Should Australia let Asylum seekers into the country without penalty?

    Should Australia let Asylum seekers into the country without penalty?

    What would you suggest the Government do to stop the influx of Asylum seekers coming in by boat?

    It is time to stop looking at Asylum seekers in terms of government expenditure in the short term. It is time to realise that refugees and asylum seekers are in need of help and it is reprehensible for one with the means to provide that help to refuse to do so because they do not wish to part with their money.
    But if an argument must be tailored in terms of profit and loss it makes more sense in the long term to minimise the time spent in processing because the sooner an Asylum seeker or refugee is processed, they start working, start paying their own taxes and generally beome a contributing member of society.
    Essentially the money that is being spent on asylum seekers can be seen as an investment that if approached properly could be changed from a burden to the Australian people in the short term

    Send the Muslims and any other fraudulent "alleged refugees" entering our country with false, or no documentation, right back where they came from.  They pay Indonesia huge "fares" at the borders, hop on leaky boats, put out the SOS so we rescue them, and they're in.
    Send them back.  They don't even attempt to assimilate into Australian lifestyle and culture.
    The majority of these boat people are fit, healthy, and wealthy men, gathing forces against the Christian, Western World.  We have enough trouble here.  Let's not import any more.
    I am Christian.  I treat people as I like being treated.  I will not murder anyone who disagrees with me.
    Simply refuse admission to Australian waters totally.  Turn them around.
    They know our weaknesses better than we do.  They flaunt maritime laws to force the Australian Navy and Coast Watch to "rescue" the sinking ship which isn't sinking.  Enough is enough!!!
    Fit in or get out.  I don't want to be Muslim.  Do you?
