as for the other bit - sure they have to be proven refugees to get a temporary protection visa - but I thought they enabled refugees to be moved out into the community quicker as they can be processed quicker (oh and they're a deterrent to the non-genuine refugees).
Noone here is saying that genuine refugees shouldn't be accepted into Australia.
But if you left your country because it was being destroyed, everything you own is gone, the country is in ruins from war, you have nothing there and there is no prospect for work, why should they be able to start fresh here and then be sent back home to nothing? I think it's wrong.
This is the disincentive.
I believe the figure is closer to 97% of all boat people are genuine refugees. the other just often can't be proven one way or another.
It is illegal for us to close our boarders to these people, so it shouldn't even be a debate.
