Any boats seized with illegal immigrants in should be seized and destroyed to stop re-use, people encouraging them to come over illegally should be prosecuted and jailed and that includes lieing devious politicians and do gooders.

Yet another person unable to understand the difference between immigrants and refugees. If they are able to demonstrate refugee status then they are able to stay.
Australia is signed up to the same UNHCR Convention on refugees as the UK and most other countries. It's not actually the case under that convention or EU law that a refugee has to claim asylum in the first safe country they reach although the country they do claim asylum in can seek to return them to a different safe country.
