I am staggered at how BOTH parties treat refugees/Asylum seekers.
Most people who attempt to come here by boat are found to be genuine asylum seekers. They are fleeing persecution in other words. There is NO such thing as an illegal asylum seeker.
There people should NEVER be put into detention which is gaol. This is simply persecuting the persecuted. It cannot be surprising there that THIS has occurred.
I have no problem in putting people into detention who are not genuine asylum seekers but the bi-partisan policy of putting genuine refugees into detention centres is a disgrace. It should be changed quickly
