Asylum seeker facts

If I were elected to office …

I’d run extensive government advertising until everybody in Australia understood that less than 4% of asylum seekers in Australia arrive by boat, and that of those, the vast majority (>90%) are found to be genuine refugees. After the advertising campaign I’d cut off people’s access to shock jock radio and tabloid journalism until they could score 100% in a test that demonstrates their knowledge of these numbers.

Knowing the facts about asylum seekers. Always a good idea. Vote 1. Me.
