Dear Prime Minister,
Even if the United States takes 1250 refugees from Australia's offshore detention centres there will be approximately 400 people left behind. The Papua New Guinea government plans to close the detention centre by October. Minister Dutton was recently in PNG but has refused to discuss any changes to Australia's untenable position of leaving the asylum seekers in PNG: the refugees can't settle there and the local people can't support them. We have done untold damage to the detainees and wasted billions of dollars on this inhumane stalemate. Time is running out, Prime Minister. What are you going to do?
