"we call it detention - but its not, its prison" "we asylum seekers are looked at as a business..... that money should be going to Gaza"
"I can be detained any time and sent back to the country where I am going to cut girls. This country, it talks about FGM but they want me to go back to perform FGM on those girls."
"We asylum seekers are looked at as a business, all about us is business, when you go to the housing they are making a lot of money, in detention Serco is making a lot of money, people even who are deporting us they don’t care because they need the money, to have their money in their pocket. If you die or whatever happens to you, they don’t care"
"If somebody kill someone, you are innocent until you prove yourself guilty, but if you are an asylum seeker you’re guilty from the first time. They don’t want to listen to you all they want is to put you in detention, the next minute they book a flight for you and take you back to your country. If you die or not, they don’t care yet this is the country that is saying they are the most supportive of human rights."
