'Long live immigration!' ???????????????

Long live immigration! wrote a friend

I would temper my enthusiasm for missionary opportunity and varied cuisine with some statistics.

From the last 200 prescription forms I dispensed, non-indigenees are 76%. One week I counted 50 different etnicities.

10.5% of forms were from people with low income or benefits. ( This % is low because most prescriptions are exempt from paying on age or other grounds)

Of these 21 forms all but one were from immigrants.

Most immigration throughout the ages has been motivated by economics. From the above count, IMO, it is the immigrants who benefit economically more than this host country.
