Australia takes the path of Trump!

Another jolt has come for immigrants but this time is from Australia.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has tightened the citizenship rules of Australia as the government plans to boost its flagship in the world of immigrants!

The Prime Minister says, “From now on, applicants will have to wait for four years before applying for citizenship instead of one year currently. And the applicants also need to prove their higher degree of proficiency in English and go through a citizenship test to prove their Australian Values to integrate into society!”

Two days before, the government announced a tightening of temporary skilled migration visas and claims employers were abusing the program. As of now, almost 1,00,000 foreign workers are working in Australia under the temporary skilled migration program.

“We must ensure that our citizenship program is conducted in our national interest,” Turnbull said in a statement.

“Membership of the Australian family is a privilege and should be granted to those who support our values, respect our laws and want to work hard by integrating and contributing to an even better Australia,” the Prime Minister said.
