    Me too.

    Hopefully they find a way to address the vaccine misconception.

    Some of our prisons are considered among the worst in the world, but neither party is rushing to do anything about it. :(

    People really do get consistently raped and murdered in the most horrific ways imaginable.

    America has a Western European development level with Eastern European level prisons.

    Australia also shares the spiteful curse of "English Colonial State With Bitter Racial Past Turned Diaspora Nation And Not Coping Well".

    Though normally Australian Islamophobia consists of turning back boats of refugees from the Middle East and shipping them to Nauru.

    Some of my friends who have a darker complexion have had bad experiences of racism long back in Australia so it's not a new phenomenon actually

    That's not islamophobic at all.

    There is certain criteria that needs to be met and questions that need answers in order to determine where asylum seekers are sent to. There is a whole visa application set up for refugees.

    We don't accept everyone and willy nilly yet we are one of the most multicultural countries in the world. I can speak for Sydney at the very least.

    But anyhow, there will be the occasional nut job ruining it for everyone.

    My experience in Sydney wasn't the friendliest, which I was a tad disappointed about. But there Was this one guy who was terribly excited upon finding out I was Canadian because he's a big Degrassi fan.

    Buuut to be fair my visit to Sydney came right after a couple days in San Francisco, which is now my favourite American city. o.o

    Thank goodness that his thick clothing pretty much saved his life.
    Hopefully this awful incident doesn't scare him into quitting.

    Oh cool they unbanned you so you could come in here and defend their horrific concentration camps where little kids attempt suicide.

    Do you want to live in agonizing legal limbo on a shitty island nation full of PTSD experiences: Check Yes or No.

    We don't accept everyone and willy nilly yet we are one of the most multicultural countries in the world. I can speak for Sydney at the very least.
    Australia is a country so racist and horrible toward immigrants or otherwise that it STILL looks worse than the US even with Trump in charge.
    "We're so multicultural" screams man from place that jealously guards prejudices that even Americans gave up on 50 years ago like Mediterranean racism.

    But anyhow, there will be the occasional nut job ruining it for everyone.


    Some random nutjob set up the Nauru policy. Darn lone wolves!

    Tomi Lahren, that up and coming young conservative pundit who appeared on the Daily Show, just got suspended for voicing her pro-choice views on The View.

    http://thehill.com/media/325081-the-...rs-controversy

    lol

    Here is a young conservative with a pretty big and growing audience expressing a progressive view that stands against the traditional politics of her predecessors. How do they respond? Of course by freaking out and putting her in timeout. I can't tell if they're idiots or just don't care.

    They are not concentration camps, hinting towards how much you know about the matter, you're probably thinking
    "Concentration camp! Hitler! Hitler!"

    Actually if you read the article no one is held in detention on Nauru as opposed to other places. They're free to go around anywhere in the community.

    I'll have you first know I work in immigration and customs, how dare you attack people I work with. The people that I have met in my career always work hard to protect our borders and admit people that pass our vetting regardless of race. Do you want to remove the vetting Mr Monkey?

    The article also mentions how the traumatised parents caring for the babies was an issue;
    "It's effectively neglect when you have a very depressed mother who can't engage and bond with her baby. That baby may well suffer deleopmentally, fail to develop sppech, fail to develop physically, and , in fact, fail to thrive, despite an adequate diet, because of that emotional deprivation".

    They have seen this is a problem and they are looking at individual cases as opposed to a blanket approach.. But then again the Australian facilities aren't any better.

    Why does it always come back to race with you, it has nothing to do with race and islamophobia when processing people coming on a boat or plane and the reasons are;

    1) Not every refugee is muslim
    2) If someone coming seeking to immigrate here, normally people would have to go through a lot of paperwork, possibly interviews and other screening methods, these other people which are processed do not, and that’s the simple fact.

    What could take years for a grant into Australia, and I apologize for being anecdotal but it took my Syrian born, Iraq residing friend 7 years to be approved to come here properly after being denied many times, whereas these refugees are on average admitted in about 1 year and a quarter, which is pretty damn good getting the advantage over others.

    What people should be arguing for is a better facility and not just screaming out "racist" like an idiot every time. It's not like these people are starved and executed by a German army chief when they try to resist, which you seem to think

    Tell me Mr Monkey, what is your plan on processing people you don't know that might possibly be trying to shortcut the legal process of immigration to Australia? Or people that plan to come here for no good?

    Cause I guarantee there are ones that come here for no good or illegally.
