Passport and green card

A rule blocking employment for spouses of H-1B visa workers on their way to green cards might debut this spring, a Colorado media outlet is reporting.

The U.S. Department of Justice hopes to have the rule published by spring of 2020, per a memo to a federal appeals court Monday, the Denver Post reports.

The ban could impact around 100,000 people, most of whom are females from India.

The Trump Administration has decreased H-1B approvals after criticism that businesses abuse the option by outsourcing and driving down U.S. wages, the Post reports. The annual cap is currently 85,000.
