Is there any channel we can let the US immigration law change to allow those foreign medical graduates stay and get the green card?
Not sure about medical students from other countries but India require all Indian doctors going to US (or for any other country) for higher studied, to sign a bond stating that they will return back to India after studies. Also US consulate requires a NDA signed by govt of India saying that India does not have any objection with this student studying in US. Here is more information about this.
