Notes

Abstract: As border and immigration policy is a contentious political and social issue, it is important to consider a wide range of solutions. Actual people are being affected by these policies, but there has yet to be a viable guest worker program presented by policy makers. This paper addresses the possibility for a successful guest worker program by combining evidence gathered through interviews with former migrant workers with an analysis of immigration law in the United States since 1965, an analysis of guest worker programs in Europe and Canada, and an analysis of the effects of the political and economic situation between the United States and Mexico. The research indicates that successful implementation would require the allowance of remittances, an extensive public education program, and bilateral agreements between the United States and Mexico. Although the author's research addresses the issue of a program specifically linked to Mexico, the results provide the framework for comprehensive immigration reform in the United States.
