we can't let the people smugglers/queue jumpers win
I think they shot down the NZ offer because that would be an admission they deserved to be resettled in the first place. It would also potentially send the wrong signal to the criminal smuggling networks that there is a path for their clients after all.
Yeah it is any easy sell for the people smugglers
'Come with us and if you survive the boat ride you can spend 3 to 10 years in a concentration camp and if you last that long you might be able to go to New Zealand'
I'm sure they're likely to be 100% honest when dealing with their clients.
What pay huge sums to get on a leaky boat then get sent to manus island for 5 - 6 years then maybe get sent to NZ
I can't see refugees lining up to get some of that action
If the people smugglers are telling their clients lies re get on the boat and it's all cool then really nothing we do will deter refugees if they believe the people smugglers
I daresay you're right, especially if the place they're leaving is a proper hellhole.
What was Ashley Schaeffer doing there?
