Asylum seekers. The Oxford dictionary defines this as someone who has left their home as a political refugee to seek refuge somewhere else. These people have gone through hardships we cannot fathom. drought and famine may be just a few of the things they have experienced. Good morning Mrs/Mr ....... and my fellow students, I'm alan sajeev and today I'll will persuading you as to why asylum seekers should not be allowed into the country. Firstly, under the United Nations refugee convention, asylum seekers are allowed to exercise their right and as Australia is a signatory of this convention they are allowed to seeK asylum in our country. but think of the amount of time, effort and money would be needed to complete this task. Yes we could be like Germany and give them a home but look what has happened. Just …show more content…
currently we have a population of 24 million and a Victorian unemployment rate of 5.8%. Did you know that by 2020 most factory jobs will be replaced or gone. As you know many Holden and Toyota factories are closing down. This could soon increase the rate. Do we want to put asylum seekers who have come seeking a better life into these situation. do we want to increase the rate. also as our population increase we destroy more animal habitats and move further inland. According to the Australian Bureau of statistics, 90% of the population live near the coast or slightly further away. As we move further inland we destroy more habitats. Why do we want to increase our population and build more housing than necessary. For those asylum seekers who come and are financially unstable even buying or renting a house can be a big problem and with the brexit happening, global share prices and the economy could change. I ask you again do we want to put people who have come seeking for a better life through this. won't it be better for us to send aid to the respective countries and help them with there

In Australia, refugees and asylum seekers are treated like the enemy in a war: the target of a highly resourced, military-led “deterrence” strategy complete with arbitrary detainment, detention camps, guards to terrorise them, forced deportations and the violent suppression of those who protest. Australia is failing to meet the standards required when regarding the treatment of asylum seekers. It is fact that asylum seekers make up less than 3% of Australia’s annual immigration yet the idea is being distorted to that of which they will overpopulate a country that prides itself on being a multicultural society. I want to shed light on the misconception that asylum seekers are not ‘legal’ when in actual fact it is a human right to seek freedom.
‘The Tampa Decision: Examining the Australian Government’s prerogative power to detain and expel unlawful non-citizens in 2001’ The executive power of the Commonwealth has largely been neglected, both by the High Court and by commentators, receiving scant attention in comparison with the Commonwealth 's legislative and judicial powers. However, it was just fourteen years ago, in 2001, when a Norwegian cargo vessel MV Tampa being denied entry into Australia after rescuing 438 asylum seekers sparked one of the most controversial yet illuminating civil cases in Australian legal history. The result was a civil suit (Ruddock vs Vadarlis 2001) in which the Federal Government successfully appealed the initial ruling to the Full Court of the Federal Court of Australia, where it was found that the government does indeed possess a prerogative power to prevent the entry of non-citizens into
How would you feel if you and your family were denied the opportunity to a better life or had to wait years for one? The immigrants goal is to strive for a better future for themselves and their family. Coming here will help them achieve that goal. You may be thinking why cant they have a good future where they live? In some cases, the country they live in could be poor, not have many schools, is not safe, etc.
Australians need to help refugees learn our culture and language, without degrading and eroding their culture and language. Just because Australians are blessed to be able to have a decent education from a young age, it doesn't mean that refugees are denied any opportunity for a successful
Dear fellow nasty women and bad hombres, America is one the greatest experiments in freedom and liberty history has ever known. We are a nation that was built on the minds and ideals of immigrants. Our Founding Fathers created America so that everyone could have a chance at "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness". Those are aspects of my country, I would never change because they are what make us unique. The glow of America casts a ripple of hope upon those who struggle.
Australia is known as a country of freedom and fairness, however many groups such as youth, the unemployed, aged, and ethnic groups tend to become marginalised because of their minority status. Certain groups are marginalised because they are perceived as being different or undeserving of equality in society. This is called stereotyping and it leads to prejudice and discrimination. This essay explores three marginalised groups and discusses some of the reasons why they are marginalised and the effects on those within these groups. Exclusion from areas such as employment and other services and opportunities that other Australian 's take for granted, is a result of the marginality of indigenous Australian 's, woman, and those with
The treatment of refugees and asylum seekers in Australia is unacceptable and with mandatory detention it makes matters even worse. The treatment that families and children go through is a monstrosity. All of the reasons that have been listed is why ‘If I could change one thing about Australia’ it would be changing the way refugees are treated here and making them feel safe in Australia by connecting them to the
People who flee from countries which are oppressing them, escaping for their lives. Australia’s inhumane treatment of asylum seekers and the mandatory detention policy means that asylum seekers are locked in a detention centre until they are processed, which can take years. In recent events, Australia’s asylum seeker policies have been heavily criticised
People who have been thrust into a completely unfamiliar situation where the differences in daily life leave a big gaping hole. They have to suddenly adjust to living in a completely different way. And often, refugees have to adjust to being in a situation where people might be unfair to them based on where they used to live or their way of life. Refugee children often feel the ache of losing their homes more profoundly than their elders. The article “Refugee and Immigrant Children: A Comparison” states “Once in Canada, they both have to endure the ‘push-and-pull’ forces of home and
An asylum seeker is someone who is seeking international protection but whose claim for refugee status has not yet been determined. In contrast, a refugee is someone who has been recognised under the 1951 Convention relating to the status of refugees to be a refugee. • Why they come to Australia?
Australia has been labelled as the country of mateship, fair-go and tolerance, but the mistreatment of Asylum seekers in Australia denies these values. In our anthem we sing “For those who’ve come across the seas, we’ve boundless plains to share”. It ironic isn’t it? As when Asylum seekers arrive in Australia we do not offer a hand of mateship instead we use punitive matters such as sending them to mandatory detention, which shows how xenophobia is manifested in Australia (Ariyawansa,
When we think of nationalism we often associate a sense of identity with stare and nation, for some the idea of there identity being connected to their nation is a positive notion, but for others this association to nation raises worry of alienation and violence.1 Nationalism can be seen as a network where individuals of a nation can have shared values, expectations and sense of self. These negative associations of nationalism “occurs when, in the process of seeing ourselves as uniquely Australian others suffer. ”2 An example of this would be the Cronulla riots where violence was inflicted upon those people that Australians born residence did not deem then worthy of being identified as Australian due to their ethnic background and the colour
Families entering the refuge countries suffer from displacement and separation, grief and mental agony, gross violence in their countries of origin and are needy, helpless and vulnerable who need to be taken care of. Australia for example has ratified numerous
Emigration, the act of such persons leaving their country and heading to a country of foreigners for different reasons. Immigration has never been an easy choice, but recently factors have made it easier. Immigrants, in my point of view, can be divided into two kinds, the first are people leaving their countries looking for a source of money and escaping the struggle of poverty, and the other kind are people looking for a peaceful life with no bombs damaging their hometowns every day, escaping wars and political persecutions looking for the freedom they have always been missing. I see that the immigration crisis nowadays is in its worst, as we can see, according to the UNHCR (The UN Refugee Agency), there are 65.6 million displaced people worldwide,
