    I think Mr.Sam put this because of our inquiry to share our planet and give them a chance even though they didn’t do a good thing. I think people tried to get to Australia because they knew they did a bad thing so they might’ve wanted to live a better world and live peacefully not blamed from others. This is connected to our unit of inquiry because the asylum seekers wanted to come to Australia and if lots of the people in Australia did not agree to come to Australia lots of people should’ve died. At least Australia didn’t protest or anything they were kind of sharing their land. Just like it means to share the planet and this planet is full of lands, borders and etc.
    Asylum Seekers means:
    asylum seeker

    —n
    a person who, from fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, social group, or political opinion, has crossed an international frontier into a country in which he or she hopes to be granted refugee status

    In Korea it’s called, 망명 신청자.(mangmyeong sincheongja) http://search.naver.com/search.naver?where=nexearch&query=asylum+seeker&sm=top_sug.pre&fbm=1&acr=1&acq=asylum+se&ie=utf8
    When I searched it in Korean, it helped me to understand more deeply.
    I couldn’t find where this situation happened on google maps but I found a picture of where the asylum seekers went.
