The increasing number of foreigners, whether legal or illegal, in the Kingdom is one of the most important economic issues facing our country. Expatriates occupy jobs that could be otherwise filled by unemployed Saudis and they even crowd our streets with old, polluting cars unfit for the road.
To make matters worse, a large number of foreigners are illegally staying in our country and they have brought many vices, including theft, drug trafficking and prostitution with them.

let’s do that. we can say we’re just doing what the enlightened saudis are doing.
at the same time let’s enact the same immigration laws as mexico.
It is kind of easy to make fun of the Saudis and their ways but honestly they aren’t really don’t immigrate that much to other nations in great numbers.
There is not much irony towards them cracking down on illegal immigration since relatively few Saudis go overseas although there may be a few who overstay their visas.
