Our current generation is old and aging, not young.

Migrants bring fresh young skills and talent to be used to benefit Australia.

Side: No

Migrants can be old to. They can bring young skills - yes, talents - yes and they'll benefit the country - maybe.

Why do we want migrants to take our jobs anyway. We have plenty of children in school these days that want jobs, they have new talents, they have skills and they are here already. Why not teach these kids to better at there skills so they can have these jobs. Instead of introducing people from other countries, why don't we train our young.

Our young Australian talents can benefit ASustralia as well!

Migrants can be a great help to our country. Australia is not populated much so migrants can fill in vacancies of jobs that we find hard or that we do not want to do. They also bring a lot of other valuable things and ideas such as foods,drinks,inventions, ideas, clothes, sports, skills and a lot more. if we did not have enough migrants we will be far behind in everything. Australia can still accept migrants because it is not a highly populated nation.

Migrants are good for the country's economy and culture, hell, Australia was built on the backs of the first migrants who were sent over from the UK. Why should Australia accept far fewer migrants?

A migrant is someone that chooses to go to another country or place. They make there own dicision, they are not forced. (definition from a dictionary.)

The first fleet was about convicts going some place else because there wasn't any enough room in the prisons. A large majority were convicts who were forced. Then there were soldiers and comanders who were forced as well, because the convicts needed to be overseen and then a minimal amount of citizens chose to come to Australia for there own benefits.

A have to repeat that it was a large majority of convicts that came and they were forced.

So are we really built on the backs of migrants???

Your argument is flawed from the definition of the word "migrant". Nowhere can I find in a definition the words "forced" or "unforced". It has nothing to do with being forced or not. A migrant is simply someone who has moved to another country. Convicts are migrants, refugees are migrants, asylum seekers are migrants.

I think I should point out that there are at least two other debates on this site based on this same topic. Maybe, next time the competition comes around, you should all check first before creating you debate to make sure the topic isn't already there.

Australia is in need for immigrants. Nowaday all immigrants are skilled immigrants they bring skill! More doctors and teachers...more tax. They build up Australia's economy. Anyway the original Australians are Aborigins, so basically everyone's family was at one point an immigrant.

Side: No
