Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said that Australia PR immigrants are not a burden on the infrastructure of the nation. He has made this statement even as there is a heated debate in the nation over the population growth. These are actually irrelevant figures, he added.
The immigration policy of Australia has multiple aspects to it than realized by most of us, said the Prime Minister. Population growth is at the top of the agenda in Australian politics. The numbers have crossed 25 million. Leading personalities have warned that the way of life in Australia is under threat. This includes Dick Smith, the renowned entrepreneur. They are demanding severe cuts in immigration intakes of the nation, as quoted by the News AU.
However, Scott Morrison disagreed with these views on Australia PR immigrants. He said that it’s a myth that overseas immigrants are the biggest burden on the Australian infrastructure. Natural growth of population by residents and Temporary immigrants are far crucial factors.
I have never agreed that Australia PR immigrants are fuelling the growth of population said, Morrison. This is as the actual statistics do not support this, he added.
When it comes to population growth, let us consider that 10 additional people have been added, said the Prime Minister. Just 4 of them are provisional immigrants. 4 more were born in Australia, a natural increase. Just remaining 2 are Australia PR immigrants, said Morrison.
The figures from Australian Bureau of Statistics support the statement of the Prime Minister of Australia. The population of Australia increased by 388, 000 or 1.6% in 2017. A vast portion of it with 38% was from natural births category. Of the remaining, Australia PR immigrants were easily outnumbered by temporary immigrants.
