Australian Migrants and Their Experiences in the 20th Century
"Australia has not always been the lucky country for all its inhabitants in the twentieth century." - MIGRANTS
During the twentieth century, migrants have faced many hardships and difficulties while trying to reside in Australia. They have primarily dealt with issues such as the 'White Australia Policy', which prevented them from migrating to Australia as they wished, as well as causing previous coloured migrant inhabitants to be forcibly deported out of Australia, a place in which they considered as their home. Another result of the 'White Australia Policy' was racial discrimination, which affected many of the coloured migrant inhabitants of Australia. However, not everything has been a negative experience for the migrants of Australia. After the 'White Australia Policy' was abolished, migrants were welcomed into Australia, and seen in a different light as a national benefit, rather than a national threat. Australia has not always been the lucky country for dwelling migrants in the twentieth century, although at times, it has been a positive experience for the migrant inhabitants living in Australia.
