Encouraging assimilation: Our future way of life depends on enacting tough measures now

Encouraging assimilation: Our future way of life depends on enacting tough measures now. By Pauline Hanson.

The bedrock of a successful society is formed by common language, common values, and common goals. When societies lose sight of this then the bedrock is eroded and societies break down. Time and time again we have seen the corrosive effect large-scale migration has on the bedrock of cohesive societies.

We can see it in Europe as the millions of economic migrants have been shipped in by dishonest governments under the guise of humanitarian refugee programs which have changed the very fabric of traditional European society.

Billions of dollars have been spent by governments around the world seeking to minimise the negative impacts, such as terrorism and rising violent crime, of these massive, poorly vetted waves of immigration.

Australia could avoid the problem altogether by dramatically reducing the overall number of immigrants allowed into the country each year by introducing a zero-net immigration policy. …

I propose we take protective measures in the form of an assimilation program. … These measures would include, but are not limited to, an increase to a minimum of eight years of permanent residency prior to citizenship; much more rigorous English language testing; and the requiring of prospective citizens to sign an Australian values statement. …

Recently Prime Minister Scott Morrison asked me to provide evidence of my claim that in 2016-17, the government issued some 40,000 permanent visas to people born in sub-Saharan Africa, North Africa and the Middle East.

I sent the PM’s office the spreadsheet, with information sourced from the Department of Home Affairs, showing the break up by country of the 291,975 permanent visas issued to people from Africa and the Middle East in the past decade. I haven’t heard back. …

Australia should look to countries like Denmark, which requires migrants in isolated ethnic enclaves to send their children to mandatory day care, for a minimum of 30 hours a week, so that they can participate in a course on Danish values. This includes issues such as gender equality, community participation and co-responsibility. The Danish government has also proposed a possible four-year prison sentence for immigrant parents who take their children on extended visits to their country of origin, in a way that the government says, compromises the children’s schooling, language and wellbeing.

Ms Hanson is consistent to her Party’s name.
