“Dr. Ken”: Ken Jeong as Dr. Ken Park.  Thank you ABC.
“Three Rivers”: Daniel Henney as Dr. David Lee; “House, M.D.”: Kai Penn as Dr. Lawrence Kutner;
Kenneth Choi as obstetrician in first season, episode “Maternity” which aired December 7, 2004, and
anonymous Asian American men who appeared on the hospital’s board of directors and disciplinary

Filipino veterans were granted citizenship in recognition of their service to the U.S. during World War II. Many of their children, however, were not. Due to the volume of immigrant visa applications from the Philippines, it can take more than 20 years for families to be reunited.
Under the Filipino World War II Veterans Parole Program (FWVP) program, the adult children of Filipino World War II veterans, along with their spouses and children under age 21, can finally be together in the U.S. while they await an available immigrant visa.
The Trump Administration terminated the FWVP program.
