There is a thread on the fromt page about some talk of Obama revoking the TN visas and those nurse being "kicked out" of the country. Strangely this has some strong support from american nurses who feel foreign nurses are taking jobs away from Americans....
I have been here with my family for 3 years via the I-140 route, so we all have green cards. Silly question really, but will this affect us and other nurses here with green cards?
(the immigration stuff was quite traumatic and a long time ago now, and although I can't believe it I have forgotten a lot of the details and rules etc, I guess I have blocked it out (lol!) ......hence the questions!)
Quote from mitcornsus
I don't understand if nurses who are US citizens or green card holders have difficulty finding jobs, why do we need to import nurses from Phipino? It does not make sense for the USCIS to approve all these I140 at all.
In fact, I think Schedule A occupations should be eliminated, given the tough economy and job market in US. What US should concentrate on is educating their own people instead of importing foreign nurses.
OK this is getting ridiculous. The OP was talking about TN1 Visas. Why is it that everytime a post is made regarding any type of foreign nurse visa the Filipino nurse issue is always brought up? Give it up, there is retrogression in place and leave it at that. The Filipino nurses who are already here are here to stay.
