First there's no legal queue. The facts Australians get wrong about asylum seekersTalking about refugees and asylum seekers in some circles can be a dubious endeavour. Words like “illegals” and “queue jumpers” are ricocheting back at you, and you’re entangled in an angry debate.
We found seven out of 10 people believe it is thanks to the propaganda of both sides of politics. They have demonised refugees to the extent that the smugglers seem to be no longer the main problem, although without them supplying the means, we would not have had deaths at sea or a so called refugee problem.
We should be very grateful that as Australians we have never been faced with choosing to flee our country to a country that deals out such harsh treatment to refugees.
