Upon import into Lightroom my memory card is automatically rejected (that's ok) and all my images are deleted from the card (not ok). How can I avoid the images being deleted automatically?

Lightroom should not do that, and so there is no way to enable or disable it. Check that you use 'Copy' (or 'Copy as DNG') when you import the images. AFAIK, the 'Move' and 'Add' options should not be available for a memory card, but if they are nevertheless and you use 'Move', then that's what will happen: the images will be moved, so deleted from the memory card.
