On seeking asylum...

Prime Minister Julia Gillard has signed with Malaysia to effect the Federal Government's Immigration Policy which will see the next 800 Aslyum Seekers who arrive by boat sent to Malaysia in a swap for 4,000 verified refugees who are waiting in camps there. The 800 covers all seekers including children unaccompanied or not.

It is stated that this will be a measure to prevent people smugglers plying the illegal boat trade.
