 The Tamil family saga continues—very expensively!

10.06.21.  While digesting the ‘return of the Tamil family’ it should be remembered in the moments of enormous compassion that this family has been relentless in its refusal to accept the many court decisions that has cost the taxpayers about $6 million, but Labor cares not about that—their record on border control is historic.  Sky News host Peta Credlin says it is not right to try and paint the issue of illegal immigration on the argument of “compassion on the left versus cold-hearts or cruelty on the right” and it is not immoral to “stop the boats and keep them stopped”. “There’s nothing compassionate about deaths at sea, there’s nothing compassionate about lining the pockets of criminal people smuggler gangs that prey on the vulnerable,” she said. “There’s nothing compassionate about a limited amount of resettlement places in this country going mainly to young men who can pay their way here from the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent while leaving women and children for years and years, in the world’s most over-crowded refugee camps.”

Ms Credlin discussed the plight of the Biloela family who have consistently been found not to meet the criteria for being granted asylum in Australia and are “still refusing to accept the Government’s offer to return them to their homeland of Sri Lanka”. “And again, another important point that should not get lost; they are not being held on Christmas Island against their will. At any time, they could elect to return to their homeland,” she said. “At any time they could join around 6,500 illegal arrivals that have gone home, including over 1,500 Tamils like them, back to Sri Lanka given the civil war has now long ended. “Instead, they have remained in detention, and with the support of activist-lawyers and others, are fighting via their children to remain in Australia.”

    The time has come for deportation.

    If the courts keep delaying, then we actually elect politicians to make or change laws to suit the needs of the day and those politicians we elect need to get off their backsides to resolve this ongoing farce.

      D.I.T.T.O. Deport them.

    • DT 10/06/2021, 11:40 am

      Deportation orders were issued, so called refugee advocates intervened and were able to obtain court orders to enable the people to remain while more court proceedings were conducted.

      Like all asylum seekers who lose their application and appeal these people are free to leave, they are not prisoners, and a flight home has been offered and rejected by them.

      So in order to maintain the no resettlement for illegal immigrants who become failed asylum seekers rule Australia is seeking assistance from NZ or US to accept them. In other words they do not get to stay here so people smugglers cannot use them as an example for new clients.

    Send them back to Sri Lanka.

    I read only this morning that some Liberal MP’s are pushing for these manipulators to be returned to Australia.

    Please list & published the names of these MP’s so we know who and what they are.

    I am fed up with the manipulation of law. A law is a law. It is not a sentiment.

    The laws in this case have been tested before the highest courts and found true and sound.

    For Labor and KK to advise and encourage people to ignore & break/ bend laws for sentiment is abhorrent.

    We have enough problems here with this farcical Rule of Law which bends and weaves at anyone’s whim.

    Apply and support the Law.

    As Credlin explained in her, not unreasonable, synopsis of the situation various attempts to pursue them according to Law has been frustrated by Lawfare. Bearing in mind Australia pays for all the Court Actions the Lawyers are on a win-win bus ride! Ou Federal system cannot afford to be duped in this manner! I guarantee that this latest attempt to invoke our sense of compassion has been aided and abetted with medical confection and conspiracy. This surely must be the end of the road?

    The bottom line at the moment is that a little girl on Christmas Island has pneumonia and deserves medical treatment, none of us would argue about that, but we might ask ourselves -what if the little girl was a resident of Christmas Island, was born and raised there and contracted pneumonia, would she be flown 1400 nautical miles to Perth in a Lear Jet at a cost of probably 5K or 10K an operating hour- One might opine that the little Christmas Island girl would be treated in the local hospital. Where are these human rights parasitic legal people when we Australians need them to argue our case re section 92 of the constitution and the bloody illegal “national cabinet?”

    If Scottie from Marketing sticks true to his previous form, he’ll eventually fold and quietly let them in, probably late one Friday afternoon when some other major news event is dominating the media.

    Mum will “have” to join the poor little three year old, who is pining for her parents. Then Dad will “have” to join Mum because it’s culturally unacceptable for a Sri Lankan woman to be separated from her husband. And Dad won’t be able leave the other daughter behind.

    Which was the plan all along.

      It’s always the PM’s fault, no consideration given to the refugee advocates and legal system they exploit for loopholes, or that the Rudd-Gillard Labor governments allowed thousands to enter Australia on temporary visas and gave them access to our taxpayer funded legal aid system.

      And that from marketing description is a Labor tag, astute observers realise that the PM was not in sales and marketing, he was senior management.

      • John 10/06/2021, 3:04 pm

        “It’s always the PM’s fault”.
        Exactly so DT. Not a great system in that like all systems it can be and is rorted outrageously but it is the system we have. The PM whoever they are, need to know that though and act appropriately. And occasionally get a bloody nose for her/his effort as thanks.

    The Howard Government created Pacific Solution and offshore detention while being processed to deny illegal immigrants who became asylum seekers access to mainland legal aid services and extended time using the court system for multiple appeals.

    Rudd Labor abandoned Pacific Solution.

    The Abbott Government created Operation Sovereign Borders and offshore detention was reinstated.

    Before posting about asylum seekers who found a way around the system to remain here, they being Rudd and Gillard Labor’s red mat treatment people, please note that most have been deported after application for asylum and appeal was lost.

    I’d send the entire family to work on needy cattle syations to repay the legal fees then piss them off bacl to their non war torn country.
