The Issue exists all over Australia especially in the country as they would have to travel out to look for work. People respond to this issue in various ways, those who are lucky enough to have a job are working hard to provide for themselves and their families, those who are un-employed are struggling to find a way to make a living and are often forced to ask for help by the government or move to another place where they can provide a better working experience for themselves.

Many people are unaware of the real political happenings in Australia, They don't realise the reason in which we don't allow people into the country.Some people agree with the governments decision and action while others don't, This issue isn't major compared to the other things that can happen and that are happening in the world, but people throwing themselves and forcing there way into the country claiming to be asylum seekers is a pretty big issue that needs to be dealt and handled with.
