Do you believe Australia can justify their asylum seeker detention centers simply based on the fact that immigration is a touchy issue in their country?

  • Yes, detentions prevent problems that could shut the program down



    Australia detains asylum seekers to protect itself from
    fraudulent claims, and to prevent a public uproar over this sensitive issue. The
    detention period also allows health and security checks to be made. Such checks
    may prevent the spread of disease or disorder that could cause the public to
    demand a total halt to immigration. Thus preventive detention actually furthers
    the humanitarian purpose of admitting deserving asylum seekers to the safety
    of Australia.


  • Yes, Australia can justify their asylum seeker detention centers.

    I think that Australia can definitely justify their asylum seeker
    detention centers especially since the fact of immigration is such a
    touchy issue in their country. Australia is a sovereign country and they
    have the right to govern and deal with immigrant to how they see fit as
    long as their human rights are not violated.

  • No, you can't

    Putting asylum seekers in detention centres is absolutely disgusting and needs to be stopped. We are all human, no matter what happens. They are just trying to escape the grasp of war and death. How would yous feel if you where leaving Australia because of war, going to other countries to live a good life, but you weren't excepted into that countries because of you background, so they put you in a detention centre to live for the rest of your life...... That is no way to live, so why are we doing it to them?? It needs to stop, Real Australians Say Welcome

  • No, you can't justify this

    The human rights alone are justification enough to not allow them to do this. It doesn't matter how they view immigration, wrong is just wrong. The recent exposure of the conditions at these places is just awful. It needs to be stopped. Its things like this that make us, as a race,look like fools.

  • No, I do not.

    I think Australia's stance on immigration and their detention centers are frankly pretty disgusting. I like and know many Australians, and as an American who has seen Mexicans get the same mistreatment, I can tell you it is not the right way to go. They are people, not pieces of garbage.
