Some say he's 89 and others say he is 91 but whatever the number; it is pretty near the time to die for human beings. That is how old
But here lies the problem. Regardless of what people may say,
These laws and rules laid down in these dictatorships do not necessarily follow any particular political philosophy, not entirely capitalist, not entirely socialist and even not entirely logical, acceptable or even lawful. They are just edicts or orders from above which inevitably become law.
The reason for the massive immigration imbalance between local and migrant workers was the unwise decision by the dictatorship to expand its economy at any cost, which meant unrestricted immigration.
