12,000 Syrian Refugees destined to live in Australia next year

The Social Services Minister, Christian Porter said,” many of the refugees would begin to arrive in December 2015, and that the program would "pick up speed" in January and February 2016.” He then commented that he was sure that the vast majority of Western Australians will make Syrian refugees very welcome when the main group comes, probably before Christmas.
