Australia is a country of immigrants, so accepting refugees is part of the national ethos. Immigrants can make a country stronger because they add to the population. New people can bring new talents to the labor force. Immigrants can bring new customs to a nation that can make its culture more rich.
I honestly dont understand the people going against this topic with RACIST comments and arguments. If you're going to be racist then get your facts right at least or you'll sound like an uneducated idiot. If you are just stating that refugees cannot come into australia because of the fact that they are a different race and not white, then go stuff YOURSELF. Australia was not built on a white society, they were ABORIGINAL , meaning they are black. DO NOT SAY AUSTRALIA WAS BUILT ON WHITE PPL. Thank you for your time.
Did you know that australia only takes 0.3% of the worlds refugee population. In fact in the past 2 years Australia has only granted 6501 refugee visas!! Compared to countries like germany and italy who offer the better part of a million homes to those who are in need. We should be ashamed of ourselves! Imagine you were a refugee! Al they want is to be at peace. Also last time i checked Germany hadn't been bombed by refugees. And to say that they could be terrorists is crap! Terrorists usually travel by plane not by leaky faulty boats that usually end up nowhere . So next time you decide to be an ignorant pig think about those in need and actually think before you type .
Refugees should be allowed but only the good ones(e.G. Frances). Not the dumb terrorist that blow up Manchester. That hurt people and KILLED people. Help them, they can be living in poverty and bad times, they want to move to Australia start a new live and forget about the past but the Prime minister is stopping that from happening!
Why not, like seriously why not?///????????????????????????????????????????????? They are humans too, like day, HUMAN BEINGS, U KNOW LIKE HOMOSAPHIENS, LIKE GOD JESUS AMEN, let them in, put your self in their shoes, pretty disgusting shoes but yeah U would want help right? EXACTLY... JESUS AMEN ASS SUCK ASS NIKI MANAJ ASS
Australia is nothing if it weren't for immigrants. As a multi cultural nation we have a duty to care.
People need to stop saying people from certain countries and religion shouldn't be allowed here, or that they will not assimilate and will take all our jobs.
We are all human, not animals. If we ignore these people cry for help then that would make us animals with no hearts.
And to all the racists, this is Australia. People have the right to dress and eat and drink whatever they want. Not everyone has to drink piss and throw bottles at the police to assimilate.
Given its location in the world, Australia would be a great location for refugees. However, the country shouldn't have to bare the brunt of a flood of people. All prosperous countries around the world should be in the situation to welcome more asylum seekers. It is the price of prosperity.
You think that you just refuse people that are poor and being threatened and want a life style like we have. Some of you think they can destroy this country and stop people coming here for holidays?
You can avoid that by helping them live like us. Just put yourselves in their shoes and try to go to another for love and safety and then just get refused. Not cool
With the many issues happening around the world right now, it isn't a surprise that immigration rates are increasing per country. People are fleeing their countries to survive and seek refuge from countries who are in power. Some of these powered countries refuse the entry of these refugees and redirect their boats before they land on shore.
If we were stuck in the same situation wouldn’t we want people to help us out too?
According to the latest figures, there are now 1.8 million refugees in Turkey, 1.5 million in Pakistan, 1.2 million in Lebanon (a country with a population of just 4.5 million).
We have room for double our intake, so why not help more????
1. Did we forget our national anthem?
"For those who’ve come across the seas
We’ve boundless plains to share;
With courage let us all combine
To Advance Australia Fair. '
Refusing refugees asylum, isn’t that contradicting our own national anthem?
2. Who's choice?
This land was, is and will always be owned by the Indigenous Australians. We came here and invaded their land in the year 1788, we committed heinous crimes towards the Indigenous Australians and are now making decisions on their behalf.. Who do you think we should be asking this question to? I know that I'd ask Shareena Clanton.
3. Human Rights plain & simple
Australia breaches article 14 of the universal declaration of human rights (amongst many other general human rights) when we say no to accepting refugees as we disregard their right to seek asylum.
Oh and remember, fight the argument not the arguee, cheers!
Being the only country in the region, where the white people still have majority, Australia should preserve it self from the invasion of the Islamic extremists. Theses people, who claim are genuine refugees are following the orders of their brain washed religious leaders and come to Australia with the only aim to overpopulate it with Muslims.
Why the Islamic countries do not show more initiative and accommodate for the "refugees"? Just think. Why the target destination is always a white Christian country???
I think no because eventually all of Australia will be all owned my Asians and Chinese I'm not trying to be racist in anyway but I read that one Chinese guy brought over 10,000 acres of land in act so I am going to say no. I mean I have a few friends that are immagrants/reffugees and they are great but they are not buying all of Australia so they can turn it into their country of birth.
For christs sake wake up. The Muslims are planing on taking over do your research look into their beliefs and their plans you will soon shut Australians doors to them all. Their are more mosques in Australia now then churches can not any one see what is going on.They are infultrating ever suburb in Australia one by one. In not timewe will all end up with out heads cut off. Look I to the the Muslim plan to convert the whole world if you dont convert they WILL slash your throaght or behead us all. NO MORE!! ITS ALREADY too late if you are asking me.
The immigrants can come in and take all the 'true' Australians jobs and housing spaces and money. Australia is under no inclination to accept more refugees and put it's economy under pressure from new presences that can take the cash flow off the Australians. The more people there are also means the more food and water that has to be produced and supplied to cities
We don't need any more or any less, we are taking the right amount of refugees each year. If we take any more, Australia will get too crowded like countries in Europe, and if we take any less we will feel terrible and, of course, they do need our help! We are taking the perfect amount.
Given that Australia has taken in a lot of refugees, other countries should do the same. Australia is a very populated country and with these refugees we will be soon over populated. Tony Abbott was right in his choice to stop asylum seekers coming to Australia, as they are coming from countries that could soon be a threat to Australia.
Diversification will lead to more interracial relationships and so Australia will lose its white beauty. Also as whites shrink as a percentage of the population, they will become increasingly disenfranchised and discriminated against. The new black/Asian population will constantly complain that too many companies are owned by whites, that whites are over-represented in Australian TV (even though whites write everything, pay for everything and make everything). Immigration and diversification is a can of worms that is better left shut firmly.
I need all the mooney not them poopoo head just why im 12 and i have more rights than your grandad and his saggy ball that why i am respected and im 12 i get want i want even if it means saggy tities yea bois im not gay lol
Australia is probably one of the safest countries not denying the fact of not sharing borders and keeping its people's security first rather than worrying about someone else's people.Also Australia is a rich nation and we dont wants millions of refugees coming in here and getting basically free stuff whereas other people have spent their money and worked their ass off just to come here and still are working their ass off to sustain and build a better lives not only for themselves but their children.And when the people are struggling refugees are basically getting anything for granted .PLEASE STOP THIS! ENOUGH!
They steal jobs, houses and bring terror into Australia. There will be a rise of terrorists attacks and first home buyers won't be able to afford homes. They take job off young Australian too. I am only 12 years old and I understand why we should not bring refugees so why can't the labor and greens party understand that!
