Your husband is a physician and you are an immigrant looking for financial aid. This is what's wrong with this country!

We should remain cognizant that not all physicians are wealthy or extremely monied. The physician spouse might be in a lower-paying specialty such as family practice, or he might have massive student loan debt of his own.

It is not a crime for immigrants to seek financial aid.

The OP said her husband is a doctor and has a good income, to me that says you don't need to seek financial aide!

I am US born and cannot even get financial aide, I think it is wrong that someone who came to this country and either has worked a short time or not at all qualifies for my federal tax money. I worked full time during all of my schooling and find it appalling that someone who clearly states they do not need to work because their husband makes enough money, is even going after financial aide! Save it for people who truly need it and get a job to work for school if you need to!

I am truly against people asking for handouts when they do not need it! Thats my federal tax money that I worked full time during school to donate to the government so they can hand it out to immigrants that don't feel like working during school or paying for it!
