I'm a European Union citizen living in EU and applying for an assistant professorship position in US. The application form asks the question
For purposes of compliance with The Immigration Reform and Control Act, are you legally eligible for employment in the United States?
I know too little about U.S. immigration laws, and the text of the mentioned act looks complete gibberish to me. Could anyone say what the standard answer to this question would be and why?
Remark: this question is formally different from the one stated in a question on general eligibility (first, here the context is a particular legislation act with its own terminology, second, there the question contains "presently", and, third, there no answer refers to IRCA explicitly). In law matters, this difference may be important.
