Children of H-1B Visa Holders Hope for Legislation (Podcast)

April 27, 2021, 7:52 PM

The holders of H-1B visas, who work in tech, science, and other highly skilled occupations, can bring their children to the U.S. legally. However, as soon as those children turn 21, they lose their dependent status and risk deportation to a country they may have no recollection of ever having lived in.

On this episode of On The Merits, Bloomberg Law’s Genevieve Douglas talks about the difficult choices these so-called “legal Dreamers” have to make and the bill, which passed in the House, that could solve their problems.
