Washington sources reported that two powerful Democratic women senators have urged the Trump administration not to go ahead with its decision to revoke authorization to immigrants on H-4 visas, a majority of who are Indian-Americans, as doing so would impact more than 100,000 women. Accordingly H-4 visas are issued by US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to immediate family members spouse and children under 21 years of age of the holder of H-1B visa, the most sought after among Indian IT professionals.



Meanwhile Senators Kamala Harris from California and Kirsten Gillibrand from New York wrote a letter on the matter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and USCIS Director L Francis Cissna. Furthermore the letter comes after Department of Homeland Security told a US court last week it is going to revoke employment authorization of H-4 visa holders and a notification in this connection is to be issued in less than three months.

Moreover the Trump administration is reviewing the H-1B visa policy that it thinks is being misused by companies to replace American workers and it has said publicly and also in its court filing it wants to revoke work permits to H-4 visa holders. Hence the move will have a major impact on Indian women as they are a major beneficiary of the Obama era rule.
