Re: “Thousands of legal, highly skilled immigrants, mostly women, could lose the right to work

The problem is with arbitrary rules and policies. People make life changing decisions based on their ability to earn and invest more. The problem is that people are not seen as people, who have a limited lifetime and need to make decisions for their families in that time. By all means close the gates for H1b workers, but allowing them in by calling them guests, giving them an option to file for permanent residency, and then treating them and their families badly by keeping them locked in limbo for decades is not right. Have a 7% country cap on H1b just like there is one for green cards, or have the cap for permanent residency applications. USCIS has been approving permanent residency petitions with no indication of how long it will take for them to actually provide the green card. People are dying waiting in line, kids are losing their parents and spouses their partners. These are people who are following the law, doing everything right, and yet being punished. No one knows how long it takes for green cards to be processed because there is no transparency. People only understand the situation after they have lived here for at least a decade, by which time they would have set some roots and made changes in their life, essentially trapping them.
