Default How does this help the H1's or people in AOS.

The accord endorses legalizing the status of illegal immigrants already in the United States and opposes any large new program for employers to bring in temporary immigrant workers, officials of both federations said.
is the bottom line

.................Many unions oppose the programs because the immigrants are tied to one employer and cannot change jobs no matter how abusive the conditions, so union officials say they undercut conditions for American workers. Highly skilled foreign technology engineers and medical specialists also come on temporary visas....................

Abuse and unfairness is what we must target - even for Legal immigrants.
If we get a respite for changing jobs, will take the stress off quite a bit.

The hope is that there will be some provisions for the legal immigrants. I do not see how they can just ignore the legal backlog. It could turn out to be a PR nightmare for the Obama administration.

Looking back, the July 2007 fiasco was one of the by products of the failed CIR. Bush felt there was enough support to pass the CIR bill and hence wanted to address the legal immigration also. When that failed, they conveniently forgot about us and Mr. King kept adding amendments to the bill proposed by Lofgren!
