Radio personality Eddie "Piolin" Sotelo will hand deliver over one million letters signed by U.S. citizens and/or legal residents in support of the passage of a fair and just immigration reform bill this year to bi-partisan members of Congress. Piolin's "Por la Reforma Migratoria con Piolin" campaign marks the first time that a letter writing campaign has generated such a large number of letters in support of immigration reform.

"I am humbled by the overwhelming support that this campaign has received and I believe wholeheartedly in the urgent need for immigration reform in our great country," said Piolin. "Fair and just immigration reform is needed to address the current and future challenges our nation faces and will continue to face in the future. I sincerely thank everyone who has shown their support for this cause, both here in D.C. and across the U.S."

Piolin began his letter writing campaign on Univision Radio's "Piolin por La Manana" and on just six weeks ago. Five days ago, he left from Los Angeles, beginning his cross-country caravan journey and making stops in Albuquerque, Dallas and Chicago to collect letters from U.S. citizens and legal residents in a united quest for immigration reform.
