To label the Hmong refugees as terrorist is probably the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. I would have never imagined this, especially when after all the facts are laid of the Allied Hmong aid to the US in the Vietnam War. I would be deeply heartbroken if the US were to start to deport Hmong people back to Laos because it would suicide and all because of this Patriot Act restriction. And about the exclusion of the 8 groups to this Act, I hope that the US did not merely just forget to include the Hmong. In response, I hope the US Government will revise this US Patriot Act to exclude the Hmong people or any other groups that are wrongly labeled.

It is absolutely ABSURD that the U.S. has MANDATED to allow 7000 IRAQIs ANNUALLY into the U.S. every year, who by the way, are more prone to be TERRORISTS than the Hmong or any of the other groups that have also been labeled as terrorists. I've yet to meet a Hmong person who is willing to strap a bomb on themselves and go into a marketplace to blow up people for some dumb reason. Did the U.S. just use the Hmong people as a sacraficial pawn in the Vietnam War? How disgusting is that?
The person who pushed for the U.S. Patriot Act is the the Rep for Wisconsin.. where I might add, is where a lot of Hmong people reside.. Hmm.. might there be an alternative motive???

Hmmmm it seems I have mis-spelled some words that has a lot of meaning. Im sure it was the steam that I was releasing by typing too fast. REVISIONS: deport Hmong people back to Laos because it would BE(revision) suicide and all because of this Patriot Act restriction.---> In response, I hope the US Government will revise this US Patriot Act to INCLUDE(revision) the Hmong people or any other groups that are wrongly labeled.

That depend which side you are looking at it... communist won, so Hmong are consider terrorist in their eyes due to the fact that Hmong fought against the communist.

For thailand and US to turn their back on Hmong is shameful... well... the US did turn their back on it won VN War veterans...

The US need to put pressure on thailand to do more for the Hmong people or the US need to do more for them period.

Its shameful to see how the US treat a once allied.

...When US interest ceased in Indochina and when US Troops pulled out of Indochina, all parties involved SHOULD KNOW THAT: No matter how well you aligned with US Troops, their jobs WERE OVER, SO DO YOURS. Bottom line: USA don't owe you anything. Smarten up, people, including you Hmong IDIOTS!...Right in USA, when the company you worked for declares bankcruptcy, that means BYE BYE to your job and do not expect they owed you your living, ALSO ABOUT YOU PENSION. Get that, IDIOTS? Aahahhahahaa!
