THE no-name supporter of refugees (July 14) failed to mention when people leave their own countries because of war or other life-threatening reasons and land in a peaceful, secure country, e.g. Indonesia, they lose refugee status.
To move to another country they become migrants and by opting to pay people smugglers they are illegal immigrants on their arrival at another country (e.g. Australia).
As such, they are attempting to queue jump over genuine refugees.
