Give ru­ral peo­ple a say

The West Australian - - AGENDA -

Vot­ers should be asked what we want re­gard­ing im­mi­gra­tion. Many ru­ral ar­eas have enough prob­lems with unem­ploy­ment, elec­tric­ity fail­ures, wa­ter re­stric­tions, pub­lic vi­o­lence, and short­ages of med­i­cal and ed­u­ca­tion fa­cil­i­ties.

Who wants more pres­sure or trou­ble from dif­fer­ent and ag­gres­sive cul­tures now ob­vi­ous in the big cities?

Sen­a­tor Fraser An­ning is right that res­i­dents in the re­gions should be asked whether we want im­mi­gra­tion to in­crease, be re­duced or per­haps even to ex­clude cer­tain cul­tural groups.

World­wide, some cul­tures are prone to vi­o­lence, wel­fare abuse and forc­ing their will on Western na­tions, in­stead of peace­fully and pro­duc­tively ap­pre­ci­at­ing Aus­tralian ways and work­ing with us.

Un­car­ing, ill-founded or­ders from Can­berra are not ap­pre­ci­ated by ru­ral vot­ers or ratepay­ers.
