Legislation seeking to obstruct the Trump administration from denying the work authorization of H1-B visa holders spouses, which comprise Indians, has been launched in the US Congress by 02 lawmakers who stated that excluding this benefit would force several international workers to utilize their talents to fight against American businesses.
H-4 visas are announced to the H-1B foreign worker's spouses. The H-1B visa is coming under a non-immigrant visa by which several Indians workers are engaged in US organizations. It enables the US organizations to employ international workers in specialty professions that need technical or theoretical expertise. It is the common sought-after visa with Indian IT experts.

H-4 visas are announced only to very near or immediate family members of the holders of H-1B visa. The move by lawmakers Zoe Lofgren and Anna G Eshoo to start the Protection Act of H-4 Employment come amidst decision by the Trump administration to cancel an Obama-era rule that continues work authorization to the H-1B visa holders spouses.
Since the rule was executed, above 100,000 workers, mainly women, that too from India have obtained employment authorization, gaining the US’ competitiveness and reducing the economic burden on plenty of H-1B workers and their families, the 02 lawmakers announced after starting the bill in the House.
The Protection Act of H-4 Employment prevents the Trump administration from denying this essential rule, which it is required to do by the close of the year, they told.
Excluding this benefit would produce a painful choice for several immigrants to either break up their families or return to their home nations and use their talents to fight against American businesses, Eshoo told.
