The BIA relied on 214(e)(6) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 8 U.S.C. §1184(e)(6) , that provides that the Attorney General shall authorize spouse of an E-2 visa recipient to engage in employment and provide the spouse with an “employment authorized” or other such work permit. Interestingly, however, the regulation entitled, “Aliens who must apply for employment authorization” does not state that the spouse of a treaty investor under E-2 must do the same.
