asylum seekers not in the water either
Somehow Immigration Minister Ruddock just can't get it right. We now learn that the boatload of asylum seekers on Christmas island did reach the Australian mainland. Previously the minister had claimed they were intercepted offshore. First we had the children in the water. Now we've got the asylum seekers in the water. But for the Senate we'd probably have the Australian migration zone coterminous with the precincts of the parliament in Canberra.
