It remains unclear why Australia doesn’t want to accept the refugees that it has left offshore on the islands of Manus and Nauru, nor why the US should take them. The US has resettled within 41 years 4 times more refugees than Australia has in 71 years. The total of refugees resettled by the US in 3 years (2015-17) combined will be approximately 1/3rd of what Australia has resettled in 71 years.

    These so called refugees are already safe in Indonesia or Malaysia.
