Is it better that an illegal immigrant get a job that would normally be shipped overseas.?
If there is a job that is going to be shipped overseas that an illegal immigrant can do, would it not be better to let the illegal immigrant have the job. It is not hurting anyone since the job would be going overseas anyway. And it is one more job that the US will be keeping in this country.

Yes, but since picking lettuce, putting up drywall, washing dishes, and cleaning motel rooms are jobs that cannot be outsourced overseas, this question is purely hypothetical and not relevant to the debate over the contributions of illegal immigrants to the economy.
