Its incomprehensible to me that people don't understand that its not as easy as people stepping off a plane and walking into stable jobs and homes whether skilled or not.

And it is incomprehensible to me that as a country we aren't even interested in trying to make it work for these people. We shove them in detention and treat them in humanely so they suffer ongoing and debilitating mental illnesses.
Many things about our refugee crisis are incomprehensible to me.

Not sure how you're not understanding what everyone else is saying. Fairly certain nobody has said they'll just hop on and off a plane and everything will be roses.

It's incomprehensible to me that people use these challenges to suggest it's something we can't do.

I have known some people who had this difficulty and decided not to pursue their profession here. English is not an easy language to learn if learning from scratch. 1,765 hours to learn English to good fluency-

There is no question that we can handle 20000. We took in 42000 in 1989 after Tiananmen Square, we have the capacity.
This is not about whether we can but about whether we want to.

Peoples general attitude needs to change, I just home from work tonight and was flicking through my Facebook feed, people's comments in general are pretty depressing, the general theme seems to be 'let's look after our own first' I think it IS looking after our own, our own flipping race.

Look I think we are actually all arguing the same point here: we need to take more refugees,as many as we are able - and we recognise that we need to have various support systems in place in order to do so. We might not be able to cope with a sudden increase, but steady increase should be manageable with the right systems in place.
I wouldnt want to be the person who chooses who comes &who doesnt. I heard Julie Bishop speak earlier that Aus is working very closely with the UNHCR to resettle minority groups & women &children. Many Syrians want to stay close by & return home when conflict ceases. Those who don't are the minority groups who will continue to face persecution regardless, & need to be resettled.

I think Australia does it's fair share taking refugees. We can't help everyone nor can Australia cope with taking more.
