A court case that challenged the decision of Obama administration to grant work authorization to spouses of H1-B visa holders will be responded by Trump administration in 60 days.
This decision of the previous Obama regime in its concluding days was though welcomed by the H1-B community majority of who were Indians; it was challenged by many US groups in a federal court in the Washington DC.
The Department of Justice had filed an appeal on February 1 in the District of Columbia Circuit’s Court of Appeals. It was entitled as approval proposal to withhold the proceedings for 60 days period.
This 60 day period has been requested by the Government to permit sufficient time to the current leadership staff to review the issue.
Immigration Voice has said that this is very worrisome as Attorney General Jeff Sessions had termed the H-4 clause as a modification in US immigration laws detrimental to the US workers. It has also said that rule had, in fact, permitted several H-4 visa holders to start business ventures in the US that would recruit several US workers. These American workers would have otherwise not been a position to secure jobs, explained immigration Voice.
Immigration Voice declared its decision to intervene in the lawsuit for saving jobs contending that this was the only option to safeguard the civil rights of its members and their families that included US citizens who are children, quotes NDTV.
Aman Kapoor Co-founder and President of Immigration Voice has said that after the clear decision from the District Court that there was no basis to even file this case there was nothing remaining for the Attorneys of the Department of Justice to deliberate with their leaders.
The statement of the government seeking 60 days time period is detrimental for the members of Immigration Voice. Failure to offer a strong defense of the decision of the District court is a threat that will form a convention restricting H-4 visa holders from being employed as per the existing legal framework.
As a result, the present scenario demands intervention from Immigration Voice to safeguard the current and future work authorization of the members added Mr. Kapoor.
