The Immigration Department's recent assessment of its own detention centre of Manus Island has found what we've known all along - the conditions in the Manus Island detention centre are inhumane.

Why? You want to provide an incentive to brink women and children on the journey?

Actually it looks a bit better than the migrant hostel we lived in when we first arrived in Australia.
The difference is that we could leave whenever we wanted to look for work or for recreation, to look for other accommodation and so forth. These people are detained and that's a big difference. All the difference between happy and miserable.

There are two things that are important here. Firstly, the people claiming refugee are arriving without documentation- as they are instructed to by the people smugglers- so their idenities cannot be established easily and many have been found to be either a security risk or economic country 'shoppers' who come to take advantage of Australia's overly generous welfare system. Secondly, Australia's current government has caused a great deal of chaos by dismantling the previous government's plan that had stopped the deadly floatilla of leaky boats and has lined the pockets of callous smugglers who don't care whether their clients live or die. There is a lot more to this sad situation than meets the eye, and a lot of the problems that are depicted on Manus Island are greatly exaggerated in order to force the hand of immigration and customs officials.
