    Sincerely hope you thank god every day that you're family aren't being raped and murdered around you. But people like you rarely do.

    Of course you "deserve" what you get since you were born here.

    Everyone's entitled to their opinions wether people agree with them or not!

    I for one don't care who comes or who goes I know I I we're in their situation with children I would flee too.

    I know plenty of people who feel letting them in here is not the solution but trying to help resolve issues in their own country.

    I know people who simply say they should just stay away from our shores

    Just cause I don't agree doesn't mean they army allowed that opinion or that its any less valid then my own IYKWIM

    My only issue is that they are treated better than our own people here in Australia.

    Edit to clarify- when they are given clearance to be here.

    I have compassion for genuine asylum seekers. Please do not interpret this as me saying they deserve no help.

    So what you are saying is that you would turn your back on another human being that is in trouble?

    Can you explain how they are treated better?

    Article in the paper the other day about an asylum seeker couple in Dandenong who weren't allowed to work. They had a house but no money and nothing in it. She is 8 months pregnant. They sleep on the concrete floor.

    Fortunately, some far nicer people than some in this thread have donated items to them, like a pram. And food.

    Remind me how this is them being treated better than an Australian? I'm pretty sure you don't know ANY Australians in those conditions.

    And I'm sure if that couple could work they would, which is another big difference to loads of bludgers who choose to live on Centerlink instead (please be aware I am ONLY talking about genuine bludgers here - the small minority and we all know they exist. Certainly not suggesting that everyone who receives Centrelink payments are bludgers!!)

    And like I said about not caring who comes in or goes out if say for example I knew of someone needing help like in the story kw123 jut shared i would help and it wouldn't matter where they were born or what ethnicity they were. I'm by no means completely cold hearted and I will help anyone I can who is here I just won't go out if my way to help other get hereIYKWIM I Dunno makes sense in my head

    Ok so maybe I shouldn't have come across like all of them are treated better than Australians. I should've elaborated.

    Don't think it's fair that my comment be questioned as a joke.

    From what I have seen when I lived in NSW, they were being put up in houses, given money from the government to purchase things (given free stuff too) and receive ongoing government assistance through the Centrelink.

    Meanwhile there were families with children living out of their cars. Women in refuges escaping abuse etc. with nowhere to go.

    Please don't attack me for voicing my opinion and what I am aware of. It's really not fair and if I am misinformed then let me know without attacking me.

    Thanks.
