IT IS not my intention to engage in a slanging match with some person who does not have the courage to put their name to their letter of their opinion (CCA 14/07) regarding illegal immigrants.

When money becomes involved, as per the fee paid to people smugglers by these so-called refugees, the regulated system government has in place for genuine refugees falls apart.

I have no doubt that the conditions in refugee camps are terrible and one would not wish to stay for longer than necessary, but money talks, hence the fee to the people smugglers by those that can raise the dollars and break the ranks of the orderly process that should be followed.

That's when these people commit an illegal act and jump the queue.
