The Invasion continues in 2011.

Stay up to date at Australian New Nation.

Here's boat number one for 2011 -

Navy intercepts asylum-seeker (invader) boat


A NAVY vessel has a boat suspected of carrying
90 asylum seekers (invaders) west of Ashmore Islands.

HMAS Glenelg, operating under the control of Border Protection Command, intercepted the suspected irregular entry vessel
(invader boat) last night.

Initial indications suggested there were
90 passengers (invaders) and two(smugglers) on board the vessel, Home Affairs Minister Brendan O'Connor said in a statement today.
The group will be transferred to Christmas Island where they will undergo security, identity and health checks and their reasons for travel will be established.

The latest interception - the first for 2011 - brought to more than 10,000 the number of people who had arrived irregularly by boat since Labor unwound the border protection policies of the Howard government, the opposition said.

"How many more people will need to arrive before the government acknowledges it has no solution?" border protection spokesman Michael Keenan said in a statement.

He said Australia's detention network was at breaking point.

"The government needs to come clean with the Australian people and explain where all these asylum seekers
(invaders) will now go." (That is easy since once the Greens hold the balance of power in the senate on July 1st they will be staying in the community right next door to YOU within 14 days of arrival!)


So, it only took four days into 2011 for the first boat to arrive, I wonder how many boats will come this year? For the record 2010 saw 135 boats carrying 6,507 invaders and 327 reported smugglers. What they don't tell you is the amount that will come in under the family reunion scheme which would push up the numbers to over 65,000.
