Actually, it has happened, as numerous appointees to top Federal jobs found out when their history of hiring illegal workers was exposed.

No - I mean that it hasn't happened that an absence of illegal immigrants in the workforce has resulted in those types of jobs becoming the "jobs of the future."

As I pointed out upthread, there are numerous states in this country that have virtually no illegal immigrants in the workforce. Literally less than 1%, and in some cases close to 0%. Yet those states haven't seen the nanny and housekeeper sectors become the "jobs of the future." They're still just mostly low-paying jobs - irrespective of the absence of illegal immigrants in the labor pool.
