However, the money that cost to settle down refugee and help them go though the winter is coming from our taxpayers. We may accept to pay for the first, second or third times.

At the same time, Australia government is facing a challenge with asylum seekers, refugee and the citizen in Australia. How to balance the relationship and methods should be used are fully introduced in the article.
Basing on the international law, asylum seekers came to Australia seeking for help and the Australian government should be able to protect their right. However, it seems the protection is not good enough which cause culture and economic issues in the process. Worrying about the religion conflict makes the Australian government so hard to step forward.
Asylum seekers and refugees come to Australia with their final hope to seek for protection. As a developed country, Australia should give more attention and more help to those homeless international help seekers and try our best to help them return or settle down at new home.
