That’s what a recent article in The Australian reports as it tells us that 20% of respondents want more migrants to come to Australia in an article titled, Two-Thirds Majority Back Current or Higher Immigration Intake.
I had to read this article a couple of times to figure out what the point of it all might be and am still not sure, except to use a “news” story to sway public opinion.
Remember, readers, as we know so well, Tony Abbott, Australia’s present Prime Minister was elected only last year because of his platform (which he apparently is working on daily to hear the squealing out of the UN) to slow the flow of boat people (faux asylim seekers) breaking into Australia. The citizens there were completely fed up!
We frequently cite Australia, Israel and Bulgaria as three countries seriously attempting to close their borders.
Check out the article yourself (here is a bit of it) posted at American Renaissance (with some good commentary). One thing seems clear, the pollsters polled heavily in immigrant neighborhoods and among young, rich, city dwellers.
Higher migration levels are favoured by a fifth of Australians, in an exclusive Newspoll survey revealing robust support for the most multicultural society on earth.
Nearly half the people surveyed support Australia’s existing immigration intake, which settled 190,000 immigrants last year in the world’s largest per capita intake. Two-thirds were skilled migrants.
Twenty-two per cent favour an even higher intake, with support strongest among the young, those on high incomes and capital city-dwellers.
European, African and Asian migration enjoys the strongest public support, with 26 per cent of Australians desiring more migrants from Europe. Another 18 per cent want to see more Asian migrants, and 20 per cent support more immigration from Africa.
In contrast, just 14 per cent of Australians want to see more Muslim migrants, and 37 per cent favour a cut.
By the way, about the same number (20%) of respondents who want higher immigration levels also say that Australians are racists.
LOL! This article could just as well have been titled: 86% of Australians polled want less Muslim migrants admitted to Australia. I guess that would mean that some of the immigrants polled and some of the young, rich, city dwellers are Islamophobic. Gee, I wonder why?
