The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows the US companies to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations.
A 2015 rule issued by US President Donald Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama allowed work permits for certain categories of H-4 visa holders, primarily spouses of those having H-1B work visas waiting for their Green Card, to work in the US. Indians, in particular women, were the greatest beneficiary of this rule, which has been challenged by several US workers with the current Trump administration supporting their cause, saying that it wants to rescind the rule.party, however, did not say exactly when the Congress general secretary received the message.
A three-judge bench of the US Courts of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit sent the case back to a lower court noting that it is “best to remand” to give the district court an opportunity to thoroughly assess and finally determine the merits in the first instance. The court noted that the government has explained that H–1B non-immigrants and their families often face long delays in the process of obtaining permanent residence, and H–4 visa holders’ inability to work during these delays leads to “personal and economic hardships” that worsen over time, “increasing the disincentives for H–1B nonimmigrants to pursue lawful permanent resident status and thus increasing the difficulties that US employers have in retaining highly educated and highly skilled non-immigrant workers”.
