Australia and their tough immigration laws

Australia and their tough immigration laws

Tony Abbott, the Australian Prime Minister has commented about the refugee crisis in the Mediterranean. This is about the boat loads of refugees capsizing there killing many people.He has said that if the Eu wants to crack down on immigration or their refugee intake they must not let them step foot on their land.

Australia does the same. Their Navy turns back any boat that it does not want.

Should the UK adopt similar policies?

But they need other people to get them to where they want to go. Its them people like the ship or boat owners or the crew that should be taken out. In Australia them people can't make money on refugees so they don't try especially when the Australian navy turns the boats back each time.

Of course we should be tough on immigration.
What do we know about these people who are flooding the country?
Nothing!

The Aussies have it right on immigration IMHO.
Far too many are trying to get an easy life.
Immigration should be capped in all countries so there is a common understanding so that everyone knows they just cannot abuse the system.
