ABSTRACT
The article presents an overview of the "Guest Worker program," which is related to current policies pertaining to the emigration and immigration law in the United States. The term "guest worker" has typically been applied to foreign temporary low-skilled laborers, often in agriculture. The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, as originally enacted, authorized a temporary foreign worker program known as the H-2 program. The United States currently has two main programs for importing temporary low-skilled workers. Agricultural workers enter through the H-2A program and other temporary workers enter through the H-2B program.
