Foreign agricultural workers who performed seasonal agricultural work in the United
States for a least 90 days during the 12-month period ending on May 1, 1986, could
have applied for and been granted LTR status. INS adjusted the status of aliens granted
LTR status to that of an LAPR 1 year after the LTR application period closed.
Section 210(a)(5) of the INA specifies that an LTR SAW is considered an LAPR alien
for all purposes except immigration. Therefore, consider a SAW in either temporary
or permanent status to be eligible for any SSA program.
