Asylum deal a big joke

 I FIND it ridiculous for the prime minister to be proud of his agreement with Australia that will help reduce their illegal immigrants, but without first getting the views of PNG‚Äąpeople. 

Does he know that Australia’s actual reason is to stop people smuggling and that some of these immigrants are a threat? 

It is a joke that a developing country like PNG sees fit to provide the best solution for a developed country.

Where will they be resettled when the government does not own any land since most of it is owned by the people?

How do we claim to be a Christian country when we have Muslims in our land? 

Please do not bring outsiders’ problems into our country as we already have our own to worry about.
