Ok i looked in to this and you owe Australians an apology. They offered to move them to th e east lorengua refugee transit center. A new facility they built just for them. If they chose not to go Australia offered them 25000.00 per person if they returned to their home country. So next i looked at the east loengau refugee camp once admitted they are given mobile phones with 500 kina credits. A kina is .31 of us dollar. So they get 155.00 in us for phone service.

They want to leave the whole area and never come back. Exactly what the australian government wanted to achive. But then let em go, put tehm in a boat and bring them far, far wawy from australia. But don´t let them stay there without money, without any chance to leave. Instead of locking them up and paying tax money for that, use the tax money to bring them back into the civilisation.
The refugees on Manus don´t even have that chance, they have nothing anymore and were brought to a place they never wanted to be, most of them even never wanted to go to australia but were brought there by the circumstances!

What is their reason for coming all this way to Australia? Why not another country on their route? What is wrong with all the other countries along the way? Why not accept a free ticket back to their country of origin? Why not apply for Australian citizenship legally?
I'm sure if I turned up on the shores of another country with no legal documents I'd be detained as well. As a person, thinking, I'd have to accept those conditions.
We could go on all night mate but I'd say, put your hand up to accept unknowns into your household personally, care for them, nurture them, look after them but be ultimately responsible for their behaviour because if one turns out to be a killer you have to answer.
Same with policy. Let a person in and they cause havoc guess who takes the blame?
