Australia gets 10 times less asylum seekers than the UK or the US, and 5 times less than most individual European countries. 80-90 percent of the world's displaced people don't even go to developed countries, they end up in the country next to the one they flee. I can't help but feel like Australians are just complaining whenever they mention this issue. And I say this as someone who was born Australian.
