The Trump administration is likely to put an end to Obama-era rule under which spouses of H-1B visas were given work permits. Six Democratic lawmakers namely Anna Eshoo, Zoe Lofgren, Ro Khanna, Mark DeSaulnier, Barbara Lee and Jerry McNerney in a letter to the administration of Donald Trump have urged to retain Obama-era rule allowing spouses of H-1B visa holders to work legally in the US. The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ foreign workers so that they can contribute to their households and to the American economy.
