A Sudanese mother-of-six says there are 'too many laws' and not enough jobs in Australia - a mix she claims is driving Melbourne's crime wave.
Asha Awur, whose eldest son has been imprisoned for gang activity, says isolation and the inability to support themselves is driving men in her community to join gangs.
She claims migrants who come from African nations like Sudan have fled traumatic upbringings and struggle to assimilate immediately into Australian culture.
Part of the struggle, she says, is the sheer amount of laws in the country, which is 'very confusing' for troubled youths.
'We have all these laws, so it's just very confusing, and I feel sorry for the kids because they don't know how to deal with this,' she told A Current Affair.
