Want to Change Australian refugee criteria? “Don’t experience extreme trauma”, says Sharman Stone

More news about boat peoples’ boatish ways! (For more information about this important issue, see Boat people ‘twisted and warped by their boatish ways). They are making a second attempt at a life free from persecution in Australia!

Paul Maley at the Australian reports that

“At least a dozen of the asylum seekers who have arrived in the current wave of boatpeople are return visitors, some having been granted temporary protection visas and others having been rejected after arriving on the now-infamous MV Tampa”.

Paul says that:

“The figures will reignite the debate about the effectiveness of the controversial visa scheme”.

Not only that, but this information has already ignited Sharman Stone, Coalition’s immigration spokesperson, to confuse the issue with nonsense once again..

Sharman says that the Coalition will be watching the processing of two-time asylum seekers very closely, and

“If they haven’t experienced extreme trauma in the intervening years since their first rejection, then the Coalition will demand to know how the criteria for refugee selection has changed”.

The criteria for refugee selection will change if they haven’t experienced extreme trauma?
