My three children are all under H4 visa. I have sent my eldest son back home because he aged out. Now another son is on the same situation, as he is turning 21 next year. I hope this petition will be given due consideration for parents like us, facing the difficulty and emotional distress of sending back the children home because of the immigration law on H4 dependents. It is hearbreaking to send home the children you have raised since birth not knowing if they will get the same care that only parents can give to their children. These children have spent their most precious time and studied in the US. They have come to love life in America and have dedicated themselves to work in the US as part of their dreams. I hope this will be heard by the lawmakers who are likewise parents and understands how it is to be separated from their children. My prayers for this petition.

I strongly support this rule. When illegal immigrants child get all the benefits, the legal immigrants also should get it. I am not sure how it is not applicable to us.

I support this petition. I am staying here in USA for last 9 years and the GC is not visible at this moment. My son is now in Junior year and I do not know how do I provide education to him. Please pay attention to the legal tax paying H1B Visa holder so that their American dream are not lost due to politics around illegal immigrants.

I support this petition and request to allow EAD for dependent children on H4 visa. With single earning in the USA, it is very difficult to give excellent education to kids due to lack federal loans. These kids are brought up in the USA. They know this country more than the country they are born. Please help them. They are the kids of the USA.

The only path for the H4 kids that are aging out is to convert their visa status to F1, which is nothing different from a person who is stepping into US for the first time. But my kid has been here since she was 9 year old. She is now 20 with very good grades and GPA in college. Please allow these kids to apply for EAD.

I think H4 dependents deserve Atleast the benefits which undocumented are getting.Atleast those who completed there all education here.Considering them as international student is not fair at all and not giving them fair chance to participate in lot of programs like internship.

Given the 10 plus years of wait time for Indians waiting for their green card, would be helpful for their kids to provide EAD once they have an approved I-140, this will allow the kids who have studied here to participate in internship and realize their full potential and contribute to the US economy. This should definitely be given to students who have completed their elementary, middle and high school here.

Currently my child is a senior in high school. Excelled in the schools flagship STEM program. Has been in the US school system since Pre K. We are in a dilemma now, as graduation will soon be approaching in a few months time. My child is not eligible for most scholarships, especially FAFSA. It is very discouraging. First of all we have been living in hope for the past 15 years that our Green Card will come soon and we can live the American dream. We have paid our taxes and more as we are not eligible for a homestead discount on our property taxes like every homeowner does in Florida. My child has high aspirations of becoming a doctor and wants to make the world a better place. How can this be achieved with not being allowed to work legally and gaining the much needed work experience and income to support student loans. Refugees come to America and are given everything including free education, housing, medical and the list goes on. Benefits that they could never have got in their native countries even during peaceful times. Children of illegal immigrants have opportunities for scholarships as they are born here and have valid SS. We who abide by the rules and the laws of the land, work hard are not able to provide a better education for our children as we ourselves are stagnant in the same job We have sleepless nights thinking about how we can provide for our child's education. Seen our child's tears of helplessness. I support this petition and hope that someone will read, empathize and help change the situation of H4 VISA holders for the better.
