I'm writing in response to Mr. Siskind's article on DHHS new waiver program. Our group specializes in physician waivers as well and have one of the 43 DHHS petitions filed. We had the good fortune to file before the new rules, or we would be out of luck. I agree with Mr. Siskind's analysis. My most heartfelt case is a nephrologist (kidney disease). This fine doctor is a specialist who can find no means to stay in the US (where 2 of his 4 children were born) other than a hardship waiver. This is a doctor that works 80 hours a week with dialysis patients, many of whom are sick and dying. The community (whom he served for 8 years while completing his specialty) is in dire need of him, desperately wants him, yet he can not stay. He waits in another country while his petition slowly moves through the pipeline. This is one of the finest gentleman you could know - caring, kind, and passionate for his work. He would make a real contribution to our society. It's a shame that businessmen and students have more immigration alternatives than this hardworking group. Thank you, ILW.COM for allowing me to express my opinion.
