Australia/USA Refugee Deal

Can someone help me understand this.

A deal was struck between Obama an Turnbull (Australian Prime Minister) about some refugees being held on Nauru and Manus islands. The deal is now under threat because of Trump's incumbency.

Whether the deal is honored or not is another issue. What I can't understand is why the deal was made at all.

The ruling right wing coalition government in Australia, have long trumpeted their stance that illegal immigrants will not find asylum in Australia, so they put them in not so savory places such as Nauru and Manus.

The theory behind this is the boats will be stopped, if those wishing to come to Australia this way, will not get what they want. All the time while espousing this idea, (and wiping a tear from their eye), claiming the motivation behind it is to stop boat people from drowning at sea.

Now if these people are going to finish up in the USA were is the deterrent?
