Australia’s immigration policy should be non-discriminatory on the grounds of nationality, ethnic origin, religion, language, gender, disability, sexuality, age, socio-economic background or skills.
Australia has a humanitarian and legal obligation to accept refugees.
Most refugees do not want to leave their homes. If measures were taken to stop global warming, if rich nations didn’t send troops to invade poor nations, and if rich nations stopped backing dictatorships or governments which are occupying another people’s land, then the number of refugees in the world would be far smaller. If multinationals stopped destroying local economies in developing nations, then the number of economic refugees would be far smaller.
