Ramos became a resident of the United States in 2008, after many years of being personally entangled about the subject. He had regarded himself as just another "Mexican with a green card." Ramos said he had been in Mexico 25 years and 25 years in the United States, and that he came to a realization this year, "You have to go through a mental and emotional process to figure out who you really are." "I finally understood that I could not be defined by one nation." I am from both countries. It took me many years to get to that conclusion, as well as the fact that I was never going back to Mexico.
Ramos has been married twice before. Gina Montaner, the daughter of defunct Cuban author Carlos Alberto Montaner, was his first wife; they had just one child, Paola (born 1988). Paola and her mother were raised in Spain after her divorce in 1990. He married Lisa Bolivar in 1992 at the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

He lives in the Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami.

Ramos is registered as an independent voter.
Ramos revealed in June 2015 that his daughter, Paola Ramos, was working for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign.
Ramos worked on Grupo Televisa's flagship XEW-TV in Mexico City for the network's local version of 60 Minutes. He left the job at the age of 24, after a report he wrote that was critical of Mexico's government was blocked. He left Mexico on a student visa for Los Angeles, where he planned to enroll in UCLA Extension's journalism classes. He was hired by KMEX-TV, an affiliate of what was then the Spanish International Network (SIN), in Los Angeles, which ran on a shoestring budget in a run-down facility on Melrose Avenue in 1984. Ramos said at KMEX that he could express himself freely: "To me it was a palace... the United States gave me opportunities that my country of origins didn't have: freedom of the press and absolute freedom of expression." Mundo Latino, the host of KMEX's morning program, three years later. Ramos joined SIN's national operation a year later when it was rebranded as the Univision network; Univision has a broad entertainment and news-sharing agreement with Televisa.
Ramos has been the anchorman for Noticiero Univision, a nightly Spanish language newscast, since 1987, as well as colleague Mara Elena Salinas. He also hosts Al Punto, a Spanish-language Sunday public affairs program on Univision and America with Jorge Ramos, an English language news magazine on Fusion TV.
Ramos remembered thinking, "This is why I am what I am," as he recalled the Berlin Wall's demise in 1989. Among the global events he covered were the Salvadoran Civil War, the Persian Gulf War, the dissolution of the Soviet Union, and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Ramos travelled on his own while on vacation in Afghanistan during the United States' War in Afghanistan because his network refused to send him. He has covered five wars in his career.
KMEX-DT's Univision 34 news shows consistently beating their English language competition among young viewers as of 2014. He has interviewed several world leaders, including Barack Obama, George W. Bush, George H. Bush, George H. Bush, Fidel Castro, Daniel Ortega, and Hugo Chávez.
Ramos also writes a bilingual newspaper column that is widely distributed around the world, and he appears on English-language cable television networks, such as CNN and MSNBC. According to studies, Latino Latinos rank him as the most trusted and influential Hispanic in America, surpassing all other political figures, and his Q Score among Latino audiences places him between soccer star Lionel Messi and pop singer Shakira.
He founded Despierta Leyendo (Wake Up Reading), the first book club in the history of Spanish-language television.
He appeared for Univision on Tuesday, Texas, in a Democratic debate between Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on The University of Texas's Austin campus.
Ramos, who was critical of the absence of Latino moderators in any of the United States presidential debates, argued that the debate commission was "stuck in the 1950s." Ramos blasted both Obama and Mitt Romney's "self-deportation" policy, Ramos considered an insult to Latinos, and Obama's renestation on his pledge to deal with immigration during his first term. Ramos was dubbed the columnist by Washington Monthly, and it would be the one who would most influence the 2012 presidential election. Ramos' increasing inability resulted in criticism of his advocacy campaign. "Our position is obviously pro-Latino or pro-immigrant, and we are simply being the face of those who don't have a voice," Ramos said.
Ramos sought an interview with Trump in 2015, shortly after Donald Trump became a presidential nominee. After Trump's remarks about Mexican immigrants in June, he sent Trump a handwritten letter, which revealed Ramos' cell phone number. The post was later deleted by Trump.
On August 25, 2015, Ramos attended a news conference in Dubuque, Iowa, attended by Trump. Ramos conducted previous Trump press conferences and discovered a pattern of Trump repeatedly uttering "excuse me" and calling on another journalist when asked a question challenging his convictions. Ramos refused to sit down and continue asking Trump about his immigration policies after being refused. Ramos insisted on his rights as a journalist and United States citizen to ask a question, prompting Trump's Head of Security Keith Schiller to call him backwards out of the conference room. Around 15 minutes later, Trump allowed Ramos to return to the conference, where he and Trump engaged in a tense discussion on the topic. Later, Trump said he had not called on Ramos for a query because he had called on another reporter in the audience. Ramos accused Trump of "spreading hate" by his calls for mass deportation of undocumented families and ending birthright citizenship, as well as ending birthright citizenship, and criticizing Trump's plans, as well as examining the possibility of Trump's policies. He also questioned Trump's viability as a candidate among Latino voters, citing a survey that showed that 75% of those voters held negative opinions of him and estimated that he would only receive 16% of the Latino vote. Trump gained 29% of the Hispanic vote, up 13% over Ramos' estimate. Despite this, the majority of Latinos did not vote. Turnout in Latino was actually under 50%, much less than the overall low voter turnout. Since Obama was in office, it had risen in the previous election.
Ramos developed his documentary Hate Rising, which aired on Univision and Fusion on October 23, 2016. Ramos spoke to representatives of various hate groups around the region, including Ku Klux Klan members and neo-Nazis, as well as Latino and Muslim victims, in preparation for the documentary. His journey lasted nine months, with some people putting him in jeopardy as both an immigrant and a Mexican-American man. Ramos partnered with director Catherine Tambini, an American who was under the assumption that the organisations were to be speaking to, but only right before the interview began did Ramos sit down to ask questions.
Ramos first broadcasted raw footage from his phone to social media followers in 2016, gaining 2.6 million views on his Iowa caucus videos and over four million on his coverage during the New Hampshire primaries.
After an interview with Nicolás Maduro on February 25, 2019, he was detained with his journalistic group in the Miraflores Palace. He was released just hours later and deported from the country after capturing the equipment and interview video. Maduro denied there was a humanitarian crisis in Venezuela, causing Ramos to show Maduro pictures of Venezuelans eating garbage to point out that there was no crisis. Ramos said he and his crew were detained because Maduro's reaction bothered him. The incident was described as a "cheap show" by Maduro's Information Minister Jorge Rodro.
His participation in the morning conference of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador was tense because he clashed with López Obrador over homicide figures in Mexico during the administration's period. The episode began a discussion about the use of figures of violent homicides in Mexico and the country's diverse sources. Fidel Castro, a deportation lawyer who advised Obama on deportations, confronted Trump and is reportedly an Oriana Fallaci supporter.
