Trump Administration moves court

In the United States, the Trump Administration has proposed a 60-day freeze in employment authorisation for H-4 visa-holders, who are primarily dependent spouses of H-1B visa-holders. The Department of Justice has filed a brief in the Washington DC court of appeals that challenges the decision of the previous Obama Administration to authorise spouses of H1B visa holders to work in the US.

In a statement, Immigration Voice, a non-profit organization working to alleviate the problems faced by legal high-skilled future Americans in the United States said, the Government has asked for adequate time to consider the issues.

Thousands of Indian spouses come in this category, and they won a hard-fought permission to work in America in February 2015, when the Obama administration issued a rule allowing eligible spouses to be employed while the H-1B visa-holder awaits the receipt of lawful permanent residency card called Green card.
