Default Is family medicine friendly to IMGs

Hi, i'm an IMG without GC, I would like to know if family medicine is still friendly to IMGs. I've noticed many IMG applicants with great U scores fail to get into FM residency programs.

It is the most popular option among IMGs after internal Med. Though it doesnt pay very well in US.
