Before the recession hit no one wanted to do the jobs illegals get. Not being able to find work now and being willing to do the jobs you would never do previously is desperation. Americans created the huge amount of available illegal work, now they understand the consequences of that.

That's a myth.
Those "jobs that Americans don't want to do" that Democrats scream about are all done by white people here.
Americans aren't doing them because illegal immigrants work for less because they're not subject to minimum wage. And employers don't have to pay twice what they pay the person to the government and in state-mandated benefits.
A $7.25 an hour citizen actually costs around $20 an hour to employ in most states; and at least around $15 in the rest.
A $5 an hour illegal only costs $5 an hour to employ.
