Immigrants must learn English in 18 months or lose benefits

Immigrants on Centrelink will have to learn English within 18 months or they will lose their benefits under radical new plan

    One Nation wants to strip welfare from immigrants who fail to learn English
    They'd have 18 months to learn Australia's national language to keep Centrelink
    Party's NSW leader Mark Latham said welfare had just created 'ethnic enclaves'

Immigrants who fail to learn English within 18 months could face losing their benefits under a radical new plan.

Pauline Hanson's One Nation party has released a new policy requiring new arrivals to develop their language skills if they want to keep their Centrelink unemployment benefits.

Failing to learn English within 18 months would see an immigrant deprived of $550 a fortnight in Newstart payments.

One Nation's News South Wales leader Mark Latham said immigrants who failed to learn English after 18 months needed to lose their welfare benefits to tackle 'ethnic enclaves'.

'Unless you have an incentive, people will continue down the current path which is a disaster for Australia,' he told Daily Mail Australia on Friday.

Across Australia, 820,000 people spoke little or no English, the 2016 Census showed.

'It's a startling insight into how divided and segregated our society's been,' Mr Latham said.

The former federal Labor leader, who represented an electorate in south-west Sydney for 11 years, said the problem of immigrants refusing to learn English had worsened during the past decade.

A blase attitude, "You can't pick on anyone who doesn't speak English, that's their right",' he said.

'It's not a right in Australia.

'It creates separatism. People don't have a common bond of citizenship, of belonging to the same society.'

Mr Latham said his area of outer Sydney had become more segregated.

'I've seen changes in western Sydney in the last 10 years that I never thought I'd see, and a lot of it is based around welfare dependency and non-English speaking ethnic enclaves,' he said.

'It's a product of low-skill migration, it's a product of certain ethnic groups that congregate in the ethnic enclaves.'

Mr Latham said 18 months was long enough to give someone to learn English.

'To get a job, it helps to speak English,' he said.

'To participate in community groups, lead a good social life, indeed it's essential to speak English.'

While he didn't directly link non-English speaking immigrants directly with terrorism, Mr Latham pointed out that Islamic radicalisation was more prominent in areas with lower levels of English and higher welfare dependency.

'If you look at the map of terrorism-related arrests in western Sydney, there is a correlation between ethnic enclaves and those locations,' he said.

One Nation's policy document, however, claimed it wasn't targeting Muslims, clarifying that Indian-Fijians of the Islamic faith had been 'good citizens' who 'worked and studied hard'.

'A major issue of public debate in NSW is the question of Islamic integration,' it said.

Brilliant idea

This will force men to allow their wives to learn English :ymapplause:

We should do the same in the UK because sadly, so many men treat their wives as lessor beings

The sad part is the people whose land it actually is, the indigenous aborigine peoples, do not have the same rights or receive the same allowances as Muslim newcomers X( X( X(
