Fox News host Jesse Waters was confused last week about the existence of Latin American Jews. Watters was on “The Five” and was talking about the background of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Jesse said, “he was probably nominated, at the least. that's what they tout, is because he was Hispanic. He was born in Cuba. His parents are Jewish, which was confusing to me. But, you know, I don't know a lot about that stuff.” There are plenty of Jewish people throughout Latin America. Some Hispanic Jews can trace their heritage back to the Spanish Inquisition, during which they fled to settle in places like Cuba. To his credit, Watters said he doesn’t know anything about this topic, but it would serve him well to do a quick cursory search on the topic before making a fool of himself.
