"This is not a Democrat or Republican issue---this is an American Issue! Our goal was to walk from San Diego (in California) all the way to Brownsville (in Texas) to bring awareness to this issue of deported veterans as we're pushing three initiatives. First, we're asking President Joe Biden to halt the deportation of war veterans, now. Second, we're asking for a program to be instituted so that all active military become citizens while on active duty. And we're asking for a full pardon to bring all these veterans who have been deported home back to the U.S.,” said Castro.

The American Veterans Homefront Initiative's call-to-action outlines three clear goals and asks that the current Biden-Harris administration and U.S. Congress to take swift and bold actions on the following:

1. Implement, streamline the process for service members and veterans to become citizens Immediately.
2. Halt deportation of American Veterans.
3. Pardon all American Veterans who have been deported and bring them home.
