Status of Nonimmigrant Alien Temporary Workers During a Strike

Headnotes: 

Conclusion of prior opinion, 3 Op. O.L.C. 179 (1979), relating to status of nonimmigrant alien soccer players during a strike in North American Soccer League, reconsidered and affirmed.

There may be situations in which Immigration and Naturalization Service regulation requiring a nonimmigrant temporary worker, as a condition of his or her continued stay in this country, to cease working during a strike, would be sustained as a valid exercise of the Attorney General’s authority under the Immigration and Nationality Act.
