What do candidates in #Griffithvotes think about immigration?

The Reduce Immigration team recently contacted each of the candidates in the Griffith by-election to seek their views on Australia’s immigration numbers.

We let them know that we advocate a reduction in Australia’s overall immigration intake and are not opposed to all immigration, but believe that high immigration adversely affects our environmental sustainability, social cohesion and cultural integrity. Then we invited them to respond to these questions:

  1. What are your views on immigration numbers?
  2. Will you help promote the “REDUCE IMMIGRATION” write-on campaign during the lead-up to the by-election?
  3. Do you have any comments, suggestions or requests relating to these matters?

Of the 11 candidates, we received no response from five and a mixture of unenlightening and guarded responses from the remaining six. To read the detail, click HERE.

It’s unfortunate that, this time around, voters in Griffith who are concerned about immigration don’t have any candidate to support – as far as we know! But all Griffith voters can use their ballot paper on 8 February 2014 to send the REDUCE IMMIGRATION message to Canberra on polling day.

Let us know if you find this survey report helpful.
