“Tech Workers:
 
Snuck into the guidance on the Employment-Based Green Card category in the Oct. 2020 Visa Bulletin from the Department of State was a chart which indicated any H-1B national from India who had been sponsored for an EB-3 Green Card before January 1, 2015, would now be able to file for an EAD work permit (Advanced Parole).
 
In the September 2020 Visa Bulletin, that date was February 1, 2010. That is a five-year jump!!!!

That means there’s a possibility of more than a 100,000 Indians getting EAD cards along with their spouses and children!

The immigration lawyers and the H-1B Indian nationals are celebrating! This is essentially opening up the floodgates that will invite more eager people to come on H-1Bs and try their luck at getting EADs!

Suggested wording to USCIS is below, but revise as you see fit with your own verbiage:

In this deep economic recession with millions of Americans unemployed and looking for good paying jobs, why is the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services preparing to award Employment Work Authorization Documents (EAD) to hundreds of thousands of H-1B visa workers from India?
 
Why is USCIS choosing to follow the direction of the State Department’s Visa Bulletin that was published last week to issue these EAD permits to foreign workers? This directive becomes effective October 1!
 
President Trump, based on his past executive orders, promised to protect American workers from foreign visa workers So why is the State Department choosing to undermine the President’s order?

As an American worker, I am deeply disappointed with this latest development and encourage you to do the right thing by not proceeding.

Thank you!
