Send the illegals packing and you will see an increase in wages across the board
Except that will not happen. We have a thing called "minimum wage" in this country. Some states are higher than the federal standard. Some illegals work at fast food places. In your scenario, those minimum wage jobs will no longer pay minimum wage. Even though they will.

Like business administration, economics, electronics, computer science, CAD, surveying....

$40,000 a year plus pension and benefits for 9 months of work? I'd say that's doing very well indeed.
Have you tried living on $40,000 a year? Give it a shot. A family of five. Go on and let me know how that turns out.
