US may stop spouses of H1B visa holders from working




Trump administration is considering revoking an Obama-era rule that extends work authorisation to the spouses of H1B visa holders, a move that could affect thousands of Indian workers and their families

Washington:
The Trump administration is considering revoking an Obama-era rule that extends work authorisation to the spouses of H1B visa holders, a move that could affect thousands of Indian workers and their families.

Since 2015, the spouses of H1B, or high-skilled, visa holders waiting for green cards have been eligible to work in the US on H-4 dependent visas, under a rule introduced by the previous Obama administration.

In 2016, more than 41,000 of H4 visa holders were issued work authorisation. This year till June more than 36,000 H4 visa holders were issued work authorisation.
The H1B programme attracts foreign specialised workers to come to the United States for employment, many of them from India and China.

“DHS is proposing to remove from its regulations certain H4 spouses of H1B nonimmigrants as a class of aliens eligible for employment authorisation,” said the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in a latest regulation.

According to the notice, the changes is being made in light of President Trump’s ‘Buy American and Hire American’ order issued earlier this year.

It's fine. It is back to status quo ante. When many of us previously were on H-1B spouse did not have work authorization. Good time to bring up kids!

It is such a waste. Well qualified people are made to sit at home.

It is also a hardship on girls as they are dependent on the spouse.
Particularly when the relationship is in trouble.
