Guest Workers

June 2005
Congressional Digest;Jun2005, Vol. 84 Issue 6, p161
The article presents experts' view on devising a new immigration policy in the United States. Although the U.S. was founded and has been sustained by immigrants, its national policies in this area have wavered between generosity and exclusion--usually depending on the state of the U.S. economy. As more and more Mexican and other migrants cross the border seeking U.S. jobs, calls have increased for a guest worker program to make their employment in this country legal and manageable. Opponents counter that granting legal status to temporary foreign workers will create incentives for future immigrants to flout U.S. borders.
