  • It would be fun and nice

    We are a great country - cant you see so yeah that's why i think that we should let all the refugees in the entire world into our country. Also why not , they are human to see lets all just help our fellow humans over here and let them have a life.

  • Australia persistently asserts themselves as a multicultural environment ... So show it!

    I'm in Year 9 and I have an exposition to write about "Should Australia welcome Asylum Seekers". Even though I'm unable to include my personal views in the writing task, I'm able to express my opinions here and clarify repetitive ideas on previous comments. It is not the asylum seekers' fault that Australia has a high percentage of homelessness. It is the government's fault for not equally dividing their economic support for the homelessness (not providing enough jobs etc). The government is also doing a poor job in providing a safe and peaceful place for the asylum seekers to resort to. Seriously, detention centres on Christmas Island for example. They are treated inhumanely with many of the people there committing suicide because they have no hope in living anymore. Even though they have a roof over their heads, they don't get money from begging on the streets. They experience great famine and are starved everyday, aren't provided with a public education, unable to financially support themselves and their families (which they want to) and are persistently worrying and praying for a safe haven and for their families and friends who don't have a chance of living a life without prejudice. They come here for a better living environment. 99.99% of asylum seekers wish to be accepted by the Australian government to financially support themselves and their families, give their children a chance to learn and escape the constant terror of being attacked. But for the 0.01% of people who have nefarious intentions, Australia should have stricter implications such as have security scans. I despise how some comments state "terrorist attacks". Why are they targeting only a specific culture, the Muslim culture. I guess they are all brainwashed by Pauline Hanson and think all Muslim people have the same morals and values. THEY DON'T! My sister once had a muslim pre-school teacher who was one of the nicest people I've ever met. So I'm going to repeat this cliche statement because it is really important, "Don't judge a book by it's cover." Asians as well. What did we do? Most of them came here to escape the deadly Vietnam War and as you can see now, they have developed an Asian community in Cabramatta where they welcome all people from disparate cultures to learn and participate in their traditions. The "boat people" as some people call them all come here for one reason, to live in a country where they feel safe and are able to make Australia a more diverse and merry place! :)

  • We must stand together for the sake of humanity, and help each other out.

    The state of this world is not so good. We are facing a crisis. There people suffering povert, hunger, war and much more. As human beings we must help each other and save our world, as well deserve the same rights as a human being. By accepting asylum seekers we can make a change in this world. Asylum seekers need our help!

  • If we were asylum seekers, what would we want to be treated like?

    Australia has plenty of space (and a small city like Shang Hai in China has even more people than us) and we are not letting people who are went in REAL WAR OR CONFLICT in. They are having much worse lives than us and we couldn’t just help them? Is this not nonesence? We wouldn’t want to be shut out of a country just because the government wants to keep space, etc.

  • You have two hands for a reason. One to help yourself, and the other to help those in need.

    Could you seriously imagine running away from your home because of its state, running away from everything you've ever had, your friends, family and money. Spending every last coin on a boat to come to Australia, a country which we claim to be "Accepting of all", just to be rejected and be sent back to a detention centre. DO you know what the difference between a detention centre and a prison is? A prison stops bad people from doing bad things. A detention centre? A detention centre stops good people from doing good things. Think about it.

  • They are human, and it's illegal NOT to let them in

    The legal issues have already been mentioned above. Though there is nothing that pisses my off more then somebody saying we should take care of our own. Australia has been challenged with taking in 3 percent of the worlds Asylum seeker population. Smaller countries like Germany have far exceeded the number of PEOPLE they promised to take in, while you could count ours on one hand. LITERALLY

  • You would do the same.

    These people cross oceans to only meet boats that turn them back to the place they were running from. Australia has an obligation to help people who can not help themselves. 'Arguments' that people put forward along the lines of "Why can't they fly to Australia legally", "Stay in the country you were born in," are plain ignorant.
    People forget how fortunate they are to live in 1st world countries, and take such luxury for granted. Refugees come from war-torn countries, or countries exploding with unemployment rates, or lack of housing. Some refugees leave because they are not recognized as citizens in their country, and therefore don't have fair human rights!
    Just take a damn look at Zaatari Refugee Camp in Jordan; there is over 80 000 people waiting for a place to go, waiting for a change. As an Australian, I highly support the acceptance of asylum seekers. If you were in their situation, you would try to do the exact same thing... To flee.

  • Harison glades# write?

    Australia has the ability to do so Australia faces a stable economic and political environment, and its government should extend aid to these asylum seekers as it can be viewed as a moral obligation to simply offer help to those who seek help from you when you can do so, moreover, asylum seekers don't take up a lot of resources from Australia

  • Australians Come First

    Why should we take in boat people when a huge percentage of our own people are homeless? Who's building houses and buying food for homeless people in Australia? Not the government, that's for damn sure. People are talking about it being the law for us to accept refugees and asylum seekers... Wheres the law that says help one another?

  • Look after Aussies first.

    I feel that before we accept 'boat people', we should look after our own citizens. The amount of money spent on immigrant processing and off-shore detention is appalling, especially when you consider the amount of cost-cutting the Government is doing in the health and education sectors. I don't consider myself a racist person, I just believe that it is more important to look after Australia first.

  • They are Leeches

    Who cares if there is war in their country they can go die and stay in their country the government is wasting their money on these filthy Leeches. Also they have a big chance a big chance to be a terrorist. Do not even get at me with that " what if that was you huh?" I would die in my country i dont care. They have to stay in their damn countries those filthy n**gers.

  • High percentage of homelessness in Australia

    First of all in Australia 49 out of every 10,000 people are homeless. First the Australia government should look after the homeless people rather than accepting more people from other countries and giving them support. Where is the money coming fro ?, tax payers. They are taking your tax to make other live in a better condition than you. Would you like to be in a better condition when you are working and giving tax to the government instead they are giving your money to strangers. Give that tax money to homeless people so they can rise be in a better state to what they are now.

  • Economy and stuff

    The asylum seekers come in. They don't know the language, they don't know the laws, they don't have houses, cars, jobs or anything. The government needs to pay for these fees, that is why Australia is in debt guys. And most importantly, asylum seekers aren't legal. Are you going to let a random stranger that came from war and stuff into ur house just because they look like they need help? NOOOOOOOOO!!! They might be dangerous and no one knows if they are because they haven't been through any security checks and stuff. They might be bring in bombs and stuff for all I know.

  • Mobey money money $$$$$$$$

    We are already paying so much on our own citizens- why waste it on ppl who are probably just testing their luck on our country? With 1600 asylum seekers coming to Australia, how much are we going to pay for them- surely not less than a million. They are not refugees, they just some random ppl. So we are supposed to care for others, but not b4 ourselves.

  • NO most definitely not!!!!!!

    They will take away our money so they can learn the language and other essential skills to be able to live in Australia. The will make Australia a place where their is many terrorist attacks instead of one of the safest countries in the world. It is not fair that we should give up our land for them we were here first!!!!!!!
