Permanent visas now

Whatever language we speak or the colour of our skin, we all have dreams. But back when he was Immigration Minister, Scott Morrison shattered thousands of dreams by rigging our immigration system against people who crossed the sea in search of safety.

The Albanese government has promised to restore permanent protection and create an independent tribunal that can review refugee decisions in a fair way.

But even these welcome changes will leave thousands of people failed by Morrison’s rigged system living in fear of being torn from our communities and forced to danger.

All people denied protection under Mr Morrison’s rigged “Fast Track” system and those still living with Temporary Protection or Safe Haven Enterprise Visas need permanence now.

It's time we let the 31,000 men, women and children who've lived as part of our community for a decade have the safety and stability we all need to reach our dreams.
