Migrants should pass assimilation test to get permanent visa

In 2016-17 a total of 40,000 permanent visas were issued to people from sub-Saharan Africa, North Africa and the Middle East. We have issued 291,975 permanent visas to people from these regions in the past decade.

These regions have vastly different customs and practices to those in Australia, including the highest rates of polygamous unions in the world.

In these regions, it is common for a rich man to take an extra wife, but for each additional wife, a poor man must remain single.

Boko Haram and Islamic State, which require women to wear the burka, are able to sell their toxic brand of extremism to poor single men and then export terrorism around the world, even as Islamic State is being pushed out of Syria.

On August 17 last year, I wore a burka into the Senate to draw ­attention to the failed immigration policy and the inappropriate ­wearing of full-face coverings in public and our federal parliament. The burka puts the issues of extremism, gender equality and integration front and centre of the immigration debate.

I have long believed that full face coverings, such as the burqa, were oppressive, presented barriers to assimilation, disadvantaged women from finding employment, were causing issues inside our justice system, presented a clear security threat and has no place in modern Western society.Today the Government and opposition have confirmed they refuse to listen to the majority of people in Australia and ban full face coverings.When will our politicians listen to the people?#Auspol #OneNation #PaulineHanson #Burqa #Parliament

The burka is not a religious requirement and it is no secret I want to see it banned in public spaces where possible, but less well known is many Muslims agree with me.

In 2014 a British imam, Taj Hargey, from Oxford, campaigned for a British burka ban, describing the burka as a “tribal piece of cloth that is eagerly used by fundamentalist zealots”.

Australian Muslims are a diverse group, but a minority within that diverse group treat women as second-class citizens and live in closed communities where migrants have failed to integrate.

Only last week a Sydney Muslim preacher, Nassim Abdi from Auburn, condoned marital rape and said a woman who refused marital intimacy would be cursed.

The NSW Minister for Family and Community Services said the preacher was out of step with Australian values, which is but one example of a separate community created by failed immigration policy.

Our new Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, says it is 100 per cent wrong for men and women, in polygamous relationships to claim Centrelink benefits, but it seems he also refuses to enforce our laws and put an end to the welfare rort practice.

This is wrong because taxpayers are being forced to meet the financial needs of people who do not want to work and it takes money away from those in genuine need.

Instead of throwing in the towel, the government should be looking at solutions to this ­problem, because the government is increasingly giving permanent visas to people from countries where polygamy, child marriage, female genital mutilation, and gender inequality is common.

Of course here in Australia a man does not need to be rich or steal cows to get the bride price for an extra wife, he just needs to access Centrelink.

South Australian imam Mohammad Tawhidi recently told me of a polygamous man with four wives and 11 children who had managed to pay off more than one home while living exclusively on Centrelink benefits.

Pauline Hanson speaks with Imam Tawhidi about Muslim issues facing Australia

Imam Tawhidi has been an outspoken Muslim leader over problems the world faces with radical Islam.He took the time out to visit me in Brisbane and have a very open and frank discussion about One Nation policies on Islam, how Australia can prevent radicals being granted access to our shores and how to keep our nation safe.It's a long interview, but you will learn a very surprising fact on where Australia's biggest mosque is.#Auspol #OneNation #PaulineHanson #Imam #Tawhidi #Australia #Islam #Brisbane

The imam observed Centrelink is the new mosque because Muslims could go to Centrelink rather than the mosque when they were in financial need.

It is time we assess whether ­applicants, including those under the humanitarian program, are likely to assimilate and work ­because once a permanent visa is granted that person only needs to get 12 questions right out of 20 in a multiple choice test to gain ­citizenship.

Large-scale legal immigration is driving more than 60 per cent of our population growth and will change our culture, but we can do better at selecting immigrants by acknowledging that the customs and practices in the country of origin are unlikely to be given up just because individuals have migrated to Australia.

The Immigration Debate Cannot Be Silenced | Pauline Hanson Speech

Labor and the Greens are scared to debate immigration because they know their political future depends on it.That is why Labor and the Greens teamed up to prevent me from debating my bill to give you a say on Australia's immigration numbers.So today I took the opportunity to speak out, not just about my bill to give everyday Aussies a say on immigration but ALSO on my bill to strengthen Australian citizenships by requiring much stronger English language tests and much longer waiting times for citizenships.When they try and shut you down, speak out twice as loud!

