Part I of this Note will briefly examine the history of United States immigration policy, highlighting major legislation, to illustrate the increasingly complex and restrictive approach adopted by the United States toward aliens. Part II will focus on the predecessors of the proposed guest worker program, the "Bracero" program and, to a lesser extent, the "H-2" program. Part III will present a critical review of the President's guest worker program and its legislative counterparts in greater detail underscoring their similarities and differences. Finally, Part IV will posit some conclusions concerning the President's program and offer suggestions for improvement.
