Relief for Indian techies, H-1B Visa extensions to continue

US not considering change in H1-B visa rules

US not considering change in H1-B visa rules

Currently, the authorities can extend the H1-B visas beyond the permissible two- or three-year terms even if the green card is pending, but if this so-called "self-deportation" measure is implemented then 500,000 to 750,000 Indian H-1B visa holders could be deported. "H-1B visa holders, many of whom become small business owners and job creators, drive innovation and help build and strengthen our economy", said Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, the Democratic Co-Chair of the bipartisan Congressional Caucus on India and Indian-Americans.

In a relief for Indian techies, The US Citizenship and Immigration Services on Tuesday said that the Trump administration is not considering any proposal that would force 7,50,000 H-1B visa holders Indians to deport the country.

Indian-Americans today welcomed the Trump Administration's decision of not blocking extensions to H-1B visas, saying the "devastating" move would have caused "unprecedented" brain drain and hurt American businesses.

"These are the people who have helped America grow and thrive as a nation of immigrants and we need to make sure our system continues to value those who are following our laws and doing the right thing", he added.

According to the National Foundation for American Policy, more than half of privately-held companies worth Dollars 1 billion or more in the U.S. had at least one immigrant founder, with many entering into America on an H-1B visa, including the CEOs of both and.

The USCIS "is not considering a regulatory change that would force H-1B visa holders to leave the United States by changing interpretation of section certain language in Section 104 C of the American Competitiveness in the 21st Century Act (AC21) statute that states that USCIS may grant the extensions", an official said. "Every process can be improved continuously for maximum output and current H-1B process can also be improved but eliminating it on a whole affects much larger audience", he said.

During his election campaign, President Trump promised to increase oversight of our H-1B and L-1 visa programmes to prevent its abuse. But the Trump administration can change through executive action only those aspects of the H-1B programme that were effected through executive actions.
