News at Eleven: Believing deeply that U.S. government officials

share as much responsibility as their counterparts in Mexico, [Javier] Sicilia plans to make his plea to the U.S. Congress this summer.

Between now and then, Sicilia will be spending his time organizing a caravan due to depart from the border town of San Diego in August, making stops in over twenty U.S. cities and finishing at the steps of the U.S. Capitol where he plans to repeat the message he's been spreading all over his native country: "!Estamos hasta la madre!" Roughly translated to English, the phrase means, "We've had it!"
