The deportation of Australia’s chief medical officer from Nauru shows the entire regime of offshore detention is crumbling, Greens Immigration spokesperson Nick McKim says.
“This is a humanitarian emergency, and Scott Morrison has lost control of his detention centres,” Senator McKim said.
“His entire offshore regime is crumbling before our eyes.”
“This deportation confirms that there is no way for Australia’s prisoners on Nauru to receive proper medical support.”
“The Greens’ legislation would require every child detained on Nauru, and their families, to be immediately brought to Australia for the medical treatment they so desperately need.”
“Every MP – Liberal, Labor and crossbench, must act urgently to resolve this humanitarian crisis by supporting the Bill.”
