Whether it’s illegal or legal, most of the countries have a lot of strict and inhuman rules regarding that area. Only few countries understand the positive effects of having immigrants and Australia is one of them.

Last reason why immigration is important is because of human capital. And human capital is not always judged by the labor it provides but also the skills , culture and different perspective that it brings which is important for a country to grow because it provides scope for new innovation and change. Australian government maintains good immigration policies and cultures possibilities to achieve all this.
Nevertheless, it is also crucial that immigrants that arrive in Australia adapt and thrive in the environment. Every lifestyle has positive and negative aspects to it and it is important that people with good and strong ethics, values and integrity are accepted. The relationship between a country and immigrant is a two way street and for an immigrant to get the best life they also have to embrace the identity of the country of they live in; in this case Australia.
