US: Trump administration misses deadline on H4 visa notification

The Trump administration has failed to meet its deadline for the second time this year to issue a notification with regard to its decision on terminating work authorisation of H4 visa users, who are spouses of H-1B visa holders.  

The Department of Homeland Security had informed a US court in March that it was working to issue a Notice of Proposed Rule Making in June this year. 

At the end of the month of June, the DHS did not give any explanation for not issuing the NPRM, which would have formally kicked off the process to terminate the Obama-era decision to provide work authorisation to spouses of H-1B visa holders.

A DHS official said that multiple times this year, as late as early June, the DHS had insisted that there was no change in its plans to rescind the Obama-era rule of providing authorization to certain categories of H-4 visas holders. Indian women spouses of H-1B visa holders have been beneficiaries of this provision which the Trump administration now wants to reverse. 

The DHS had also missed a similar deadline in February when it told a federal court, which was hearing a litigation in this regard, that it anticipated submitting to the Office of Management and Budget for review and clearance the proposed rule in time for publication in June 2018.
