Ignoring the fact I was keeping it as similar as I could by using a bordering country, what fields in SA are paying 2.5x or more? Citation?

Why only a border country? Are you trying to say ALL illegals come from Mexico?

I'm saying it's easier to immigrate without having to cross an ocean.

By this logic, there must not be any poor people in the US, since our per-capita income is in the top 10 worldwide.

Some information for you but you should learn to do your own research. Now again - bye! Get packing!

Saudi Arabia Guide: Working conditions, Salary & Working hours: Salaries in Saudi Arabia are usually similar

In addition to their salary, contract workers are awarded an ‘indemnity’ at the end of the contract period. Saudi Arabia legislates that the indemnity is based on the value of the entire remuneration package including performance bonuses (where applicable). The indemnity can be a significant amount of money if you’ve been working in Saudi Arabia for a long time, and many people manage either to accumulate a reasonable financial cushion or to live the high life. If you’re clever and disciplined, you should be able to do some of both.

Yeah, similar wages or slightly higher wages is nowhere near 2.5x or greater wages. Fail.

Here we go again.

It does not matter if they can make 10 times more here.

WE HAVE LAWS.

What part of we have immigration laws that illegal aliens CHOSE NOT TO ABIDE BY don't you get?

It is a CHOICE they make. It does not matter why they decided they were too good to wait in line.

They PURPOSELY broke the law and why do you keep defending them?

coolstorybro

Malamute claimed Saudi Arabia had wages 2.5x ours. He was wrong.

You make it sound all black and white but it's not. For starters, I'm sure they would CHOOSE to come legally but they can't because we don't let in enough blue collared workers. Looking at their economic situation and considering they can make 2.5x or more for their family and avoid drug cartels by coming here, I would argue that some are forced to break the law to provide food, safety, and protection for their family.
