Why immigration is bad — for immigrants: An Australian perspective

Tanveer AhmedRebel Commentator

The huge flows of people around the world mean debates about immigration are rife, especially in the developed world.

Australia is in the midst of this debate with the country now having the highest rate of immigration in the OECD. The debate often pits natives against potential immigrants.

This misses the fact the group most hurt by flows of new arrivals are other immigrants, especially those at the lower end of the labour market.

I have, as an aussie 8th generation, struggled big time in that 2 “skilled” jobs I was pushed out of because Filipino & Indians do a worse job but for way less. Also – banging on about “The Sudanese” is not helping. There are plenty of South Sudanese – from Christian families – who are finding it ultra tough because 1) their Dads are given welfare and return home and live large 2) our media blame every other crime in Melbourne on the Sudanese. The truth is that more Muslim Somali and other Africans as well as middle east and Turkish and southern europeans, and especially Chinese with Vietnamese mules are what is messing up this city, apart from the traffic getting impossible and the house prices in another orbit.

Australia and the U.S. have to stop thinking and saying that Canada has a reasonable immigration system, we do not. When Justin Trudeau and Gerald Butts got in as Prime Minister, Ahmed Hussen as Immigration Minister, and Ralph Goodale as Minister of Public Safety all bets were off.

Skilled migrants? what skilled migrants? There are no limits. There is no attention paid to demographic. We are being absorbed by people mostly from cultures that clash with ours, who have no skills , or even literacy in some cases. Flooded with people who don’t care for us much, and are a huge drain on our resources and infrastructure. That’s Canada’s immigration system and it sucks. Success? It is a disaster in the making here. Multiculturalism in Canada has been ruined by the introduction of Islam here. There is just no other way to say it.

I’ll tell you what threatens immigrants who want to assimilate and be a part of Canada, orthodox Islam and the ISIS fighters Justin invites back into our country.

We need to be more selective of the type of immigrants we bring into the country. We at one time accepted people from white nations as well, now the only ones we get are minorities, that are fast becoming the majority. We get the illiterate, the unskilled, those that absolutely refuse to assimilate and most are welfare seekers that will burden all of our social systems to bankruptcy. Over the last few decades the type of immigrants that we are taking in are more revolutionaries, than those who came with the intention of settling here, contributing and becoming truly Canadian. They all want to change their newly invaded territory, into an exact copy of the oppressed regime they ran from. They come here with many limitations, lacking education, they have no identifiable skills, don’t speak our languages, have numerous cultural differences, some of which are a crime here. And their religion is a serious threat to our Judaeo-Christian Heritage as it violates our values, laws and morals.
There is one thing that most definitely needs to be done. And that is the total number of immigrants and refugees should under no circumstances exceed 10 percent of the countries total population. They must not be allowed to build up in numbers. That maybe one way of preventing too many of them from holding political office because as we are seeing elsewhere they take over and that is when you see real racism and discrimination committed by them against whites. In white nations they have done a lot to erase discrimination and intolerance, which is always taken advantage of by minorities. White nations have foolishly embraced Diversity, Multiculturalism and Political Correctness, concepts that are absent from Islamic and Black countries. If there is not a cure all real soon we will all be in the same sinking ship.

Mr Ahmed short analysis covers the major issues of no-rules immigration. I believe this problem will only get worse as technologies widen the skill gap.

Doug; luckily I suffer from hearing loss and didn’t hear what you said.

I’m single, Dirk. The crystal ball isn’t what got the extensive rubbing this morning.

Of course it wasn’t an obvious clue when a skilled worker New Zealand guy had to pass an English language test.

Canada’s skilled migrant program is pretty much on the park brake.
Take a guess why.

And while waving my hand madly in the air, I said, "Oooh, teacher, pick me, pick me. I know this one!!!
“Prime Minister Soxenherr.”

Was I right?
