7. Asylum seekers are sent to a detention Centre all around Australia to be processed or they are sent back home to their country.

8. Asylum seekers do not break any Australian laws simply by arriving on boats or without authorization. Australian and international law make these allowances because it is not always safe or practicable for asylum seekers to obtain travel documents or travel through authorized channels. Refugees are, by definition, persons fleeing persecution and in most cases are being persecuted by their own government.
