Australia mulls banning immigrants from biggest cities   

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) - Minister for Cities, Urban Infrastructure and Population Alan Tudge said on Oct. 9 that the Australian government wants to cut the number of immigrants moving to Sydney and Melbourne in a bid to reduce congestion in the country's two biggest cities.

Australia is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world, but has long had a high proportion of its population - currently 25 million people - living in cities. Around two in every five Australians live in Sydney or Melbourne alone.

The government is considering banning immigrants from settling in Sydney and Melbourne for five years after they arrive in the country, The Australian newspaper reported.

Tudge would not say how immigrants might be punished if they strayed from where they were supposed to live or whether they might be deported. "We haven't outlined all of the precise details just yet," he said.

The main driver of population growth in Sydney and Melbourne was overseas migration, with skilled migrants and refugees gravitating to those cities.
