Immigrant Doctors a Lifeline for Rural Communities

Rate this Entry

I write a book on physician immigration and a large part of my clientele is in this area so this BBC report on the positive impact foreign physicians are making in small towns across America was hardly a surprise to me. But it's nice to see this positive story highlighted. The physician immigration program described in the article expires this year and deserves a permanent reauthorization.

    They will likely pass another temporary extension and hope that the education of foreign spouses who come through marriage to US citizens will take care of the rest!

    'Indian IT industry paid $15 bn in taxes to US govt in 5 years'
    PTI | Mar 22, 2012, 10.46PM IST

    WASHINGTON: In the backdrop of outcry in US against outsourcing, Indian IT industry association NASSCOM today said the sector has paid over USD 15 billion in taxes to US Treasury over a period of five years and created over 280,000 employment opportunities.

    "Indian technology firms are deeply committed to the US marketplace. Both they and their employees are important contributors in their local communities as well as the country as a whole," NASSCOM President Som Mittal said in a statement.

    The report 'India's Tech Industry in the US' said that Indian technology industry has paid more than USD 15 billion in taxes to the US Treasury in the last five years thereby aiding economic recovery in the US.

    Also, Indian technology companies have invested more than USD 5 billion through 128 acquisitions saving and sustaining thousands of jobs in the USA, report added.

    It also said that the direct workforce employed in the US by the Indian IT sector has almost doubled in the last five years to 107,000 and estimates that industry supports more than 280,000 jobs in the US, growing even in a weak economic environment.

    "Leading Indian companies have increased their campus recruitment efforts in the recent years and plan to increase the number of offers made by up to four times in the next two years," a NASSCOM statement said.

    Most of these indirect jobs span across various sectors and at every level in the US economy, it added.

    "It is estimated that industry has invested thousands of hours in community service that have touched half-a-million American lives," the report said.

    I think that's a dumb argument. She hasn't applied for these positions. Maybe she's just happy doing what she does and her job doesn't require much math. She may be dumb but the husband is a big jerk for subjecting his wife to this kind of public ridicule.
