Exactly which jobs is it that illegal immigrants take and what is the link to corporations?
There appear to be many claims that big business, corporations, or "rich people" are responsible for illegal immigration. I would like to know which jobs that illegal's perform are tied to corportions. Please provide sources.

Cheap labor makes employers even richer, and they have no employment rights so are easily exploited, also lowers the wages for American workers.

In my area the main jobs that illegals take is farm jobs. They pick onions, cabbage, etc... I do know that they sometimes get illegal SSN and they use it to do jobs in factories.

I won't stun you with my bazillion sources, that ticks people off sometimes. So here's 1: OK, maybe two. I wouldn't want to be unfair and leave out the CEO of Halliburton as hiring illegals - that would be Dick Cheny our vice president: http://www.saveourstate.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=5455

They take the menial jobs that nobody else wants. The corporations hire them to fill hard to fill vacancies and because they are cheap. Then they claim they didn't realise they were illegals.

I'm afraid I won't be able to give sources, but I live in Mexico and have been keeping somewhat up on the topic. The jobs that illegal immigrants "take" are low-paying jobs: restaurant work, janitor, construction (which isn't low-paying if you're union). These are jobs that in the last few decades have been generally... More

Illegal immigrants usually go for jobs in the farming industry. They are not hurting anyone as the only reason they have these jobs is because no legal immigrants or citizens have taken them in the first place, and these positions are opening and closing all the time.
