Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

@AksAri I might be mistaken but the heading clearly says I-765 (EAD) Discussion Forum, so if you cannot discuss the rule then why are you are here, makes me wonder? Haters are every where and I don't believe the government is naive not to pass the rule without careful consideration the PRO's and CON's of this topic.

Anyways I posted in regulations.gov what I felt, which is my right and no one can police my actions in any forum, not even the government. Freedom of speech, check the amendments. I am sure every one is their own master and no need to be schooled. best of luck H4 and this was just a gist I posted, if you read my 20 page letter to the president you will be astonished!

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

@ Satish, If the rule was stopping talent going back then they need to do a better job by not alienating only certain categorize getting EAD. IF L1 and L2 can work and get EAD without any restrictions then why is H1b any different? Actually the visa is mainly to be an immigrant in future and it is the choice of the h1b whether to contribute to the US economy or move to a country where they are treated equally.

The government does have interest in the welfare of h1b they are getting fees for all the petitions for h1b and h4 and this will drastically increase after the rule is proposed.There is no shortage of h1b skill, people from all counties would come to the US to live and work the "American dream" so your argument to say people are going back and impacting business is minimal.

You may know already this year, within 5 days the h1b application was oversubscribed and they had to do lottery system so now figure why EAD is important to all h4. Thanks for your feedback.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

@temusireesha Thank you for feedback, I understand that I can get ITIN from IRS but you need to wait 30 days to get ITIN and have to show a lot of documents to prove you are dependent, I was only implying that SSN# should be given to all so that it is convenient and gives you an identity easily instead of following all the steps you mentioned.
The SSN# does not necessarily be on for work authorization, it can say not authorized to work pending EAD status, until you get EAD :) All that I am saying is we need to have some sort of identity in all the databases so you are recognized as an individual and not as "dependent".

I tried getting Obama care from the healthcare.gov, it took me 3 months to get my health insurance because i didn't have social security and the system didn't recognize ITIN. I eventually had to call BCBSFL and get the application done over the phone by providing ITIN, my argument is SSN should be given so that is convenient to get DL, health Insurance, Bank account instead of the alternative you suggested. Anyways I respect your feedback.

Proud of my wife for posting this :) Good luck to all h4 dependents who are anxious to have this rule passed!

Comment: Respected Sir/Madam,

I would like to first thank the US government for proposing Employment Authorization for certain H4 Dependent spouses. I am confident that all our voices will be heard and a conclusive decision will made by passing this rule and mandated by USCIS.

We understand the thought process and respect the governing regulations in place for providing only certain H4 dependent spouses to be able to work with an I-140 approval for H1b sponsor.

I am one among the many H4 dependents who has traveled across continents to live the "American dream" only to witness travesty, suffering, unwelcome, disenfranchised, felt neglected, lack of empowerment and guilty for choosing a path that is deterrent to my career and aspirations. When I was 17 years old, I started my career supporting my widowed mother, supporting my younger brother to complete his education, taking on responsibilities and challenges that were way beyond my years only to yearn a better future for my family. I had a stable career at Accenture working as a SME accounts payable,earning a decent salary since 2007 until 2011 only to leave my job and family because I married my husband who is on H1B. Since 3 years, I have been at home in the US counting days, gradually losing self confidence as to when I will be given an opportunity to work. I would like to my get my life back and support my husband and family back in India.

Is it my fault to choose and be with the person I love and leave my beloved family to be on H4? Well, if you understand my plight or step into my shoes you will understand how it feels to be handicapped and prejudiced for coming here to the greatest country in the world.

You might argue that you chose this path knowing the rules and regulations of the H4visa, I would like to counter that by saying a married woman should have the rights to choose her calling and be given equal opportunity in any country she chooses to live based on her education, values, career aspirations, dedication and commitment made to her spouse to make a better life under any circumstances. Example countries where spouses are given working visa Canada, Australia.

These are some of the points I would like you to implement in you final rule making.

1) Provide SSN# to all H4 dependents who is authorized to work based on EAD. -This action will provide identity and self-esteem to open bank account, get credit cards to spend, get drivers license which will empower women/man to be independent and not "dependent".

2) Right now you are proposing EAD only for certain dependent spouses, Why not provide EAD to all H4 spouses? It should based on qualification, age, skills and should be prerogative for H4. This will drastically help the US economy by filing unoccupied skilled jobs, establish new businesses to drive the US economy, also H4 can be entrepreneurs and provide jobs to the not so skilled workers in all sectors. Do you want to see a country where America's homeless?: The rise of Tent City, USA http://money.cnn.com/2014/05/16/pf/tent-city... via @CNNMoney

3) Since H1B is a dual intent visa to be an immigrant of this great country, why should there be 5 to 7 years waiting period for EB2 and 10 years for EB3 India and China to be eligible for green card? It is not ideal to waste all this time to be chosen be an immigrant, there should be a fast track system to process the visa for all categories or at least clear the backlog to be current when the new immigration policies are enforced. Country based visa approval is determent and this will cause many potential immigrant seekers to move to other counties that oblige to provide permanent resident-ship quicker.

H1b and H4 will not take American workers jobs based on your analysis in your report, rest assured by providing EAD you are directly helping the economy by providing high skilled workers to contribute and be successful in their endeavors.

I humbly request you to approve this rule and make the lives of many aspiring individuals to contribute and make this country the greatest nation in this world for human rights and also provide privileges for all non-immigrants aspiring to be Immigrants to call this rule "Path Breaking American Dream".

Yours Sincerely,
Vijayalakshmi Nagendrarao
