The article focuses on the fate of asylum seekers in Australia who were deported and returned to their homes. It notes the investigation by the Edmund Rice Centre which found the dangerous circumstances facing 35 out of 40 deported asylum seekers and the ABC TV report which unveiled that some asylum seekers prefer detention to returning home. It states that unconscionable refoulements violate Australia' commitments under international law and deported asylum seekers need to be monitored.
