I would like to post some information I received today as to how illegal immigrants into Australia are treated by our 'generous government',
compliments of the Australian taxpayer
This information was provided by a Barrister at Law, from NSW, Australia.
For privacy reasons I have excluded his personal details:
Anyone who believes the information to be incorrect is welcome to challenge.
the pension figures paid to australian pensioners listed here may be slightly higher as a small increase occured in March
"The information below should be read by everyone, whether you agree to its contents, or not !!!
NOW, LET ME SEE IF I'VE GOT THIS RIGHT....
If you cross the North Korean border illegally you get 12 years hard labor.
If you cross the Iranian border illegally you are detained indefinitely.
If you cross the Afghan border illegally, you get shot.
If you cross the Saudi Arabian border illegally you will be jailed.
If you cross the Chinese border illegally you may never be heard from again.
If you cross the Venezuelan border illegally you will be branded a spy and your fate will be sealed.
If you cross the Cuban border illegally you will be thrown into a political prison to rot.
IF YOU CROSS THE AUSTRALIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY, YOU GET:
* A JOB,
* AN INTERPRETER,
* FREE LEGAL AID,
* A DRIVERS LICENCE,
* A SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER,
* CREDIT CARDS,
* FREE EDUCATION,
* FREE HEALTH CARE,
* DOLLARS WORTH OF PUBLIC DOCUMENTS PRINTED IN YOUR LANGUAGE
* THE RIGHT TO CARRY YOUR COUNTRY'S FLAG WHILE YOU PROTEST…..THAT YOU DO NOT GET ENOUGH RESPECT.
Sensationalism? Then think about just this one [not so] small aspect...
The Australian Federal Government provides the following financial assistance:-
BENEFIT AUSTRALIAN AGED PENSIONER
Weekly allowance $253.00
Weekly Spouse allowance $56.00
Additional weekly hardship allowance $0.00
TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT $16,068.00
ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES LIVING IN AUSTRALIA
Weekly allowance $472.50
Weekly Spouse allowance $472.50
Additional weekly hardship allowance $145.00
TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT $56,680.00
If I were a refugee, why would I look for work? And the current Government is saying that 'elderly Australia' is going to put the country $100
billion into debt in the next few years?!
Please forward to all your contacts so that we can lobby not just for an increase in the aged pension and to put the welfare of Australian pensioners
first, but the welfare of refugees further down the list - well after our Defence men and women, our farmers and the average Aussie battler. After
all, the average pensioner alone has paid taxes and contributed to the growth of this country for the last 40 to 60 years; a Defence member
voluntarily endures hardship, prepared to give up their life to preserve the way of yours; and the farmer/battler who are the backbones of this
Country and Culture - never reaches for a handout but always willing to lend a hand...
When these people rarely, if ever, speak out they are shunned, ridiculed and dismissed by the Government and barely makes a headline in the news. When
refugees/immigrants speak out about repression and insensitivity to their culture in Australia, it gets widespread media coverage and quick resolution
by Government bodies.
*** I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE I HAD A FIRM GRASP ON THE SITUATION - HAVE A GOOD DAY (AT WORK)"
end of message.
I'd be interested to hear how other nations pay their illgal immegrants
