Rescinding of H-4 visa work permit in final stages: Trump admin 25.5.2018 General News
The move to rescind work authorisation to certain categories of H-4 visa holders is in final stages, the Trump administration has told a US court. H-4 visas are issued to the spouses of H-1B visa holders, a significantly large number of whom are high-skilled professionals from India. The Trump administration is planning to end the Obama-era rule allowing spouses of H1-B visa holders to work legally in the US, a move that could have a devastating impact on more than 70,000 H-4 visa holders who have work permits. The proposed rule is currently in final clearance, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) told a federal court in a status update.

Several Indian-American IT professionals have held two rallies in the US, demanding an end to the long and massive green card backlog by eliminating per-country limit quota. The rallies were organised over the weekend in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Participants argued that per country quota on issuing of Green Cards per annum was the main reason for the backlog. They displayed posters with 'Remove Per Country Limits for employment based Green cards', '300,000 waiting for 90 years' and 'What did I do wrong'.
