Trump Administration has been trying it's best to 'Make America Great Again' by imposing more restrictions on H-1B Visas. After increasing the Minimum Wage Limit and Introducing Strict Scrutiny, US President is now going to stun the spouses of H-1B visa holders.

Spouses of H-1B Visa Holders will be issued H-4 Visas. They have been obtaining work permit based on the order issued by Obama Administration in 2015. More than 1 lakh H-4 visa holders are getting benefited with this rule.

But now, Donald Trump is going end Work Permits for Spouses of H-1B Visa Holders. This decision could have a severe impact on at least around 70,000 H-4 visa holders. Majority of those who will become job less will be Indians if the new rule is implemented as 93 percent of those 71,287 H-4 visa holders who were granted employment authorization documents as of June 2017 are Indians.
