Illegal immigrants comprised less than 6% of the transport and utilities industry’s total workforce. The trucking industry in the U.S depends a great deal on immigrants, with people coming in droves from Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and Latin America to take these jobs. The proportion of illegal immigrant drivers also varies from state to state.
