DAILYKENN.com -- Asylum seekers who attempt to reach Australia by boat are rejected.
That policy has deterred potential asylum seekers from taking to the high seas to reach the Island nation and, as such, has saved countless lives who would have otherwise been lost.
Immigration Minister Peter Dutton said: "Tomorrow (Friday) marks 600 days since the last successful people-smuggling venture to our country and the government's absolutely determined to make sure that it stays that way."
He added that 25 boats carrying 698 people had been turned back and "safely returned to their country of departure" since the policy was introduced.
Civil rights groups have criticised conditions at the camps, while doctors have said the detention of children in particular has left some struggling with mental health problems.
