didn't the previous labor prime minister say he was going to do something about the Christmas Island detention centre?

Maybe it just didn't have a high enough priority.

Why does Australia keep subjecting these boat people and their children to such harsh and inhumane treatment?

Were the first convict settlers ever treated as badly?

Shame on us.

Yes I agree, mandatory detention should stop, immediately.

Mandatory repatriation to the place of claimed origan should start immediately, if not sooner.

No one should ever be let into Australia, under any condition, who canít prove who they are.

I am sick of Oz being taken for a fool, & even sicker of those people who want to make us an even easier target for those want to take advantage of our welfare system

Here we go again! Another bleeding heart writing a 'report' that Aus should abandon detention for 'illegals'.

With all the real human suffering in places like Africa, China, Burma, and many others, it is obvious they have very little to do if the spemd time on our alleged failures. If they want to attack us for human rights abuses, then how about the little girls that suffer FGM here and the forced marriages, also the rapes carried out by Muslim men on their former wives that have been divorced under our laws.

For a barrister, one would think that she would understand that it is illegal to enter Aus without a valid visa and that the sole reason we can detain the boat people is because they are 'illegal entrants'

So much for human rights, they should have a look at the boats these people arrive on, shorly thats not good for human rights. At least in detention they are safe.

Banjo, Catherine Branson is not just a lawyer--she is a QC and the head of the Human Rights Commission. She knows what she is talking about. It is you who is wrong, and who has been impervious to correction for a long time. It is time to apologise.

and for the 3rd year in a row...the 'SO CALLED' "Human Rights" commission (actually left wing socialist parasite/opportunist/bottom feeder amoeba's)

What they say means absolutely zero. We know what their 'open borders' policy is.. not news to anyone who gets out... so.. I consign the 'Human Rights'/communist idiots to the human scrap heap they deserve.

*poof*...done.
