Australia wants them as well, they are quite happy in regional areas which need people rather than the overcrowded cities. Expect seizures to begin around harvest time after all the work has been done and crops simply need bringing in. A decent first intake will show how big a success the program is and any problems with food production won't become apparent for at least a year as stocks will initially cover the drastic reduction in yields.

Expect 2-3 years for the wheels to really come off as the effects spread out into the wider economy and food reserves get depleted. Aid could come from Australia with crops grown by the farmers who were forced off their land and all paid for by the Americans. But that's all way too far in the future for the ANC to be worried.
