How Jim Molan voted compared to someone who believes that people seeking asylum in Australia, who arrive without a visa and particularly those who arrive by boat, should be held offshore in an Australian territory like Christmas Island while their application is processed (See the policy "For regional processing of asylum seekers" for more on processing asylum claims in other countries, like Nauru)
|Division||Jim Molan||Supporters vote||Division outcome|
23rd Jun 2021, 4:22 PM – Senate Motions - Immigration Detention - Let Murugappan family return to Biloela
17th Jun 2020, 4:13 PM – Senate Motions - Asylum Seekers - Resettlement
The same number of senators voted for and against parts (c)(ii) and (d) of the motion, which means they failed.
How "never voted" is worked out
Normally a person's votes count towards a score which is used to work out a simple phrase to summarise their position on a policy. However in this case Jim Molan was absent during all divisions for this policy. So, it's impossible to say anything concrete other than that they have "never voted" on this policy.
