Of course thay had no legal right of entry. The UN convention on refugees clearly states the legal right to asylum in the first safe country. That would give these illegals a claim of asylum in Indonesia, Malaysia or anywhere else they stopped on their way here. After that they are clearly illegal immigrants, trying to bypass the legal channels, therefor those that take money to knowingly aid &transport them are clearly breaking the law. That is why they always try to land in a deserted area, rather than sail into port.
