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.
