Does the recent comprehensive immigration reform has a clause

This answer was rated:

Does the recent comprehensive immigration reform has a clause for EAD provision

for H4 persons whose spouses have been in USA for only 2 years ?
Hello,my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
The law provides spouses of H-1B workers with work authorization if the sending country of the worker provides reciprocal treatment to spouses of U.S. workers.
There is no 2 year requirement in the Sennate bill.

Can you please share the link for it ? Does India fall in that category ?


It is my understanding India will not qualify they do not have reciprocity with US. The link is from AILA which is password XXXXX You cannot open it. You can google this.
However, we are far from a sure thing on anything yet. The House gets started on this next week and they are very much against much of the Senate Bill so we really have no idea what we are going to end up with. It is the House that opposes the reform. It is weeks before we will know what direction we are headed and if reconciliation is going to be possible.
