ABSTRACT
This article presents an overview of the issue of immigration. The United States is in a largely unique position in the global marketplace for the purposes of its immigration policies: Its expansive economic and geographic boundaries allow for and even encourage a very high rate of immigration. Unskilled immigrant workers, particularly guest workers, have long been considered an essentially temporary labor pool. The long-term presence of this apparently temporary labor pool, however, has resulted in a visa-distribution program that strongly favors family preference rather than skill preference. Although considerable effort has been made to achieve comprehensive immigration reform in recent decades, perhaps the most notable identifiable trend is that little has changed since around 1965.
