Ted Cruz’s choice of a potential running mate should come as no surprise.
One thing both Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina have in coming is their past support for H-1B visas and hiring foreign workers.
While CEO of Hewlett Packard, Fiorina was a prominent supporter of hiring foreign workers, laying off 30,000 HP employees and moving thousands of jobs to China and India. Once when questioned about shipping so many high-tech jobs overseas, Fiorina responded, “There is no job that is America’s God-given right anymore.”
Fiorina’s strategy of hiring foreign workers was included in a book by Ron Hira, called “Outsourcing America.”
In 2013, Senator Cruz introduced “Amendment Cruz 5” that would increase the cap on high-skilled workers coming to the US by 500 percent, from 65,000 to 325,000. Since running for president, he has backed off this proposal, and instead introduced the H-1B reform bill which sets a minimum wage of $110,000 for H-1B workers.

[pullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””] By teaming up with Fiorina, said John Miano, the founder of the Programmers Guild and co-author of a book about the H-1B visa with columnist Michelle Malkin, “Sold Out,” Cruz will lose the support of visa critics with Fiorina.
“The advantage Trump has had over Cruz is that Trump is perceived as being the one more likely to cast the money-changers out of the temple,” said Miano. [/pullquote]
