Should the refugee Tamil family which include 2 young girls born in Australia taken from Biloela be continued to be detained on Christmas Island even though they've been there for 2 years now?

By Olivia . Created on 07 Jun, 2021
It has cost the Australian taxpayer $6.7 million to keep this family on Christmas Island from 31/8/19 to January 2021. The familly were moved to Christmas Island in late 2019 after a court injunction prevented the family being removed from Australia. They have been there ever since. Mother Priya said 3year old Tharnicaa had been unwell for 10 days, with a fever, vomiting, diarrhoea and dizziness, but was not taken to hospital by the Australian Border Force staff until Sunday. Tharnicaa will turn four next week and has spent most of her life in detention. The family won a full federal court appeal in February, with the court upholding a ruling that the government’s handling of Tharnicaa’s visa application denied her procedural fairness.

They get a lot of sympathy but they still basically dont qualify and we dont want the floodgates to open again... other options should be sought for them...another country?

They are not harming anyone and just want to work and get on with their lives. Government would be taxing the money they earn whilst working so just let them stay considering they have now 2 kids born here!

$7,000,000 spent to keep them on Christmas Island? All they want is to return to Biloela and work. Boat people invasion? There is something so wrong inside of our Government.
