Save Jobs USA is an ad hoc organization representing Southern California Edison workers who were laid off in 2015, and allegedly replaced by H-1B workers, primarily from India. Save Jobs claims in a motion filed September 11 in the DC District Court of Appeals that its 2015 plaint was initially heard in a lower court which decided against the plaintiffs but work authorization for certain H-4 visa holders whose spouses are on track for permanent residency, displaces U.S. workers. The lawsuit questions whether work authorization can be granted without a directive from US Congress. Congress has not authorized H-4 aliens to engage in employment, stated Save Jobs USA in the new filing. The Department of Homeland Security is the defendant in the case. Shortly after President Donald Trump took office, his administration signaled it was ready to do away with H-4 EAD, claiming President Barack Obama had over-reached when he issued an executive order in 2015 allowing H-4 visa holders – whose spouses are on green card track – to work in the U.S. Currently, an estimated 100,000 employment authorization documents have been issued, overwhelmingly to women from India.
