What jobs the illegal mexicans are taking away from legal American citizens?

Working on the fields, cleaning, roofing, washing dishes.... Basically any dirty jobs that americans are not in keen of doing..... Oh, I am not Juanita, not even mexican. I am a legal immigrant, and during my 10 years of being here I do not want to generalize, but americans do not like to do the dirty jobs.

We can all go back to washing our own dishes etc , like we used to , and I for one am willing to pay more for produce to be imported , if it will return the quality of life we all used to know . You obviously don't live in Phoenix , so you are ignorant of the crime that has followed the illegals there .

The Americans DID DO these dirty jobs. Its just that industries like meat packers and food companies refuse to pay Americans to do these jobs.
