Using common sense, you do understand that with the exception of home-builders and corporations that hire for menial jobs, illegal immigrants are more likely to work at restaurants, low-paying jobs than those that may require a post-secondary education?

I posted this earlier:

The Social Issues That Arise From Illegal Immigration
With the exception of....? That's like saying with the exception of the defense and health care industry........ Using common sense, you realize the construction and hospitality industries are two of the largest industries in the state that hire thousands of employees. And there are a lot more industries than just these that hire illegals. In my experience, nearly every small business hires illegals in some capacity here so it goes beyond identifying just a couple of industries. Even when you supposedly hire a legal service out of the phone book, guess who they outsource their work to.The same hospitals that criticize illegals for showing up to their ER in Arizona hire them to do landscaping, janitorial and kitchen services. It's just hypocrisy. Arizonans whine about the Federal government but then allow exceptions to hiring illegals with your implication that it's somehow okay to hire illegals if they work menial jobs. Sorry but you can't have it both ways.

Here is the bottom line. Most Americans do not knowingly hire illegal aliens. Arizonians included.
