"A group of tech workers who claim to have been replaced by employees on H-1B visas asked a D.C. federal court Monday to grant them judgment in their suit challenging a new rule allowing certain H-4 visa holders to work, saying the rule exceeded the power of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security."
My 2 Cents on the matter:
This is quite ridiculous. The injunction had no merits and now they are pushing for a judgment on what? I would like to know how the court is going to act in this. Just because few H1B companies might not be compliant does not make the H1B program totally useless and as such the two issues are not related. I have personally seen thousands of H4 visa suffer, and it is inhuman to keep playing with people's lives like that. As much as I feel bad for the group (Save Jobs USA) whose members were terminated by Southern California Edison, the H4 should not be punished just because they were terminated. The H4 visa holders had nothing to do it. It is like punishing Jane for the mistakes of Paul! Are we going to allow such things in the "land of the free"??? Read some of the comments on https://www.change.org/p/give-more-rights-to-h4-visa-holders about the sufferings of those who were on the H4 visa.
