A lawsuit has been filed by a group of 174 Indian Nationals including 7 minors against the recent presidential proclamation on H-1B that would prevent them from entering the United States or a visa would not be issued to them.
The lawsuit was filed in the US District Court on Tuesday. “The proclamation 10052’s H-1B/H-4 visa ban hurts the United States’ economy, separates families and defies the Congress. While the two former points render it unseemly, the latter point renders it unlawful,” said Wasden Banias, a lawyer who is representing the 174 Indian nationals.
The lawsuit seeks an order declaring the presidential proclamation restriction on issuing new H-1B or H4 visas or admitting new H-1B or H-4 visa holders as unlawful. It also urges the court to compel the Department of State to issue decisions on pending requests for H-1B and H-4 visas.
