    Default Vietnam Veterans At Risk Of Being Deported

    If you think you misread that headline, youd be wrong.

    Valente and Manuel Valenzuela are two brothers in their 60s from San Antonio, TX who bravely fought for our country in Vietnam. Although the military told them they would get them their citizenship once their tours were up, they both remain undocumented.

    Now the Department of Homeland Security want them deported.



    We feel like were fighting another war, but this time, its against the government of the very country we love and grew up wanting to protect, Manuel Valenzuela said in an interview Sunday.

    Both brothers have small criminal records that date to over a decade old, Manuel for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, Valente for domestic violence.

    This proposed deportation is not sitting well with many and the story continues to gain traction.

    So we can deport these guys, but we can't deport people that hop the fence and hang out in safe-haven cities?

    I feel bad for these guys. They are just a couple amongst the many who received failed promises from this government and are victims of unequal treatment under the law.

    We have to be better than this, right?
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    You have to consider the individual in charge.

    Australia is looking better and better to me everyday, this country is ass backwards with regards to immigration and Ronald Reagan totally fucked us by amnestying aliens in 1986. NEVER TRUST A democrat. Or Republican.

    LOL, here in California, Gov. Braindead Brown just signed a bill allowing them to get drivers licenses.
