I really think that there should be a law that allows us international students to work certain hours while going to school. I see some of these nurses in hospitals and nursing homes, who hate to be there and treat their patient like some kind of object and don't deserve to be there at all and are still able to work and make money. I love helping others and I know I can make a way better nurse then those lazy ones out there.
I paid for school here, and worked very hard or as hard as US citizens to get my nursing license and I can't even work. It makes me depressed, mad and frustrated every time I look that my nursing license. I understand not letting illegal immigrants to work and stuff, but for someone who is well qualified and have credentials like myself to not have an opportunity after all the time, money and hard work we put towards earning the degree and education, to go through this awful situation is totally unfair.
I really think that there should be some law to help international students to let them work legally and go to school if they have a degree and qualification. I hope things will change soon and you will come up with some better and fair regulations for international students.
The Immigration law is broken in this country. It is good for nothing. It does not serve people that want to do right either the ones that don't. It does not matter anymore. IT DOES NOT WORK!. It must change...There are many cases like ours, and even worse. Its really sad when we see bunch of people getting away doing illegal stuff and even crimes at times, and someone like me who is trying to make a living off of my education which in turn helps US citizens in need of help cannot work because of law they have for immigrants. Its very sad and unfortunate. Government need to come up with better plans. After all this nation is made up of immigrants.

Do these counts of international students reflect both public and private institutions?
International students can add diversity to a college or university, enriching the experience of other students on campus. Schools with a strong global presence often have a wealth of cultural groups and events, allowing international students an opportunity to share their food, music and traditions with their U.S. peers. International students may have troubles in classes when they first arrived. Cultural differences present very real personal and professional challenges in academics.
Language issues are immediately apparent. Because of the language limitations, it is not easy for international student to fully understand what the professors say or what
