Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull has rejected New Zealand’s offer
to resettle 150 refugees from Manus Island to New Zealand. This is because the
government fears it would create a backdoor entry into Australia. What do you
think LiveTribers? Was this a good decision or do you disagree? Let us know in

Soft government promises have not worked in the past
Makes no sense to me. I see it as a stunt to appease the far right. NZ is a
great place to be. They are whipping our butts in many areas. Very arrogant to
think anyone given refuge there would want to come to Australia.
Its the 21st century people. Do we live in a global community or is that just a
line spieled by totalitarian politicians trying to appear 'politically correct'?
Who is Malcom Turnbull or Jacinta Ardern to tell any person where they can or
cannot live? A person's geographical location of birth does not give a governing
body the right to dictate that person's terms of existence. Its a disgrace to
our species that people are still treated this way in this day and age.
Hang on, did I just hear right? Wasn't this a Golden Opportunity for some sort
of negotiation & our PM couldn't see the wood for the trees? Donald Trump is a
far better deal-maker! And did any of us get a say in the decision? Not only was
this a bad way to handle the situation, but I can't think of any good decisions
this guy has made & I fear he will be the one to vote for just because he makes
fewer bad decisions than the other guy!
Tonight Show Humanity and share this great land is something I don't understand
I am an indigenous Australian and I don't get the difference between what
Australia's history books call Settlers and today's immigrants except took part
in disgusting acts like genocide like rape like torture but we now accept them
and all descendants now how do we not accept people just want to survive yeah
there might be a bad egg or 2 or 10 I doubt it would compare to the evil that
that came with Captain Cook
600 Cowards who ran away from their countries leaving women, children and the
elderly unprotected. We don't want or need them here they are welfare hunting
self entitled scum. Genuine refugees would not act like them.
There is other ways our Prime Minister could have gone,get the refugees to sign
a legal document stating they agree to reside in New Zealand.
Yes Australia has enough homeless people and its about time they all came first
I love my country I would not leave Australia for any reason.
We just cannot help every refugee in the world and right now our own country is
in a "MESS" and most white australians are struggling from week to week so i
feel we need to sort out our own mess first.
NOT if they,who decide to go to NZ, sign a Legal Document,which prevents them to
enter Oz for any reason in the future. It's surprising,that the PM denied them
"permission"to lave Manus Isle,even though Oz has NO jurisdiction to do that as
it is actually PNG,who does, because that Isle is a PNG territory & not of Oz..
Furthermore, it is surprising,that the NZ PM asked the Ozzie PM for permission
to let those people leave for NZ.She should have asked the PNG PM to do so. She
still can do that,provided the Ozzie Feds stay out of that as they've said ad
nauseum in private & in public(on media,etc),that Oz is NOT responsible for
them,but PNG is responsible for their re-settlement.
