Fusion's Jorge Ramos on what he learned covering the 2016 race

Why are thousands of migrants fleeing violence met with horror in the U.S.?

Imagine fleeing your home country because of violence or war. You travel thousands of miles to seek refuge in a new nation–the United States–hoping to start a new life with your family. Upon arrival, you’re locked up in a detention center under horrific conditions along with other migrant families who are also desperate and scared, searching for the same opportunities in a foreign land.

This is the reality for thousands of Central American migrants here in the U.S.

A Fusion investigation looks into the startling plight of immigrants entering the US. Cristina Constantini joined Jorge Ramos to share her exclusive reporting.
