U.S. Vet Back In California After Being Deported


After being deported to Mexico more than a decade ago, a U.S. veteran and immigration activist is being reunited with his family in California.  Family and friends held a welcome home ceremony for Hector Barajas in Compton yesterday.  Barajas served in the U.S. military and had green card status, but was deported in 2002. 

While in Mexico, he created a safe house called "The Bunker" for other displaced U.S. Veterans needing healthcare, PTSD counseling and other services.  Congresswoman Nanette Barragan and Governor Jerry Brown helped secure Barajas' return as a U.S. citizen.
