I know you have a point there but it is more on the negative side as if there is no hope at all.Well, I understand your sentiment as an American who is worrying about the influx of foreign nurses..
Only Philippines, India , and China would be affected by this Retrogression. UK, Canada and South Korea are not included in the 50,000 visa quota..So like it or not, you would still continue to receive foreign nurses on your unit...Even if the nurses' quota will be abolished, US immigration law always changes and it is unpredictable, so dont you worry, they are not giving easy visas to foreigners every year and opening USA to all...and it is not very easy to enter United States, mind you.foreign nurses are having a very hard time fulfilling all the US exam requirements and dealing with the very long wait to be there with or without retrogression..
Actually, the concept of immigrant nurses doesn't bother me. I think the advantages to y'all far outweigh any negative to me.
I'm just being realistic. From where I sit, knowing how politics work in the country, I doubt very seriously that there IS any realistic chance of this making it into law.
See, no matter how the next election turns out, even IF the Democrats take a slim control of one or both houses, there are too many Republicans that take a hard line on immigration AND too many Democrats whose seats would be unsafe if they DIDN'T to ensure this provision doesn't make it to the final version of the law.
I know you guys are really really wanting this. But, I don't set it happening. I'm just being realistic.
There is HOPE that I'll win the lottery and be rich this week. But, I don't plan my life based on such things. There's a saying: if it sounds too good to be true, it likely IS too good to be true.
