Trump Admin To Stop Giving Permits To Spouses Of High-Skilled Immigrants

The Trump administration is putting into effect its plan to stop giving work permits to spouses of high-skilled visa holders, likely to be a tremendous blow to the tech industry.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, this would affect about 100,000 workers, most of whom live in California.

The Obama administration originally set up the H-4 permit program to help attract high-skilled workers from places like India, and to help their families stay in America with them while waiting to get their green cards.

Repealing the program will split apart families already settled in the U.S. and likely deter highly educated immigrants from coming and doing critical work in the tech industry.

1. So why will highly skilled workers/immigrants want to come w/o their families?

You work for your family.
Foolish choice this

2. I think you're missing that the point here

Is to discourage immigration, even legal immigration. Also to punish California, cause Trump knows we hate him.

3. They don't want highly educated immigrants period

These immigrants are a threat to their base, culturally and demographically

The current republican party celebrates ignorance, insularity, and low paying servile employment

9. The ironic thing about all this...

...How did Melania's parents get their residency? As a matter of fact, how in the hell did Melania qualify for an EB-1?

12. Similar to the Chinese Exclusion Act effect on Chinese women... S. Miller: FUCK YOU!!!

From AAPF:

The Chinese Exclusion Act has distinctly harsh consequences for Chinese women because of the way marriage was regulated by Congress through immigration law. In her article Divesting Citizenship: On Asian American History and the Loss of Citizenship through Marriage Professor Leti Volpp describes the process through which women who were American citizens by birth lost citizenship due to the interaction of the Chinese Exclusion Act and a law passed in 1907 by Congress which states that any American woman who marries a foreigner shall take the nationality of her husband. While this law caused women of all races to lose their citizenship through marriage, it had a particularly devastating effect on Chinese women who were, unlike similarly situated white women, prevented from naturalizing because they were rendered ineligible for citizenship as a function of their race. By way of example, Professor Volpp includes the story of Ng Fung Sing, an American woman born in Washington State, who lost her citizenship as a result of her marriage to a Chinese man. After her marriage, Ng Fung Sing moved to China to live with her husband. Following his death two years later, Ng Fung Sing attempted to return to the United States and was prevented from doing so on the basis that she was no longer a citizen and was furthermore inadmissible as a result of her race. Volpp goes on to note that stories like those of Ng Fung Sing are generally left out of academic discussion of the Chinese Exclusion Act, which generally focuses on the effect of the Act on Chinese men.
