July 1, 2012

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!

This should happen soon, my wife is an engineer and she cannot work since we come to US due to this issue
My wife has a medical degree and completed PhD from leading US University. After doing 2 postdoctoral fellowships she lost her H1B and went on H4 dependent visa. Now it has been 4 years on H4 visa and she has not been able to go back to work due to H1B issues. In the mean time I am still waiting for my priority date. It is such a waste of hard earned education and talent not to mention loosing touch with the current technology and self confidence. This is all in spite of having a PhD in United States. How does this help the country or the individual? These restrictions are destroying lives and careers of thousands of qualified and skilled people. Please approve work permits for H4 visa who have applied for legal immigration (I-140 approved) and waiting for priority date adjustments. Thank you for your consideration.
This is a big step forward.
I have got two master degrees on Finance and business ,but I have stayed at home for 3 yrs due to the h4 work restriction. Now I have a 1 yr old child and wanna give him a better life .So please kindly pass the rule and let me get the work permit. I don't wanna be stuck with it any more. So excited with the new opportunities to come to my life and could NOT wait to earn a better living.

Its been traumatic for my wife after getting married to come from home country where she was employed and was successful in her field. She posses skills which will definitely be useful in several organization. Unfortunately because of her dependent visa (H4) situation she is stuck. I urge the lawmaker and people responsible to take decision on this to do justice to all law abiding, tax paying residents to help them make a better living for themselves and in return help the economy to go forward by allowing these skilled people to work.
I really need a job! Pass this proposal pls
I was a working professional for 5 years in my country before I got married and came here to sit at home and do nothing. All my skills and education earned are getting rotten and without my fault. I really think that this BILL should be past for the betterment of all women who have came in this country and are not able to earn money for their family, for this country.

I request to kindly pass this bill. It will be of bilateral help. Lots and lots of talent is getting wasted at home, trust me on this.
Hello

I have got 2 masters degree from UK and I didnt know coming to US will be a pain. My wife wanted to stay here as she has got a good job and I thought I will get the same. Didn't know much about the H4 strict rules.
Can you please pass this petition so that we all can work as well and bring some more economy into this country rather than staying at home and do nothing.
Please Obama sir look at this way that you or your family member has to sit at home. How would you feel? If you will allow us to work we can pay tax to your country and also your economy will get stronger. I don't understand why US government is not thinking this way. Mr Obama you promised so many things to Mr Modi but you are not letting his nationals to work in your country where as India is helping your country in every way.

Please please take this suggestion onboard and pass this petition.

Please pass this rule ASAP! This will improve US economy, by getting more tax and giving less deductions to tax payers + the H4 person can utilize his/her time more efficiently.
