Strict Japanese immigration policy
Immigrants built the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and countries in South America. Both the majority and the minority are immigrants in these countries. Most people are immigrants there. I think that is why people in these countries are tolerant of different people and why they criticize discrimination toward foreigners in Japan and strict Japanese immigration policy.
Native people are very few in those countries because immigrants killed many of their ancestors. However, 96% of the Japanese population is native to Japan like Native Americans in the U.S. and Aborigines in Australia. The ancestors of modern Japanese people came to Japan in ancient times. I think that is why many Japanese think that Japan is a land for Japanese people and are not so critical of strict Japanese immigration polices.
I know that all countries should accept political refugees and I agree with the idea. I think that it is the responsibility of advanced countries. Also I know that all counties should not have to accept economic refugees. As I saw immigrants in the U.S., I understood that. Some of the immigrants who came to the U.S. for wealth and opportunity do not respect its cultural values – human rights, democracy and gender equality.
