Description

  • The majority voted in favour of a [http://www.openaustralia.org/debate/?id=2012-11-27.103.12 motion] to read the bill a [http://www.peo.gov.au/learning/fact-sheets/making-a-law.html second time].
  • This means that the majority agree with the main idea of the bill and that it can now be discussed in greater detail.
  • The main idea of the bill is to ensure that asylum seekers who unlawfully arrive anywhere in Australia are subject to the same regional processing arrangements as asylum seekers who arrive at an excised offshore place such as [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas_Island Christmas Island].
  • ''Background of the Bill''
  • This bill was introduced in response to a report by the [http://expertpanelonasylumseekers.dpmc.gov.au/ Expert Panel on Asylum Seekers], particularly Recommendation 14 which states that: "the [http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/consol_act/ma1958118/ ''Migration Act 1958''] be amended so that arrival anywhere on Australia by irregular maritime means will not provide individuals with a different lawful status than those who arrive in an excise offshore place".(Read the full report [http://expertpanelonasylumseekers.dpmc.gov.au/report.html here]. )
  • By implementing this recommendation, the bill extends the excision regime that was introduced in 2001 following the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tampa_affair Tampa affair]. That regime provides that asylum seekers who arrive in Australia at [http://www.refugeecouncil.org.au/f/as-exc.php excised offshore places] are unable to apply for protection visas (in effect, refugee status under Australian law) unless the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship decides it is in the public interest that they do so. The effect of this bill will be to extend the excision provisions to the whole country.(More information on the [http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r4920 Migration Amendment (Unauthorised Maritime Arrivals and Other Measures) Bill 2012] is available on the [http://parlinfo.aph.gov.au/parlInfo/download/legislation/billsdgs/2282415/upload_binary/2282415.pdf;fileType=application/pdf bills digest] (680 KB). Also see an ABC news report explaining the effect of this bill [http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-05-16/parliament-excises-mainland-from-migration-zone/4693940 here].)
  • This means that all asylum seekers arriving by boat in either mainland Australia or an offshore Australian territory that has been excised are unable to apply for protection visas and will be sent to regional processing countries (currently [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manus_Island Papua New Guinea] and [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nauru Nauru]) for the processing of their refugee claims. The rationale behind this legislation is the need to discourage asylum seekers arriving in Australia by boat because of the dangers involved.

Description

  • <p> This is a vote on the second reading of the Bill in the House of Representatives. The majority voted aye, which means these members support the main idea of the Bill. </p>
  • <p><b> Background of the Bill</b></p>
  • <p>This Bill was introduced in response to the report by the <a href="http://expertpanelonasylumseekers.dpmc.gov.au/">Expert Panel on Asylum Seekers</a>. This Bill addresses Recommendation 14 from this report, which advised that the <i> Migration Act 1958 </i> be amended so that persons that arrive by arrive by boat either in Australia or in offshore locations (such as Christmas Island) have the same lawful status. This means that asylum seekers arriving in Australia or in an offshore location are treated the same way under law.</p>
  • <p>This Bill means that asylum seekers arriving by boat in either Australia or an offshore location are unable to apply for protection visas. Instead, these people will be sent to regional processing countries (currently Papua New Guinea and Nauru) for the processing of their refugee claims. The rationale behind this legislation is the need to discourage asylum seekers arriving in Australia by boat because of the dangers involved. A new term for such persons, 'unauthorised maritime arrival', has been developed to cover asylum seekers who arrive in Australia by sea and are unable to apply for a protection visa.</p>
