Tijuana, Baja California, México – The Deported Veterans Support House (DVSH) reported that Andres de León, 72, a deported U.S. Army Veteran who served in Vietnam has finally received his VA pension. De León who became the first deported Veteran to receive a VA pension was surviving with a $30.00 per month donation from family and with the support of the DVSH, according to DVSH founder and director Hector Barajas.
De León received more than $1K from the U.S. Department of Treasury in Veteran’s pension.
Barajas, himself is a deported U.S. Army Veteran and has applied for U.S. Citizen, but the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) who grants a Visa has failed to grant Barajas a Visa, so he can attend an appointment for his citizenship evaluation in the U.S.
It seems that the same USCIS department, which set an appointed for Barajas to be evaluated for citizenship in the U.S. has failed to communicate with an agent to approve a temporary Visa, so Barajas can cross into the U.S. legally for his citizenship evaluation.
Barajas had to re-schedule an appointment for his citizenship after a USCIS agent failed to grant a Visa.
