  • employment authorization

    im 20 yrs old entering my third yr of college. ive been in the country for about 13 yrs now. i have an ssi card but it says "Not Valid For Employment", and i am also out of status and have been for some time. Although i did come in legally on an H-1B visa, and at one time had an Employment Authorization Card. I recently applied for a job and was hired on the spot but when they checked my info, they notified me that i am not eligible to work. They told me that they want help me sort what ever needs to be sorted in order to get me in. My question is, is there anything that they can do in order to make me eligible for employment?

      Hi Eddie and welcome,

      How long have you been out of status? I don't think the employer can help you at this point. I would say marriage to a USC may be the only solution to adjusting your status. But, since you are only 20, doesn't sound like a very feasible option). Good luck and maybe some other members will offer different advice.

        If you are 20 now, looks like you came here with your parents as an H4 dependent. Did your parents get their green cards or become citizens?

            Plenty of both (brains and patriotism). This guy was obviously brought by his parents at the age of 7 or so. Why blame him??? What are these kids supposed to do to get any relief from the illegal acts of their parents? Don't blame them. They are the ones who need some type of reform in this country because they didn't intentionally do anything wrong.

                      Have your parents also fallen out of status or is a green card application pending for them? Are they 245i-which means did someone sponsor either of your parents before April 30, 2001 for a green card? That would make you 245i as well. What state do you live in?

                          Get as much information from your parents about the dates pertaining to their green card application. If anything was filed on behalf of your parents before April 30, 2001, that may make you eligible for 245i protection- meaning you can get your green card through your employer even though you're out of status.

                              Hello Eddie


                              You came here legally as a dependent of a Hib temporary work agreement.
                              You are H4 and are not authorized to work in usa, just in case you are not aware of that. Also, your parents and accompanying family were supposed to return home after completion of the H1b program as agreed. Instead, they are here illegal and have made you illegal in the process.

                              How did you get the "employment authorization, thru your studies? some one there was not on the ball and erroneously issued that EA.

                              Good 4 the employer for checking your eligibility and at the same time a thump on the head if they are trying to give you a job that should be going to a legal usa worker.


                              @ Brit and proud

                              What reform is needed for this situation?? It was agreed when the parents came here. In most cases, the parents renig on the agreement. No it is not the children's fault, but it is not the usa problem either. Exactly how is that the usa is expected to reward a situation like this??????? Do we reward children whose parents have been put in jail for criminal acts etc? No we do not..... so why just why is there a reform needed for these kids who are foreign citizens
