Refugees and asylum seekers are systemically forced into abject poverty due to their inability to work and now they have the added burden of health care ambiguity? Health care is a basic human right and when an individual is seriously ill or injured they grow increasingly vulnerable. For individuals already in a precarious state this resolution must be dire. I find this is nothing short of government mandated eugenics, and most appalling indeed.
