Univision Radio personality Eddie “Piolín” Sotelo did achieve his goal of gathering over one million letters in support of the passage of a “fair and just” immigration reform bill.
And now, he is taking them to Washington.
“Por la Reforma Migratoria con Piolín,” as the latest pro-immigration campaign is known, included a caravan that departed Wednesday from Los Angeles and is arriving today in Washington, D.C., where Piolín is expected to hand-deliver the letters to members of the Senate and House, including Senator Kennedy, Senator Martinez and Senator Menendez.
Sending off the caravan, known as “Dreams Across America,” was Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony, a longtime supporter of immigrant rights.
Univision has even set up a dedicated blog where users can join the “pioli-caravana” as it travels to its destiny.
One can only hope that those traveling with Piolín have their papers in order, as the much publicized event lately has been the center of attention of everybody, including immigrant busters.
