Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

This is going off-track again. We are not fighting the Uncle Sam here! We are trying to get them to fix a glitch which was not expected to occur in the first place. H4s were not supposed to work per design but back then nobody expected GC backlogs to grow so large. This situation is something which was not foreseen and now that it exists, people are trying to fix it (admittedly they are taking their own sweet time here but there are bigger problems which have been stuck forever without resolution - tell me a country which is super efficient in rule making).

We should not forget what got this rule rolling in the first place - the main reason they introduced this is to retain talents (from what I have been able to gather) . They did not want high-skilled labor to leave due to inability of spouses to work. It was not out of any concern about domestic abuse or being H1 slaves.

Trust me, anybody who is abusing his/her spouse is not going to stop just because the spouse gets an EAD. Domestic abuse is a serious and prevalent problem which is irrelevant of spouse's ability to work. Yes, it might give the spouse a sense of empowerment but he/she still 'depends' on H1 for its validity. They do have programs in place to help victims already and they will point to that if we bring this to the table.

So my two cents is that we focus on the original pitch for the rule which is retaining talent and also not-wasting talent (many excellent talents are suppressed by H4 limitation) . We can mention spousal/employee abuse but lets not make it the main pitch as its clearly not the case. Also, this is not a fight with Uncle Sam since we are the ones who chose to be here.

I side with justanotherone here. We are under stress and there are many families stuck in a limbo due to the backlogs. But we should not over-react as our lives are much better than many others all over the world (including USA). We have to remember that we still have choices and we do earn much more than what any govt. will deem as adequate for a livelihood.

Again, this does not mean that we should not work towards making our lives better here, rather, it means that we should be realistic in our approach while doing so. We cannot be overly pretentious about our situation and play victims of crimes that we are not of. Comparing this to slavery, soldiers etc. is over the top reaction and will only bring on ridicule to our cause. It is understandable folks are frustrated and that is what is causing all these rants. However, if we are so desperate, we should come together and confront the lawmakers in Washington by protests/marches (not sure if we ll be able to gather more than 50 members though - so much for the 'Large group of ppl')

PS: I personally believe that the Twitter, Email and Postcard campaign is sufficient given that we are pretty close to the destination. Been only a few days since Leon's session and he did mention that rule is very much alive. Also hats off to members who did go to the session in person and stand up for the community.

yes i looked for his twitter id but it seems that he doesn't have one. we can only tweet him through @DHSgov. @jehjohnson is somebody else. pls double check.



My bad.. did not check that id.. looks like @DHSgov is the only option.

Buzzinga - Can you add Jeh Johnson's twitter Id to the list as well. I recall reading an earlier post which mentioned that Jeh Johnson needs to approve the rule to take it forward. Not sure whether its true but it makes sense since he is the DHS chief.

Now that he is about to address the media, this would be a good time to knock on his door too (at least for the next two days). His id - @jehjohnson.

Not sure why there is so much paranoia now after such a long wait. Especially when there is so much traction on the topic following Obama's announcement. Just hope people remain a little more patient and stop hurling abuses and sarcastic comments at each other.

As for Senseguru and his comments - he has been an active participant for long in this thread and has posted valuable information as early as May. Most of the information he had provided did come out true later (you can simply check his previous posts and look at the timeline of rule). He has made it clear its matter of days and has also said that you can either take his word or leave it. So no point in trying to bully him over to give more information or smirk at his standing. Just relax and try to be useful rather than bully around and spread negativity.
