Immigration policy of Australia

June 8, 2016

I am fully with Peter Dutton and can see what the man has to say. And I am astonished at the limited understanding Australian people, in general, have about accepting refugees.

I am not saying stop people from entering the country. There are thousands of skilled labor willing to enter Australia and contribute to its economy. That is the kind of immigrants a country should really look for.

I am myself an immigrant and committed to contribute positively to Australia. The minister is correct in saying that the refugees haven’t been skill tested and most of them will either add to the unemployment queues or be a burden to the social welfare system. How many of us want Medicare gone ?

There is serious shortage of skilled jobs in Australia. I know the DIBPs SOL does not indicate so. But if you hang around immigrant forums, there are so many highly skilled people complaining about lack of jobs – at all levels – even getting a job flipping burgers in Maccas is getting difficult. What jobs do you think the refugees will do ? What contribution, positive, if at all, will this mob make ?

Germany took in a million people from a war torn part of the world. The world appreciate their gesture. The ones rallying for human rights but without a vision on the future were teary eyed and so proud of Deutshe land. Look at what they end up with ? Locals are now rallying against their government’s decision. I do not know the ground reality but it sure looks like the ones which were given refuge are now devouring and plundering that country. Women are being raped and anti social behaviour at public places is rampant.

It is important to look at the background from which most refugees seek refuge from. If they are not just economic refugees, then a thorough psychological evaluation of people being accepted must be undertaken. If a person has only seen, spoken and retaliated in violence, I believe that person will take a very long time to adjust to normal society. Sure, there are genuine refugees who are in serious threat to their lives and well being who should be welcomed with open arms. But am almost certain such crowd will never get involved in violent, anti social behaviour and it this rant is simply not against those people.

It is also ignorance which can make people say there will be a few bad apples and that a few incidents shouldn’t stop Australia from accepting thousands of refugees.

A simple example is the recent publicity of the menace the Apex gang is causing in Melbourne. It is mostly African youth and I am almost willing to bet these (or their parents) were the same ones who were given refuge in Australia. Then the government spent a fortune for them to keep entertained while in camps – sport matches and sight seeing tours and making them stay in star hotels etc. These are the same people who we would have thought would have collaborated with the Australian culture and contribute to our society and economy. Instead, they are running amuck causing damage to public and private property.

I say lets have a three strike policy for all these adopted citizens and permanent residents. Essentially, if you have a country that is legally bound to take you in when all other countries refuse, then this policy applies to you. If found guilty of three crimes or found alleged in 5 crimes, which ever is earlier, you will be kicked out of Australia.

I wish to leave my children in an Australia relatively free of crime. Nay, at least in an Australia – from where
they don’t have to seek refuge from another nation – only because we today failed to conceive of a possibly rooted future for this great nation.
