El Salvadorian Cycles for Immigration Reform

Hoy New York, Posted: Aug 24, 2008

NEW YORKMario Castellon Leiva, an El Salvadorian living in Texas, is on a massive cycling tour to promote immigration reform, reports Hoy New York. Leiva, 39, who has had resident status since 1997, said that the idea came to him when he saw a boy crying on television because his parents were going to be deported to Mexico. That broke his heart, Levia said. He left his job because he couldnt get time off for his plan, and then went to El Salvador, where he started his tour May 31. As he rode across El Salvador, Guatemala and Mexico he urged for action to prevent children from being separated from their families. Leivas goal is to cover 32 states. He's lost a lot of weight and has little in way of resources. But if you ask me to do it again, I would, he told Rumbo.
