Orange County in Southern California has one of the biggest expatriate Vietnamese communities in the country.

Little Saigon is a hotbed of anti-communist, anti-Hanoi sentiment, and many in the community are planning big protests this weekend to coincide with the first post-war visit of a Vietnamese president to this country.

The visit is aimed at building trade, but it's also stirring up old and never buried debates among Vietnamese immigrants.

Rob Schmitz of member station KQED reports.
