Abstract/Citation: Agricultural workers admitted under the seasonal agricultural worker (SAW) program of the Immigration and Nationality Act ("INA") (as amended by the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986) were legally entitled to seek employment outside agriculture. As this could entail a shortage of workers in the field of agriculture, the INA provides a framework for admitting additional workers to work in seasonal agricultural services. These regulations establish how to establish if there is such shortage which would entail an additional admission of seasonal workers.
