The election’s main non-issue gets a mention

Here’s the story: “Refugees” on Nauru everywhere hope for border policy change.

Refugees on Nauru and Manus ­Island have told officials they are hoping a new government will be elected and tough border security policies overhauled, delivering them a pathway to resettle in ­Australia and New Zealand.

The story comes with this: Parent visa ‘could see 200,000 applications’.

More than 200,000 parents of overseas-born Australians may arrive under Labor’s generous temporary visa, putting pressure on future governments to allow them to stay for good, demographer Bob Birrell has warned.

I’ve always thought that entry into Australia should be similar to applying to be a student at a university where you don’t just show up and demand to be admitted.
