If all is fine and well with illegals working, why then do low-skill employers prefer them over American citizens?

They do huh? have you seen the competition among low skilled jobs in border states? the huge supply depresses wages and drives low skilled Americans out of the market. When all you have are Hispanics to hire, what are you going to do?? I would like you to post proof that American employers prefer illegal immigrant labor to American labor, then we will talk.

Again, employers prefer illegal immigrant labor is because illegals can be paid cheaply and cheated out of their wages if the company wants to, and the company pays some of them under the table as well and so, avoid taxes. The ones that use fake SSI cards obviously can be abused in some way since most of the time said employee with fake ID can't speak English anyway

Negative, we can go around and round on this.. show me proof that employers prefer illegal labor over American, I have already explained (as an employer in a border state) how you are wrong. your last statement was so fallacious it's not funny... proof please.
