The president of the united states, Donald Trump has been shocking the world by imposing stern rules on immigrants. Trump has earned himself an anti-immigrant tag for the same.

The latest news is that the US government is looking to cancel the work permits for the spouses of H1-B visa holders. In 2015, Obama rule made it clear that immigrants could work in the country irrespective of their residence status. Trump’s new decision will overwrite the pre-existing rule.

An estimate revealed that there are over 70,000 H4 visa holders are currently working with these permits. That will not be the case anymore as the new rules will be brought into effect very soon.
