Open internship option to H4 dependent children during college study.

Messages Sent So Far
? This will help businesses to utilize US trained fresh talent pool at minimal cost.
? This will also help USCIS/ DHS economically when they file their change of status to EAD.
? Children of H1B holders don't have any scholarship option in any federal / state university, just because their priority date is not current though their parents have been contributing in the growth of US economy for close to a decade.
? Many of them aspire to pursue prolonged process of medicine education but are forced to quit because many of them pay international / ?out-of-state? tuition fee, even though their parents have been paying federal and state tax for many years.

Allow EAD for dependent children on H4 visa - Considering that undocumented children get deportation relief and EAD on DACA (as they should), while dependent children on H4 visa just age out and have to move into F1 and H1 visas (and to further endless queues) to continue to live in USA with their families. These children mostly tend to have lived most of their lives here and really know no other country as well as USA, They all tend to be well educated and would contribute economically if provided EAD. This would also help them to partly fund their higher education cost. At the moment, the entire educational cost is borne by the single employed H1B parent, since these children are not eligible for scholarships of federal student loans.

Please help them by opening internship options to them during their college study. They are like your kids and they also need some support to pursue American DREAM.

I support this bill. Children who finished high school from USA should be given H4 EAD.

I'm going through with this hurdle and I strongly agree on having EAD for H4 dependent student. My daughter who started studying since her 2nd grade and she is now Senior in high school. Its unfortunate that she would still be considered as "Foreign student" . I have stayed in NJ state for about 10 years now and have paid Federal and State taxes for all those years. Please consider students completed their high school here in US to have the EAD

I strongly support this petition for granting H4 EAD to Kids and preserving their status after age 21 to get the GC, which parents had been in line for ages. There is a large parity when compared to H4 Kids with other categories (DACA, L2 Kids). There needs a fair law for every Kid without politicizing or demoralizing the situation around categories. H4 EAD for Kids will help them earn and contribute towards their college education and become better individuals. They are the future of The United States in no less than the other Kids in the country. One Fact: They are LEGAL here and they are KIDS. They should be given provisions to shape their life. System should not become a bottleneck for it.

I brought my child to U.S. as H4 when she was 3 years old. I strongly support this appeal to allow EAD for H4 when the principal beneficiary has I-140 approved.

I brought my child to U.S. as H4 when he was 12 years old. Financing college is a struggle. Besides not being eligible for scholarship, we can't even take education loan because I am still waiting for Green Card. The problem H4 child face while waiting for Green Card backlog is unconstitutional. I strongly support this apeal to allow EAD for H4 when the principal beneficiary has I-140 approved.
