US lawmakers and representative of the American IT industry have objected work permits 'Devastating for Families'. They along with Facebook have opposed the Donald Trump administration's proposed plan to withdraw work permits to H-4 visa holders, who are spouses of H-1B visa holders. They are against Trump's decision to terminate the Obama-era regulation that granted work permits to H-4 visa holders, a majority of whom are Indian professionals, and are mostly women. During the Obama rule, the H-4 visa rule had granted work authorisation to a limited subset of spouses.
