DHS Announces Proposals for Highly Skilled Immigrants
On Tuesday, May 6th, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the publication of two new proposals that would extend employment authorization to spouses of certain H-1B workers, and remove some obstacles to remaining in the U.S. that highly-skilled workers frequently face. These proposals come in light of the Administration’s on-going efforts to attract and retain highly skilled immigrants, new businesses, and new investments in order to ensure that the U.S. has the most skilled workforce in the world.
Both Notices of Proposed Rulemaking will soon be published in the Federal Registrar. The DHS meanwhile encourages the public to comment on the proposed rules through www.regulations.gov before the final rules are published and made effective.
