There were important population figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics this month. The most important was “the number of overseas arrivals was the highest on record”. That’s right, the highest on record and our nation's groaning infrastructure simply can't cope.
That's why Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi says Australia’s immigration intake needs to be immediately halved and we must also ensure that Australia is in control of its visa system which should be reviewed along with the qualifying criteria for citizenship.
The Australian reports, last financial year, 540,000 people arrived in Australia, with 315,000 arriving on temporary visas. Of those who arrived on temporary visas, there were more than 150,000 international students, just more than 50,000 working holiday-makers and 32,000 temporary workers.
Senator Bernardi has told Paul Murray Live on Sky News our migrant intake is out of control.
