Help securely evacuate human rights border activist, Hugo Castro!

Evacuate and Heal Hugo Castro

Pat recently heard a desperate and moving story told by Enrique Morones, founder of Border Angels, a human rights organization working on the US/Mexico border in San Diego, near where Pat lives. Morones spoke of Hugo Castro, a Border Angels activist--and US citizen--who had disappeared.

A KBPS article explains:

"[Castro's] disappearance came while he was en route to Querétaro, Mexico to participate in a caravan that is following asylum seekers from Central America on their dangerous trek to the U.S.-Mexico border.

The caravan is meant to raise awareness about allegations that the U.S. has been turning away refugees without reviewing their cases, as well as human rights abuses they reportedly suffer in Mexico.

Castro said in his Facebook Live video, posted at 6:28 p.m. on Thursday, that a criminal organization had been following him for days and that they were now cornering him on the highway in freight vehicles.

Since that day, Hugo was found badly beaten. He is in critical condition and funds are being raised for his secure evacuation from Mexico, so he can be treated in the US.

Donate to help Evacuate and Heal Hugo Castro!
