After deported veteran’s death, a renewed push to end removals of former military

AUSTIN, Texas — Although he works to keep the border secure, Customs officer Robert Mosqueda says a law that deported his military veteran father and kept him out until his death is “completely wrong.”

Mosqueda’s father, Carlos Torres, died last month in Mexico, where he was born. His family brought his body back and Torres, a Vietnam era veteran, was buried on U.S. soil with military funeral honors.
