That said, I also don't think it's feasible for our borders to be completely open. There needs to be some process to manage and process refugee immigration into this country.
I sincerely hope that one day soon this can be achieved without the risk to life and without the flagrant human rights abuses like detention of asylum seekers that currently occurs.

Also, from an article in the Age-
"But lawyer David Manne, who led the successful High Court challenge to the Labor government's controversial Malaysia Solution, said Mr Rudd's plan was a fundamental repudiation of Australia's commitment to protect refugees."All the independent evidence points to PNG being, sadly, very unsafe and also a place where there is widespread and pervasive violence, including against women, and serious and ongoing daily human rights abuse throughout the country," he told ABC TV."

Its not so much that I don't think, rather Australia is party to the geneva convention and has agreed to take asylum seekers and grant refugee status to people who meet the refugee requirements i.e face persecution in their home country.

So quite obviously, the only "problem" is the means of transport the asylum seekers are forced to adopt.
