Husband, wife kept apart by sea of red tape

Ray Ragolta wants a wife — his wife, Gilma.

A Cuban native with dual citizenship, Ragolta met Gilma in Cuba during a visit to his homeland in 2010 and the two married June 28, 2012, on Ragolta’s birthday.

They dreamed of being together in America, but it’s not simple or easy for a Cuban citizen to move to America.
