It is unsurprising that Australia would get beaten up about its sensible immigration policy by the UN, which has been hijacked by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). While the UN lambastes Australia over the supposed “abuse” of migrants, it entirely ignores the mass abuses and jihad attacks that many Muslim migrants have brought to Europe.
