November general American elections are on their way to reform not only the American land but also the Indian citizens. This 15th August, India celebrated its 74th Independence Day. On this day, while Indians were rejoicing their years of freedom on one side, the Joe Biden campaign declared a revolutionary decision on the other hand.
Joe Biden who is the president of the Biden party is all set to win the hearts and votes of the Indian people residing within America. Joe Biden made his decision public on 15th August 2020. He claimed that if in the year end elections his administration wins with majority votes and support, then using this power he would bring in significant chances in the rules related to the H – 1B visa for Indians abiding by the American Law.
WHAT IS H-1B VISA?
H-1B is a type of visa that you need to possess if you want to work in the United States of America which have certain criteria.
This visa is registered under section 101 of the Immigration and Nationality Act. The H-1B visa gives permission to employers to hire workers in their institution for work purposes only. However, this permission is temporary and according to the rules of the visa, it is bound to usually three years. However, it can be extended up to maximum six years. After this period, the holder of the H- 1B visa has to reissue their H-1B visas.
WHAT IS JOE BIDEN CLAIMING?
US law also states that every year only a limited number of H – 1B visas for foreigners will be issued. This number is around 1,88,100 per year. It limits further when it comes to issuing H – 1B visas for Indians.
Joe Biden has decided to get rid of the U.S quota system with respect to Green Cards on winning the American elections. This policy has a unique and transforming nature in these times.
Biden decision claims to bring an increase in the number of H – 1B visas for Indians as well as work related immigration for them. It also has planned to banish the Muslim ban put forth by the Trump government. The H – 1B visa reformation has the intention of modernizing age-old systems of immigration policies.
US law states that the Green card issuing needs to be done on the exact basis of the employment only. The Bidden law intends to extend and provide relaxation in this law.
Indians are a popular and high immigrant community in America. Indians have made their mark in most of the work sectors in America. It is estimated that the number of Indian – American residing in the United States are huge. This decision made by the Biden campaign is surely going to win the hearts of these masses.
HOW WILL THE BIDEN DECISION HELP INDIANS?
After the Trump government has come in power, Indian – Americans have been facing huge employment related issues. The trump government had imposed several restrictions on the visa issued by Indians to work in America as well as the Indians already residing in America.
Joe Biden believes that skilled Indian professionals create wonder in the IT industry of the United states and their contribution to the American land is highly beneficial for the country itself. Moreover, this provision will also provide great employment opportunities for several Indian workers and skilled professionals.
In addition, this policy will modernize the immigration system in America as well as in India. The policy will enhance work relationships between the two nations.
The grant for relaxation in H – 1B visa for Indians will also tur out to be beneficial for Indians with respect to immigration. The trump rule had created a havoc in the system by imposing restrictions on visa grants for Indian immigrants for work. This had disrupted the whole employment traditions in multiple companies and many skilled officials has lost their jobs because of lack of management of the Trump decision.
India has been the community with the largest H – 1B visa recipients and this will help the relations between the two nations to get strengthened. With an increase in this facility these relations are likely to grow more in future.
The decision will also significantly improve the trade relations between India and the United States. Biden administration claims that Indian employment and work for the American industry is one of the ‘high priorities’ for their nation.
Joe Biden also proposes the transformation as a well planned strategy to restrict the influence and growth of China world-wide. He claims that this policy will include India in the process to work hand in hand and achieve this global goal.
Former Vice President Joe Biden intends to strengthen the Indian – American partnership for a better future.
On one side, we see the Trump government trying to uplift the American citizens by stopping over the facilities of the Indian minority in America. On the other side, there stands the Joe Biden administration, believing in uplifting the Indian immigrants in America and giving them visa related facilities.
Both parties being considered for the presidential American elections on the 3rd of November 2020, have almost opposite ideologies. Indians believe in voting for a leader with rational laws and considerate system reformers. The Indian masses believe that the Biden government will bring in a vision for both the nations and create progressive reforms. This decision of the Biden campaign has already done wonders in the minds of the Indian – Americans. Moreover, the decision resulting in the flourishing of the American IT sector will be an add on the boon for the Americans too! The American elections are near, and fingers are crossed globally. It will be exciting to see which rule deserves the power and gets to make history for not just one nation, but two progressive friendly nations! Will, there be a revolution in the immigration system, or will the Trump law continue the legacy?
