    CNBC the UAE and Saudi Arabia's immigrant percentage to population is inaccurate. They are not immigrants, they are migrant workers who cannot stay permanently in the Middle East. They must leave the country after their employment contract expires or after they retire.

    I myself come from immigrant family, my parents were really considered "top skilled employers" and were on benefits due to old age.
    Whereas, I managed to get masters degree from reputed London university, and now working for multinational company and what I earn is more than what native graduates earn in their initial years of growth.
    This cam with persistent hard work and determination.
    Immigrant children are from the start giving the impression "you are good for nothing and would end up like your parents working for low profile jobs" and this is enough motivation to succeed.
    Children of immigrants will work harder to get self respect whereas it's not the same for natives that's why we contribute more.

    Nobody wants to stay in the middle east cause of the high temperature desert climate so they can afford having all the immigrants in the world knowing they will leave one day

    I don’t think you guys are lying but the tone makes it seem like your talking about the debate on illegal immigration. The stats on that are very different.
