8. Don’t we take too many refugees?
According to Amnesty International our performance here is appalling. At a quota of 1,000 pa, apparently at a cost of $100m per annum, Australia takes twice as many per capita and Canada 6 times. So in order to better meet our ethical and moral aspirations we should lift this number. One way might be to adjust the skilled migrant category to award more points to refugees.
