitution can cover us.
but it is a new social pact.we are talking about one of the
most unequal countries on earthin the last few years.
there is an inequality andpoverty that has been made worse
by the current administration.>> if you were president of
columbia --colombia, howwould you solve the national
strike?what agreement would you reach?
>> i think colombians haverealized there needs to be a
social pact for businesses toeven exist in this country, and
that social pact has some veryclear objectives, in my opinion.
it is to change the socialpolitics of the last 20 years.
social politics that imitate thepolitics of chile, and you know
what happened in chile, thathave to do with what they call,
in the neoliberal world, thebuilding of markets, where there
should be rights, like healthcare, education, including
dignifying work.>> do you think this was too
much for the country?>> this goes back a long time.
ivan duque does not really knowwhat colombia is.
he was raised in washington.he had an easy time in
washington as a master ofceremonies for cultural
activities at the world bank.but he does not understand
colombia.what he has done is replace the
old administration with his own.>> what do you say to people who
think you are trying to takeelectoral advantage to the
national strike and protestbecause you think this chaos
benefits you?you are accused of fanning the
flames.>> it is absolutely the
opposite.>> even the president says that.
>> who benefits from theviolence in colombia?
as has been the case for thelast 20 years, in the 21st
century, those who benefit fromfear in society are the people
who support the alvaro uribeproject.
>> thank you.you can go to the univision
facebook page.when we return, do you believe
in extraterrestrials?there have been ufos scene.
we will talk about that.and what do experts say about
vaccinating our children?>> what do you think about
unidentified flying objects,ufos?
>> for me, it is somethingunknown, because ive never
actually seen them.>> they do not exist in my
opinion, right?that many people say they do.
no one has concrete evidence.>> whatever they see, they
immediately say that is a ufoarea that is alive.
>> what do you think?next month, the u.s. government
will publish a report on ufos,unidentified flying objects.
the secretary of defense willcreate a report on what is now
called unidentified aerialphenomenon.
they said we have objects flyingover military installations.
we do not know what that is.it could be a foreign enemy.
today, we will talk about ufos.we decided we would speak with
luis el azando.he work in the pentagon in a
division that studied ufos.thank you for talking with us.
>> thank you for having me.>> i have been a journalist for
years, and this is the firstinterview what i have discussed
ufos.what has changed?
>> are they what has changed isthe government finally will be
honest with the american public.it will have a sincere
conversation on the topic.for a long time, it was a
forbidden topic.it was a plate for this topic,
but the united states governmenthas decided to be more
transparent to its citizens.the media are not realizing this
is a serious topic.>> i was reading the articles on
you.i want to know, what is the
precise moment you began tobelieve that something strange
was happening?>> yes, early on when i joined
the program known as a.t.a.t.i.pin 2008, this was not only real,
could be a national securityproblem.
so i quickly realize this topicneeded to be treated with
respect.>> you worked with a seeker
program for the pentagon,assigned to study ufos.
what does the government knowabout this?
>> well, what the u.s.government knows is that there
are technological capacitiesthat are beyond our own.
these are capabilities thatinclude instantaneous
acceleration, being able totravel through different media.
i think you can even callsomething antigravity, to be
able to defy gravity.all these things that we
associate with aircraft, thesethings do not abide by that, and
they are operating in ourairspace.
>> how do you know we are nottalking about, for instance, a
russian craft or chinese craft?>> well, we dont, sir, with all
do respect.they may well be a superior
technological advancement fromour adversaries.
but that would not be a goodand.
the fact that a country couldadvance so much.
we have known about it forseveral decades, and they did
not want to talk about this.this probably would be an even
bigger national security problemif this technology does belong
to our rivals.>> what you just mentioned is
very similar to what senatormarco said about the possibility
that someone or another countrymight be spying on us.
do you think that what thesenator said helps?
>> i think senator marco rubioscomment is brave.
he is a senior public official.the fact that he wants to speak
publicly about this says a lot.hopefully, more people in our
government will say the samething he is saying.
i do think he is looking at thisfrom a national security
perspective.until we know what these are, we
need to think that these are athreat to national security,
especially because they canoperate without impunity in the
american airspace.>> we know that you spent years
studying this phenomena, butwhat have you personally seen?
>> at this point, sir, i am notgoing to respond to your
question, only because i do notwant my own personal observation
to affect the compilation ofinformation.
