Asylum seekers are the most marginalized and vulnerable people who have come from places of violence and horror. The Australian government then imprisons these innocent people for up to 5 years at a time. It is LEGAL for them to seek asylum without a visa. I am ashamed of our government and can not believe in this day and age we are allowing this gross miscarriage of justice. I see an apology to the 'imprisoned generation' in years to come for the atrocity's this government has imposed on these people. It doesn't make sense to imprison children and set them up for long term mental disabilities when in fact more then 90% are eventually seen as genuine refugees and resettled here. This is akin to war crimes, the conditions are horrendous. Lets stop this now!! Lets free these people who are imprisoned without charge and for longer then violent criminals.
