Immigration Minister Chris Bowen said new beds would be made available on the Australian mainland in a bid to relieve pressure on Christmas Island.
Not that it buys us any favors:
“As a Muslim you must have allegiance where the Sharia says that you have allegiance. You must hate and love for the sake of Allah. You must praise and dispraiseÂ for what the Sharia says you praise and dispraise. So as a Muslim I must support my Muslim brothers and sisters, wherever they are in the world. I must have allegiance with them. I must co-operate with them. I must love them. And similarly on the other hand I must have hatred towards everything which is non-Islam …”

This will take Darwin’s immigration detention capacity to 2,900, eclipsing Christmas Island’s ability to hold 2,600.

You can help to stop the Islamisation of Australia. To counter Islam it is necessary to understand the scope of this ‘total’ way of life which controls both public and private life.
probably the most deadly type of totalitarian ideology ever invented by human kind.
Darwin’s Â Bishop Hurley’s Bleeding Heart is Part of the Problem:
“we are part of a global family and we have to understand…”
THE Federal Government will build a 1500-bed immigration detention centre in Darwin to ease the pressure on the overcrowded system. (NT News thanks to Rossco)
The centre is being constructed on Wickham Point by John “Foxy” Robinson, who intends it to eventually house workers for the $23 billion Inpex gas project.
But Inpex yesterday denied it was in any formal discussions with Mr Robinson.
The facility will be built 35 km south east of Darwin, while capacity at Darwin Airport Lodge will also be expanded to house another 400 asylum seekers by taking over an adjacent building. Plans have been announced to add 1900 new beds to the Northern Territory capital.
This will take Darwin’s immigration detention capacity to 2900, eclipsing Christmas Island’s ability to hold 2600. It will also be the biggest detention centre on the Australian mainland.
Federal Immigration Minister Chris Bowen said the new centre will be used for single adult men, cost $9.2 million, have 500 men housed by June and be completed in December.
Mr Bowen said this centre replaced the planned $185m centre at the 11-Mile Antenna Farm outside Darwin.
The Asti Hotel in Darwin will cease to be a detention centre. Inpex’s Tim Larcombe said the company planned to offer their construction workers a purpose-built accommodation village at Howard Springs and not Wickham Point.
“We are not considering another location,” he said.
Mr Robinson said that he had offered the site to the Federal Government.
Bishop of Darwin Eugene Hurley said the majority of people who came to Australia by boat were genuine refugees and detention centres became “mental illness” factories.
“It wouldn’t matter who we were or however wonderful the facility was we were in, without our freedom and no certainty of our release,” Bishop Hurley said. “This is what drives people to self harm, depression and attempted suicide. You have got to understand we are part of a global family and we have to understand the majority of these people are fleeing situations so dire any of us would do the same.”
The centre was not expected to replace plans for an off-shore detention program in East Timor.
NT Chief Minister Paul Henderson said it was a Federal Government matter but he would “ensure there were positive outcomes for Territorians”.
