    Yes, I think that's a more helpful way to look at it. It does require us also to do some more thinking: if we are asking immigrants to assimilate, what exactly do we mean by that; how much of their culture would we have them abandon, which elements enrich our own; there are may sub-cultures in Australian society, which one/s is 'Australian' and who determines this? I agree. There are just too many people scared to discuss this.

    Like locking up innocent children indefinitely. If you are referring the USA then Obama should have changed the law - but he didn't. I think the parents should be held to account for sending their kids often ahead of themselves. This division in views really comes down to the side that want open boarders regardless of the cost (social and economic) and those who want a nation state (willing to uphold the law often distasteful and not without mistakes and unfairness to some innocent and genuine persons seeking safety).

    This definition is explaining racism. Temporarily banning people from an individual country is not the same as banning a race.

    I think that there is often confusion between what is often described as 'culture' and 'race'. Violence is violence no matter where it comes from and if there is a way to mitigate it then it should be explored. Its true to say that there are certain cultural practices amongst certain groups that do not sit well with Aussie values. This is cultural and not racist to say so. Certain bad behaviours can be become gradually 'normal' and 'accepted' if they are not stopped asap.

    I'm glad you think that's not funny. But Pell did not 'hide'. I will wait until his trial is over before condemning him.

    Yes, I think this proves politicians are dumb and produce stupid policy.

    Governments like that. I don't think any government likes to do that.

    Only if the person making that statement was so outrageously racist as to allege that all people coming from that country are forming gangs of violent youths because there is a gang of violent youths in this country made up of people from that country. I haven't heard anyone saying that all people coming from one particular place form gangs. I think that's misrepresenting/spinning what people have actually said.

    They only just manged to drag his ass away from papal care and into a court. Your comment doesn't mean anything constructive. But if its just meant to funny then you have a right to say that.

    The Justice System is much to weak. These youths would have been treated as adults in court but QL changed the law which now treats them as children. The result is more crime. These gangs laugh at the police and justice system.

    I am quite fearful that my fellow Aussies are suffering home invasions, car jackings, robberies and other crimes - no matter who is committing it. However, I have no fear in saying that the Government, courts and police need to be much stronger in fighting crime no matter where it is or the source of it. PC does not scare me saying what what I regard is the truth. Someone in a previous post suggested that immigration needs more funding to help people adjust to their new society - I agree with that. If that can not be achieved then lets cut immigration until we solve those issues.