The number of children treated for injuries from female genital mutilation is horrifying and the problems are lifelong for them and costly for us in terms of the care they need. The fact is taxpayers are meeting these additional costs when too many Australians are unable to afford dental care and general medical costs.

Last year the Australian Medical Association reported on the incidence of female genital mutila­tion.

It found the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne was treating between 600 and 700 women annually, and that is just one hospital in Australia. On that basis, we could expect tens of thousands of women to have been treated or are being treated for female genital mutilation.

All I ask is that before we grant a permanent visa there should be a finding that the individual has a reasonable prospect of integrating socially and economically into Australia.

    It”s important that people that come to this country learn to assimilate. Assimilation is key to functioning within our society. Assimilation is important for the health of the USA.

    The sad fact is that integration doesn’t happen anymore with migrants.

    Firstly government policy no longer requires them to. It encourages the exact opposite under multiculturalism.

    Secondly is technology.
    Historically it took months to travel from country to country. Once in the new country, communication with relatives and hence with the old culture was far and few between through snail mail.
    Migrants had no choice but to learn the language and customs of the new country and interact with the natives.
    Nowadays people can visit the old country whenever they like. Mobile phones, internet and social media mean migrants are in constant contact with their old culture and have no need to interact with the locals or to learn the local customs. Hence they don’t assimilate.

    In short, unless migrants are required to (or in rare cases, those who really want to), integration will no longer take place as it used to in the past. This is why mass migration is unviable in today’s age.

    I am an Asian migrant who have learned to love and appreciate this country that has given me many benefits. Not to say that everything is perfect at all levels. Nothing and nowhere would there be perfection. However, what Australia has given and shared with those who came or migrated here, who later became citizens or residents, are not only
    valid and acceptable reasons for the native and pioneer Australians to ‘demand’ loyalty and integration into what has always been the core of Australian culture and values, but that these are important issues necessary for the peaceful and successful advancement of the Australian society. For there can be no progress when Australians as a whole are divided and radically different in their attitudes, practices and beliefs. There can only be ONE NATION under the banner of freedom and laws set by the government for its people. ONE FLAG, ONE NATION (Undivided).

    There is totally nothing wrong, insulting or demeaning in those concessions asked by the pioneers of this great country to be required from those that seek to enter and partake of an Australian nationality.

    I totally agree with all the comments I have read herein so far. Give and take the good feedback and some insults that I would say could not be helped, coming from angry and frustrated Australians. As they haven’t said, “Enough is enough!”

    I never initially, as a new migrant years before, understood completely the angst of Pauline Hanson’s stand until many years later on as I became schooled and enmeshed into the defining culture of Australian society, and later on gaining my Australian citizenship. Without prejudice to other migrants, I totally support and agree with Pauline Hanson’s realistic understanding of what Australia and being an Australian is, and what it truly should mean to every person calling himself an Australian or a true blue Aussie.


    Australia is now my home. Who doesn’t want to protect their homes from possible invaders, false iintruders, or even from home grown attackers? Unless you don’t care or cannot be bothered….so why be here or be an Australian? Isn’t that a fair question to put forward?

    I agree totally with saving the Australia I have always known respected, embraced and LOVED. We had a safe, profitable way of life others dream of.
    Yet people have now come here to change and take over everything this great country holds.
    Those that scream the loudest, threaten legal condemnation, abuse the word racial rights with every comment Should not expect Australian citizens to want them to stay.
    What do they offer other than rudeness aggression and insults themselves

    I see everything Our laricanism, freedom of speech, and now country and people ibeing taken over, destroyed by multicultural misunderstanding, or just a pure lack of no intention of wanting to be Australian.
    Even others that have purchased its land companies and resources. Have done so with much going against supporting and giving back to Australia.
    This is worse than seeing those die in war to save us. At least we had pride, mateship and love
    Our men would always put women and children first
    witnessing boatloads of men with a terrified child under there arm not held by a loving father but what looked like a stranger. I would call for DNA testing.
    They called for even demanding rights to this country without contributing.
    Off sure processing was over generous and costly for our country, when we have our own living in streets needing shelter for them to demand more was disgusting
    Other countries would be jail cell
    No tv food, dry amenities. medical or worse shooting.

    Now we have let those who threaten our way of life and indeed our lives enter our legal system, our government office, media, hospitals, own our water, electricity, ports, mines, even our fuel
    stations. If that’s not a lost country and invasion what is it going to take to save
    Australia now.
    What’s left to save ?
