Ron, I think you are wrong on this one. H4 EAD didn't need executive order. Obama wanted to include it in his Nov 2014 executive action speech and thats why it was delayed. I think Obama and white house are actively or passively delaying it again. He will do a few more ribbon cutting ceremony or at least one more before this gets finalized. Legislative changes for immigration are dead until after 2016 election and this is the only reform he can bring. So he has to do some more ribbon cutting to etch this in people brain as his legacy.
