Vietnamese Men Denied U.S. Visas to Go Donate Bone Marrow to Dying Brother in San Jose

Two Vietnamese brothers were denied temporary U.S. visas necessary for them to donate bone marrow to their dying brother living in San Jose.

Tu Le, 63, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of blood cancer in January 2018 called Myelodysplastic syndrome. The father of four immigrated to the U.S. in 1992 and has since become a U.S. citizen; he desperately requires a bone marrow transplant as soon as possible in order to survive.
