With the opposition immigration spokesperson Scott Morrison back in the media spurting doomsday predictions about Australia’s out of control population growth due to asylum seekers (find the article here), I feel it is important to try and quell these fears with some good old fashioned facts. I have posted this previously on facebook and twitter, but it keeps coming back to try and scare us into xenophobia and racist fear. I feel it is my duty to inform people of the truth so we can all have an informed opinion on the issue. I am all for people having their own opinions. I am very opposed to mis, ill, or uninformed opinions.
I have stolen this from my good friend Micaiah Sells Out who stole it from a friend of his, who got it from Crikey. Although, as I said, I have posted it previously so I’m not all bad.
This just helps us put things back in perspective.
