Denial to work permits for spouses of H-IB Visa holders scrap requests

The most unexpected move by Donald Trump’s administration to end work permits to the spouses of H-IB Visa holders would adversely affect the American economy.Lakhs of Indians who hold H-4 visa working now may lose jobs, in turn, lead to domestic problems, said the lawmakers who spoke in an event hosted by US-India Friendship Council, backed by very important person Swadesh Chatterjee, the Indian American businessman.He also expressed this enactment would go against the interest of women, who are equally or better qualified than their spouses.The right to work for spouses was implemented in 2015.

“I oppose the move to terminate work permits to H-4 visas,” said Ms. Pramila Jayapal, the first Indian American woman elected to the house of representatives.

Several prominent Indian Americans like Ro Khanna, the representative from California, said they worked with Obama Administration to get it approved issuing work permits to spouses of H-IB visa holders, a benefit to the US by their skills.

If immigration does not take place America’s economy may not get the required boost, can affect its economy on a long run.
