As you know H4 Visa Holders with EAD can work, if they fall under certain categories. Since the H4 EAD rule has passed there have been resistance from certain groups like SAVE Jobs USA, which is an organization that consists of IT workers and who claim that they have lost jobs due to H1B holders. Anyways, they have filed a lawsuit and it was dismissed by DC circuit court. Later, after Trump Administration took over earlier this year, they have asked for extensions and motions. This has been going on for few months now.
The most recent update was in September when DHS basically asked to hold the current H4 EAD case in abeyance or suspensions state. Trump administration have been asking for all these extensions just to delay the process and execute some of their buy American and hire American executive order. They have got extension for this motion until December 31st.
