Dear Editor:
This is in response to Rob Sanchez's article entitled "Feminist Argument For H-4B Work Visas" (1/05/04 ID). I have always found it illogical that we require company sponsorship for an H1-B and tie the worker's continued presence to that sponsorship, but then have some who suggest that the spouse (H-4 holder) be able to work freely, without having to get such, or any, sponsorship. The present system, where the spouse is free to obtain his/her own sponsorship and visa is certainly the reasonable course.
