Some high-skilled immigrants have entrepreneurial dreams to create a better future for themselves, their families, and the American families in the communities they live in and are a part of. And, then there are some high-skilled immigrants who want to pay it forward and help their communities and remote communities with access to proper healthcare. Such immigrants are truly the embodiment of the American spirit and values! Unfortunately no matter the noble cause or thoughts such high-skilled immigrants have, if you were born in India, you do not have access or pathways to realizing such dreams.
We extend our sincere gratitude to Dr. Tarun for coming forward with his story. His story represents the peril and issues well-qualified practicing immigrant physicians face in this country today. He, and thousands of physicians like him, are yet another casualty of a severely broken and antiquated immigration system that has put well-qualified, contributing immigrants into never ending green card backlogs just because they were born in India. Take a moment to listen to Dr. Tarun!
We hope this inspires you to do anything that you can to make your stories heard and make your friends, colleagues, and lawmakers aware about the issue of green card backlogs!

We write our federal and state agencies.
Yet none of them speak for the Displaced Americans in America.
Displaced because we have more population than we have jobs.
Displaced because we have watched as our jobs were sent to other countries.
Displaced because of a massive tidal wave of non-immigrant guest workers, illegal immigrants and even those born here through parents of these people.
Many of us have served our country in the Military.
Yet our own government prefers to hide behind employment numbers that do not count the long term unemployed.
And our media will tell the plight of these people, but not their own citizens.
Why is that?
