The announcement by Minister for Immigration Scott Morrison that Australia will refuse to resettle refugees who sought protection in Indonesia after June 2014 will cement Australia’s reputation as a bad neighbour, the Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA) said today
This submission strongly opposes the Bill that would retrospectivley authorise the actions of the Australian Government in taking people to Ashmore Reef so that they were treated as offshore entry persons.
The Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA) welcomes today’s announcement that the Victorian state government will significantly expand training opportunities for people seeking asylum and refugees over the next two years.
