These people had papers and destroyed them prior to arriving in Australia. Why would they do that? If they had genuine claims to asylum wouldn't their documents assist them in proving their claims? Apparently not.
Perhaps their papers would have shown them to not be asylum seekers just people wanting a better life.
Anyone who wants a better life by working hard is ok by me. Let them in. BUT!!!! NO WELFARE FOR 10 YEARS, NO GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE WHATSOEVER, I would allow them a lower tax rate to compensate for exclusion from welfare. If that doesn't work for them let them go back home.
85% OF THESE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE ON WELFARE FIVE YEARS AFTER GETTING HERE. These people have no desire to make a better life for themselves. They want a better life paid for by other people - YOU and ME. Paying lazy bludgers to come here and sit on their arses is plain madness. Why would anyone think it's a good idea.
Every pensioner and working person in this country lives a poorer life so that these LAZY BASTARDS can sit here taking our hard earned money. IT IS REALLY DUMB.
We are creating an underclass of permanent welfare sinks who have no idea of hard work or personal responsibility. Their whole life is TAKE, TAKE, TAKE !!!
Cut the welfare, if they want to work GOOD. If they want to go home PAY THEIR AIRFARE and GOOD RIDDANCE to bad rubbish.
