    Isnt the whole point of the pacific solution to remove certain rights that would be obtained if the illegal immigrants were held in Australia?

    Yes.
    Well maybe.
    But it doesn't absolve their custodians of any or all responsibility for their well-being.

    Bit of a stretch to say Australia has a duty of care to illegal immigrants in a foreign country.

    Not only that but how is Australia possibly a custodian?

    We took them prisoner and transported them to the concentration camps, which makes us their custodians in exactly the same way as we are the custodians of prisoners in mainland gaols; we can't abnegate our responsibility to look after them simply by paying somebody else to do it on our behalf and ignoring all evidence of our stooges' incompetence or worse.

    Well thats right. How quickly 'they' forget the example of extraordinary rendition by the US to 'dispose' of prisoners. The US is/was responsible for what happened. You can't wipe your responsibilities just because you 'export' a problem.

    concentration camps???

    were the prisoners in Auschwitz free to leave at any time?

    Very very average not to mention offensive to call them concentration camps.

    Other than the fact its completely wrong. Not only are those people free to leave but the govt offered them large amounts of cash to do so

    Utterly absurd to compare them to prisoners in a concentration camp.

    CANBERRA -- Around 30 asylum seekers on Manus Island have voluntarily returned to their home countries, or are in the process of doing so, after being offered payments of up to $US20,000 from the Australian Federal Government in recent weeks.

    Australia has offered large payments to asylum seekers in immigration detention facilities on Manus Island and Nauru since 2014
    , as incentives to return home and thus reduce numbers in those facilities. In 2016, it was reported this payment had been doubled to $20,000 as pressures increased on Manus, including the decision of the Papua New Guinea supreme court that detention on Manus was unconstitutional and that the centre must clos

    So the fact we sent them their has nothing to do with it then? Just because we give them a choice, stay & get brutalised or leave & take your chances elsewhere doesn't absolve our responsibility whilst in the hell holes we paid for & sent them to.

    It's almost like they have very good reasons not to want to return home.

    Its almost like you have never heard of the term economic migrant.

    FFS. Did Australia force them to get on a plane to malaysia/indonesia?

    Who sent them?

    yep. lots of promises from welfare seeker advocates and the alp that if they hang in, they will get to enjoy a life of tax payer funded bludging in Australia after the ALP/Greens alliance wins the election.

    I've heard it.

    It's principally used by people to justify the appalling treatment of human beings by the Australian government.

    People like you.

    Exactly; consider the refugee who died this week. A Rohingya, who the world acknowledges is suffering under a genocide. We lock him up, tell him he can stay on a remote island if he wants, then withdraw any medical care that might treat his epilepsy or developing depression (that Australia was in part responsible for). But sure, he was just looking for some of that sweet Centrelink cash.

    Who acknowledges it as genocide?
    You can't just invade a country and expect to keep expanding without any consequence in the future. The Rohingya claiming victim hood is a result of their own actions.

    Who acknowledges it? The UN, independent observers like Amnesty and Save the Children. But hey, they deserve it, right? Genocide is an appropriate response to the situation?

    Any serious and neutral organisations?

    Try not raping, killing and expanding your way through a country to begin with. It might not piss off your hosts.

    Convenient deflection from the refugee's appalling treatment, resulting in his suicide.

    How is this Australia's fault? He was given safety in a country then selfishly chose to end his life. He was safe. A true refugee would acknowledge this.

    Should we just ship all of these people here and let them do to our country what they have done to Myanmar?

    You are the one conveniently deflecting away from why this is actually happening my dear friend.

    Yes, the UN and Amnesty and Save the Children. All have more credibility than someone basically saying women and children dying brought it on themselves with a shrug of the shoulders.
