More than 70 asylum seekers on Nauru have turned down offers to resettle in the United States after learning they would have to work rather than receive government handouts and welfare.

 

Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton told The Daily Telegraph, these people are not genuine refugees.

“Reports have come back to people on Nauru that it’s all a bit financially tight there because you have to get a job and because there’s no welfare there,” he said.

I for one, think Australia ought to adopt the Apostle Paul’s approach in 2 Thessalonians 3:10, “If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat.” He’ll soon find the motivation he needs.

Unending government charity only breeds this sort of freeloading mentality. There are already enough people in Australia who think like this. We don’t need to be importing any more.
