The DHS announcement about Thursday’s State of Homeland Security speech was short and to the point:
We will be using #StateofDHS for comments on social media.
If you search how people on Twitter are using the hashtag now (https://twitter.com/search?q=%23DHSin2015&src=typd), you’ll see it’s already active with people lobbying for changes in the rules governing Employment Authorization Cards:
“Fix legal families first as we pay taxes n live by rules no matter what. Pass #H4EAD #DHSin2015 @USCIS @DHSgov. H1B spouses lives on hold.”
The person who told me about this wrote:
“Most tweets using the hashtag are to demand work authorization for spouses of h1B via holders. I am curious what organization saw the hastag this early and decided to use it. Kudos to them!”
