‘Social time bomb’: UNHCR’s warning on the plight of 30,000 asylum seekers already living in Australia

Good news for people seeking asylum on Nauru and Manus “Mr Turk (UNHCR) has also expressed confidence that all of the asylum seekers who have been held on Nauru and Manus Island for more than three years will be settled elsewhere following the deal with the United States. While the majority would be resettled in the US, he said it was important “that other countries come in as well”.

Joyce Tozer Many need to know they can be reunited with family already in Australia. It is cruel and criminal to keep families apart forever.

Shelah Margaret Johnston So sad. So many thousands of people in limbo in our community with no access to basic human rights and traumatised by the uncertainty of the safety and security of their families. Si cruel. A system that drastically needs an injection of compassion. Wish I was in a position to influence the government in real terms. The last thing I said to a group of mother’s on Christmas island prior to their transfer to Australia mainland was get fit and strong. It is going to be more difficult than detention once you are abandoned (other than nonprofit organisation s ) in Australia.
