Github Sponsors and Visas

Hi there,

I started looking at the GitHub sponsors project lately and a question came to mind. Is GitHub able / willing to sponsor people for Visas? For example, if you are a person working in the USA but you are not a citizen or a permanent resident or an asylum seeker, you cannot stay in the USA unless you have a work visa.

Would GitHub be able to work with people for work visas, or do they simply not touch that? I noticed they care about taxation, which is of course appropriate, and I was wondering whether there was any opportunity for immigration support. After all, if you make as much money as some of the sponsored projects do, you can pretty much live wherever you want.
