Why overstay?

The Immigration Department in Australia has done a study into those who remain in the country illegally:
Most respondents displayed a 'dig in and resist to the end' mentality (and) they had a strong sense of their personal entitlement to stay in Australia," the report said. "They believed the system was there to be exploited and no decision was seen to be final.

Bear in mind that the following quote comes from an official source:
The report said many of the surveyed asylum seekers were drug addicts and had mental health problems. They had a general attitude that the department lacked credibility and was "just trying to get rid of people".

  1. Since said people are not residing legally, why shouldn't they get rid of them?
