Meaning of “Temporary” Work Under 8 U.S.C. § 1101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(b)

Headnotes: 

A regulation proposed by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services providing that “temporary” work under the H-2B visa program “[g]enerally . . . will be limited to one year or less, but . . . could last up to 3 years” is based on a permissible reading of 8 U.S.C. § 1101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(b) and is consistent with the 1987 opinion of this Office addressing the meaning of “temporary” work under 8 U.S.C. § 1101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(a).
