Trump to deny visas to spouces of certain immigrantsU.S. Customs and Immigration Services completed a proposal to end work visas for spouses of temporary specialized foreign workers, Bloomberg Law reported Thursday.

The reported proposal would eliminate H-4 work permits for spouses of people holding H-1B visas and waiting for green cards to become available.

About 90,000 people, many of them Indian women, hold H-4 permits.

The proposal was reportedly sent to the White House Office of Management and Budget on Wednesday.

USCIS declined to comment on the proposal.

“USCIS continues reviewing all employment-based visa programs," USCIS spokesperson Jessica Collins said in a statement. "No decision about the regulation concerning the employment eligibility of certain H-4 spouses is final until the rulemaking process is complete.”