>> i understand that, what ismost important in this case, is
data.but what are we talking about
here?simply unidentified flying
objects, or are we talking aboutthe possibility that there may
be beings from other planets?>> yes and yes.
the bottom line is that wesimply do not know what we are
facing.we need to gather this
information.what we do know is these things
surpassed anything we have.we are pretty certain that no
other foreign government can dothis.
i think we need to keep an openmind in this conversation, so
that the facts can dictate whatto do.
my job is very simple.my job is to gather the evidence
and present that to the jury, inthis case you and your viewers.
what i think that not matter.what matters -- what i think
does not matter pier 1 mattersis what you and your audience
think.>> thank you for speaking with
us.>> my pleasure.
>> we also need the point ofview of a skeptic.
not everyone thinks these ufosare real.
a journalist and author thingsthere are logical explanations
for all of this.luis alfonso, thank you for
being here.you wrote a book called the
danger of believing.everything indicates that the
united states government isabout to acknowledge ufos
exists.where is your doubt?
>> ufos have always existed.they are unidentified flying
objects.i do not think that the u.s.
government is going toacknowledge anything else.
they have a number of videos onunidentified aerial phenomenon.
a more neutral nomenclature.now we are talking about
something completely different.we are not talking about that
big myth from the 1950s andspaceships.
>> i am sure you have seen thesame videos that we have seen.
they seem real.>> the videos are real.
the pentagon acknowledged, inaugust of last year, that these
videos had not been manipulated.the problem we have with these
videos is they tell us they areunexplainable and people who say
they are extra terrestrials andanalysts who know about video
techniques, when the analystssay there is nothing here that
is on a cleanable, theyunderstand a code that i cannot
understand.i have to trust the experts.
>> what proof would convinceyou?
>> there is a simple evidence.for instance, a fragment of
metal.an alloy that does not exist on
earth.we have not seen anything like
that.another piece of evidence that
could convince us, all thesepeople who say they have contact
with extraterrestrials, thatextraterrestrial tell us
something we do not know ashumans.
for instance, the cure tocancer, the cure to aids, or if
they gave to us clean energy tocombat climate change.
we need evidence.but a bit of metal made of
metal that cant be created inthe united states would help.
but i think what the pentagon isworried about is logical.
they are afraid that, behindthese ufos, there may be drones
spying on the united states.>> so your conclusion is there
are objects we cannot identify.but to jump from there to the
conclusion that it is regardingextraterrestrials or objects
coming from other universes orplanets is completely false?
>> yes, exactly.two things.
i cannot identify, for instance,a drone.
to me, thats a ufo.to leap from a ufo to a
spaceship from another planet isa big leap.
since 1947, ufo believers havesaid that these flying saucers
exist.they need to show evidence that
is solid.>> we do not have that
extraordinary evidence.luis alfonso gamez, thank you
for being here.>> thank you.
when we return, a pediatriciantells us what children can do
during the summer since theycannot be vaccinated.
and carlos rivera present♪
>> president biden this weekasked that the origins of the
covid-19 virus be investigated.some people believe it was
created in a laboratory inchina.
meanwhile, things begin toreturn to normalcy.
the question now is what do wedo about children and what can
they do regarding the vaccine?dr. andras korten -- dr. andrés
cotton is here with us now.thank you for being here.
what should we do about children-- adults have gotten
vaccinated, but what shouldfamilies do?
>> hello, jorge, how are you.i think we are in a process of
transition.every transition bring some
conflict.to make things clear, we know
children below the age of 2should not wear face masks,
because they could becomeasphyxiated.
between 2 and 12 cannot bevaccinated, so they need to
follow the same protocols havebeen following.
and children after 12, who havebeen vaccinated with both doses,
those children will be able toenjoy the freedoms that the cdc
proposes.>> i want to plan public --
several proposals for you paywhat happens when children are
in public, for instance aschool?
the city of new york has decidedall children will have in-person
classes beginning in the autumn.>> i think that is excellent
news.we have been working towards
that for a long time.i think it is the same thing.
children under the age of 12will have to continue wearing
face masks, washing their hands,and maintaining social distance.
>> what happens in cases wherechildren cannot use a face mask,
like summer camps, when childrenare in swimming bowls --
swimming pools?>> like we said, and we have
said this many times, contagionoutdoors is very, very rare.
i think anything outdoors, likeswimming in a pool or physical
activity, does not worry me.what worries me are enclosed
spaces.children who have not been
vaccinated need to continueprotecting themselves.
>> what happens when we arebringing together several
generations, thinking aboutsomeone between 12 and 16 and
has not been vaccinated, what dowe do?
