Washington, DC – We Belong Together applauds the issuance of regulations today authorizing employment for certain spouses of H1B visa holders. We Belong Together has long advocated for such measures as part of our efforts to seek executive action and legislative solutions that honor the needs and contributions of immigrant women. Three-quarters of dependent visa holders in employment categories are women, who do not have the opportunity to work and contribute their skills to the U.S. economy.
