Abstract

On the 30th of October 2016, the Australian government announced that it would be introducing a law into parliament banning asylum seekers from entering Australia. This law will make it illegal for asylum seekers who were sent to a regional processing centre on Nauru or Manus Island after 19 July 2013 to enter Australia. Even those who are found to have a genuine claim to refugee status will never be able to come to Australia, nor will they be allowed to enter as tourists.
