Refugee campaign

Tony Abbott has made asylum seekers a touchstone for the success or failure of his government. The government has staked its credibility on its efforts to “stop the boats”, sending hundreds of asylum seekers to offshore detention on Nauru and Manus Island, and stopping the grant of any new refugee visas until it can re-introduce Temporary Protection Visas in mid-2014. There seems no low to which Abbott and Immigration Minister Scott Morrison will not stoop.
