I am more than willing to let them work, assuming they apply for and receive a work visa of their own. Nobody should be able to come here and work just because they are married to someone who can come here and work. They should have to qualify individually with no preference given to spouses/family.

That to me is a perfectly valid option. Personally, I hate that it's a lottery. They should only be added if there is a valid need that is not being filled. And, only the best applicant gets the opportunity.

The H-4 rule lessened the burden on thousands of H1-B recipients and their families while they transition from non-immigrants to lawful permanent residents by allowing their families to earn dual incomes.

"I oppose the move to terminate work permits to H-4 visas. Women who are just as qualified, sometimes more qualified than their spouses but haven't been able to work,"," Jayapal said. With the future of thousands of Indian professional, mostly women, at stake, the Indian Embassy here is believed to have taken up the matter very strongly with the Trump Administration and US lawmakers.

Good, H-1B is not meant to get people in.

Spouses of H-1B workers in the US will no longer be able to seek employment or set up their own business, as per plans revealed to the US Senate by a senior administration official -- a move could affect thousands of Indians.
