H4 EAD going to be discontinued?

Obama passed executive order in January 2015 to allow spouses of H1B visa workers with approved I140 to apply for EAD and work. Trump administration is likely going to reverse the decision. My family will be impacted financially by that. And more than that, it’s a blow to my spouse’s career which was just getting started. Anyone in the same boat?

    There's lot of news going on around that. Not sure which one is true but if push comes to shove, our plan is to sell everything and move back home. Does not make sense for one person to sacrifice their whole career, passion & life because of stupid rules.

    Seriously, what's the point of money and some luxury if there's no freedom to follow your heart!

    • Wow! Pure hatred. My wife is doing her masters in Bay area, much smarter than me and is a h4 ead beneficiary. I just wish people like you who draw broadstrokes and are sexist get their ego kicked in the nuts by people like my wife at work 😀.

      Seriously, did you do your masters here?

    • Just like potus says we need to stop things and figure what’s going on...

      Gulti people need to be thrown out of Bay Area ASAP

    • I disagree with you on every count , but even your hatred has no logic. What does h4 EAD have anything to do with your hatred? You do know they can be on h1/l1/GC/citizen too, I hope.

      My classmate at school days, who was the smartest, most disciplined and of highest work ethic was a Telugu girl. Once again, your broad strokes need to get shattered.

      I am so happy that I have uninstalled this shitty ass Uber app long back after watching the news of how it spies on its customers. After reading this butthole’s comments I am happy that I did it. Uber employees are the most racist towards Indians in blind. Just shows the company’s culture I guess.

    The problem with H4 EAD is that the recipeient could take the job of a cashier at Safeway. This needs to be fixed.

      Or start a business which can create multiple cashier like jobs.

    • Right.. the job which would otherwise be done by illegal mexicans or the dependents of non immigrant visa holders like L1. While the same job being done by “GC in waiting” folks seem so wrong.

    If H4EAD gets revoked, Bay Area liberal industry captains will protest at airports, join lawsuits, and tweet a storm. I don't think the administration would want more of that.

      Not really. Only 90k+ eads were giving since inception (numbers are from earlier this year. May have increased by 20-25k). Small unrepresented minority compared to DACA

      @appdynamics: I hope that was sarcasm.

      To be clear, appdynamics was sarcastic. Don't expect Liberals to do anything for your present state. According to them, since you are legal, you deserve no heart bleed. May be learn to become illegal and you will gain some of their love.

    Not just brietbat, some credible people like Murthy and Emily from immigrationgirl also hinted that there was some insider info that a new rule was being drafted. On Nov 17th court rejected the government's request for extension of abeyance on the DHS vs save jobs case. The earlier abeyance ends on 12/31. Current standing of save jobs is weak. Possibilities of court ruling in favor of ead are high. So, the administration may bring a new rule reversing it by then. They may introduce the new rule in rulebook by December. 60 day commenting process follows. All in all, may take by end of February to remove h4 EAD if the rumors are true.

      When you have immigration attorney site (whose ft job is dependant on your backlog) as a credible source, I can't but laugh and cry at the same time.

      What's rulebook and what's its relevance in terms of revoking H4 EAD
      Nov 26, 2017

      @lolz, keep laughing and crying. @BitPal, h4 EAD, opt extension were all done by the comment and rule instrument where a rule is open for commenting to public and then goes to federal register. So general consensus is, they will have to follow the same process to revoke. (Or govt can contest that this rule making process itself was invalid but they are unlikely to as they would not be able to use the process for their future rules if they do so). But hey, you never know what this adminstration will do.

    H4 EAD is going to be revoked. It's all over the news. Plus it suits MAGA narrative.

    • Revoking H1Bs also suit MAGA narrative.. so what?
      Nov 25, 2017

      I don't think H1B and H4 EAD went through same legislative process? Did they? Plus DT is doing all he can to make life hell for H1b through RFEs. Heard of those in recent days?

    If the source is breitbart let's wait for some official confirmation.

      It's like train wreck. We only agree lives are lost and derailing when you really find train derailing. We usually attack the person who points out problem in the track that is guaranteed to cause derailing.

  • And it was not an executive order.. it went through rule making process.. this seems like a troll.. someone really getting impacted would know at least this much.

    Unemployment rate is the least in last 17 years. I highly doubt if the Trump government can prove that H4 EAD is affecting American jobs.
