Title Guest worker program
(from Freebase)
The Guest Worker Program is a program that has been proposed many times in the past, most recently by former U.S. President George W. Bush as a way to permit U.S. employers to sponsor non-U.S. citizens as laborers for approximately three years, to be deported afterwards if they have not yet obtained a green card. The United States previous ran a Mexican guest worker program in the period 1942–1964, known as the Bracero Program. An article in The New Republic criticized a guest worker program by equating the visiting workers to second-class citizens, who would never be able to gain citizenship and would have less residential rights than Americans.
