how is this a scam?
What a scam this is. Australia doesn't want immigrants where they simply buy property and get a free ride here from China. Immigration to Australia is not a commodity.Twice a year, one of Beijing's largest convention venues, perched on the same east-west thoroughfare as Tiananmen Square, holds a large-scale international property fair.
The drawcard, it seems, is more than property. One booth, which advertised property from all across the Australian east coast, prominently boasted: “Invest in property; speedy migration”.
Over at the Sunland Group's booth, a sign read: “Buy Australian real estate; free migration.”
how is this a scam?
It is a scam like the student visas scam until most of that was closed down a couple of years ago.
Why though? What's wrong with them coming to live here?
What do they have to prove in order to be eligible to live here?
Compulsory English classes?
Why? How? Assimilate to what?That they can assimilate?
Can't they just be themselves?
I highly doubt anyone would eat anything that belongs to you without your express permission.That they won't eat my pet dog?
I personally think it's pretty fucking stupid to move to a country where you don't speak the language. But then again, there are some pretty fucking stupid people in this world. But if you can speak the language, then I don't understand why you can't legally move to this country.
Asylum seekers, on the other hand, I would see as being a completely separate issue.
“You want, if possible—-and there is no more insane “if possible”—-to ABOLISH SUFFERING. And we? It really seems that WE would rather have it higher and worse than ever. Well-being as you understand it—-that is no goal, that seems to us an END, a state that soon makes man ridiculous and contemptible—-that makes his destruction DESIRABLE.”
— Nietzsche - “Beyond Good and Evil” - section 225
All these English language places (in Australia) that are full, I suppose the taxpayer is heavily subsidising (or even paying in full) for most of these? If they don't speak English well enough that they need to take classes here to learn it then they shouldn't have been allowed into the country on anything but a short term holiday visa (< 6 weeks).

Yet then consider how many unskilled Chinese & Indian & people from other developing countries moved here. That is where the real problem is.
