"We are delighted that Indian IT workers will get all their benefits as the U.S. decided not to change any rules in H-1B visa norms". When the reports first became pubic, there was a stir among the Indian's and other people who have been working overseas and who are not the permanent citizens of the state. They were previously on the staff of Senators Jeff Sessions and Charles Grassley respectively, both lawmakers having made fervent legislative efforts to squish H-1B visas.
The change would force all Indians, not holding green card or have applied for a green card, to leave the US.
US PresidentDonald Trump since coming into office has been encouraging a "Buy American, Hire American" tightening the noose on H-1B visas that are issued to foreign workers for a period of 3-6 years, and are sometimes converted into permanent residency permits.
The proposal, in the form of an internal memo that had gone around the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which oversees USCIS, had set out to end the provision of granting extensions to H-1B visa holders whose applications for permanent residency (Green Card) had been accepted.
The clarification by USCIS will come as a huge relief for hundreds of thousands of H-1B visa holders, and for those visa holders who are now in an advanced stage of their Green Card petitions.

If the Trump administration does not extend their visas, senior and high-quality talent will take a beating and that would detrimental to USA companies, he says. This is a GREAT development. The USCIS was never considering such a policy change, Withington said, and that "any suggestion that USCIS changed its position because of pressure is absolutely false". An estimated 70 per cent of these visas go to Indians - hired mostly by IT companies.
