Migration Institute of Australia statement regarding Sonia Kruger’s
18 Jul 2016
The Migration Institute of Australia is disappointed with Sonia Kruger’s comments this morning calling for a total ban on Muslim migrants to Australia.
Ms Kruger’s comments showed a complete lack of understanding of Australia’s immigration program, the contribution Muslims make to Australian society on a daily basis, the fact that there are Australian-born Muslims and the current security arrangements and checks already in place.
These security arrangements make sure whoever is granted a visa into Australia meets our security standards, no matter where they come from in the world, no matter what their religious beliefs are.
