Immigration reform not good

Why would the "Gang of Eight" try to sell immigration reform to Americans as beneficial when common sense should tell us it is not beneficial? Who are driving these politicians -- interests from manufacturing, housing, agriculture, food service, etc.?
Recently, we were interviewing contractors to do work on our home. Two stated they would not provide a bid when we told them we refused to have undocumented workers on our property and would want to see E-verify papers if foreign workers showed up. We hired a contractor from another country who is legal.
H1-B visas -- why can't our schools educate American children to fill these jobs?
Why are we allowing visas to pregnant women so they can deliver an anchor baby, get an American passport for the child and go back to their country -- (maybe)?
There is an Initiative I-1277 produced by Respect Washington.us. Please take time to look it up -- www.RespectWashington.us. It states employers shall enroll in E-verify, proof of U.S. citizenship for voter registration, confirming citizenship for jurors, etc.
My grandfather arrived in this country just prior to World War OII and never expected a single handout and assimilated into the American culture.
