J4RSA Response to Government Announcement
Justice for Refugees SA applauds the federal government’s recent announcement to transition 19,000 refugees on temporary visas in Australia to permanency. There has been much joy shared with those people who can finally call Australia home. So too, do we commend the Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural affairs, the Honorable Andrew Giles, for the time that he spent speaking with people in Adelaide on Monday 20th February. His compassion and concern shone out. We thank the Member for Adelaide, Steve Georganas MP for organising this visit.
Our work is not complete while we still advocate for those the 12,000 people who were not included in the announcement. We will be calling on members to join us in this advocacy.