>> it depends on where you are.if you are outside, the risk of
contagion is very, very small.two people, one from one side,
one from another, cross paths,you know what that possibility
of contagion is?0.
summer is here.this is what we are
if theres a lot of people, weneed to know who is vaccinated,
who is not vaccinated, and thendecide.
>> i do not know if you haveseen how airports are this
memorial day weekend.it is incredible.
i think many of us are going outto vacation for the first time.
the question is what is yourrecommendation?
should we all be wearing facemasks?
>> i recommend everyone in anairport or in airplanes continue
using face masks.we do not know who may have
covid-19.it is true that contagion rates
and deaths in the united stateshave dropped dramatically, but
for now, i think we need tocontinue taking precautions.
and there are things that willnot change.
for instance, i think if you aregoing to the hospital, no one is
going to want to go insidewithout a face mask.
that will continue.>> doctor, i had the opportunity
to return to mexico recently tosee my mother, who is
86-year-old.i had not hugged her in over a
year.like me, there are many people
who want to see their familymembers that they have not seen
in over a year.what is your recommendation?
go or not to go?>> if they are vaccinated and
have had both doses, after 14days, they can go.
that is what we are seeking,science, doctors, we all want
that.we all want to embrace our loved
ones.i also traveled to argentina and
hugged my own father.that is what we are working
towards, so people and childrencan get vaccines.
that is the only way we will beable to return to freedom.
and let me say something.we sometimes think children are
adults, but they are not adults.they think differently.
we do not know what they arethinking.
the emotional damage, we do notsee that.
we, here, see lots of children,and that is what i know some of
the people are afraid ofvaccines.
i recommend that peoplevaccinate their children.
i vaccinated my three kids.my youngest is 15.
he recently got vaccinated.get vaccinated, go visit your
loved ones, that gives usenergy.
>> thank you for being here.>> my pleasure.
>> when we return, carlos riverawanted to sing with the legends
of music, and he tells us how hesang with armando♪
>> that is mexican singer carlosrivera with josé luis prathers,
singing the famous song.he has a new project.
thank you for being with us.i was reading you were about to
begin a tour in the unitedstates and mexico, and then the
pandemic happened.what happened?
>> what happened to a lot ofperformers and people, we had
plans that we were not able tofulfill, but we are slowly
rescheduling some of theconcerts.
in spain, in july, we will dothat, 12 concerts.
and planning as well.i think the united states is one
of the countries where we may beable to have concerts this year,
maybe next, but we are startingto see the light at the end of
the tunnel.>> ive heard your music for the
last 24 hours, and behind you,you have the names of the
greats, like josé luis perales,roberto carlos, -- the greats.
is it scary to sing with thegreats?
>> it is, but i feel moreprotected singing with them.
it is a point of respect.all of these performers, with
the exception of those who areno longer here, accepted to sing
with me, and that makes me feelloved.
it makes me feel awesome toperform their music.
often, when these performers arenot around anymore, everyone
wants to render tributes tothem, and i want to do this
while they are alive, includingwhat i did with armando
manzanero.it was the first one i recorded.
he sang his heart, sent it back,and said that he sang his --
he snang his part, sent it back,and said when will we able to
see each other?but we were not able to because
he passed away.but we were able to contribute
to each other while he wasalive.
♪>> that is what this album is
about.it celebrates the legends of
music.it unites their generations with
mine.music has the power to bring
families together.>> let me push you out of your
comfort zone a little bit.as a mexican, you were born in
tlaxcala, right?>> yes.
>> how are things going formexico?
as a young person, there arepeople like you who have
millions of followers, peoplesuddenly realize they have a
larger platform than manypoliticians.
so i am asking you.>> you know, i see mexico,
sadly, as being divided.and if you ask me what does this
have to do with this album, iwould say it is about unity.
i imagine this album beingplayed at a family reunion,
where people hopefully will nottalk about products or problems
but rather, while listening tothese songs, that memories that
listening to the songs bringthem.
as a performer, songwriter, ivealways tried to make using that
inspires.i have written songs that can be
a little powerful, like one iused trying to send a message
that they can take everythingfrom us except for hope.
things have to change, becausemusic has transformed people and
countries.sometimes, people hear a phrase
from a song, and they will thinkyes, for course, this is what we
need to do.>> with this idea of music as a
form of unity.uforia.ondemand.com.
you can watch our interviewsanytime on univision.com.
until next week, went together,we get to the point, "al punto."
