U.S. overrated? Not if you look more closely

Lejla Korkutović is a Muslim Bosnian immigrant who came to America in the early 2000s escaping the war in Bosnia, she reflects on President Trump's executive order banning Muslim refugees and immigrants for 90 days.

Syl Sobel's nicely written swipe at American exceptionalism (“‘Here’s the problem with you Americans,’” Nov. 6) relies heavily on a Bosnian official whose view is that we overrate our American achievements and that his culture will unquestionably outlast ours.

I would invite Mr. Sobel's attention to the fact that hundreds of thousands of Bosnians have chosen the United States over Bosnia and seek to create American subcommunities of Bosnians in such places as Utica, St. Louis, Boston and elsewhere in order to enjoy the benefits of American exceptionalism.
