Walter Larrosa of the prestigious Ocean Drive magazine, which highlights top personalities who are making an impact in the United States, interviewed Mariela Salgado.
In the article, Mariela talks about her childhood and her work with NBC network.



In collaboration with the Chilean community, Mariela participated in the Telethon as a host to raise funds for the handicap children of Chile.

In the Opinion section of The Palm Beach Post, Immigration and Human Rights lawyer, Aileen Josephs, mentions the work carried out by Mariela Salgado in Chiapas, Mexico. Ms. Josephs’ article depicts what the reporter described as the crude reality suffered by Central American immigrants who leave their countries in search of a better life in the United States.

In the midst of poverty and starvation in their countries, they make the desperate decision of crossing the border by rail. They jump onto moving trains headed for Chiapas, which supposedly will take them to the United States. During the sad journey, many of them end up mutilated because they simply fall sleep and fall off the moving train. However, as seen on Salgado’s report, without their limbs, they still find hope.

In this article, Josephs describes the professionalism and sensitivity of the reporter during her investigation for Telemundo’s magazine show, “Sin Fronteras”, entitled "Mutilations in Chiapas".

Josephs and Salgado have worked together in various human-interest stories in the past.
