Australia: _____loses bid to halt deportation over criminal convictions

[smh.com.au – 8/7/18]

A middle-aged man who has lived in Australia for 50 years has lost a court bid to halt his deportation after his visa was cancelled on character grounds.

______, 57, migrated to Australia from the United Kingdom when he was seven, and until recently lived at Batemans Bay on the NSW south coast where he worked as a tradesman.

  1. totally against public registry

    It’s horrifying what governments do to their own people. This man has lived in Australia almost all of his adult life and now he will be sent back to a country he doesn’t even know or have any relations with?

    “Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said there was an “unacceptable risk of harm to the Australian community” if David Degning remained in the country.”

    Is the word “unacceptable” a legal and factual word that the country and the courts stands by? Lots of crap is unacceptable but if it’s not illegal or direct proven risk of harm, then let him live his life with his family.

  2. Hysteria

    These countries are essentially purging to attempt to create pure societies. Ironic that a country built on convicts is treating others this way.
    Moral character is the new catch phrase used. This can be placed as an obstacle for literally any reason not to allow a person entry.
    Yet most officials are the sludge at the barrel’s bottom when it comes to morals OR character. Just look at what we have in charge.

  3. NY won't let go

    Australia and the US are stupid in the sense that they were technically founded by criminals and yet they have turned into something much worse

    All these countries are just bowing to the US and parroting the political wave. Face it, there is no downside to passing as tough as you can sex offense laws. None, no accountability, no consequences, and the constitution is just an obstacle that they have to navigate around. And yes this country, and Australia were indeed founded by scandalous deviants that fought for what they believed in. Even if someone has bad character and have made a mistake they should not be defined by that one bad choice that violated some supreme moral code. And last I checked, at least not yet, bad character isn’t illegal.

    England sent convicted people to the colonies, because the numbers of laws created too many prisoners for the economy to handle. They used to just hang the extra, but since the new world opened up, exporting them made the leaders feel more humane and enlightened. Besides, going to the colonies was often a death sentence because of the wilderness.
    Now where are countries going to send their criminals? No country is an island anymore. If they send a dispised one back to England, England can send their despised Australians back to Australia. Who ever truly gains a safer country this way? It’s almost comical.
