The Pacific solution is a gross violation of international law
The Australian "Pacific solution" is clearly against human rights. The Australian government is clearly trying to manipulate internal law into refusing international law protecting the human rights of immigrants and refugees. Its leading position in the area allows it to get nearby island states, such as Nauru and the other "prison islands", as supporting satellites enabling Australia to implement this gross violation of international law.
