Trump Admin. to End Work Permits for Spouses of H-1B Workers

Published:  

Sources have said that the Trump administration is planning to end the Obama-era rule that allowed spouses of H-1B foreign workers to receive a work permit. Under this new rule 41,526 people received work permits from Oct. 2015-Sept. 2016.

In 2015 Pres. Obama created a work permit for certain H-4 visa holders, even though under this visa they were not allowed to hold a job or be issued a Social Security number.

On this 2017 Veterans Day weekend, there are lots of general well-wishes issued. But how many of us have ever given individual recognition even to all the Veterans with whom we attended school? At my high school class reunion last year, many of us were horrified to realize that we had never even made a list which would allow us to do this.

NumbersUSA's 21 years of work toward immigration policies in the national interest is driven in part by a belief in national communities and their ability to watch out for the welfare of all members of that community, especially the weakest and most vulnerable. We honor those who serve our national community in all forms.
