rural physician

 Visa ban could make doctor shortage in rural America even worse


Summary: Because of Donald Trump's temporary immigration ban that restricts seven countries with the population mostly Muslim, from entering the US it will mean that there will be a shortage of doctors in rural areas of America. With many of the doctors in these areas not being permanent residents the temporary immigration ban will cause many of these doctors to disappear. This ban will also make it harder for people in these areas to receive the health care they need as there won't be enough doctors.

Connection: America has banned other groups of people from coming in previously, an example of this is the Chinese Exclusion Act.

Question: Do you think bringing in doctors from other countries would be smart to fix the problem with a shortage of doctors in rural areas?
Do you think the temporary immigration ban is right?

  1. I think it would be smart to bring other doctors in because the world is in constant need of them. No the temporary immigration ban is not right because it may cause some to not be able to visit family. Also if they are coming home from a trip can't come back home.

    1. I agree with you, there will be huge problems if there are not enough doctors in the rural areas. The cause of this would be the temporary immigration ban as this causes many doctors to disappear.

  2. Bringing in doctors from other countries is smart because in many places around the world there is a shortage of doctors and medical supplies. Therefore, bringing in doctors from other countries is the smart thing to do. The temporary immigration ban is not right because it causes people lives to stop and not allow them to pursue their lives any further because they are stuck in one place. I also agree with Sara it causes people to not be able to visit their families.
