I really enjoyed reading your article. You are absolutely right that Americans need to learn more about this process. I did not realize how difficult merit-based immigration was in this country. The Immigration system needs to be reformed. Not only are merit-based immigrants being denied a fair shot, children are in cages along our border. I am happy that you love America but I think that America doesn't look the same when you get close up.
I love my fellow citizens sometimes. However, the tension in this country could be cut with a knife. Maybe one day we can fix this system that keeps great people from coming here.
