      I don't think anyone packs up the fam, leaves their country of birth, signs up for a dangerous boat journey to a place they're not even sure will do anything for them just for funsies. I don't know how our society has become so greedy we just turn a blind eye to people who are not criminals but simply need our help. But I guess the people sitting at home all day smoking crack need my tax money more, because they were born here. NOTHING MAKES SENSE.

      Australia's asylum policies are inhumane, unjust and, in some aspects, illegal. We must do better.

      * While every refugee's story is different and their anguish personal, they all share a common thread of uncommon courage – the courage not only to survive, but to persevere and rebuild their shattered lives. ~ Antonio Guterres, U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees

      * "...in the midst of migrants in search of a better life there are people in need of protection: refugees and asylum-seekers, women and children victims of trafficking...Many move simply to avoid dying of hunger. When leaving is not an option but a necessity, this is more than poverty."

      ~ Antonio Guterres
