Trump administration indicates that it will terminate Work Permits (EADs) for H-4 Spouses of H-1B Workers
I was interviewed by BBC Radio India on the Trump Administration’s plans to end work permits for H-1B Visa Spouses who are in H-4 classification and waiting up to 11+ years for a green card. Of those affected, approximately 90% of H-4 holders are women, and approx. 90% of said women are Indian.
You don’t have to be an Oracle to realize that these planned changes are among a rash of similar changes, all of which appear to target one particular group: Indian IT professionals. The ultimate aim appears to be to dissuade such professionals from immigrating to the U.S. by making the H-1B program more complicated, unpredictable, expensive, and ultimately untenable.
