Why don't we just send them to New Zealand since all the Kiwis live here anyway. Oh by the way I am only just joking (

It is so interesting to see that fellow members on this forum are much more insightful than a lot of the politicians who make decisions for Australia. maybe they should frequent here more often to get the ideas of immigration reality

Something simple and straightforward can become very complicated when it involve politicians.

We as citizens do not know the full story but I am confident that the politicians do as they have 1000's of public servants feeding them information. I am happy to vote for any politician who is well informed of the issues and who has our nation's interest as their main focus rather than a politician who gets elected due to their fame.
I always shake my head in amazement when people like Clint Eastwood (great actor), Arnie (i'll be back), Sonny (my wife is Cher), HHMM Glen Lazurus (great footballer), seriously!! I was to scared to mention Ronald Regan. Got to go now secret police at my door hehe

Wow, what a huge number for one of the richest countries in the world with a population of 23 million...

Before the Syrian war, Jordan had a population of about 6 million.

In the two years of the war it has taken in a reported 250,000 refugees from Syria (and counting every day).

Prior to that, it took in a reported 750,000 refugees from Iraq.

Prior to that, it took in more than 1 million refugees from Palestine.

It is one of the most water-poor countries in the world. An estimated 80% or more of the land is desert, i.e. not habitable. It has a high cost of living and very low median wages. And yet it has not shirked its responsibilities to its fellow human beings, despite receiving relatively little aid for the requirements of the circumstances.

Seventeen thousand for a rich country of 23 million? Please.

I think a lot of people forget that Australia has developed to what it is now by being able to control who comes here.
Since WW2 Australia has taken in about 8million people and it has become a better country because of what each one of the immigrants has bought with them from there old country's.
Apart from the USA and Canada what other country's have accepted so many new citizens.
