Help Petition to congress

Please sign this petition to call upon Congress to increase the number of GME Residency Slots for US Citizen & resident IMGs.
http://wh.gov/QL0

This also bodes well for FMGs as the more american IMGs will be taken in by new programs, the more seats will remain empty in regular programs for FMGs.

I don't know if they'd respond that much to a petition predominated by IMGs and FMGs.

Even though I think this is a great idea, I do believe that if more American citizens (for whom the Congress is actually responsible) were taken on board with this, then this petition would stand a better chance!

I agree. I meant to say that it might actually damage the objective of the petition if IMGs were to dominate the petition, because the Congress has no obligation to non-nationals.
