It is not racial profiling it is religious profiling

Let’s call a spade a spade. When you propose to ask immigrants questions about whether or not it is okay to beat their wives and arrange for female genital mutilation to be performed on their daughters you are not proposing racial profiling. What you are proposing is religious profiling.

Racially profiling is wrong because no one can choose their race. Profiling someone on the basis of their beliefs and values is acceptable. Human rights must come before religious rights if your religious beliefs and values impose on the human rights of others.

“Don’t Speak English, Bash Your Wife and Think Genital Mutilation is Acceptable – Get Back On a Plane”

…Lobby groups have labelled the new test ‘racial profiling,’ after the Immigration Department confirmed applicants would be quizzed on genital mutilation, forced marriage and organised crime.

…Price told the Studio Ten panel Australian citizenship is ‘one of the most valuable things in the world’.

‘After four years living here, if you can’t speak English and you think it’s acceptable to bash your wife and get involved in genital mutilation, I’m sorry, pack your suitcase, get on the plane and go back,’ he said.

…‘What everyone’s got to understand here is this is people that are already here and whether they can get a little blue passport’.

Fellow panelist Jessica Rowe then asked Price if the test would stop genital mutilation and child marriages altogether, after she suggested applicants might lie on the quiz.

‘No it’s not going to stop it, what it’s going to do is send them home,’ Price responded.

…lobby group The Settlement Council of Australia said the new citizenship test should remove a number of questions to avoid ‘racial profiling,

…‘To single out only certain crimes for inclusion appears to reveal the existence of racial profiling underlying these proposed changes,’ the SCA said in a submission to the Immigration Department.

By saying that questions about certain crimes will disadvantage people from a certain race the SCA are committing the very thought crime of racially profiling that they are accusing others of. They are confirming that certain crimes ARE likely to be committed by people of a certain race so they would be disadvantaged by the questions. What an own goal.

‘It is likely to send a strong message that the value of some migrants is lower than others’.

The value of some immigrants ARE lower than others. The whole point of a well-functioning immigration policy is to separate the wheat from the chaff and to protect our country. Simply by putting a stake in the ground and saying he would enforce the law and send illegal immigrants back President Trump almost overnight seriously reduced the number of illegal immigrants sneaking into America. Many also went back home to Mexico without any action required on behalf of the authorities. A tough immigration policy will deter low-value immigrants from trying to enter our countries.

Sample questions on the revamped test include: ‘can you strike your spouse?’, ‘does Australia’s principle of freedom of ­religion mean that in some situations it is permissible to force children to marry?’ according to the publication…

Immigration Minister Peter Dutton plans to introduce legislation to parliament this week that includes the values test and university-level English language requirements.
