Daily News: #IndianAmerican Doctors Push for More Green Cards

DoctorsMembers of the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin are lobbying congress to increase the number of green cards to reduce the US doctor shortage, reports the Daily News.

The idea is to give green cards to foreign students who graduate from medical residency programs in the US.

It’s estimated the US will be short 90,000 physicians by 2020 and a staggering 130,000 by 2025.

The doctors hope their ideas will be incorporated into the immigration reform package now being debated in congress.

“We want the best, the brightest and the bravest to stay here,” Congressman Joe Crowley, Co-Chair of the Congressional India Caucus, said.
