The only reason to call for migrants to pass an Autralian Values test is to back handedly imply that our current crop of migrants would fail such a test. Racism is something that I think Australia will take a while to shake off. The dinasour of the white Australia policy has a long tail and it is still shaking vigourously. The one thing that makes our racism look even more ridiculous is that about every ten years or so we move to a new ethnic group to attack. Just before going into high school I remember reading "they're a wierd mob" (it was probably my first adult book) the stroy of an italian migrant. In High school I had an asain friend who was regularly told to "go home" and first hand how spitefull racism can be. Now it's people of middle eastern appearence. Next, who knows. As each new ethnic group moves hear they will struggle to settle in to our culture they will associate with people from their own culture and they will be ostracised by the rest of us. Yet a generation or two no one will be able to remember why this happened in the first place and we will have a deep appreciation of all that this new culture has brought to Australia even if it's as simple as some great new cuisnine and a batch of better soccer players.
So if you're new to Australia weclome
