I strongly support this. H4 Kids are under tremendous stress on account of losing out on opportunities. The law doesn't permit them internship even if they forego compensation. They can do internships only in social service voluntary organizations but not in the fields of their education.

These kids are in the same journey as other kids. It is not for the money but for the ability to add practical work experience to a chosen profession. They are legally here and have done well in studies. Many of them are here from a few months after their birth and dont know how it is to live in another country. Providing them EAD will ensure they can continue to pursue their studies and contribute to the economy.

Yes these kids need EAD, to get eligibility to get funds released as scholarships and get eligibility for getting into their interest of study, else these kids completed their elementary, middle High school here and need to go another country to study their interest like, Medicine and related fields.

This is a very valid ask. Please give EAD to H4 kids that are aging out and freeze their age, as the delay is happening due to flaws in the process

Please do something for the aging out H4 Kids. They need no to go through the same hurdle which currently the parents are facing if they don't get EAD due to the long wait times in EB Categories.

I request to grant EAD for kids of legal immigrants and consider them as In-state for college education, as the kids are in US for most of their childhood years and educated in USA from elementary / Middle to High school. Not to forget that the legal parents paid taxes to the government living in a backlogged queue to be a permanent resident for more than a decade. This will help the kids of legal immigrant community to contribute to the economy after the education.

H4 EAD for Kids will greatly help for kids who are living in USA for the past 10+ years and are waiting in the green card waiting line. My Son is 18+ .He is a in HS and got accepted in 3 colleges .He scored a GPA of 3.75 and 2260 in SAT . But he is in a very miserable situation .He received letters from colleges saying he is eligible for full tuition waivers , if he had her GC . Its very hard to convince the kids from being dippressed . He always asks me the same question , how long am I going to be like this ? As he hears that all her friends are going to good colleges even with lesser scores and he has to look for cheaper college , he keeps getting more and more dippressed. The worst part , which I have not disclosed to er is about the age out . I am not sure , if he can absorb that .

Having a son who is going to face this exact situation in a year, I'm wholeheartedly adding my name to this petition. We've been here for over ten years, paying into the federal, state, social security and medicare systems as any legal resident should. The current system of aging out children of folks waiting for their priority dates to become current would definitely fall under cruel and unusual punishment, for a crime these kids did not commit. Being ineligible for any sort of federal or state-level tuition aid does hurt the bottom line of many families, even high earners. Families on H1B that are waiting for priority dates to become current have contributed to American society, and it is high time that the government recognizes our contributions and accepts us, just like our local communities do.

I've been in the US for close to 20 years as a dependent. I am now in college on an h4. I'm a certified EMT in my state but not able to get ead and take advantage of jobs on campus or in my town. This is really frustrating for me as well as the many others in similar situations. Something must be done.

Please allow the intern option to H4 dependent children. Internship helps them to learn US work culture.
