australia's yearly intake until recently for around a decade has been more than that.

The numbers from this website show much lower (not more than 20,000 in any given year since 1982). Where are you getting your data?


Note that there is a distinction between refugees (the third column) and total immigration (the second column). Even total immigration never tops 200,000 per year.

Too bad they ship refugees off to Nauru and Papua New Guinea where they live in "processing centres".


Too bad the refugees didn't apply for asylum in any number of stable countries they passed through first.
