Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration

Pres. Arroyo Meets Pres. Obama

Rate this Entry

Yesterday Philippines President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's met with US President Barack Obama in Washington DC. Ms. Arroyo was the first Southeast Asian President to be greeted at the White House. Ms. Arroyo sought to discuss economic, diplomatic and national security issues.

Philippine Senate Minority Leader Aquilino Q. Pimentel Jr urged Ms. Arroyo to press Mr. Obama on nurse immigration issues. GMANews reports that Sen. Pimentel said that if Ms. Arroyo can get "a quota of 20,000 nurses a year, that would be a great economic bonanza for our nurses and their families."

Ms Arroyo's other engagements on Friday called for meetings with Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, who has repeatedly called for increased nursing and healthcare visa quotas.

Note on the Death of Fmr. Pres. Aquino. As Philippine readers of this Blog surely know, Former President Corazon Aquino died Friday (Saturday in the Philippines). The Musillo Unkenholt firm recognizes the great leadership that Ms. Aquino played in the "people power" movement in the 1980s and would like Philippine readers to know that we will keep the Aquino family and the Philippine people in our thoughts and prayers.

    Hello Chris,

    Any progress in CIR and as a result on our Nurse Bill?
    Healthcare Bill is delayed until September now. What is
    the fate of the Nurses like waiting for visa number? Do
    you think we can hope for something in the next six months or so.

    Will appreciate your comments.
