I am posting a link that shows the jobs that are taken by illegal aliens from each state.

I know many think they just work in orange groves , but they work in housing, construction and many other areas.. many jobs taken.

Only because they are "foul". And, they will redirect to "CNN".

Illegal and still moving on up to "white collar": Undocumented workforce slowly donning white collars

I have personally watched illegals take the jobs of citizen workers in manufacturing here.

Plenty of stats out there on this.

So all those jobs are being taken from US citizens just waiting on line to get that job in roofing or picking vegetables.

Um no, Americans were already doing construction, landscaping, hotel and restaurant work before millions of cheap, illegals took them by working for less. There is no line for them to wait in anymore. As for picking vegetables only 2% of illegals are picking crops and for those jobs there are unlimited visas for legal, foreign pickers, it's not a career job for Americans and it is only seasonal work.

Times have changed, if those illegal immigrants disappeared tomorrow a large majority would go unfilled. Agriculture is a small percentage but a critical job that you won't see Americans take anytime soon.

There are 23 million unemployed Americans what makes you think those jobs would go unfilled? Why wouldn't those blue-collared American workers want those jobs back at a fair wage again? As I said, why would Americans take agricultural jobs when there are already unlimited visas for legal, foreign workers? I repeat, it's only seasonal work not a career job for Americans. The body can only take that kind of work for so many years anyway. Many Americans don't live in rural areas either.

Oh they will fill them if it pays enough. Not for slave wages.

Nope. Americans are actively discouraged from taking those jobs and then pushed out when they do. Immigrants both legal and illegal will put up with exploitation and unethical practices that Americans won't stand for: https://www.buzzfeed.com/jessicagarr...QYo#.iiVyq98ZR

All those jobs were done by Americans until illegals lowballed US citizens out of work. But hey justify it all you like.
