This is the Most racist thing are we back in Negro day You should be embarrassed putting this on Am not a Muslim either

@4TH6SCXfrom Queensland  answered…2yrs

Australia should ban all immigration of Muslim people as they do not assimilate with the Multicultural and democratic way of life here in Australia. Since allowing Muslims into Australia, violence and in particular violence against females has increased substantially. Furthermore, the practice of the Muslim religion should also be banned here in Australia. All mosques should be turned into domestic violence shelters for women. All halal products should be banned also. Muslim only want to change Australia into the horrible country they left and remove the rights of Australians. They recruit the Aboriginal community to rise up against the rest of Australia.

Political correctness is killing the western world. We're so concerned with being called racists we bow to someone calling us silly names. There needs to be a massive injection of common sense and prudency to expidite processes as well as support in place once refugees are processed to stem the flow of problems.

Seriously this is being discussed. How about we also stop all Christians in case they are affiliated with the KKK. Yes lets discriminate against Muslim immigrants because all terror plots in Aus haven't been from home grown terrorists. NO as Australians we cannot and should not discriminate, normal screening is ok.

Why does this question keep turning up in every election survey? I am growing tired of this question. I don't see how any muslim person should be any more suspicious than any other person coming into Australia. In a hypothetical response Japan has a criminal organisation called Yakusa. Organised crime gangs exist beyond religion. Japan itself does not have muslims.

@4SZJHPDfrom Queensland  answered…2yrs

No, banning someone based on their religion is racist and un-Australian. However, we do need better screening processes and more extensive background checks.

Terrorists? we have had no terrorist attacks here. The threat is greatly exaggerated, it's a Government scare campaign.

@4VV9XR3from Queensland  answered…2yrs

No, but we must screen them carefully and we should take asylum seekers on a triage basis so that those most at risk from attack in refugee camps and of persecution (such as homosexuals, atheists and apostates, Christians, Kurds and Yazidis and Ahmaddiya Muslims are settled first and Sunni and Shia Muslims last unless they can prove a commitment to Australian values. We should not take any immigrants that force female family members to wear head-coverings or that agree with child-marriage or that agree with 'honour' violence or the persecution of others (be they atheist, *** homosexual or members of other sects).

@4WR94CVfrom Western Australia  answered…2yrs

That is a racist policy. Yes there is concern at the moment about radical Islamics, however it was once radical Christians and other faiths. Processes for refugee status should be the same, no matter the religion or culture.

A one year moratorium on all immigration from groups identified as being a 'cultural assimilation risk'

@4ZMCRHGLiberalfrom New South Wales  answered…2yrs

We should add a question to the immigration test "Are you a terrorist" "Do you like beer and bacon?" "Do you have a beard?" If the answers go yes, no ,yes then we should reconsider letting them in....

@4TMZLTPfrom Victoria  answered…2yrs

Whilst I agree that banning is unconstitutional, I believe that Muslims are as much of a problem as Roman Catholics were and still are.

@4ZJ9F37Greenfrom New South Wales  answered…2yrs

This is so racist to assume only Muslims are terrorists. They are victims of terrorism. Let them in.

No but we should be diligent in deciding who gets into the country

@942NC2X answered…2mos

They should go through thorough and extra checks, and be monitored. Be on a higher alet

@HippopiJ answered…2mos

No, but individuals who support Sharia law and indicate they want it implemented in Australia should not be allowed.

@93R3M8Y answered…3mos

No the govt should be able to develop screening tools to the same standard as any other country has achieved

@93HBJ5C answered…4mos

Wait till they have gone through background checks but also provide support

@93GJJHJ answered…4mos

I think to check their records first to determine if they're a threat or not. That will determine if they are banned from immigrating or not.

@93B23X4 answered…4mos

If you’re going to screen muslim people for the potential to partake in terrorist activity, then all migrants who are religious or non religious should be screened for potential threat to National safety.

@939KTRW answered…4mos

No, but with some kind of proof or background, people should be banned

@935KJDC answered…4mos

The applicant should be screened and, if they are cleared, should be allowed to immigrate to Australia.

@93599H6Labor answered…5mos

@9354VC9 answered…5mos

Should be able to do a proper screen of the person before they are allowed over

@93539QZ answered…5mos

@93538KKIndependent answered…5mos

A probationary period could be introduced to ensure that potential immigrants show that they support Australian values.

@9353898One Nation answered…5mos

We should not penalise the many because of a few. But screening should be done

@934ZXHVGreen answered…5mos

Don’t keep out anyone except those high risk individuals based on their own circumstances rather than country

@934Z5Q4 answered…5mos

No, but they should go through a rehabilitation and integration to society program to ensure they’re adapted to western life, gain education and are provided psychological support

@934YQRM answered…5mos

Australia needs to LOOK AFTER OUR OWN PEOPLE and take care of us. We have more homeless people by population to the size difference in area than America

@934X2MHLabor answered…5mos

No, anyone can be a terrorist. White, brown, black. Terrorists are not only Muslims! This is a racist comment.

@934TYBC answered…5mos

Any immigrant entering the country should be subject to the same security checks.

@934TDHB answered…5mos

No, but we should put immediate funding towards developing these screenings as to avoid long waiting periods at Papua New Guinea.

@934RKTJ answered…5mos

No, but if they have a criminal history they should not be allowed in
