Can the coronavirus cure a broken immigration system? Can a pandemic change the anti-immigrant rhetoric that has been emanating from the White House for the last three years?

But many are hoping for positive immigration policy changes that will help immigrants who are working as healthcare professionals.
Healthcare professionals—like so many other immigrant groups—face incredible visa restrictions, but all that could be easily relaxed to enable their desperately needed help in the COVID-19 battle.
