Undocumented Immigrant Stages Hunger Strike at White House

El Diario La Prensa, Posted: Dec 02, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C.An undocumented Mexican immigrant, who has been living in the United States for 20 years, recently began a hunger strike in front of the White House, calling for immigration reform, reports El Diario La Prensa.

Already on his fifth day, the hunger striker is urging President Obama to pass comprehensive immigration reform by the end of the year, as hed promised. The immigrant said he intends to organize other undocumented workers and make a "census," so these workers are taken into account in the official 2010 Census.

He has sent letters to Obama and the president of Mexico, Felipe Caldern, asking how to solve the problem of the undocumented, which is not only affecting the United States, but also Mexico, Central America and other countries.
