As unrest deepens, Hong Kongers eye homes abroad

With protests ongoing over the last few months in Hong Kong, there has been a surge in migration applications suggesting more locals are making plans to leave the region. Requests for police-record printouts, which are issued primarily for visa applications, jumped 54 per cent to 3,649 in August compared with last year. Malaysia, Australia and Taiwan have reported spikes in migration enquiries.

Same with brexit, the people who identify with the overlords should leave the country they don't want to be free in.

These are exactly the kind of people we want coming into America. Solicit visa and asylum applications and fast-track them.

It's a good idea for the protesters to leave, so long as their families leave with them. For certain the CCP has identified all of them. And any country that takes them in will be better off for it.

I am happy for the Australian government to extend visas to these people. But they shouldn't be looking at Melbourne to live and or Sydney for that matter. both cities a bursting at the seams, from population booms.
