Does the Rudd government care what happens to refugees when sent home?

A helpful reminder how the Australian government is failing legally, morally and politically by refusing to listen to legitimate claims for refugee status by Sri Lankans and Afghans:

Immigration Minister Chris Evans has rationalised this suspension of due legal process on the unsustainable grounds that in three months the situation in both Sri Lanka and Afghanistan might have improved. Clearly he is receiving poor advice about the situation on the ground in both places, and perhaps does not even read daily newspapers.
