Unlikely scenario, since most of those jobs are ones most US citizens wouldn't deign to have in the first place ...

While it's probably true that a Mexican is not
very likely to steal a Corporate Lawyer's Job,
you're not taking into account that someone trying
to support a family by picking fruit might feel
a bit more pressured, esp. if that's the only
work to be found for a hundred miles of his home.

...doesn't even have to be an illegal alien...
in some cases the migrant pickers might even be
a college student on Walk-About that your boss
hires for the duration of the YEARLY HARVEST
willing to work for a $1 less than you can manage on.
