Here is the latest news from downunder about those migrants being detained on offshore islands as Australia is (rightly) trying to deter illegal boats from arriving on its shores.
But, once again, why is Australia’s immigration policy going to become a problem for towns in America where these mostly Muslim single men (that Australia won’t admit) will be set free.
Maybe each of these naive women marchers could take one home to live at her house (and pay all their expenses!).
SYDNEY (Reuters) – Hundreds of protesters marched through Sydney on Sunday to call for detainees, being held in controversial centers for asylum seekers on remote Pacific islands, to be allowed to stay in Australia as a resettlement deadline approaches.
Canberra’s hardline immigration policy requires asylum seekers intercepted at sea to be sent for processing to two remote Pacific locations – one on Papua New Guinea’s (PNG‘s) Manus Island and the other on the Micronesian island nation of Nauru. They are told they will never be settled in Australia.
The Manus center is to be closed on Oct. 31 when detainees who have had their refugee applications rejected will be resettled in PNG.
Protesters led by socialists and refugee advocates in Sydney said the detainees should be resettled in Australia.
The article goes on to discuss the Obama dumb deal (now Trump’s dumb deal).
For new readers who don’t know, Trump has said we will take up to 1,250 of Australia’s rejects. See my archive on the ‘Australia deal’ by clicking here.
