Civil Liberties Australiaspacer

There’s one rule for boat arrivals, another for air arrivals: why does Australia discriminate, treating the two arrival classes differently, and why does Minister Dutton allow freeloaders to overstay in Australia for decades? Tens of thousands of people whom the Immigration Minister has “lost” live and work here, probably paying no taxes and cheating the Australian economy and people. While Minister Dutton is fixated on fewer than 2000 people on Manus and Nauru, he ignores more than 12,000 people who have been here – illegally – for more than 20 years: not to mention more than 50,000 others who have overstayed here a shorter time.

Other items in this issue include:

  • Who will be our rep on the Human Rights Council?
  • What does prison cost Australia?
  • Judges rule police must pay $90,000 security to continue their appeal
  • Indigenous communities to turn technology back on police
  • Brits to abandon fundamental rights

Commenting ...our policy

We welcome comments, for alternative views and to generate debate. We check comments before they are published, to make sure they are on-topic, family-friendly and in keeping with our publishing principles. To make sure your comments are published, please...

  • stay on topic
  • leave out swear words and bad language
  • be careful not to libel or defame any body
  • do not be -ist: (race, age, sex, etc)
  • avoid posting someone else's copyright material, and
  • concentrate on the factual more than the emotional (though there's room for both)
If your comments stray from these principles, they may not be posted, or may be edited to remove bits we find offending or inappropriate.

If you see something in a comment that you think is objectionable, please let us know your reasons.

We usually post comments at the bottom of articles, with a link off the Home page as well. But we may use them elsewhere, or as a separate article (we also reserve the right to not post them at all, at our sole discretion). See also our Terms of Use and Privacy policies links below.
