Australia’s permanent migrant intake fell by over 21,000 to just 162,417 in 2017-18, according to the Department of Home Affairs. The decline has been attributed to more stringent vetting measures imposed by Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton, with the annual migrant intake falling to its lowest since 2007-08. Dutton says he wants Australia’s migrant intake to focus on quality and integrity, rather than on what he calls Labor’s "slavish drive for quantity".
