After Visiting the Immigration Museum: Should People Be Allowed To Immigrate To Australia?


Persuasive Writing

5/6J today we are concentrating on our persuasive writing and preparing for the NAPLAN testing. Yesterday we learnt so much at the Immigration Museum and saw many reasons why people immigrate to Australia and also reasons why people are stopped from immigrating to Australia.

Today, our intention will be to use our skills of persuasion to make links to our knowledge of Values and Identity. First, we will need to examine the topic and prepare arguments, examples and explanations to back up our thinking.

    Yes they should!! and plus we call it a free country but you also you don’t just come into Australia. Well exerpt for the convicts back in the 1800’s they had no choise! but now in the 2000’s you have Passports and contracts not pardons.
    I already know most of the stuff you guys have learnt!!

    Australia is a free country. I know that when my mum visited her family in the Philipines, my dad had to get her a Visa when she was traveling on an airoplane. I was lucky to have a chance to look at some Visa’a in the Imagration Mueseum. Did anyone else see them?

    Well I think that any culture could come to Australia unless they have a disease or drugs or so on. In Melbourne at the museum the interview was quite curious about the questions they asked and what was there answer. For example one of the questions are if they were in good health and the daughter was death so we got to deside if they could or couldn’t come to Australia. I had a question and it was what would happen if those people did come to Austalia?

    I think that other people should be aloud to immagrate because they should be able to have a better life for their children and wife’s and family. They should be amble to unless they are carrying drugs or diseases. To come into Australia they should be fit and healthy and have no crime records. But the MOST IMPORTANT thing is that they should have work skills so that they can get a job easier. They should also have enough money so they can buy a house and support their family before they get a job. In the interview in the museum the people we were interview were very suspicious because the wouldn’t look at the camera when they were asked questions and when we said no they truer to say that the didnt understand but they did. I would let someone on if the had all of the important qualities like skills inperticular and money wise so if the had enough money.

    If we were a multicultural country as we say we are, wouldn’t we allow people to immigrate?
    Most people immigrate just for the reason they want to leave the bad memories behind and they want to start a new life. But if we push them away and say no, how are we accepting? We aren’t. That’s the thing.

    If you are going to say something, then go by it. As the picture above states ‘Nine million people have migrated here since 1799, but countless other have tried but failed.’ Yes, millions of people from all around the country have come here, but imagined all the other families who have been pushed away. All the children who want a better life, INFACT need a better life. But we push them away. It’s wrong!

    We should, actually must allow people to immigrate into our country. It’s just plain cruel not to. Put yourself in the desperate families shoes and see how much they really need this. See how much they want this. See how much they are relying on it…

    I think it is a good idear to have meetings with the people who want to come to Australia because if they have a VERY terrible diseze then he moves to Australia, there is a 99+1% chance that people can catch it and so on! Also some people might be a crimanal and they lie to the govournment so they get into Australia! But I don’t think they wold have a chance of being succsessful!
