Only insofar as corporate collusion for the continuance of illegal immigration constitutes contemporary slavery. Let's call a spade a spade, as they say. The reason illegal immigration continues is the same reason meat packing plants have illegals working for them. It's the same reason the entire Agribusiness corporation giants like ADM and others use them to work for just what would sustain them. Just their room and board, basically.
There is no desire to assimilate them. They can be deported when they get rowdy. In 19th century US, try "deporting" a bunch of rowdy slaves. Back then you would kill them. Nowadays, that is not so easy, and as a result, we modify their status.
Think about it: Back before emancipation, the "master" had to provide for the slaves, constructing housing units and providing food - even if it was meager and had to be nutritionally enhanced and stretched by the slaves themselves to provide for all. Nowadays, the "masters" have outsourced the food production and boarding to the "slaves" in the form of a pittance of a stipend...no taxes required.
