Phillips, Janet

Asylum seekers and refugees: what are the facts?‘ Australia. Parliamentary Library Social Policy Section: Background Note (updated 11 February 2013)

Looks at differences between asylum seekers and refugees, whether asylum seekers are queue jumpers or illegals, how asylum seekers arrive, whether they bring disease, threaten security or are genuine refugees, whether they take all of Australia’s refugee places, receive higher benefits than Australians, whether they swamp us, and how our record in taking asylum seekers compares with other countries’.
