Saudi Arabia has a problem with illegal alien workers that rivals the one America has. Saudi Arabia has finally decided to do something about it. With 1/4 of Saudi Arabia's young men out of work, the country has finally put it's foot down with illegal workers and is deporting them back to their countries of origin. The illegal workers were sending their earnings back to their countries of origin ... just like many of the illegal Mexicans do here in the USA. By sending the illegals back out of Saudi Arabia, the outgoing flow of money is expected to slow down which will help the Saudi economy. And young out of work Saudis will be expected to be able to find work, which will also help the Saudi economy.

Of course, the countries that have to reabsorb the illegals back into their own economy will have a hard time. More unemployed people and no foreign money coming in from working in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia also has problems with a porous border, just like the USA does. So until they secure their borders, I imagine the two million illegals will just turn around and go right back into the country.

Sounds really familiar ....

Saudi Deportations Gain Momentum


Riyadh has said it wants to forcibly expel as many as 2m of the foreign workers, including hundreds of thousands of Ethiopians, Somalis, Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis, who make up around a third of the country’s 30m population.

At home, the exodus of illegal workers is being seen as the kingdom’s most radical labour market experiment yet. With one in four young Saudi males out of work, analysts applaud Riyadh’s determination to tackle the problem, but doubt the crackdown will achieve its objective, as Saudi nationals are unlikely to apply for menial jobs.

Overseas, the deportation is causing friction between Riyadh and the east African and southeast Asian countries that traditionally have provided Saudi Arabia with the bulk of low-wage workers that for decades have fuelled its economy. Ethiopia, Yemen, Somalia and several other countries are struggling to absorb the thousands of unemployed young men now returning, with development officials worrying about the impact on remittances

The consequences of this should be fascinating. A lot of Saudis are used to non-Saudis doing all the menial work. Finding Saudis to replace them will be... interesting.

I don't think so unless they want their bodies to be found in the desert sometime in the future. Not a place to break the ruler's laws when consequences are considered.

Which makes for an interesting comparison to the US.
As it would seem that a lot of the migrant workers in the US are doing menial labor work.

Though thats no excuse for illegal immigration.

You see my point! And here in the UK a lot of people are complaining about legal immigrants from Poland turning up and taking all the menial jobs. Problem is that most UK people won't go near those jobs themselves.

I wish Britain would have the balls to do this, for the last 10 years we have been flooded by immigrants mostly from Eastern Europe who live in large groups and happy to work for next to nothing driving down our wages.
The mentality of employers in Britain now is you will work for minimum wage and if you don't like it there's immigrants who will be more than happy to do it.

i thought that most of the foreign workers in the Arabian Peninsula including Saudi were experienced OIL workers and construction trades people.... from places like Pakistan etc

the young Saudi' has too much self worth to do that kind of vocation


essentially the Saudi non employable issues are far different than the USAs migration problem of individuals escaping from terror & poverty existing south-of-the-border

"You like cleaning toilets?"

For $15 an hour many people would make that choice and be very happy about it.

The description fits the empire profile at the tail end of the cycle......
The empire is overwhelmed by decadence as the citizens get fat and lazy, as well as to damn self important to take such jobs.....
Its all part of the empire cycle which every empire has followed from founding to destruction eventually by the very menials relatives from out side the borders.....

First they become unwanted illegal aliens then they become rebels and founders of new empires.

It's all a cycle...

Yeah,
Only Americans are evil for wanting their immigrants to be legal.
Everyone else is just trying to do the right thing.

By the way,
Saudi has 2 million. The US has 20-30 million depending on who you listen to.
Saudi wants them out. The US government intentionally interferes when the states try to prevent illegals from living in their states.

I wouldn't say the Saudi issue rivals the US issue.

At least the Saudis recognize that they have a problem.

If we would just cut back on new immigration we'd be much better off- even just cutting legal immigration would open up a lot of jobs, housing, etc.
