Episode 133 – Ramon Castro – Walk the Line

Today I had the pleasure of talking to a returning guest, he’s a fellow podcaster, city council member for the city of Brawley and a US Marine Veteran. My guest for today’s episode is my friend Ramon Castro.  I met Ramon back in December of 2019 to talk about a Podcast he and his fellow veterans Ernie and Raymond had started.  They wanted to talk about issues veterans were dealing with, during one of their episodes they had the opportunity to go down to Tijuana and meet with some deported veterans.  While down there they befriended a veteran named Erazmo Apocada, a couple of days after he was notified he was able to apply for his citizenship he was found dead in his backyard.  This motivated Ramon to do something about this issue and while walking the annual memorial day walk he decided he would walk the entire length of the Mexico/US border to bring awareness to deported veterans. Please follow Ramon’s journey as he walks across the US/Mexican border through the American Home Front Initiative webpage or through his Instagram page where he’ll be posting updates on his journey that will add up to more than 1,000 miles where he plans to finish on August 11 in Brownsville Texas.  I really hope that all my Imperial Valley people can help and support Ramon get his message out all the way out to Washington and we can help our deported veterans come back home and with their families who are still in the United States.  I honestly feel that this is way beyond politics because we have men and women willing to give up their freedom and lives for our freedom and yet they get deported.
