Asylum Seeker debate ‘scaremongering’

The University of Southern Queensland’s Dr Robert Mason decries scare-mongering over asylum seekers at a refugee symposium today.

Over 70 researchers from Australia and the United States have met at a forum in Toowomba to discuss how best to deal with asylum seekers.

But Doctor Mason says that Australia is not a major receiver of migrants and that scaremongering characterizes the debate over what to do about them.
