Deportation Pact Alarms Vietnamese Immigrants

In January, the U.S. Immigration Service signed a pact with the Vietnamese government, agreeing to deport thousands of illegal Vietnamese immigrants who are currently under deportation orders.

Prior to this pact, the Vietnamese government refused to take in deportees. The bulk of those who face imminent deportation have been convicted of felonies in this country, yet the large Vietnamese immigrant community is alarmed.

Rob Schmitz reports from member station KQED.
