About immigration

The example of the founding of Israel on the land occupied by Palestinians in 1947 shows that the right of communities to control who can and who cannot come into their land is an essential right for their wellbeing. However, this right has been taken away from many groups as well as the Palestinians, particularly in Anglophone countries such as Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States. The results have been disastrous for the already less privileged – higher housing costs and lower wages, overcrowding, greater congestion on roads, higher costs to build infrastructure. In Australia, for example, the East West Link is to cost Victorians a staggering $14 billion for a mere 18 kilometeres of road as one example.

Obviously, each member of the community loses as result of population growth.
