Just send them home already ffs

 

“Asylum seekers detained in Australia have reportedly gone on a rampage and burned down much of their immigration detention center in Sydney, in one of the most serious cases of such unrest.

A quarter of the 400 mostly Middle Eastern asylum seekers held at the Villawood Detention Center in the city's west took part in a night-long riot, DPA reported.

Detainees reportedly turned violent after their requests for asylum were turned down.

More than 6,000 people are being held in immigration detention centers in Australia, a coveted destination for asylum seekers from poor and war-torn countries like Afghanistan and Iraq seeking to start a new life.”
