But he is half Jewish and half Porto Rican. You would never know it since he has billed himself as the Hispanic defender of illegal immigration.
Before that he was a lawyer defending gang members in the Bronx. Back in the 1970s he found it to his advantage to accent his Hispanic half to get ahead in TV land.
BTW he could not speak a word of Spanish and grew up in a middle class privileged community. Well maybe working class but being Geraldo he would have you think he was from the "projects."
