THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT THE BOAT PEOPLE - (FROM A VERY RELIABLE AFP SOURCE) --------- We all have had the discussion of the boat people at some time or another. Most of us can't understand why the Australian Labor government continues to pay for these foreigners whilst hard working Australians continue to suffer the brunt of taxes, levies and tolls to help pay for the government's mis-spending. Well the time has come for the truth, I am asking everyone of you to spread this as far as you can and eventually it will end up with someone who might be able to do something about it. According to an Australian Federal Police (AFP) officer (who obviously will not be named), this is some of the facts you all need to be aware of.  Currently the AFP are not producing as many drug busts due to the millions of dollars of their budget being put into intercepting illegal boat people  When the boat sank last year off Christmas Island, the Australian authorities were throwing life jackets to the children and the adults were swimming to where the life jackets were, pushing the children under the water and taking the life jackets to save themselves  When the boat people arrive here, they have already printed out from the net their rights and have a list of welfare benefits that they demand from the Australian Government  Whilst in detention they tell the guards that they are here to serve them and the AFP have already investigated a number of assaults on detention staff resulting from them "not respecting" the detainees. So in other words when a guard doesn't respect or serve these illegal boat people to their satisfaction, they believe it's fine to backhand them to gain a little more respect  After spending around 6-9 months in detention, the illegal boat people have approximately $10 000 saved in welfare payments from the Australian Government. They then send the money home and arrange for the next family member to come out on a boat. So this means we are actually paying for the flood of illegal boat people through the welfare payments provided to them  The boat people are all given mobile phones and allowed to phone where ever in the world they please. The reported cost of the combined telephone bills for the first quarter of this year was $5 000 000, Yes, you read correctly, 5 million dollars, all care of us - the tax payer  Residents and the AFP on Christmas Island only have dial-up internet which we all know is impracticable in today's internet age. All detainees have broadband internet, care of the tax payer yet again These are all facts that simply can't be spoken about by those who know. Well the time has come Australia to say enough is enough. Please ensure that you spread this as far as you can.
