At first glance, this criticism is not surprising: That Australia, a nation of 23 million built by immigrants, is acting heartlessly toward those who want a better life would seem like the height of hypocrisy. It is true that boat people are confined to unnecessarily difficult conditions, and we need more transparency on their treatment. All that said, the hard truth is this: Deterrence against people-smuggling requires firmness — and even harshness. You don’t deter traffickers by being gentle and compassionate


ANOTHER WaPo article AGAINST illegal immigration?! Something's up; almost like the the illegal alien fan sites are trying to run away from that mess.
