Asylum seekers should be welcome here

Another tragic reminder of the human cost of our government's policy on refugees and asylum seekers. Three people dead by their own hands because of the unnecessary cruelty and bureaucratic nightmare that they were forced to go through.

I hope their deaths can go some way to moving public opinion to force the government to take a more humane approach towards those seeking shelter and a new home. It doesn't matter which side of any line on a map you were born. People are still people, unless perhaps they work for the Home Office.
