Illegal Immigrants, people entering Australia without permission. These people come from places like Indonesia by boat. They don't have a visa or anything that allows them to stay in Australia legit. People smugglers put them on a boat destined for Australia.

At our ocean borders they are taken off the boats by our Navy. What is the point of them coming here? They are not legitimate Australian citizens so why should they be allowed to stay?

They are escaping from war which is understandable but they should wait for our Defence Forces to sort out their problems before they think about coming over here.

I believe that each refugee arrival should be processed on their merit. Australia should be doing more to help the citizens of conflict especially as we have a need to along side other countries when the conflict has no connection to Australia.

It is all meta language though isn't illegal immigrant nice label change since September!! (sneer)

I agree that not all should be allowed citizenship but I do not "Turn the boats back" an extension of one more word " Stop the Boats"

Warning not an Abbott fan, not a Coalition fan. May the better debtor win.

Most "illegal" immigrants arrive on planes and choose to stay over their visa limit. Australia has a healthy or more a healthier economy at the moment and is attractive to places like Ireland and UK. The point I think the opponent was trying to make was the high numbers of want to be immigrants are coming from the east. Yes they should be screened yes it should be screened on grounds of adaptability to our western culture. No they should not be able to practice their religious laws here women are equal and have rights and we do not practice poly marriages. They are free to practice any religion so long as their human rights are observed. Leaders in these new communities should be leading and promoting assimilation. Apart from the Indigenous nations we are all immigrants and the bad old days the white policy are gone. Including stealing white children from the UK orphanages. Despicable! The only people who should be allowed to practice traditional law are the Indigenous people.

The Abbott solutions are failing and the party represent a bigoted view.

The way how the con starts the debate implies that as if most of refugees come from Indonesia. The fact as we see it here as Indonesians, Indonesia is having problems because waves of refugees should get through Indonesian water because their sheer interest on landing on Australia. Thus, we are suffering from peripheral effects of being Australian neighbors.

Btw, Indonesia is not in conflict whatsoever except a bit f separatism movement in Papua.
