US lawmakers, IT firms against ending work permit to spouses”

The US President, in a bid to attain the objectives of "Buy American, Hire American", will implement an executive order signed by him last April, which will bar wives of H1B visa holders from obtaining employment.

TOI reported yesterday that the U.S. plans to revoke a policy which enables spouses of H-1B visa holders to obtain an employment authorisation document (EAD).

Influential lawmakers and representatives of the American IT industry, including Facebook, have opposed the Trump administration's proposed plan to withdraw work permits to the spouses of H-1B visa holders, a majority of whom are Indian professionals.

Siddaramaiah didn't explicitly say that but it's what he implied when he tagged external affairs minister Swaraj in a tweet linked to a TOI article + which said spouses of H-1B workers in the United States will no longer be able to seek employment or set up their own business.

Ms. Jayapal said while there was need for reforming the H-1B programme to ensure that it is not misused, there can not be any question on the fact that immigration is essential for America's identity and economy. The H1-B Visa, meanwhile, is a non-immigrant visa that allows U.S. companies to hire foreign workers on a temporary basis in speciality occupations such as Science and Information Technology. The Trump administration is planning to terminate this provision.

More than 100,000 H-4 visa holders have so far been beneficiary of this rule.

The US is India's top export destination with shipment worth $ 47.9 billion shipped to the country in 2017-18, a growth of 13 per cent over the previous year. These lawmakers were speaking at an event hosted the US India Friendship Council, an organisation led by prominent Indian American businessman Swadesh Chatterjee.

The administration can think of granting limited work authorization to the H4 holders which will be critical for the employers to retain a very high level of the work force. He had tightened the norms relating to eligibility for an H-1B visa, a popular work visa for Indian technology workers, are also on the anvil.

In the past year, several media outlets reported that the H1-B visa was a significant cause of concern and enormous uncertainty prevails over attempts to repeal the visa.

According to the New York Times, more than 80 percent of the recipients for H1-B visas are from India.

He had also worked for the successful transition from only then immigrants to the lawful permanent residents also.
