H4- EAD Updates - Reps. Eshoo and Lofgren reintroduce H4 EAD work authorization protection bill in House
What's the update on H4 EAD?
The reintroduction of this bill by California Reps. Eshoo and Lofgren may be a bit of a relief for H4 EAD holders fearing the H4 EAD revocation by the Administration. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is reviewing the rule for over 90 days, and the government has not made any decision as of May 30, 2019.
This week, the Trump Administration announced plans to overturn current DHS regulations that allow H4 EAD spouses of H-1B visa holders. Two influential lawmakers from California have introduced an act in the United States House of Representatives to protect authorization of H-4 visa workers, a visa issued to immediate family members of H-1B visa holders. This development comes after the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) said that it would publish the long-promised law that would prevent work authorization to spouses on H-4 visas in the month of May 2019.
What to expect next?
Although, a bill is introduced the Administration will continue to review every comment, opposition, and bills from the public and the law makers. We need to wait and watch the latest developments.
