The Morrison Government has recommenced with online citizenship ceremonies to replace face to face ceremonies …
-in 2019-20 more than 204,800 became citizens
-60% more than the previous year
-more than 60,000 applicants gained citizenship virtually since March
-largely from India at 38,209; the UK at 25,011; China at 14,764; Philippines at 12,838; Pakistan at 8,821.
-Victoria with the most at 60,081; NSW at 58,833; Qld at 31,714; WA at 30,394; SA at 14,135
-the 2019-20 figure more than doubles that of 2018 at 80,649
–a further 140,000 who have an application pending
WHY has the government made reducing the citizenship backlog and cutting waiting times a priority?
IS there some benefit in this for the Morrison government?
TODAY, SATURDAY 25 JULY news report that immigration numbers are the lowest since 1917; and that this has the biggest influence on the rise of house prices!
That must be a first!
This backs the rusted-on view that such increases are inherently good and necessary but like the ‘trickle down’ economy … it is a myth!
*In the Feds economic forecast according to ABC news this morning their assumptions include an opening of our Border in January 2021!!
–despite predictions of a third and fourth wave of the CoronaVirus!
-and HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT at 19.7% prior to the Pandemic; with 1 MILLION AUSTRALIANS for which there is no job!
Looks like further proof that the Liberals are so rusted-on to the GROWTH MANTRA of migration and trickle down economics!
So much for sustainability and a greener economy, and any progressive policies.
WHY is it that no media outlet or MP has mentioned this opening of our Border in January 2021 until now? We first heard of it this morning!
Are they so devious along with the support of a compliant media … and with their obsession about returning to normal … it ain’t happening for a long time … if ever!
They don’t like what we are seeing … their business model is haemorrhaging; they have a conga line of developers, University V-Cs, tourism and airline lobbyists, car sale dealers, even high fashion magazine publishers and retailers into them 24/7 ..
