The Only female MP in Kuwait is Anti Expat and wants to deport and Tax helpless Expats. Many of these low income Expats are very hard-working and paid huge amount for Visa to enter Kuwait. Many are working under Harsh weather conditions like construction site and oil and gas sector. Hire Poor Expats then deport them. Hire and Deport, May be even TAX them. It''s business in Expats Name.

No need to feel that much.
As you don''t like expats I guess you have Kuwaiti driver, Kuwaiti Maid, Kuwaiti cleaner at home, and hope you always consult Kuwaiti doctor with Kuwaiti nurse....
If you don''t need expats just stop issuing new visas. and deport all existing expats.
Then give ads
" Urgently required Kuwaiti driver, Kuwaiti Maid, Kuwaiti cleaner, Kuwaiti salesman, Kuwaiti engineer, Kuwaiti doctor, Kuwait barber, Kuwaiti Shepherd, Kuwaiti surgeon, Kuwaiti accountant etc.....
