CHICAGO, Nov. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Jeffery Leving, who captured international headlines when he helped reunite Elian Gonzalez with his father in Cuba, announced today the release of his top-selling Fathers' Rights book in Spanish.
Los Derechos del Padre is now available in Spanish, the second most spoken language in the United States with 37 million speakers, in the wake of President Obama's immigration policy being implemented.
Leving recently met with Governor Miguel Marquez Marquez of Guanajuato, Mexico and presented him with a copy Los Derechos del Padre. The book contains hard-hitting statistical results of father absence, such as 72 percent of all teenage murderers grew up without fathers and 60 percent of rapists were raised in fatherless families. There are many more thought-provoking statistics throughout the book.
Attorney Leving said he wants to help the millions of Spanish-speaking dads know their rights on American soil. "In a court system that has historically discriminated against fathers and those whose first language is not English, Los Derechos del Padre will help Spanish speaking dads fight for their rights," he acknowledged.
Attorney Leving pioneered the fathers' rights movement more than 30 years ago and has been at the forefront, advocating for the rights of fathers in all communities.
In 2000, he fought and helped reunite Elian Gonzalez with his father in Cuba after Elian's mother drowned while fleeing Cuba for the U.S. in a fragile boat. Elian was initially placed with paternal relatives in Miami, though his father demanded his return.
