There is no surprise for visblity of illegals. Reason they are 12 million people impacted.Legal immigrants who are impacted are a few hundred thousand. And Illegas cannot lead a comfortable life when they leave USA. But H1bs can go India or any other country to get high paid job. Also Top class jobs are less than 20% of USA workforce but low skill jobs are more than 80%. Illegals are aiming those 80% of jobs. Layoffs are common in high tech jobs when economy slows. So Americans are afraid of H1bs whereas layoffs are not common in low skilled jobs(even a Macdonald worker laid off he can get a similar job easily in any economy. So americans are not afraid of illegals. but in bad economy if a programmer loses a job then it is taking months or years to get a suitable job). Unless american jobs are protected from H1b there is going to be stiff oppostion to H1b and Gc increase. There are some protections in current H1b laws but they are just formal and rarely implemented. Now economy is good there is really shortage of skilled people but when they increase H1b too much then supply will increase. Congress should not give what immigration lawyers or Corporations are asking.There should be good mechanism to get more H1bs and Gcs when american workers are not available to those jobs and also some balance between demand and supply. There should be exemptions for Phds and Top scientists from the cap.
