Illegal Immigration Australia – UN Says Boat Turn-Backs ‘Don’t Work’, Because They Do

January 28, 2019 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Really?:  The UN refugee agency’s ­Indonesia chief, Thomas Vargas, told The Australian that turn-back policies such as those used by Australia’s Border Force to prevent boatloads of asylum-seekers reaching Australia “just don’t work”. This makes sense only when you understand the UN’s definition of “work” is to let boats come: “That’s […]

Illegal Immigration Australia – Yeah! It Won’t Be Abused. Right!

December 9, 2018 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Here in Australia, both the Labor Party and the Greens Party demand the law be changed so that any two doctors anywhere in Australia be allowed to order any illegal immigrant on Nauru be brought to Australia for assessment. Come in spinner: International doctors on Nauru demanded an Iranian asylum seeker […]

Illegal Immigration Australia – Who Let Them In? Is Our Refugee Program A Menace?

October 13, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Yes, refugees from war zones can be traumatised. But is it fair to take the punt with the safety of Australians and bring them in? Take this shocking case of Buai Jal: From the Administrative Appeals Tribunal: Mr Jal is a 22 year old citizen of South Sudan . Following a […]

Don’t Fly Like This So Called “Refugee” Did

September 17, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Refugee advocates in Australia must think we’re stupid. Either that, or there’s some airline we’d better avoid that takes passengers like “Amir” without a single document to identity them. The Newcastle Herald on what it calls in the headline our “torture” of asylum seekers here in Australia: Amir never had a […]

The Invasion Of Europe Continues

May 28, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ You’d think from the media coverage – and the relative lack of it – that Europe has virtually stopped the flood of illegal immigrants from the Third World. Not quite: So far this year, 194,611 migrants have arrived in Europe by sea, including 156,157 by the Aegean route, according to a […]

Illegal Immigration Australia – Never Mind The Boats. What Of The Tens Of Thousands Coming By Plane?

April 17, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ One of the advisors to former Prime Minister John Howard’s Government, Terry Barnes is absolutely right. Both sides of politics are near silent about the real challenge at Australia’s borders: From the Abbott and now Turnbull Government’s point of view and, indeed, for all successive governments since Bob Hawke’s time, the […]

Immigration Australia – Is Bringing Them Here Really The Cheapest And Safest Way To Help Refugees?

February 1, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ It’s one of the sweet fibs of the Left – that refugees make us richer. Here, for instance, is the ABC last year: As the Government announces it will take 12,000 additional refugees, it’s worth nothing that the data shows a generous intake is likely to be the most economically sound […]

Illegal Immigration Australia – Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull In Charge. People Smugglers Sense Opportunity

September 23, 2015 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Paul Toohey says people smugglers have been marketing the replacement of Tony Abbott as a business opportunity: A well-connected Iranian asylum-seeker stranded in Jakarta told News Corp he was approached by an Iranian smuggler a month ago, who told him the leadership would soon change and that the way to Australia […]

Illegal Immigration Australia – Why Won’t The Australian Labor Party Back The Border Protection That Even Europe Envies?

July 3, 2015 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ The Australian Labor Party still won’t back boat turn-backs, when even Europe now admires what Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has achieved: Senior European migration ­officials have judged Australia’s ­”robust and co-ordinated’’ communications strategy, underpinned by uncompromising action to stop asylum-seeker boats, a “more effective model’’ than those in place overseas. […]

Illegal Immigration Australia – Too Late. A Thousand Died While The Former Labor Government Dithered

June 29, 2015 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ The real question is not whether Labor will finally agree to towing back the boats. The question is really why Labor didn’t agree six years ago, when a 1200 lives could have been saved: The Australian Labor Party leader Bill Shorten is under increasing pressure from within senior NSW ranks of […]

Illegal Immigration Australia – No Boats For More Than Four Months

April 27, 2014 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Again, why couldn’t the former Australian Labor Government fix the mess it created?: NO people-smuggling venture had succeeded in landing asylum seekers on Australia for more than four months… Immigration Minister Scott Morrison said on Saturday that vigorous border protection activities was deterring illegal boat arrivals, even into the post-monsoon period […]

Illegal Immigration Australia – Eight Weeks, And No Boats

February 14, 2014 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ It is now eight weeks since the last boat of asylum seekers turned up. Why couldn’t Labor achieve this? Why did so many journalists claim the Abbott Government couldn’t? UPDATE The ABC continues to fret that our navy sailed into Indonesian waters to safely return boat people: CHRIS UHLMANN: The head […]

Illegal Immigration Australia – Under Abbott, 207 Boat People This November. Under Gillard, 2630 Boat People Last November

November 30, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Lots of media attacks again on Australia’s Immigration Minister Scott Morrison at the weekly press conference today on boat arrivals. What a dog’s breakfast he’s supposed to be making of the issue, according to the Media. Which is odd. This week’s arrivals: one boat with nine boat people. Total boat arrivals […]

Australian Politics – Only One Illegal Immigrant Boat In A Week

October 12, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ The Australian Labor Party now claims it also had Indonesia stopping lots of boats – but unaccountably, for that spin-mad former government, failed to tell us about it until now, 5 weeks after they comprehensively lost the Federal election: INDONESIAN police have disrupted 17 people-smuggling operations since the September 7 election, […]

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott Gets The Cooperation From Indonesia His Media Critics Dismissed

October 1, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ We were told – incorrectly – that Tony Abbott had offended the Indonesian government. We were told – incorrectly – that Indonesia would resist Tony Abbott’s policy to return boat people to Indonesia. We were told – incorrectly – that Tony Abbott was too clumsy for diplomacy with Indonesia. And now […]

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott Turns Back Two Boats, Just Like The Former Labor Government Wouldn’t

September 29, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ In an earlier Post from Andrew at this link, I gave some background on this illegal boat problem that Australia faces. When Tony Abbott was in  Opposition, he repeatedly stated that boats could and would be turned back to their ports of origin in Indonesia if he was to be elected. […]

There May Be Less To This Australian Illegal Immigration Standoff Than The Screams Suggest

September 27, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Background During the recent election campaign here in Australia, one of the main things Tony Abbott promised was that he would address the problem of illegal immigrants coming to Australia from Indonesia on decrepit, leaky, run down fishing boats, people who pay people smugglers huge amounts of money to transport them […]

Illegal Immigration Australia – Boat People Offered As Much In Free Goodies As They Paid To Come

February 17, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Currently, while the Summer weather is still good, leaky boats full of illegal immigrants are leaving Indonesia to undertake the sea journey to Australia, almost on a daily basis. So far this year, more than 500 people have arrived, and the processing centres where they are being housed prior to resettlement […]

Surely This Tells The Australian Labor Government That Prime Minister Julia Gillard Cannot Rule

October 15, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard this week showed the catastrophic judgment that should prove to even her closest Labor allies that their last hope is over. That hope was that the Prime Minister, once she got the carbon dioxide tax through Parliament, would settle things down for a while and gradually win […]
