Immigration Reform: Who benefits?

Sad news about Ted Cruz...
Middle class workers and the working poor are clearly getting hammered by the current importation of foreign workers. In life there are winners and there are losers. If American workers — especially middle class workers — are losing, and losing big, someone must be winning. The question is simple, “Who benefits from open borders and failures to enforce the immigration laws?
What is generally not known is that among the provisions of Comprehensive Immigration Reform, the legislative betrayal of American citizens, is that it would provide for a huge increase in the number of H-1B visas for high tech workers and a provision that would, for the very first time, permit the spouses and adult children of H-1B visa holders to be granted Employment Authorization Documents (EAD’s) that would give these nonimmigrant family members as much right to any job as an American worker.
Senator Ted Cruz, however, is truly leading the charge against American high-tech workers. He provided an amendment to Comprehensive Immigration Reform (S.744) referred to as “Cruz 5.” The goal of his amendment was made crystal clear in the video of statements by Cruz at a Senate hearing on this issue. His amendment provides for a 500% increase in the cap for H-1B visas, increasing the current annual cap of 65,000 such visas to an outrageous 325,000 Science, Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) professionals.
