Dear Editor:
Several years ago, Canadian nurses arrived here by the score, under TN visas. All that was required was a State license, a job offer and a $50 fee at the point of entry. Husbands received TD visas. In a short while, I-140's were filed and approved in about 30 days, I-485's were filed with I-765's for the husbands who received EAD cards in about 10 days. The waiting periods, of course, lengthened, and then Sen. Spector (R-PA) introduced a "visa screen certificate" requirement. It took a year to decide how to administrate the program. The Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing (CGFN) of Philadelphia then charged $325 for a nurse to get the certificate. More time for husbands to wait and too much 'red tape' for the nurses. The flow of nurses was effectively reduced.
