People smugglers will be held in NSW jails for the first time as Papua New Guinea joined East Timor yesterday to say no to Julia Gillard’s asylum seeker “solution”.
As for those people-smugglers now smuggled in to local prisons, a state government source reports:
“We’ve been told there’s 120 people smugglers, so many that they [immigration] have run out of room to hold them,” he said. “They’re going to be spread through Queensland and NSW but we’re going to get the bulk of them, starting with 40.
“It came as a bit of a surprise to everyone here. It’s a pretty funny way of doing business.”
