Our first mistake was to allow them or their families into Australia. Our second would be to let them come back again:
 

, amid reports about 70 per cent of Australians fighting with the rebels are known to counter-terrorism authorities.


In what would be the first known suicide attack by an Australian,

counter-terrorism officials in Canberra were yesterday investigating

reports a man by the name of “Abu Asma” died following a car-bomb attack

in the eastern Syrian city of Deir al-Zor…


A senior counter-terrorism official said about 80 Australian nationals

were believed to be fighting or involved in on-the-ground organisational

roles. About 20 per cent of those were believed to be fighting with the

al-Nusra Front, the al-Qa’ida-linked wing of the Syrian opposition.


A properly maintained immigration program should leave us better off and
more secure. Ours seems to have left us too exposed to extremists.

The virtual 'open door' to anyone with money getting on a boat to illegally enter Australia, is over.  

 

Although I would like to see the new government open up to more genuine refugee places with 'Temporary Visas' like Howard did for the Kosovo refugees. This policy saw 1000's of Kosovo refugees flown to Australia and looked after until the war ended and it was safe for them to return home.
