On Immigration 移民について

Yesterday watching the news on TV that reported that Mr Abe would welcome immigrants hereafter, I said to myself that I was for immigrants coming into Japan. Soon my mom replied she was against that. I think that Mr Abe's proposal is so reasonable that Japan will keep its labor force from decreasing, while many Japanese also get worried that more immigrants will rob Japanese of their jobs.

The government, on the other hand, is struggling to have parents raise more children by introducing tax deduction or something, but it's not always easy for working couples to have more children. Immigrants, in contrast, can soon learn to speak its language and likely to work harder. My mom asked, "what if a Chinese newcomer robbed you of your job?" And I replied, "if my students like him or her better, I am happy to leave."
