Shadow Immigration Minister Scott Morrison on the latest arrivals, which have contributed to 2012 being a record year -- and it's only July.
Alan Jones and Tony Abbott discuss asylum seekers,foreign ownership and funding for Australian athletes.
“Only stubborn pride has stood in the way of the Prime Minister’s refusal to reinstate those policies and Australians are paying the price.
“Julia Gillard has the worst record in our history on border protection, which combined with her other failures makes her a strong candidate for our worst Prime Minister on record,” Mr Morrison said.
Mr Keenan said: “This latest boat arrival has made 2012 the biggest year for people arriving illegally by boat ever – and it is only July.
“We have another shameful record broken by this incompetent Labor Government who have now allowed over 1,600 people to cross our borders illegally this month alone.
“These unprecedented numbers have exposed the gaping holes that Labor have created in our border protection system and have made the job of our Border Protection Command all the more difficult.
“Until there is a change in Canberra and an end to the Labor-Greens governing alliance, the boats will keep coming and the records will keep breaking,” Mr Keenan said.
