next hit job on non-immigrant visas in the US The H4 dependent visa is a prime candidate On the other side of the Christmas hols is a long pending decision on whether spouses of H1B workers are eligible for employment in the US or not The Obama government in its penultimate year passed a regulation (not a law) allowing work authorisation for people on H4 visas who by virtue of their spouses applying for a green card could apply for a work permit This was in 2015 and met with whoops of joy and relief across the Indian H4 community The long view: Beaten and bruised H1B survives 365 days on Planet Trump The H1B and H4 visa did not figure in official talks during the Trump-Modi meeting earlier this year/ AP The resistance came quickly with groups opposed to the fundamental concept underpinning the H1B visas challenging the enhanced permits for the H4 visa in court Save Jobs USA has been pushing the government to dial back the H4 work authorization and this is not a new demand A district court judge struck down Save Jobs USA’s case in September 2016 but the political climate had undergone deep shifts by then as we now know from hindsight Despite the court setback the same group filed an appeal in less than 3 days coinciding with the stunning rise of Trump in America’s political scene The decision in the ongoing Save Jobs USA versus Department of Homeland Security case holds the key to the immediate future of the H4 visa holders’ life and work in America The Trump administration has asked for time to review the Obama-era regulation through the lenses of the Buy American Hire American Executive Order which is also the first time the H1B visa figures in a Trump-led EO That’s shorthand for grim news to the limited context of the H4 “The case is on hold but the outlook is not promising given the fact that the administration is not supporting the H4 rule being promulgaed by the Obama administration is not a good sign at all” says ace immigration attorney Cyrus Mehta Link: Immigration attorney Cyrus Mehta on H1B H4 visas In case the decision goes against work permits for H4 visa holders then it’s back to the pre 2015 years for these folks Note that neither the H1B nor the H4 figured in the highest level talks between Teams Trump and Modi in June this year This was a clearly thought out tack by the Indian side and the America view on it is brusque and crystal clear – "Our position is well known It is under review so we have nothing more to say" Both Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ overall negative positions on foreign guest worker programs remain highly popular with Trump’s core vote bank – a group that erupts in wild cheers when the US President taps into the cultural fault lines split wide open by America’s swiftly changing social fabric Up until the summer of 2015 H4 visa holders could not legally hold paid employment in the United States The fag end of the Obama years changed all that and was met with wild celebrations among Indians in the US With Trump in office and the prospect of benign neglect to immigration red flags that marked the Obama presidency now gone H-4s already have a lot to be edgy about even if nothing eventually changes Although the H-4 is not applicable to all H1-B workers’ dependants it covers a lot of ground Work authorisation for H4 covers dependent spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants on two conditions – the more crucial one being that the H1-B visa holder is the principal beneficiary of an approved Form I-140 Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker which is an upgrade of the plain vanilla H1B under which an IT worker may have entered the US Chandigarh:Gujarat Lions batsman Aaron Finch feels that knuckle ball has become a powerful weapon for bowlers in the IPL but said once batsmen start getting used to it they too will start playing it better "It is a very good ball it’s something the fast bowlers have started to develop a lot" Finch said when asked about the knuckle ball "You see guys are coming with two three four different types of slower balls But I think once more players start following it then the batsmen will start playing it better" he told reporters here on the sidelines of an event organised by team owners — Intex Technologies Aaron Finch Sportzpics/IPL Dhawal Kulkarni who along with team bowler Basil Thampi and Manpreet Gony was also present at the

knuckle ball is the most powerful weapon in his armoury Gujarat Lions campaign this season has been in disarray and they are struggling at the second last position at the points table They play Kings XI Punjab on Sunday About losing a close game against Delhi Daredevils Finch said "T20 is a game that can change so much If you win your first match that’s a very close you tend to win any other close ones in future But when you start losing them it starts to become a mental game We’ve still played some good cricket but not just good enough" "There is still a lot to play for winning matches for the

matches after suffering a hamstring strain "He is in New Zealand he has gone home He has been a wonderful player for the franchise and we are going to miss him" Finch said Asked about McCullum tweeting that the compressed tournament and long travel can be gruelling Finch said he agreed to what the Kiwi said "It takes a big toll I think the fast bowlers in particular You play a match and then you are sitting in a bus or an aircraft" he said adding the packed schedule and frequent travel have its pitfalls Notably before McCullum’s hamstring strain Andrew Tye was ruled out for the remainder of IPL-10 with a dislocated shoulder Tye sustained the injury on April 29 when he dived to stop a boundary at deep square leg during their IPL match against Mumbai Indians "I think you have seen a lot of injuries throughout this IPL on the back of a lot of travel and a lot of game without much rest But that’s part of the game and something you can’t control" Finch said Meanwhile Thampi when asked how he prepares to keep up to the challenge in this format said "It’s challenging for bowlers to bowl in T20 cricket If I go for runs then I motivate myself and think next I am going to take his wicket" "This is my first season I am enjoying a lot I am honoured to be amongst top players and I am learning a lot Still I want to learn more to become a perfect bowler" he added Iraqi
