Why the focus on boat people?
This makes makes a mockery of the border protection focus on so called boat, Most of these almost over stayers traveled to Australia by air and the overwhelming majority have settled into Australian life, with little – if any – regard for our laws and responsibilities.
The department of immigration and border protection generally does not detain people if they co-operate and help work toward a resolution of their situation. The Australian Government established the Community Status Resolution Service (CSRS) to give people living or working unlawfully in Australia the chance to re-engage and resolve their immigration status.
Australian border protection forces have increased their efforts to reverse this for og illegal migration.
