Naughty question: Why do we assume that asylum seekers have a right to resettlement in a FIRST-WORLD country?

One of the great heroines of patriotic immigration reform is Ann Corcoran, whose blog titled Refugee Resettlement Watch relentlessly chronicles the follies and crookedness of America’s refugee policy.

Ann also covers other countries when there’s a point of general interest. The other day she had a post about Australia, which poses a very interesting question I’ve never heard posed before, what Winston Churchill would have called a naughty question.

Australia’s been plagued by illegal immigrants arriving by boat. The Australian government has taken a pretty stern line with these people, called “asylum seekers” in the mainstream media, but in the great majority just illegal economic migrants.

They’ve put them in camps on remote islands, that sort of thing…
