Univision anchor Jorge Ramos has a book coming out about Trump and immigration, a "manifesto" on the Latino immigrant experience in the United States, titled "Stranger: The Challenge of a Latino Immigrant in the Trump Era" to be published Feb. 27.

Mexican-born, Ramos is combining his own story of emigrating from Mexico with a critique of Trump's policies, according to his publisher. He calls his book a defense of the "open" and "inclusive" spirit he believes Trump threatens. The book is dedicated to the Dreamers, who are, in Ramos’ view, “the future of this country.”

Considered the most influential journalist in the Latino community, Ramos's book examines "what does it mean to be a Latino immigrant, or just an immigrant, in the Trump era?" according to his publisher.

During a news conference in 2015, Ramos confronted Trump about his plans for more restrictive immigration laws. Security personnel escorted Ramos, who had not been called on by Trump, from the event.

"A seasoned journalist, Ramos took the episode 'personally' and uses it to explore his own biography as an immigrant, with the US’s long immigration history as a backdrop, and drawing from the latest data and immigration statistics to respond to Trump’s claims," according to the website of Penguin Random House.

"Ramos takes readers along on his journey through America’s history and his own immigration story in an effort to explain why, after thirty five years in this country, after having left his family and friends to pursue a career in journalism, after having two US-born children, after becoming an Emmy Award-winning journalist and a U.S citizen, and even after fulfilling his American Dream, he still feels like a stranger."

Ramos has been the anchorman for Noticiero Univision since 1986. He writes a weekly column for more than 40 newspapers in the United States and Latin America, and also hosts Al Punto, Univision’s weekly public affairs program offering analysis of the week’s top stories, and Fusion’s AMERICA with Jorge Ramos, a news program geared towards young adults.

The winner of eight Emmy awards, he is the author of ten books, most recently, "Take a Stand, Lessons from Rebels."
