H-1B Visa holders’ big relief from Trump government, many Indians will get benefit

Business

Recently, Donald Trump has posed a threat to foreigners working in America by the government. The government had earlier announced that H-1B visa holders may have to leave the country. But in the meantime a news of relief has come. Now the Trump government has also stood in favor of the right of H-1B visa holders to work in America. 

The Home Ministry (DHS) argued this week in the US district court district Washington that US technology professionals who challenged the 2015 order approving H-4 visa holders to work have not suffered any such harm. H-4 visas are granted by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to close family members (spouses and children up to the age of 21) of H-1 visas. Most of the H-1B visa holders are Indian IT professionals. It is generally given to those who have already started the process of obtaining employment-based legal permanent resident status.

The DHS said in its application on May 5 that the argument given by the American technical personnel of ‘Save Jobs USA’ had assessed the economic loss to its members. ‘Save Jobs USA’ argued in a lawsuit filed in 2015 that a rule enacted by the Obama administration would harm its members who are American technology workers
