Fed: No go for boat people - but air arrivals fare better

No asylum seeker who arrives in Australia illegally by boat can expect to stay under
a new hardline immigration regime announced yesterday.

However .. the policy does not apply if you arrive illegally by air.

The announcement has come from Immigration Minister AMANDA VANSTONE .. who says the
new policy is quite specifically targeted at unauthorised boat arrivals.

She says it also does not apply to the vast majority of people illegally in Australia
now .. who arrived on valid visas, but overstayed their welcome.

The Senator won't say how much the new regime will cost taxpayers .. but Labor already
says it'll be expensive.

The announcement follows the arrival by boat of 42 Papuan asylum seekers .. who have
been granted temporary protection by Australia.
