AND NOW FOR SOME GOOD NEWS: DHS Plans To Scrap Work Permits For Spouses Of H-1B Visa Holders

The Trump administration plans to rescind an Obama-era rule that allows the spouses of foreign tech workers to get jobs in the U.S. as well.
In a notice published Thursday, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said it would do away with with the so-called H-4 work authorization, which is granted to the spouses of H-1B visa holders. The H-4 program, which was created by the Obama administration in 2015, is currently being challenged in court as an unconstitutional exercise of presidential authority.
DHS did not specify when the change would be made, saying only that “DHS is proposing to remove from its regulations certain H-4 spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants as a class of aliens eligible for employment authorization.”
