Introduction

The Immigration Act of 1990 altered the traditional methods of employment based immigration to the United States. Today, there are three (3) main categories and two (2) lesser categories for which an alien may seek immigration through their employment. This "preference" system, as it is known, creates categories based upon the ability, education, and experience of different workers coming to the United States and intending to immigrate via their prospective positions.
