Ramon Escamillia says he is living out his dream – right here in Lancaster County.
Escamillia, who was born and raised in Mexico, has been living in Lancaster since 1993. He first came to the United States when he was 12.
Escamillia, now 33, recalls the impoverished conditions his family lived in while in Mexico. He says his goal was to one day move to the United States.
“America was the thing,” he said. “That was the dream – to come to the U.S.”
