    So the ausies will be upset if these people are admitted as they arrived on boats and Americans have had enough.

    Meanwhile these people are in detention camps which nobody seems to have a problem with.

    Australia made an arbitrary decision to take control of these people and are looking for excuses to own them off.

    Sorry but that's the bottom line here.

    There is a problem with the people in the detention camps. The New guinea government has asked to close Manus Island. Those in detention camps want to leave .
    some have been there 3 years. Australia dos take as many refugees as the USA even in Obama time. They just will not take people who arrive illegally by boat. Unlike The USa we have no land border. So these refugees were pick up at sea. Should we have left them drown.

    If obama couldn't deal with it in the 2 to 3 years they have been there why should you expect trump to deal with it 2 to 3 weeks in his administration? Let's find a country who hasn't taken their fare share and ship them that way

    You tell the boat to go back.

    Dogtowner. When the boats arrived many were not sea worthy. In some cases the refugees sabotage them when they reach Australian waters. We had to send them back to Indonesia in our own boats. We often arrested the Indonesian crew or people smugglers or even took their boats. But this did not stop them until we refused to let them land in Australia.

    Exactly. It would never stop till you refused them so why didn't you just do that to begin with ?

    This is now the policy of both major political parties. It was not done in the past for several reasons> Like in Europe we underestimated the numbers ,It was also done for humanity reasons. The refugees we are trying to get rid of arrived in the period. Once gone we expect no more.
