I'll try a different tack. Not all Muslims practice the things you keep listing. To exclude them all would be a racist and non secular approach, which I thought you didn't like. How do you exclude the ones who do and not the ones who don't?
Do you exclude a two year old Anne Aly and her family just in case she grows up to do things we believe are unacceptable because she is part of a huge religion, some of the adherents of which do things we find unacceptable? Surely that is racist and or religious discrimination,. Surely you allow her and her family in, all things being equal, and use our existing laws to deal with the behaviour if it occurs?
I just wish you would admit that the approach you advocate is racist and non secular.
Sounds like I would be a lot easier if I would only just be put in a box and stay there!
What the exact answer is for immigration, down to its final, compromised detail - I wouldn't know. But I do know that burying our collective heads in the sand and comforting ourselves with 'well, at least we're not racist' - is not an answer either.
How do we exclude? A logical question, and logically, some must be excluded - otherwise logically, we argue for open borders, or close enough to it that it doesn't matter.
(If an Anne Aly was excluded early on, we could still welcome her when she was finally in a position to escape)
"Using our existing laws" - a great many examples of this now not working overseas - so many. We are the closest in AU to doing it *now* - as each day goes by, and if we hide inaction behind 'at least not being racist', then our chances slip away.
Ask rape victims in Germany if they were being sufficiently non-racist and secular.
