Labor and the Greens: Putting foreign criminals first. Again.

So do we, fellas. That’s why you’re not getting in.

The left and refugee advocates would have us believe that the detainees in processing centres are all poor, trembling waifs, brutally mistreated by the heartless Australian government. Yet for years, regular reports – including from refugee advocates themselves – have shown that the detention centres are rife with rape, sexual assault and child abuse among inmates, and against staff.

On Manus Island, we learned that 190 men … some of whom were “involved” in drugs — would travel into the nearby village of Lorengau by bus each day [and] had threatened to rape the wives and children of locals.

Now we learn that

You find some of the worse kinds of human vermin in Australia’s onshore detention centres. There are evildoers who can pick up a phone and order a murder like you might order a pizza. There are organised crime villains. There are child-sex predators. There are motor­cycle gang outlaws who trade in drugs.

Naturally, they have the full support of Labor and the leftists in the minor parties.

[…] the Labor Party, the Greens and others have again attempted to stymie [Minister for Home Affairs, Peter] Dutton’s anti-crime crusade. And they may very well succeed.

If the left had their way, these bad hombres would be walking free in our communities in a heartbeat.

[…] new figures [show] 70 per cent of all detainees were given a “high risk” classification by the Federal Government.

There was chilling evidence at a Senate Estimates hearing in Parliament last May.

“One very concerning incident that we recently unearthed was the organisation of a contract killing by one ­detainee on another detainee in our system through the use of mobile phones,” an Australia Border Force commander said.

There are multiple instances of detainees using mobile phones to co-ordinate drug deals and communicate with the snivelling left protesters outside.

How dreadfully naive are the human rights campaigners who seek to have these thugs freed.

Naive? Or willfully blind?

It’s a shameful episode shows once again that Labor speaks with a forked tongue on immigration and border protection.

While the Howard government did the hard yards of stopping the people-smuggling trade to Australia, Labor did nothing but snipe from Opposition. Another boat, another policy failure! crowed Julia Gillard.

Yet, no sooner were Labor back in office than border protection policies were watered down, and the flood of boat arrivals resumed. A decade later, and Australia is still dealing with the legacy of yet another Labor disaster. When Tony Abbott stopped the boats, as he’d promised, Labor and the Greens did everything in their power to keep them coming.

Unpopular Labor leader Bill Shorten tries to give the impression that he favours strict border protection … His actions suggest otherwise. Labor supported a Greens bid in the Senate last December to allow detainees on Manus Island and Nauru to settle in New Zealand.

That would have provided “backdoor” access to Australia and Bill Shorten knows it.

One can only imagine what will happen should Bill’n’Cindy get the opportunity to collude on border protection policy.

Who is Lushington D. Brady?

Well, a pseudonym. Obviously.

But the name Lushington Dalrymple Brady has been chosen carefully. Not only for the sum of its overall mien of seedy gentility, reminiscent perhaps of a slightly disreputable gentlemen of letters, but also for its parts, each of which borrows from the name of a Vandemonian of more-or-less fame (or notoriety) who represents some admirable quality which will hopefully animate the persona of Lushington D. Brady.
