1) Who knows. I guess that would depend on his qualifications and the proclivity of the owner to hire a young black man. What do you think?
2) Why do you think that immigrants have been so readily available?

Capitalism is built on maximizing revenue and minimizing costs. Companies stretch the law as far as they can to accomplish this. Even if every single undocumented worker from Mexico was unlawfully employed, there are far more than 11 million jobs in the U.S. Those companies are hiring someone, somehow.

I'm not sure how you can speculate about this. Are you trying to infer that without the undocumented labor that there would be no company? Be assured that if there is market demand, that there will be companies there to meet it.
