Living With The Enemy

Immigration
Season 1 Episode 3 SBS September 17, 2014

When Abraham arrived in Australia he knew two words in English, 'yes' and 'no', and he consistently confused the two of them. He is now the Slam Poet Champion of Victoria and recently came third in the national titles. He is also about to have his second book published and perform at the Glastonbury festival. However, he still can't get a job, is subjected to daily racism. Nick is the founder of a fledgling political party who says allowing Africans like Abraham into Australia is asking for trouble. He believes they can't assimilate, are a welfare drain on the economy and have nothing to contribute to a society built on Anglo-Celtic foundations.
