the hard life of immigrants in Australia
Rapporteur- Farbod Dehghani: Australia will be never your homeland. This famous add is broadly advertising in all countries especially in Middle East. The Australian government also showed that it’s very firm on it’s decision with it’s performance.
Though the huge amount of criticizes has been reached to the government performance, nothing has been changed till yet and that caused people who see death of their families and friends on the way to reach to the soil of Australia become depressed.
The Turnbull Government is set to get even tougher on asylum seekers, with plans to ban many 'boat people' from ever getting Australian visas of any kind.
The tough new proposals, announced on Sunday, would see asylum seekers outlawed from setting foot in Australia permanently even if they turn out to be genuine refugees
"I'm announcing the government will introduce legislation in the next parliamentary sitting week to amend the migration act to prevent irregular maritime arrivals taken to a processing country for making a valid application for an Australian visa," Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said on Sunday.(1)
Refugee advocates said the plan was unacceptable.
Lawyer David Manne, from the Refugee and Immigration Legal Centre, said the move, expected to be introduced into Parliament next month, would punish refugees.
"The majority of these people are refugees, and the policy is rapidly destroying them," he said.
"This does nothing to address that fundamental question about where they are going to be taken so that they can rebuild their lives in safety and with dignity."
Save the Children said the decision would also cruel the chances of many refugees from reuniting with their families who are already in Australia.
"We know from our past experience working on Nauru that these kinds of announcements can lead to significant unrest and despair among the refugees and asylum seekers who are barely hanging on after spending, in many cases, over three years living in limbo," Director of Policy and Public Advocacy Mat Tinkler said.
"Without offering these children and their families a realistic, humane and viable resettlement option, the Australian Government is only further exacerbating the mental anguish and loss of hope that we have seen build on both Nauru and Manus.(2)
