For the 205th man on Manus Island

Dear Prime Minister,

New Zealand has offered again to take some of the refugees from our offshore detention prisons. Why have you not accepted? Your statement "This offer from NZ has been available for some time and it is one that we appreciate but our focus is on completing the arrangements with the United States." makes no sense. Why does the resettlement offer from the United States preclude the New Zealand offer, especially as even if the US take the full number in the agreement (1250) there will still be refugees left behind who will need to be given asylum.

Of course, you could always do the right, low-cost, legal thing and resettle them in Australia.
