Many foreign born physical therapists who are also schedule A workers;  currently working in the United States on temporary visas with approved immigrant petitions and have been stuck in green card backlog for decades. Physical therapists are licensed and regulated by states and work in various settings including hospitals, nursing homes, acute rehab facilities, home health, schools, teaching facilities and outpatient settings. At the time of COVID-19 pandemic, we are serving our communities for their rehab needs; however we are limited by the temporary visa restrictions. 
Even though our numbers are small, we would like to make sure our voices are heard. We would like to request you to include physical therapists in Healthcare Workforce Resilience Act so we can serve our communities with more job flexibility and reach out to undeserved areas.
