Overhaul of migration an 'important dicussion' | Sky News AustraliaLabor backbencher Ed Husic insists there is an “important discussion to be had” on overhauling migration amid an internal tussle over the proposal. \n\nShadow Home Affairs Minister Kristina Keneally triggered the stoush at the weekend by aruging Australians must get a first go at jobs. \n\nSpeaking with Sky News, Mr Husic said the government’s current position to “import skills” was “non-sustainable in the long term”. \n\n'There is a discussion to be had about favouring permanent migration over temporary workers. Through this crisis we have seen temporary workers abanonded. They have been brought here in big numbers … and left to fend for themselves,” he said. \n\n'I think it is an important discussion to be had about the way in which migration is shaped into the long term and also taking into account the way the government has denied or held back opportuntiy for Australians from getting the skills they need to meet what employers want to see and they have just relied on the importation of skills instead of building them locally. ' Discussion 'can we be as xenophobic as ScoMo and Mr Potatohead?' 'No, but if we give it a crack we might win a few more votes from the voters who we all know to be yokels and rubes' It will be hard to introduce sound & logical strategies in the face of globalist Bolshevism 'Internal tussle' over the obvious.

Govt dismisses $20bn call to support temporary visa holders | Sky News AustraliaPopulation Minister Alan Tudge has downplayed calls from Labor to provide support payments to temporary visa holders out of a job. \n\nMr Tudge said the government would not extend the JobKeeper and JobSeeker benefits to the group because it would cost the budget bottom line an additional $20 billion. \n\n“Our position is we reserve welfare and we reserve job keeper payment to Australians and permanent residents because we are deliberately prioritising them and we are maintaining that expectation that people who come into the country on a temporary basis are able to look after themselves and if they cannot, they are able to return home,” he said. \n\nHe also flagged forecasts show Australia will experience an 85 per cent reduction in the immigration intake in the 2020-21 financial year due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.\n No way!!!! Tax payers money is to help Australians in need. If visa holders can’t afford to stay here then go home so their families and their Countries to look after them. So let visitors who are stranded here starve? That's a good way to lose tourism Absolutely not !!!!!! We need to save our money for Australian citizens

Ms Keneally has recently written an op-ed in the Nine newspapers arguing that migration cannot remain at the same levels post-pandemic. Senator Keneally said Australia could be "harmed" by an influx of temporary workers when restrictions are eased. “The post-COVID-19 question we must ask now is this. “We must make sure that Australians get a fair go and a first go at jobs,” Senator Keneally wrote. According to the Federal Government some 300,000 temporary migrants, mostly international students, have left the country since the start of the pandemic. The statements have been criticised by some of those in the media and political left as well as her opponents.” She said governments run by both major parties had relied on high levels of migration to fuel economic growth — calling it a “lazy approach”. "I’m not quite sure what the Labor position is on migration," Mr Tudge told Sky News host Peta Credlin. However, in this instance, Mr Kenny said he will have to actually “defend” the Labor Senator following the criticism she has received on the issue even if it may be “hard to feel sorry for Keneally”.

"She said one thing but half the shadow cabinet is saying another thing". She argued that temporary foreign workers make up a higher proportion of the workforce than people realise. “Migrants could actually be more important in the post COVID-19 future, they already have been becoming important and they could become even more important,” she said. "She’s not across the detail and certainly has a very divided party on the issue," he said. Image: Getty Favourite .
