Thanks to Australian New Nation for keeping us posted.
Here's boat number six and seven for 2010 -
Two asylum seeker (invader) boats intercepted
Two more boatloads of asylum seekers (invaders) that have arrived in Australian waters are part of a wave that must be curbed by the federal government, opposition immigration spokesman Scott Morrison says.
Since Friday, authorities have intercepted two unauthorised boats suspected to be carrying around 70 (actually it is 67) asylum seekers (invaders) off Western Australia's north coast.
HMAS Ararat intercepted a boat late on Friday afternoon near West Islet at Ashmore Reef believed to have 29 passengers (invaders) and four crew on board, a statement from Home Affairs Minister Brendan O'Connor said on Saturday..
Early on Saturday HMAS Bathurst intercepted a boat one nautical mile north of Christmas Island suspected to be carrying 38 passengers (invaders) and two crew.
The two groups will be taken to Christmas Island for processing.
Mr Morrison said the wave of boats attempting to arrive in Australia must be curbed, with 19 new boats arriving since the start of summer. (There were 13 boats in December and these are boat number six and seven for 2010 so that makes 20 boats not 19.)
"This is an extraordinary increase," Mr Morrison told AAP.
He said there was a vast difference between asylum seekers (invaders) who arrived by boat and those who arrived on valid visas.
"People who come by boat die (I wish that were true)," he said.
Mr O'Connor said people smuggling was a global problem.
"Situations around the world mean that large numbers of displaced persons are looking for settlement in stable, democratic nations such as Australia, and can be targeted by, and fall prey to, people smugglers."
He said Australia was continuing to work with its neighbours to combat people smuggling in the region. (The only way to stop it is to protect Australia's borders properly.)
That makes seven boats so far for 2010 carrying 256 invaders.
Asylum seeker (invader) boat carrying 48 intercepted

Home affairs Minister Brendan O'Connor said HMAS Launceston, operating under the control of Border Protection Command, picked up the vessel around noon yesterday 12 nautical miles north-east of Ashmore Islands.
Authorities said there were 48 passengers (invaders) and three crew on board the vessel.
That's eight boats and 304 invaders so far for the year. It is only quiet now because it is the wet season up north. The real flood of invaders will happen in winter.
