Congressman Raúl M. Grijalva and six other members of Congress visited the Deported Veterans Support House in Tijuana, Mexico Saturday.

The Congressman reintroduced H.R. 1405, Veterans Visa & Protection Act.

The bill would establish a visa program that allows deported veterans who meet certain requirements to enter the U.S. as lawful permanent residents.

It also would allow those admitted to be eligible for the existing naturalization process.

Lastly, the bill will stop the deportation of eligible veterans.
