What don’t ‘refugee advocates’ get about democratic process?

Do we want to be governed by democratic process or activists on Twitter? That’s the choice staring us in the face right now.

The Biloela Tamil asylum-seeker family have been found not to be refugees by the courts, but the mob want us to believe that this was an unsuspecting family ripped from their beds under the cover of darkness.

At the same time, we learn today that the boats are beginning to return.

Priya and her husband Nadesalingam and their Australian-born children Kopika and Tharunicaa are now being held on Christmas Island.

The youngest daughter of the family has been given a reprieve against deportation from Australian until Wednesday. Yet, the mob wants us to believe that our evil government are on a mission to split the family apart.

It’s almost as if the mob wants the family separated if only so it gives them yet another chance to condemn the Morrison government.

On Friday, the home affairs minister Peter Dutton told the Nine Network, “I would like the family to accept that they are not refugees, they’re not owed protection by our country.”

Yet the mob is screeching, “Dutton is a monster” (actually, they’re shouting “Potato is a monster” but hey ho).

Someone wrote, “If two little girls, born here, can be exiled because their relatives were born overseas then what’s stopping Morrison’s cruel mind from finding ways to exile you? Your family? Your friends?”

Clearly fear-mongering found the steroids.

The same pack of witches who went after Alan Jones has blamed him for this family’s current situation. “His actions in the years leading up to now have resulted in this outrageous deportation, and witches don’t buy his hypocritical, obscene attempts to backtrack on this now…” they posted.

The facts remain: this deportation has been years in the making.

They have had their refugee status rejected seven times.

This mother and father were warned prior to having children that they wouldn’t be allowed to stay.

They chose to have children anyway – and they chose to let them begin their lives here without security.

They may well be good, hardworking people but they haven’t followed the immigration process.

We have to accept that there is a process when it comes to receiving refugee status.

‘Let them stay’ is not a successful immigration strategy.

If the government caves in to pressure, they’ve learned nothing from the Medevac mess and allowed activists to torch process.

Be warned: this angry mob won’t stop until we have no border policy at all. Open borders are their ultimate end game.
