Chris Kenny sums up:
He is talking about a large group of single men who are not allowed to work, have not had their identities or status confirmed, face an uncertain future, and are answerable to immigration authorities, and have been placed in university accommodation among the students.
It would seem obvious, courteous and prudent to notify the students, the local police and perhaps other support agencies.
As regular Cat readers will know I’m an open-borders type. But that doesn’t mean soft-on-crime. The biggest threat to large scale immigration – even illegal immigration – is the immigration lobby. I have no problem with non-citizens who break the law being deported. In some cases that means that breaking the law here will result in torture or execution when the law-breaker gets back home. All the more incentive not to be a rapist/murderer/serious criminal here in Australia.
I keep arguing that more immigration is good for the economy. Even so-called unskilled labour adds value. But I also recognise that community support is important and nobody wants to import criminals. Not anymore. I can think of no reason why Australia shouldn’t adopt a zero-tolerance approach to crime from migrants – especially violent crime.
