I read news.com.au pretty much every day. So I kinda know a 'little' about the refugee issue over there. They won't even let them in the country, they put them on a couple of Islands. So, I think the whole hysteria about this today is ridiculous. But then I got curious - how many people do they have over there. And if this is correct - wow Australia.
"1262 People in detention on Nauru (390) and Manus Island, Papua New Guinea (872). Source: DIBP." Source.
I love ya Australia- but that is sort of a dick move. And we are supposed to be apologizing to you?
Update - This appears to be true. From news.com.au -
"Mr Obama agreed to allow 1250 refugees from Manus Island and Nauru to be permanently settled in the US, an arrangement Mr Trump has slammed as a “dumb deal”."
It's one thing to take "some" refugees. It's quite another to take ALL of your refugees!
