 Ruben Navarrette Jr. Biography

Ruben Navarrette Jr. is a nationally syndicated columnist with The Washington Post Writers Group whose twice-a-week column appears in nearly 150 newspapers. This makes him the most widely read Latino columnist in the country, known for his unpredictability and provocative thinking. He challenges both political parties with equal enthusiasm and his column is required reading for anyone who wants to better understand the nation's 52 million Latinos.

Navarrette is also a CNN contributor who writes a weekly column for CNN.com on the issues of the day. His columns often provoke strong reactions, racking up as many as 800,000 page views, 11,000 reader comments, and dozens of emails.

On television, Navarrette has appeared on Lou Dobbs Tonight, Inside Politics, Paula Zahn Now, Anderson Cooper 360, The Chris Matthews Show, The O'Reilly Factor, Fox and Friends, Hardball with Chris Matthews, The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, NOW with Bill Moyers, Erin Burnett OutFront, Rick's List, and other shows. He also served as a panelist on PBS' All-American Presidential Forum in June 2007, a primetime event where he joined moderator Tavis Smiley and other panelists in posing questions to Democratic presidential candidates.

On radio, Navarrette has appeared on nationally syndicated radio shows hosted by Bill Bennett, Lars Larson, Michael Reagan, Linda Chavez, and Laura Ingraham. He has dozens of interviews on local radio shows and Sirius/XM. His writing has been praised on the nationally syndicated radio show hosted by Rush Limbaugh, where the host once read one of his columns to the show's 20 million listeners. He has been a commentator on NPR's "Tell Me More" with Michel Martin, "Talk of the Nation," "The Diane Rehm Show," "All Things Considered," and "Morning Edition." A radio talk show host who in 1994 had a three-hour daily show in Los Angeles, he has been a guest host in Phoenix, Dallas, San Diego, and Fresno, California. He has also served as a guest host for the nationally syndicated "The Michael Medved Show," which airs in more than 200 markets. Currently, Navarrette is a co-host for Glenn Beck on The Blaze Radio Network with broadcast veteran Chris Salcedo.

A popular speaker on the national lecture circuit, Ruben Navarrette Jr. has addressed dozens of audiences at universities, conferences, and town halls since 1993. He has spoken at Harvard, Georgetown, Oberlin, Southern Methodist University, Wabash College, Colby College, UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara, Hanover College, The University of San Diego, Oklahoma State University Tulsa, and the John F.

Speaking Topics
  • Immigration

    Immigration is perhaps the most divisive issue that Americans have wrestled with since slavery. Everyone seems to have an opinion about why our country's immigration system is broken and a solution for fixing it. But most of those views
    • especially those emanating from the East Coast media centers
    • aren't terribly informed and are too often shaped by partisan politics. With a 360-degree perspective on the immigration issue, speaker Ruben Navarrette lays out with passion and clarity what's wrong with the public dialogue over immigration and explains how we can make it right. Then, unpredictable to the end, he provides a solution.

  • The Latino Vote in 2014 & Beyond

    Latino voters are an enigma. A population of 52 million people yields about 10 million voters. Many are concentrated in so-called battleground states like Nevada, Colorado, and Florida and helped propel Barack Obama to a second term in 2012. And each month, another 50,000 US-born Hispanics turn 18 years old and become eligible to vote. This is a largely Democratic constituency that has, on occasion, voted for moderate Republicans. Having written about politics and politicians for nearly 25 years, speaker Ruben Navarrette decodes the Latino vote and tells each party what they need to do
    • or stop doing
    • to win it over.

  • Changing Demographics

    The Census Bureau estimates that Hispanics will account for 25 percent of all Americans by 2035. Now at 16 percent, Hispanics are already leaving their fingerprints on everything from music, entertainment, and food to sports, fashion, and pop culture. Then of course, there are the worlds of politics and business where Latino voters and Latino consumers are pursued by political strategists and marketers with equal zeal. But what does it really mean that the United States is becoming a Hispanic country? Speaker Ruben Navarrette gives us the answer and explains why America's best days are still ahead.

  • Education

    Education reform has been called the new Civil Rights Movement and it ranks in public opinion polls as one of the top three issues that Latino voters care about most. In the classroom, teachers struggle everyday with finding ways to reach and teach Latino students. Often, when these students falter, teachers will blame parents and accuse them of not valuing education. That's way off the mark. As a former kindergarten teacher who has written about education for many years, speaker Ruben Navarrette explains what's really going wrong with the way that we educate Latino students
    • and how we can get it right.
