Australia’s Immigration Policy: If You Come ‘the Wrong Way, You Will Never Get to Stay’

Australian-born political commentator Nick Adams joined Bill O’Reilly to share his country’s approach towards illegal immigration. Part of the policy includes the national Navy physically intercepting boats of immigrants trying to enter the country illegally and denying them the ability to land on Australian shores.

“It is controversial, but it is working,” he said, noting that not implementing such preventative measures was encouraging people to take the life-risking journey across the ocean. Additionally, “these people that were coming were seen as queue-jumpers, and it’s not fair to the genuine refugees,” Adams said.

For more information, Adams’s book can be found here (and includes a blurb from our own Jack Fowler).
