URGENT: AMERICANS CALL CONGRESS! https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials NO TO S2603 NO TO S386
Dear Iowa: Please boycott this doctor from India, Pranav Singh, who calls a US Senator names on twitter because he didn’t get his way. Boycott while you can. Foreigners are already influencing US immigration policy, while American needs are ignored. Soon they will make it illegal to boycott. Exercise your rights before you lose them.
Additionally, Dr. Pranav Singh, a graduate of a medical school in India, should be practicing in India, where they have a serious shortage of doctors. Delhi and/or India invested in his education, it seems. If so, India is being robbed by his absence. He clearly doesn’t care about the needs of his own country, or he would be back home in India. Then he calls US Senator Durbin names? Perhaps Dr. Pranav Singh looked in the mirror and was describing himself?
Meanwhile, there are graduates of US medical schools who are left without the residencies needed to practice, because foreigners, like Pranav Singh, are taking them: https://doctorswithoutjobs.org/one-doctors-quest-for-residency US Medical Schools have always been very costly. That needs to be addressed to bring down costs of medical care.
URGENT: AMERICANS CALL YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS!

NO TO S2603 DURBIN’S “RELIEF” FOR IMMIGRANTS ACT;
NO TO S386 (aka Mike Lee’s INDIA FIRST ACT).
NO TO ANY BILL WHICH REMOVES PER COUNTRY GREEN CARD CAPS.
NO TO ANY BILL INCREASING PER COUNTRY FAMILY JOINING GREEN CARDS.
NO TO ANY BILL WHICH INCREASES GREEN CARDS.
Educate yourselves about immigration-population and the environment: https://www.numbersusa.com
Pranav’s Singh’s practicing medicine in the USA works against America’s interests and India’s interests. If he is still awaiting his green card, he should GO HOME. Regardless, he should be boycotted. It is unseemly and frightening for medical doctors to talk about politics. It is worse for them to call names.
Dr. Pranav Singh, MD, a graduate of Maulana Azad Medical College in India, and pulmonologist practicing in Mason City, Iowa calls US Senator Durbin names for blocking S386: https://archive.li/aUmGp Durbin’s bill (S2603 RELIEF Act) promotes more green cards, which makes it even worse. But, Asian-Indians apparently want to hog more green cards for themselves or something. Only the devil knows, and perhaps Kali. Mike Lee’s S386 AND Durbin’s RELIEF Act (S2603) are both against the interests of Americans. It’s not simply loss of American jobs, but overpopulation.

“Battling doctor shortage, Indian hospitals offer intensive care from afar” by Aditya Kalra, 7 Feb 2016, Reuters, https://de.reuters.com/article/us-india-hospitals-idUSKCN0VG12Q
“Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC) is a medical college in New Delhi, India affiliated to University of Delhi and run by the Delhi government. It is named after Indian freedom fighter and first education minister of independent India Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. It was established in 1959 at Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg near Delhi Gate… MAMC Delhi was ranked 14th among medical colleges in India in 2019 by the National Institutional Ranking Framework in 2019.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maulana_Azad_Medical_College
This says that it’s not well-ranked AT ALL: https://www.webometrics.info/en/Asia/India?page=2
Meanwhile, US trained doctors aren’t able to practice:
Over the course of seven years (2011-18) there were 14,759 US trained medical doctors who did not gain admissions to residency training. Meanwhile, 27,866 foreign trained medical doctors with H-B or J-1 visas, gained admission to residency training. US taxpayer dollars from Medicare pays for residency training for 3700 non US international medical graduates per year. Meanwhile, there are 1800 US trained doctors without a job each year. Dr. Medina of Doctors without Jobs, says that he never failed any of his classes and earned honors in five of them. Meanwhile, some foreign trained doctors who had failed classes were chosen over him. It is widely assumed that foreign trained medical doctors are placed in rural areas that cannot attract US doctors. However, medical doctors on J-1 visas are routinely placed in New York, Michigan, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania, notes Medina. And, “according to a story in Time, one internal medicine program reported that 60 percent of its incoming residents are on, or are supposed to be on, H-1B visas.” Foreign trained doctors don’t have the high level of student debt that US trained doctors do. It costs a quarter of a million dollars or more to study medicine in the United States. See: https://doctorswithoutjobs.org/one-doctors-quest-for-residency/
To add insult to injury, Dr. Medina’s father is an immigrant from El Salvador who fought for the United States in the Vietnam War. It’s like the longer you live in the United States, the less you are wanted.
Excerpt from a comment on the doctors without jobs site:
“The competition between U.S. citizens and foreign medical graduates is not fair because:
1) Foreign grads are usually younger since med schools are only five or six years unlike the U.S. where the pre-residency journey can take 8 to 10 years.
2) Foreign nationals come with almost no debt and usually get support from their families to pass the USMLEs over the period of 1 or 2 years, while U.S. grads usually support themselves and can’t afford to study for a year or 2 after graduation!
3) Foreign nationals illegally share old questions among each other and sometimes buy the actual exam question bank like the incident that took place in two foreign countries awhile back.” https://doctorswithoutjobs.org/one-doctors-quest-for-residency/
Some branches of the US military used to have six year Med School programs, and you serve as a military doctor the number of years they paid for your schooling. They probably still have these programs. Who knows where you may end up, however.
In a comment here, they suggest that you ask to see a US citizen doctor. This isn’t a perfect fix, either, as US citizenship is given away too easily: https://doctorswithoutjobs.org/ama-lobbies-for-more-foreign-doctors-but-qualified-americans-shut-out/
