Doctor shortage could hurt Ohio rural areas

From Dayton Business:

“Ohio needs doctors. Doctors from Muslim-majority countries have responded to that need. It seems likely that a Trump travel ban will turn that win-win into a loss,” Policy Matters researchers wrote in a recent blog post.

The judges that blocked the ban cited Trump’s own statements about Muslims and noted that his campaign referred to the travel restrictions as a “Muslim ban,” which would be unconstitutional on the grounds of religious freedom.

Trump called their rulings “overreach,” and said he will take the case to the Supreme Court, which could ultimately determine whether the ban remains in place.

“If it does stay in place, it’s going to negatively impact the access to prmiary care for a lot of areas of the country that depend on these international graduates to provid their health care,” Hakkila said
