Manju Mohan earned a microbiology degree in her native India before immigrating to the US in 2006. After the H-4EAD visa was announced in 2015, giving her the legal right to work, she became a certified nurse. She was working in Atlanta until USCIS delays put her out of work in November 2020.
Until Nov. 8, I was a licensed nurse working on the COVID-19 frontlines. I had three jobs, often spending 19 hours a day at a rehab facility, a home health company, and the department of public health. Then, in early November, the USCIS put me out of work.
