Can we let more of these people in? At least they aren't full of sanctimonious moral vanity like your typical white middle class refugee "advocate."
You can't sail a boat to Mirrabooka, but if you could, you're unlikely to be welcome, especially if you sailed in through a back port.
Mirrabooka is home to a large population of African and Middle Eastern refugees. A selection of that demographic is jumping on the Tony Abbott ship because of a perception he will stop the boat people.
Tall and striking Gatwech Thoan, 28, proudly displayed a Stop Racism T-shirt. He came to Mirrabooka from Sudan via a refugee camp seven years ago. He lives with his sister and brother. While he supports migration, he said "we need to stop the boats, they are illegal".
Like many of the Sudanese immigrants, his opinion was carefully thought out. Many have an interesting sense of fair play and expressed dislike for Julia Gillard because of the way she displaced Kevin Rudd.
Lucky Lyttle, from Sierra Leone, spent seven years in a refugee camp in Ghana and is now married to Australian-born Serena.
"We're both voting for Tony," the couple said. However, they believe the country should let in more refugees. "We need people here, but we don't need them coming from the boats."
