Exactly right, if I were a refugee who arrived in a country and was provided all these services, I would want to try and give something back. Not only will this give them some self-pride, it'll also be a signal to the citizens of this country that refugees are not just here to sponge off us, but to do something in return.The Australian - ...In an attempt to capitalise on rising community anger at the continued flow of boats which have brought 2805 asylum-seekers to Australia so far this year, the Coalition will unveil a suite of measures harden its border security credentials. At the heart of those measures is a new, tougher class of temporary protection visa to be issued to all unauthorised asylum-seekers.
...Refugees whose visas were extended for more than a year would have full access to services such as Medicare and language training as well as work rights. But anyone unable to find a job could be required to work under a mutual obligation arrangement similar to the work-for-the-dole scheme for domestic jobseekers. "One of the best ways to help (refugees) is to get them into work," Mr Morrison said.
I believe that what angers most Australians is that people who are not real refugees are sneaking in via the back door and they are being allowed to sponge off us without working or doing a damn thing in return. It's almost as if the leftist government is more concerned about importing illegals than spending our money wisely and on what we want. That is simply not fair and the above looks like it might go a long way to address our legitimate concerns.
This ought to win the support of pro-illegals too, I'm sure they would be thrilled at the idea of more people working to better the community and putting something back into the country, unless off course they just think that non-white refugees are too stupid to work or something.
