Spouses of H-IB US visa holders to get more opportunities

US ImmigrationA new opportunity for those who are married to H-IB visa holders is to become available soon.  President Obama and his White House administration have come up with a new process that will allow the spouses of visa holders to be able to work in the United States.

While critics of Obama accuse his administration of being harsher than any in recent memory on the issue of deporting immigrants, there is little doubt that this latest policy will help in the attempt to develop new and improved immigration laws.  The policy will help to attract more workers from overseas and might even herald a new beginning for the economy in the United States.

Commerce secretary Penny Pritzker and Alejandro Mayorkas, the deputy secretary of Homeland Security ‒ two of the top officials in the Obama administration ‒ are to oversee the implementation of these new US visa work policies in order to meet specific immigration goals.  Mayorkas says that this is a great start but that there is nonetheless still a great deal of work left to do.

“These steps will help the US maintain competitiveness with other countries in our efforts to attract the best and the brightest high-skilled workers from around the world to support companies here at home,” Mayorkas claims.  “Businesses continue to need these high-skilled workers, and these rules ensure we do not cede the upper hand to other countries competing for the same talent.”
