Should The Australian Government Support Refugees Build A Life In Australia?
Green Connect is an Australian urban farm that employs former refugees who
are struggling to find work. One refugee tells the BBC how it “changed his
life dramatically” after he arrived from the Democratic Republic of China.
What do you think LiveTribers, should the Australian Government support refugees
build a life in Australia?

If any allowed to reside refugee wants to have a go.....give them help..... but
don't modecoddle by overcompensating using hardworking taxpayer funds.
The hospitality of Australia is one of the best in the treatment of refugees the
trouble is that past instances of Serbian tactics should not be forgotten >>
,... The protests and demonstrations ! We can live together with peace . The
funding should be investigated , The tradesmen and higher group of tradesmen
can be used in positions with equal Australian occupations of Australians ( This
could work ) .!! The sexes , they have always survived and help is always there
I agree to a certain extent but there are their own people in this country now
who can return the help the Australian people gave them. We have too many of
our own people living in poverty, on the streets, in dire need of health
services and housing and yet are put last on the list. On top of this, some of
these migrants and refugees are not law abiding and in my opinion should be
expelled from this country if not following our laws. First time warned but two
strikes and you are out of course depending on the severity of the situation.
I agree there are many genuine refugees and migrants but all too often Australia
is taken advantage of and the governments of all levels seem to over compensate
to the minorities.
I do not agree with the refugees being in detention for years either. Make a
decision and either let them out or send them elsewhere. If they do not have
documents stating who they are I would have to ask why not. I would think that
would be the first thing they would bring with them so the delay is not caused
by our government but by the refugee's lack of documentation. However, 2 years
should be the maximum and then a decision should be made.
No. They don't assist native Australians, nor migrants. Many refugees arrive
with assets and are given much more than deserving people here have. Returned
Service people are homeless and in need of help and care, but are ignored. Even
children are living on the streets! Get priorities right. Most 'refugees'
aren't, and can go elsewhere.
A bit harsh. Yes I agree our service men can be and are treated badly and we
have a lot of homeless and people in need of help and care and being an elderly
woman it is hard to get any help unless I pay for it and unfortunately do not
have the funds so I puddle along doing the best I can.
I feel there are enough of their own people now in this country who have been
helped by our government and now they in turn should help their fellow
countrymen and woman adjust to life in Australia. There are clubs such as the
Italian Clubs, German Clubs etc. who used to help so presume they still do. The
Jewish community also help their people too.
Once cannot expect us Aussies to keep handing out money hand over fist whilst
our own people are suffering and struggling. It has to be a balanced approach
and let's face it, not many of these people are grateful. They take and expect
more and complain. Seen it too many times which makes me angry. Not all but
enough to feel like we have been taken for a ride.
I know many come from war torn countries and have medical or mental issues and
yes we pay for the medical treatments. However, we have a long list of our
people with mental issues getting no treatment, hospital surgery waiting lists
years long, dental waiting lists years long. Housing placement years long as
the new ones arrive many with families and they get top priority whereas a
single person or couple waiting for years gets pushed down the list all the
I agree these people need help and they are welcome to my country to live in
peace but it is not a one way street.
As for Green Connect one could say it is biased against the Australians in favor
of refugees but many Aussies do not want to work on farms.
I think it should not be just for these refugees but any person who wants to
work. It is discriminatory otherwise.
