Biografía

At the age of four, Juan Carlos “Charlie” Mercado and his Mother were abandoned by his Father. Months after, his Mother passed away.

Charlie had no choice but to find work throughout his childhood as a piñata maker, and a field worker.

After high school, Charlie attended San Diego State University and enrolled in the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps. He graduated as Cadet Commander, first in his class, and as a Commissioned Officer. He also served in Iraq as an infantry soldier.

To help veterans deal with the cruelty of deportation and inform everyone, Charlie established the help center “Deported Veterans of America” and authored the books “Fate of a Deported Veteran” and “Fe Americana.”

Due to Charlie’s exhausting work in the United States and abroad, deported veterans are now receiving their benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs, and they are returning to America.

Charlie seeks an immediate end to the deportations of American soldiers, veterans, and their families.

He supports an increase of the minimum wage, an increase of social security benefits, health care for all and better pensions.

Charlie is 100% against donations from corporations, lobbyists and special interests.

He endorses a plan for student loan debt forgiveness, less incarceration and free education.

Charlie is not a career politician, and his entire political campaign is self-funded. He pays for everything out of his own pocket.

Now, he is humbly asking for your support, you vote, and for the opportunity to serve you.

Gracias, Salamat, Danke Schön, & Thank You.
