Hi there,

I am writing to you to ask you for your support for H-4 Dependent Spouses to Apply for Employment Authorization. H-4 dependent spouses of principal H-1B non-immigrants who have begun the process of seeking lawful permanent resident (LPR) status through employment and have extended their authorized period of admission or "stay" in the U.S. under section 104(c) or 106(a) of Public Law 106-313, also known as the American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act of 2000 (AC21). Allowing the eligible class of H-4 dependent spouses to work encourages professionals with high demand skills to remain in the country and help spur the innovation and growth of U.S. companies, and thus allow the United States to remain a world leader in high technology. Already published in the Unified Agenda......

Please pass this rule!!!!

Thanks and Regards!

Harjeet Kaur

I had been working for last 8 years in India and was taking care of my own family but ever since I got married and came to states I can not help my family at all because this big country does not allow me to work.This is really upsetting and kind of degrading people coming to the United States from other country.On one hand You permit people who you think are the best suitable candidates for a particular task to make your nation strong but on the other hand you simply restrict people to work who actually are the support behind.I do not feel that This country should grow like this..I m sure H4s who are not allowed to work are not happy and not spending a normal life here.they are stuck and want to feel equal.I wish if you could understand the severity of this situation and approve this Bill.Hoping for a good news.
Please Pass this Bill. It is extremely crucial for talented people who are currently living on dependent visa
We all know US is always raising voice for Humanitarian rights. But why they are silent about this foolish law that H4 dependent can not work. The right way for any leader is to provide an open path for all humans irrespective of the race. Hope Mr. Obama will change this foolish law so that all H4 dependent can work just like L2 dependents. I strongly support this law on humanitarian basis. Thank you.
Being not allowed to work on H4 visa is a serious crime against humanity and is deprived his/her legal rights to earn the livelihood of their family as a single earning member on h1b1 visa cannot sustain his/her entire whole family. Plz do the needful at the earliest as it is the serious issue against humanity rights to livelihood !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please pass this Rule. I am now in my 7th year in US on dependent Visa. Not having work permit makes you feel worthlelss. Please pass this rule.
This should happen soon, my wife is an engineer and she cannot work since we come to US due to this issue
