Is This Really My Country?

"The High Court has upheld the Federal Government's right to detain failed asylum seekers indefinitely in a decision that has angered refugee supporters and opposition parties.

The court, in a 4-3 finding yesterday, ruled that unsuccessful asylum seekers who could not be removed to another country despite their wish to leave Australia could be held in immigration detention indefinitely.

It overruled an earlier Federal Court ruling that failed asylum seekers should not be detained indefinitely if no country could be found to take them."

apparently it is. idiots.
