Telenovela Stars to March to Washington

Qu Pasa, Posted: Sep 23, 2009

CHARLOTTE -- Local immigration activists are using Mexican celebrities -- the princesses and villains from popular telenovelas -- to create awareness within the Latino community of the importance of participating in the debate over immigration reform, reports the North Carolina Spanish-language newspaper, Qu Pasa.

The celebrities will march to Washington with activists next year, when Congress is expected to take up the issue in January. The actors participating include Vicente Fernndez, Marco Antonio Sols, El Buki and Graciela Beltrn, in addition to the campaign's official spokesperson, Mexican telenovela star Luca Mndez. The idea to invite Mexican actors to participate in the caravan was the brainchild of Maudia Melndez, director of the Jesus Ministry, and entrepreneur lex Ruiz.
