A Mableton man who is in the 40th day of a hunger strike to protest Georgias new immigration law is seeking an audience with Gov. Nathan Deal as his condition weakens, Channel 2 Action News reports.Salvador Zamora was in a wheelchair, accompanied by supporters, as he delivered a letter Tuesday to Deals office in the state Capitol. Zamora is protesting HB 87, the Georgia immigration law that took effect July 1, the day his hunger strike began.
These laws are not good not only for the immigrant community, but are not good for Georgia, Zamora told Channel 2. We need also to show (Deal) this is bad for the people and this puts a lot of pressure and fear in people and they are running away and hiding.
The hunger strike started with two men, but one of them dropped out on the 12th day of the fast to take care of Zamora when he came down with an infection.
In a telephone interview with the AJC, Zamora said he has lost about 30 pounds since his protest began and now weighs 175 pounds. He gotten over the infection but now has the normal symptoms of food deprivation dizziness, headaches.
Sometimes I can walk, but its a lot of pain, especially from the knees down. Sometimes its very hard to get up, he said.

Try as I might, I just cannot see a problem with this fellow passing away.
I do not give a smelly Obama about him.
I will chip in on sending the remains home.
Have him cremated and spread the ashes on Michelle’s garden, which is likely already being tended by illegal aliens.
I don’t care if he risks death. He can die for all I care. I hope Nathan Deal ignores him entirely.
If he doesn’t like Georgia, he’s free to leave. Has anyone checked his citizenship?
I have a solution. Okay buddy, sit still. Turn your head a little bit to the left. Okay, perfect now sit still. Wait for it...
Gotta pack, I'm headed to Mexico to tell them how they should be running their Country.
LOL don’t forget to include a hunger strike in Mexico..
May he be as successful in his endeavor as Bobby Sands.
“Have your muchacha call my girl—we’ll do the lunch thing.”
More food for the rest of us.
Got it. Something tells me they won’t care. They’ll probably sell tickets to see the gringo starve.
If he wants his voice heard, he can vote like the rest of us. That is if he’s a US citizen and has bothered to register.
“What diet plan are you trying this time?”
“Well, I gave up on Atkins, but I just started on the Zamora plan. It says in the AJC that you can lose 30 pounds in 40 days on that plan.”
