Immigration targets.... targets.... if it is being managed at all it should be managed to account for the needs of our economy and the needs of our existing residents. Things like our overcapacity health care system, housing affordability, infrastructure etc are all reasons to manage immigration. This is not being done. Instead the department is focused on juicing it without consideration for these factors. This is my concern. Not people moving here, not immigrants, not other cultures here. The melting pot concept is what makes us great. But there is no need to force us into a vision dreamed up in seminars held in Davos by billionaires... WE should have a say in our communities. Otherwise it's colonisation not immigration.
But we are not a melting pot, we are a cultural mosaic. A melting pot might be an improvement.
