Australia is a country built by immigrants, so why does the issue of immigration so divide and antagonise 21st century Australians?
Stephen Sackur joined radio talk show host David Oldfield, who also co-founded the far-right One Nation party, to discuss whether fears of new waves of people trying to enter the country are founded.
