Work Permits for H-4 visa holders to be cancelled.
Posted on December 15, 2017
The Trump Administration considers cancelling regulations allowing spouses of H-1B visa holders to obtain work authorization documents and work while on H-4 visas.
According to CNN, the Department of Homeland Security offered little context for its decision to reverse the Obama-era rule, citing only the new administration’s “America first” emphasis on immigration policy.
The Trump administration also plans to reevaluate and likely narrow the eligibility rules for H-1B visas, saying it wants “to increase focus on truly obtaining the best and brightest foreign nationals.”
