For years, I thought I would be forced to leave the United States-- first in 2014, then in 2017, and finally, permanently, in the Summer of 2018. Today I begin the process of applying for Permanent Residence. Leaving is my humble attempt at documenting what it is like to try, and still want to be, an immigrant in America.
