The issue of illegal aliens has received considerable attention in recent years. Concern over the problem of illegal aliens has promulgated an array of efforts by the federal government to examine and revise immigration statutes and practices. Indeed, much debate has arisen over the possibility of instituting a large scale temporary foreign worker program in the United States. The book by professors Miller and Martin addresses some of the basic problems that must be taken into consideration in administering such a foreign-worker program. In this study, the basic means of generating relevant insights is to draw from the Western European experience with large-scale foreign–worker programs. The reasoning behind this approach is that if the United States were indeed to embark on a large-scale temporary foreign-worker program, it would be in effect be comparable with the post-World War II policies in Western Europe.
