Asylum seekers in Australia - New approaches to onshore processing
Cabinet ministers have begun discussing whether to send asylum seekers to regional areas in need of workers.
Anyone who reads this blog (at least 5 people) will know I put a number of points to the PM recently on ways and means of managing onshore processing. Trawling through Poll Bludger this morning I stumbled across a comment that quotes Misha Schubert's piece in The Age, entitled 'Off the boat, into the bush'.
It seems these ideas are percolating around policy makers in the immigration area!
