    A lot of this has, however, originated from racist views. If you really examine most people who are anti-asylum seekers and look at the language they use, a lot is at least boardering on the racist. Yes it fine to look at the problem of speeding up applications etc... but a lot of people start banging on about 'them and us' and 'our country' and all that. We tend to forget that we are obliged, rightly, to give asylum to those who seek it. I get the feeling that most who complain seem to think we should close all borders and not let any asylum seeker in, even if they come for a good reason.

    the Government is not obliged to give asylum to those who seek it but to those who need it. And look up the word "racist" in the dictionary. I think you'll find it says :

    "n : a person with a prejudiced belief that one race is superior to others [syn: {racialist}]"

    And so it would appear that you are incorrect.

    see the difficult thing is that if we put them in housing, the poor people will complain and if they are put into camps , human rights activists would have a filed day.the "you're in, you're out" policy might well work but then the right to justice or to appeal against decisions is denyed to the asylums.
