Even after service to the nation, thousands of veterans are in danger of being deported. Filmmaker John Valadez joins host Krys Boyd to tell the story of Vietnam veterans Valente and Manuel Valenzuela, who were served with deportation papers for misdemeanor offenses, and the justice system that is barred from taking military service into consideration. The documentary “American Exile” is part of Latino Public Broadcasting’s VOCES and airs tonight on PBS.
