    Fair ? Was it fair of Indonesia to dump them on you ?
    They're the ones who need to pay a price. And if they don't want to then they should send them back.

    One politician has already said that Indonesia sends more boats if we do something they don't like. For example stop the export of live cattle. But the Indnesia government denies it sends the boats they are sent by people smugglers.

    12,000 Syrian refugees were given permanent protection visas in addition to Australia's existing humanitarian intake for 2015-16 of 13,750. Over 25,000 refugees were allowed to settle permanently in Australia, which is why so many others are still in detention camps, hoping to start a new life. Australia is sending a wrong message to potential economic migrants who are rushing to Australian shores. Refugees would stop coming in large numbers, if the refugee intake is reduced to only a few thousands per year.

    Indonesia's inability to deal with the criminal behavior of its citizens is not Australia's problem.

    It is our problem if the refugees come here dogtowner.
    Third Term the only way to control the numbers is if the Australian government choose them .
    Those who arrive illegally by boat are the problem.

    No. You need not accept them. That's the nature of illegal.
