How can the crisis on Manus Island be resolved?

Asylum seekers sit on the ground as they refuse to leave the Manus Island detention center in Papua New Guinea
The U.N. Human Rights Committee said on Thursday Australia should bring its migration laws into line with worldwide standards.
The offer to take in 150 refugees from Manus Island and Nauru has been on the table since 2013 but is an issue Ms Ardern has gone hard on since becoming prime minister.
This has previously been resisted, with official concerns that it would create a small group of "second-class citizens" in New Zealand that don't enjoy free access to Australia. "I see the need and the role New Zealand needs to play", she said.
"Australia does not have the right to reject New Zealand's offer", Boochani said. "If these people are taken in by New Zealand it will effectively be a back door into Australia", he said in a reference to the 1000 asylum seekers who died while travelling by boat to Australia between 2007 and 2013.
Ardern, who previously reiterated NZ's offer, criticised Australia's unyielding stance on Sunday. There remains a significant Australian Border Force presence on Manus Island, and Australian officials have the ultimate authority on critical issues such as medical transfers.
But Ms Adern's criticism of Australia's handling of the refugee crisis on the island - which she has described as unacceptable - has prompted a warning from New Zealand's opposition for her to tread carefully.
Why Entrepreneurs Carry Business Cards
You will have to wait for them to visit your website or store later and this can mean they’ve already forgotten about you. If you succeed in creating a memorable business card, you don’t just connect deeper with the person you gave the card to.
The NZ prime minister made the offer during her first face-to-face meeting with Mr Turnbull in Sydney a week ago.
The approximately 420 asylum seekers and refugees choosing to remain at the now-closed Manus Island processing centre have been without food, water or medical supplies for nearly two weeks.
Newshub has been briefed on the deal and can reveal that Ms Ardern is happy for Australia to place an order on any refugees that they can never travel there. The crowd were watched by a dozen police but their demonstration ended peacefully.
"The people on Manus need our help, they have committed no crime and shouldn't be locked up for exercising their right to seek asylum", said Emma Cullen, spokesperson for Peace Action Wellington.
"Australia has illegally detained these asylum-seekers for years now, and now they've essentially abandoned them and they've got no food, no water, no medicine, and no power".
U.S. considers special investigation of Clinton Foundation
At a House Judiciary hearing Tuesday, Sessions stressed the "factual basis" that must be met to warrant a special counsel, as Rep. Trump is frustrated with the continuing investigations into Russia's election meddling and possible ties to his campaign.
Nintendo making Mario movie with USA studio
But because it's still in the early stages of development, we'll probably have to wait several years for its release. Back in 2014, Sony was in talks with Nintendo for an animated Super Mario Bros . film but a deal was never announced.
