If those pushing for amnesty had not blocked immigration reform by demanding amnesty she would have an easier time coming back here. Here you have a bright motivate person but the pro-amnesty groups demand amnesty for all and block any solution to allow people like her to immigrate legally. She tried to do the right thing and the pro-amnesty group have prevented it. That is the true story here. We need reform not amnesty.

stay in Mexico and do your country SOME GOOD, anything to help the country you left bring it out of it's corrupted state, perhaps even making it easier to help others in your situation there adjust and help themselves to live a good life in Mexico using whatever skills learned in the US and applying those skills in your new environment, to better yourselves.
