“Prior to 1990, there was a much clearer distinction between immigrant and non-immigrants under the law. However, when Congress enacted the Immigration Act of 1990, it made a total mess of the system. One path to chaos was to allow H-1B and L non-immigrants to apply for permanent residency.
This was rationalized with the Orwellian concept of “dual intent”, wherein a foreigner applying for a non-immigrant (i.e. temporary) visa could be considered to simultaneously intend to return home and intend to remain the U.S.
This change had a number of entirely predictable effects. First, it transformed green cards into a publicly provided fringe benefit for employers to induce aliens to become guestworkers”.
