    Default Did you know 9 out of 10 immigrants come here as boat people?

    Apparently only 3 to 4 out of 10 immigrants come through the proper channels, whilst 9 out of 10 are coming 'illegally' on boats. That was the 'facts' according to Liberal MP Scott Morrison who is Shadow Minister for Immigration and Citizenship on A Current Affair tonight.....................

    Seriously what hope is there!!!


    Edit - It was pointed out to me that those figures were actually 3 to 4 out of refugees who arrive via plane are given approval and 9 out of 10 who arrive on boats are given approval. Still don't have faith that the Libs have the right answer on this issue

    Okay... Was going to reply with my usual 'seeking asylum is not illegal' rant but re read your post.

    Seriously, what? Though I am not surprised... ACA is hardly news.

    And that fellow needs to learn to count. I truly hate politics.

    Lol, I though I was missing something at first due to the late hour. Then realised it did come from a politician after all!
