Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

Thank you GETMYGCNOW. I agree with u 100%.

to justanotherone: I have no idea what is your problem and why are you being so personal. We are all fighting HARD for a great cause, NOT JUST for ourselves. We are not fighting for RICH getting RICHER stuff.... It can be true for ur situation.

Put ur selves in several H4 spouses and H4 aging out kids and parents's shoes.... Try to be empathetic. Every H1 family is not so fortunate to have a situation like you probably.

Every day, every moment there's domestic violence and abuse going on in these families. Moreover, think of those parents with aging out H4 kids.... They must be having nightmares and scared which is not much different from the undocumented kids or parents who fear deportation and separation. These kids keep changing their status to student visa and if lucky (?) enough can get H1. Read the story of the kiddo who is on H4, published during the comment period.

We are legal community following all the rules and regulations, paying taxes, SSN ( even though H4 don't have SSN..... NO IDENTITY.... Living in shadows)..... We are not supposed to SUFFER or even fight for it.

I am hoping that once UR spouse gets H4EAD, then u r going to give it away to someone who needs it to survive and not to become richer because u don't think it as important as humanitarian issue.

We are not compelling you to support us, so please, my personal request to you is not to get involved in our hard fight.

Thank u getmygc and prudent for understanding my point. I appreciate Prudent's clarification.

This explanation itself actually gives a solid ground for this strategy. Let's keep campaigning and brainstorm about this DAPA strategy. I would recommend to send emails and letters stating about our disappointment ( USCIS deadline is gone and we even still don't have a specific date ) and give them a heads up even before they open the application period for DAPA in Feb.

We are NOT giving up our legal status, but using this strategy to make them realize. Earlier DACA has been implemented and even been renewed, BUT NOTHING for H4 kids. This worries me a lot and makes me think that if we do not take drastic steps, given the present situation,then there is every possibility of history being repeated.

I am willing to write a letter myself, but don't think it will have an impact otherwise send by the whole community.

This is exactly what I suggested Aditi. Need to be aggressive now. I have been retweeting several times per day, sending emails etc. Looks like nobody cares about our efforts and cause. Anirban , Satish and all of u are working so hard for this cause. No body cares about our economic contribution(tax, Medicare, SSN).

I am sorry to say that I am not willing to wait anymore, NOT even a single day.

I am sorry that I think I was not clear on my suggestions. We are NOT going to ask anyone to change the rules of DAPA for us.

It will be another strategy and just showing an aggressive step to them that even though we r legal parents of US citizens, WE DON'T HAVE the privilege and Right to work. They must let us work first before giving that privilege to any other category.

But this is not happening and we have been patiently waiting for our turn for couple of years now.. that's why we would like to sacrifice our legal status with THEIR permission and apply in the DAPA category.

THIS is JUST another diplomatic way of showing them that we are highly disappointed with their biased treatment, that we , the Legal community willing to give up our legal status becoz our legal status IS NOT HELPING US in ANYWAYs and rather PREFER to be undocumented.

Alike Aditi,I personally too, believe, we seriously NEED to do something DRASTIC and BIG that will be noticed by everybody including media, otherwise we are going to miss the boat this time too, just like when they did DACA. The lives of our H4 kids are still jeopardized.

This is an Humanitarian cause too, Bcoz this rule is leading to too many domestic violence and abuse cases too. If anyone disagrees with my suggestions, plz No personal attacks. No hard feelings and NO worries.

You are right. Friends read this news: "AG nominee backs Obama on immigration actions, cites 'right' to work for all residents". Here's the Link:

Would like to highlight these paras:

"Attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch backed up President Obama on his controversial immigration executive actions during her confirmation hearing Wednesday -- while going as far to say she believed in an illegal immigrant's "right" and "obligation to work."
"I believe that the right and the obligation to work is one that's shared by everyone in this country regardless of how they came here," Lynch said. "If someone is here, regardless of status, I would prefer that they be participating in the workplace than not participating in the workplace."

H4 community has been patient till date.... Waiting for our turn.
I truly appreciate and applaud Anirban, Satish and everyone's efforts.

These are just few suggestions... Please no personal attacks ... Whoever does not like the suggestions, NO Worries please.
1. We should all comment on this above mentioned article about H4EAD.
2. We all know that Feb 20 is the opening day of DACA/ DAPA applications. I personally think that H4 community should write letters or emails to Jeh and Leon before the application period opens or else we will be stuck forever.

In my letter, I am planning to write the following:

since H4 EAD is still not being implemented and we DO NOT have any hope of seeing it being implemented this month(Jan2015), we, the H4 community with due respect and both of your permission, would like to apply for work permit in this category (DAPA). Most of the H4 have US born American citizen kids alike the undocumented parents with US citizen kids(DAPA).
We, the tax paying, law abiding ,legal, highly skilled immigrant community would appreciate your consideration.
