A joint ticket on released detainees
On Monday, we told you about the release of a group of people from immigration detention following a landmark High Court ruling a week ago. The court ruled that non-citizens can’t be indefinitely detained if they’re unable to be deported, and yesterday, Immigration Minister Andrew Giles confirmed that 81 detainees had been released. Among them, 3 murderers and several sex offenders… Giles says they must check in with authorities daily. Under pressure from the Coalition in Question Time yesterday, Giles said the Albanese Government argued against the detainees’ release in court, and said there’s a “shared rejection and revulsion” at the men’s criminal conduct. He also said he’s looking into legislative and regulatory options in response to the ruling.
