With Donald Trump administration increasingly looking inward in with
its America First policy outlook, over 60,000 Indians may soon be
rendered jobless in the US. This follows from a letter from the US
Citizenship and Immigration Services deciding to terminate work permits
granted to H-4 visa holders. The H-4 visa is granted to the spouses of
professionals working in the US on H-1B visa.
