60 U.S. lawmakers urge Biden to expand work permits for H-1B visa holders; spouses A group of 60 U.S. lawmakers urged President-elect Joe Biden to repeal a policy of the Trump administration and extend the validity of work permit documents for H4 visa holders who are spouses of H-1B visa holders, most of whom are highly eligible Indian women. An H-4 visa is given to immediate family members (spouses and children under 21 years of age) of H-1B visa holders, most of whom are Indian IT professionals, by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). It is usually given to those who have already begun the process of obtaining legal permanent resident status based on jobs. We respectfully request that on the first day of your presidency, the Department of Homeland Security publish a Federal Register notice extending the validity period of all expired H4 EADs, which the members of the US House of Representatives wrote to Biden in a letter dated 16 December.
On January 20, Biden, a Democrat, is expected to be inaugurated as the 46th US President. In the year 2015… A regulation was issued by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that enables some H4 dependent spouses of H-1B visa holders to legally obtain jobs in the United States, the letter said. This regulation was a significant step towards correcting gender inequalities in our immigration system, as it added that about 95% of H4 visa holders who have obtained work permits are women. The Republican Trump administration told a US court soon after coming to power that it plans to revoke such a law. Before the rule was granted, depression and loneliness when moving to a foreign country and not being allowed to work outside the home were defined by many women on H4 visas. Unfortunately, before this is put right, these women are losing and will continue to lose their jobs, undermining their families’ lives and the functioning of employers in our districts, the letter stated.
The signatories to the letter include Dr. Ami Bera, Ro Khanna, Raja Krishnamoorthi and Pramila Jayapal of the Indian-American Congress. Congresswomen Bonnie Watson Coleman, Rashida Talib, Barbara Lee and Judy Chu are among the other primary signatories.

As about 95 percent of H-4 visa holders who have obtained work authorization are women, they wrote, this regulation was a significant step towards correcting gender inequalities in our immigration system. These women on H-4 visas work in a number of fields such as critical healthcare workers, and in pharmaceutical companies’ research and development positions; as we continue to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, these women play incredibly important roles, the letter said. We are optimistic that your new Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security will rectify, the legislators wrote, the systemic processing problems created by the Trump Administration. As of December 2017, 1,26,853 applications for H-4 visa holders were authorized by USCIS for job authorization. According to a 2018 Congressional Research Service (CRS) survey, 93 percent of approved H-4 employment authorization applications were issued to people born in India and five percent were issued to people born in China.
