High-tech industry big immigration bill winner

FILE – In this May 9, 2013, file photo Sen. Orrin G. Hatch, R-Utah, confers with Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, right, and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., left, as the Senate Judiciary Committee meets to address immigration reform on Capitol Hill in Washington. More than any other group, the high-tech industry got big wins in the immigration bill approved last week. It amounted to a bonanza for the industry, granting unlimited green cards to foreigners with certain advanced U.S. degrees, and greatly boosting visas for highly skilled foreign workers. And thanks to Hatch's intervention, the industry succeeded in greatly curtailing controls sought by Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., not shown, who aimed to protect U.S. workers. (AP Photo/J.
