Tough im­mi­gra­tion vi­tal to avoid Brexit anx­i­ety

Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL -

SYDNEY—Tough bor­der pro­tec­tion and asy­lum­seeker poli­cies are crit­i­cal to pre­serve mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism, Aus­tralian Prime Min­is­ter Mal­colm Turn­bull said Thurs­day, point­ing to Bri­tain’s vote to exit the EU be­cause of “anx­i­ety over im­mi­gra­tion”.

Turn­bull, who is seek­ing re-elec­tion in na­tional polls on Satur­day, has been us­ing the fi­nan­cial and po­lit­i­cal chaos cre­ated by the Brexit vote last week to ar­gue for sta­ble gov­ern­ment and the re­turn to of­fice of his rul­ing con­ser­va­tive Lib­eral-Na­tional coali­tion.

Can­berra takes a hard line against asy­lum-seek­ers who reach Aus­tralia by boat, send­ing them to re­mote Pa­cific camps while oth­ers are sent back to their point of de­par­ture.—APP
