UPDATE: There are other petitions covering similar topics, with many more votes so far. I’ve added them to the end of this post…
If you live in the US, please take a look at this petition to allow H4 visa holders (spouses etc who are wholly dependent on other visa holders, like H1’s – which companies like Microsoft benefit from) to seek employment:
It’s on the new “We the People” page on the White House site… Pretty cool, although interesting to see legalizing marijuana and acknowledging an “extra terrestrial presence engaging the human race” are considered such major priorities
Other similar petitions:
- Allow Seriously Backlogged EB2/EB3 Beneficiaries with Their I-140 Approved to File I-485 and Apply for EAD & AP (although suggests it’s only an issue for certain countries of origin; in reality it’s anyone who’s on EB3, but certainly worse for “oversubscribed” countries).
- Legal Employment-based Immigration Petitioners Help U.S. Companies and Should NOT be Heavily Backlogged for Years
- Allow H-4 Visa member to work legally
