Estados Unidos es un país que hoy tiene habitantes de primera y de segunda clase. Esto tiene que cambiar, y pronto. Hay 12 millones de indocumentados, pero también hay una esperanza: la promesa que Barack Obama le hizo a Jorge Ramos de que durante su primer año como presidente apoyaría una reforma migratoria. Tierra de todos es un libro urgente y necesario, que pretende ayudar a que se realice esta reforma. Este es un libro que da voz a los que no la tienen. Un libro que todo inmigrante debe tener y, sobre todo, este es un libro que todos los que critican a los inmigrantes deben leer, para que entiendan que Estados Unidos es un mejor país gracias a todas las personas que vinieron de otros países.

Tierra de todos. (Everyone’s Land) Ramos, Jorge. U.S.: Vintage Español: Random House. 2009. 180p. ISBN 978-0-307-47519-0. pap. $13. ESSAY STAROne of the U.S. Latino world’s most respected and influential personalities, Ramos has won eight Emmys for co-anchoring Univision’s highly rated newscast, which is seen by millions of Latinos in the United States and in 13 Latin American countries. In addition, he has written nine best-selling books, including a children’s book, and uses his various forums to promote literacy among Latinos. He came to the United States in 1983 on a student visa and is often referred to as the “voice of the voiceless” for his passionate stand on social issues and defense of immigrants and Latinos. In this essay, he continues to argue for the immediate reform of the U.S. immigration system. Ramos concisely and effectively articulates the urgent need for action, backing up his arguments with statistics and interviews with political leaders at the center of the issue and addressing then-candidate Obama’s promise to enact immigration reform within his first year in office. Impassioned yet factual and forcefully supporting core U.S. values of equality and opportunity, this small book will both inform and inspire the Latino community. Highly recommended for all public libraries, academic libraries, and general bookstores.—Yolanda J. Cuesta, Cuesta MultiCultural Consulting, Sacramento, CA
