dc.description.abstract This paper is intended to provide information about the importance of immigration and provide an in depth look at two important global locations, Dubai and Silicon Valley. In order to comprehend why immigration is important and how in some cases locations are dependent on immigration, it is important to look in depth at the benefits of immigration and look at locations in which immigration is essential. In order to understand these points I conducted extensive research on reasons why immigration is important and how it benefits and has benefited societies. Additionally I found it important to compare two locations where immigration is essential which are Dubai and Silicon Valley. After looking in depth at these two locations, as well as evidence for why immigration is important, it is clear that immigration is a very important phenomenon and that although Dubai and Silicon Valley have many similarities, they differ a great deal in many ways. However, despite having similarities in terms of the dependence on immigration and cosmopolitan atmosphere, Dubai and Silicon Valley differ greatly due to different legal issues, employment, and the overall culture. Ultimately, immigration as a whole is beneficial and important, and in the case of Dubai and Silicon Valley, it is essential, and as the world becomes more interconnected, immigration will continue to increase, resulting in more communities like Dubai and Silicon Valley. en_US
