Although each major amendment of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, the nation's first comprehensive immigration law, has had the positive effect of enhancing broad national policies, the position of the alien professional within the statutory framework has changed with each amendment. The result is that the professional must today comply with more requirements in order to enter the United States for the purpose of employment. The purpose of this Note is to analyze the changes in the immigration laws effected by the 1976 Immigration Act Amendments and the impact of these changes upon the alien professional.
