Korea: The "Forgotten War" still remembered

A Mexican American Veteran and hero of the Korean War speaks about the war and illegal immigration.

Barrientos said "A first-generation American, he blames the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on America's lax immigration policy. He thinks if Mexicans or Iraqis or anyone else aren't happy, they ought to overthrow their own governments rather than burdening ours.

His grandparents, who were rich Mexican ranchers, used to hide Poncho Villa in their barn during the Mexican Revolution, and his parents only crossed the border in 1914 when fleeing for their lives."
