Jeany and Ray's Story of Immigration

By Mara Davidson, AFSC Iowa Intern, April 5, 2011

Ten years ago on April 28, Jeany and Ray were married in Des Moines, Iowa. Just a few days after the ceremony, Ray stood in line at three in the morning in Omaha, Nebraska to receive his residency. “That was it!” says Jeany, referring to how easy it was to get residency for her husband back then. “You stood in line, filled out the paperwork, and you were done. It’s not like that nowadays.”
