In the USA, they tried for a time to associate with what became the OCA (Orthodox Church in America), but the OCA was more an "immigrant church", while the groups that became ROCA over here were more a "refugee church". They didn't get along and still don't. Each considers the other to have "betrayed" Russia in some way.
