Bishops condemn political posturing on immigration

AUSTRALIA’S Catholic bishops have accused the country’s two major political parties of bowing to minority pressure by promising to reduce immigration if elected to lead the federal government later this month.

Bishop Joseph Grech of Sandhurst, the Australian Catholic Bishops’ Conference delegate for migrants and refugees, said both major parties were ignoring migrants’ “rich contributions” to Australian society.

“Australia is a country which, compared to most nations that welcome migrants, is underpopulated with a standard of living which would remain sustainable despite higher levels of immigration,” Bishop Grech said in his statement.
