Australian immigration and housing

This is an article from the Sydney Morning Herald. It talks about one Australian politician’s ideas for immigration. I don’t agree with his ideas because I think that Australia has plenty of space for more immigrants, so there’s no reason to lower the number of immigrants allowed in the country each year.

 

Some new vocabulary I found:

breakneck population growth = breakneck growth or breakneck speed refers to an extremely rapid increase

pegging immigration back = pegging back means reducing

net migration = [total number of people moving into the country] – [total number of people moving out of the country]
